Dessert instead

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a lovely night <3

Just got back from acupuncture, dinner and a super schweaty Zumba class – a trifecta of happiness 🙂

I had every intention of making a “real dinner” tonight, but when my friend Marisa suggested we go to acupuncture, stay on the downtown side of Tucson and grab dinner before Zumba, I thought it was an excellent plan.

So instead of spending some of the afternoon making dinner, I made some roons 😀



Meyer-lemon lavender


and Chocolate Almond Butter.

The house smells foodgasmical right now 😀

It was Marisa’s first acupuncture experience and she was a fan. It’s funny because I can tell when I haven’t been in a couple of weeks now- my body let’s me know it’s time to book a little acupuncture nap 🙂 Since I couldn’t see the clock, I had to ask my acupuncturist to wake me up when it had been an hour… otherwise I would have easily snoozed the rest of the night away.

Dinner was at B Line Cafe on 4th Ave:

Grilled mahi mahi tacos with avocado and cabbage, salsa, beans and rice with decaf Hibiscus iced tea.

Yep 😀

Now I’m back at the casa munching some organic strawberries for dessert…


dipped into melted cashew butter 🙂


Bed is screaming my name- night friends <3

    Cashew butter and strawberries… Yep, I think that qualifies as winning for the evening 😉

  3. Heidi on June 29, 2011 at 1:16 am

    Such a great idea to melt cashew butter and dip strawberries in it! Must. try. soon. Thanks!

    Those lemon and lavender macaroons sounds AMAZING.

    Your nails are too cute!

  6. Abby on June 29, 2011 at 2:32 am

    I need to come eat dessert at your house! 🙂 Those blonde macaroons look heavenly!

    Not related to this partic. post but it’s really hard to imagine Tucson right now. It’s pretty weird thinking about how you had 110 degrees when i’m in the negatives. Well in Celsius that it is. It’s cold, windy (the windchill lowers the ‘feel’ by several degrees and i think to placate people all the weather here has the caveat that it feels like x – which is about 4-5 degrees less than the actual temperature) and there are days of sheet rain that seems to be moving in directly from Antarctica (the closest landmass to where i live). It’s hard to imagine warmth and sun and sitting outside to eat your lunch. So thanks for reminding me that one day summer will come here too 🙂

    Wow, those eats look absoutely incredible…what a feast! I want that mexican meal now, lol! 😉 I’ve never actually eaten mexican in a restaurant before, only at home, but having seen so many glorious eating-out dishes on your blog I am definitely tempted to give it a whirl! 🙂 Glad you had such a great evening – trifecta of happiness…that’s an awesome description! xyx

    Your macaroons look yummy, and those tacos are killing me! I guess my yogurt w/ cheerios will do for now.

  10. Janiek on June 29, 2011 at 4:37 am

    I wonder if you would survive without mexican food! 😛

  11. Casey Thomas on June 29, 2011 at 4:56 am

    Strawberries plus any nut butter or even better to me…a cacao/avocado/stevia blended pudding…with dark chocolate crumbles…..holy yumballs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  12. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on June 29, 2011 at 5:55 am

    I cannot believe you stood on your feet all afternoon baking….dear lord woman, you impress me!

    And what also is impressing me is the quality of your photography in this post. Did you get a new lens or something? Or play with your settings b/c everything is just so much more vibrant and awesome and crisp. Lovin’ the pics here 🙂

    And of course, lovin’ the macaroons, too!

  13. Cait @ Beyond Bananas on June 29, 2011 at 6:22 am

    Those mahi-mahi tacos look amazing!!

    Sometimes I go on baking kicks too.. and i end up with so many baked goods.. I don’teven know what to do with them!

  14. Michelle C on June 29, 2011 at 7:02 am

    I am now obsessed with the Sally Hansen Nail Effects!!! I did the houndstooth ones last night and i’m in luuurrve!!

  15. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on June 29, 2011 at 7:13 am

    I don’t know what looks better– the tacos or the macaroons!! I guess it’ll be a tie 🙂

  16. Hillary on June 29, 2011 at 7:49 am

    Fish tacos are my new favorite summer food, and those look outrageous!

  17. Heather (Heather's Dish) on June 29, 2011 at 7:50 am

    those tacos look killer! not to mention the meyer lemon lavendar macaroons…holy. yum.

  18. kaila @ healthy helper! on June 29, 2011 at 8:10 am

    What a wonderful evening…..definitely my kind of night!

  19. Jessica @ Sushi and Sit-Ups on June 29, 2011 at 8:11 am

    mmm so many delicious foods in one post! Those tacos are giving me a craving…and it’s 8 a.m.!

  20. Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food on June 29, 2011 at 8:16 am

    ohhh your tacos look wonderful! 🙂 I need to get some more mexican food in my life! 🙂

    Hope you slept well! 🙂

  21. Claire @ Live and Love to Eat on June 29, 2011 at 8:41 am

    Cashew butter is my favorite nut butter by far – the macaroons look amazing as usual!

  22. The Teenage Taste on June 29, 2011 at 9:06 am

    I don’t think any of the ‘roons would make it to the dehydrator if I was making them. The dough just looks too delicious. I’d eat it all!

  23. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on June 29, 2011 at 9:21 am

    I think I said this before–but that nail polish is adorable!

  24. Dani on June 29, 2011 at 9:24 am

    that dinner looks amazing. i want it so bad.

  25. Jordan P @ food, sweat, and beers on June 29, 2011 at 9:40 am

    I feel like all I ever want is fish tacos and black beans. All about it.

    Also, I just am craving macaroons like a crazy person now. A picture really is worth a thousand words and those are worth the word “yummy” x 1000!

  26. Donna @ Love, Run & Travel on June 29, 2011 at 9:51 am

    Acupuncture naps are the best 🙂
    Strawberries and cashew butter? I have to try that immeditately!

  27. Arianna on June 29, 2011 at 11:09 am

    I can’t tell you how delicious those tacos look right now! SCRUMPTIOUS!

  28. Melissa @ Live, Love, & Run on June 29, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Um. Your roons look amazing. May I raid your stash!?!?!

  29. Tiff @ Love, Sweat, and Beers on June 29, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    Yum! I never liked the way hardened chocolate crumbles off of dipped strawberries. These sound easier to eat. By the way, the dinner looks great too!

  30. Dani on June 29, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Those tacos look to dieeee for!! yum!

  31. Laura (Cookies vs. Carrots) on June 29, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    Have you ever posted your macaroon recipe or is it secret? They look amazing, and I would love to know how to make them myself!
