Tasty Tuesday

As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve started to stray away from posting my meals. Mainly because they’re usually just normal things I throw together without much thought or a recipe. It’s been pretty similar lately but some of my last few meals have been somewhat interesting for one reason or another:

Exhibit A: Today’s lunch


Two tortillas – one with leftover black bean dip and veggies, the other with honey goat cheese and asparagus. And the last of the kale chips. (Those didn’t last long.) Just in case you were wondering, the goat cheese and asparagus tortilla is the interesting part. πŸ™‚

Exhibit B: Dinner last night


Doctored up salad – spring mix topped with a grilled Dr. Praegaer’s California burger and roasted asparagus. I don’t know what it is with me and California but I tend to LOVE veggies burgers with California in the title. <–Amy’s California burger is my fav as well! I think it’s a sign.

Exhibit C: Dinner a few nights ago


Fresh spring rolls with spicy Thai tofu, avocado, rice noodles, cucumbers and carrots with a peanut and sweet chili sauce. I paired the rolls with some of Trader Joe’s new edamame (red chile and garlic flavored – yum!) and apple slices. Fresh spring rolls mean that warm weather is around the corner right? The more I eat them, the faster spring will arrive.

Exhibit D: Tonight’s dinner

roasted vegetable salad CPK.JPG

A Roasted Vegetable Salad from California Pizza Kitchen with shrimp. It was large and tasted fresh, but CPK is definitely more pricey than I remember it being. This salad cost $19.00!!!

The company I had for dinner made the pricey salad 100% worth it…

Stephanie from Cookin’ Fanatic and Yvette from Chobani.

Stephanie and I see each other quite often, but it was my first time meeting Yvette, who is here on a business trip. Yvette is a total sweetheart and knows her stuff when it comes to Greek yogurt. πŸ™‚ The three of us had plenty to chat about over dinner and the evening was a total blast!

Now it’s time for me to get some much needed beauty rest. I’ll be back soon with an update on my back issues/plan of action.

  1. I’d be poor if I ate at CPK every night, seriously what the heck hahaha?! But agreed, definitely worth it, had a great time with you and Yvette πŸ™‚ Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and I’m definitely there with you wishing the warmer weather here asap! Oh p.s. those spring rolls look sooooo good, love that you made them at home too, perfect warm weather meal.

  6. Thanks Steph and Brittany for joining me at dinner. It always makes the business trips a lot more fun when I can spend time with really great people like the two of you.

All the best with your back and I will keep your back health in my prayers.

  7. Tasty Tuesday is RIGHT! All of your eats look amazing. I love Dr. Preaggers burgers too. I still haven’t tried Sunshine or Amy’s but so far, they are top on my list.

    Sounds like such a fun night out. Glad you are enjoying your week.

  8. I love roasted asparagus–and it’s almost in season! Hooray.

  9. sounds like a fun night!

    but 19.00 for a salad? for that price, I would think it should come with your drink and a dessert! πŸ™‚

  10. YAY! Two of my very most favorite bloggers! πŸ™‚ very jealous you two live so close to each other!

  11. those spring rolls look soooo good!

  12. yum! I <3 CPK

    I never realized that it was so pricey, I've only ever been for lunch and those prices always seem reasonable.

  13. Yummy spring rolls! I used to make them all the time last summer…I need to get back into it because they;re so delish!

  14. I eat about 1 box of Dr. P’s burgers a week – YUM!
