I knew she was getting me a food processor, but she got me a super nice food processor/blender combo! So, naturally, I planned an excellent dinner for me, Blake, and Kristine. My mom got this for me mainly because we are trying to eat better. So, I made a very healthy dinner. I am attempting to get all my fruits and vegetable servings in, as well as fiber and protein, and have smaller portions. Here's what we had (sorry no pictures this time...):
- Tina/Barrington (T-Bear) Coladas: A drink I thought up and aptly named consisting of Rum, Cream of Coconut, Diet Tropical V8 splash, lemon juice, and ice. It was served frozen. And it was delicious.
- Honey Dijon Baked Salmon: Dill-y dijon-y yumminess.
- Pureed Vegetable Soup: This was new and awesome for me! I cooked chopped onions, carrots, and potatoes in a sautée pan until soft, and then pureed them in my blender and mixed in vegetable stock. Presto! Soup! Very hearty, like thick tomato soup. And delicious.
- Baked Potatoes with fat free sour cream and butter
Also, I got my official graduation notice through ze email today. I'll be buying the cap and gown soon. And sending fancy invitations to everyone.
Today was a good day.
