Today was a crazy day. We were SO busy at work. It was a game day, and we were facing Boston, busy was pretty much a given.
We finished up some prep work, like roasting cremini mushrooms…
Hate to say it, but I am not the biggest fan of mushrooms. Although I wish I were.
Today’s soundtrack was Christmas tunes.
That Rudolph movie is my all time FAVORITE Christmas movie. A Christmas Story comes in close second…
We found this strawberry that resembled a heart when we cut it in half.
Only we would notice something like that and take a picture of it. I love when my rockstars find something and tell me that I should take a picture of it and put it on my blog!! It’s so fun!
Some rockstar salads of the night:
Wild Rice and Wheatberry Salad: Wild rice, wheatberries, green onions, celery, carrots, sliced almonds, dried cranberries, Citrus Vinaigrette.
Whole Wheat Penne Pasta Salad: Whole wheat penne pasta, carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, asparagus, red onions, shaved parmesan, white balsamic vinaigrette.
Citrus Chicken Salad: Chicken breast, grapes, apples, celery, pecans, balsamic-orange vinaigrette.
Red Chili Slaw: Shredded green cabbage, slaw dressing, paprika.
Israeli Cous Cous: Cous cous, dried figs, cranberries, apricots, slice almonds, green onions, Citrus Vinaigrette.
BBQ Chicken Salad: Grilled BBQ spiced chicken, romaine lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, onions, hardboiled eggs, blue cheese dressing.
Duck Nicoise Salad: Spinach and Arugula, Kalamata olives, grape tomatoes, red onions, haricot vert, hard boiled eggs, white balsamic vinaigrette
Played with shutter speeds on my camera with some lights!
Slow speed. Groovy.
A little faster!
We got so busy I couldn’t even think!! But we pulled through though, like always. I had a major headache all day. I was glad when service ended. After we had cleaned up and were about to leave, we decided we needed some refreshments. Hence beer 🙂
We went across the street to Brixx, a restaurant/bar that has an awesome pizza oven! Had quite a few Yuenglings. Let’s just say, you know it’s been a long day when the beer goes down like water. Oh and did it go down.
Got home and seriously contemplated posting until tomorrow, but figured what the hey! [Although technically it IS tomorrow.]
I am now off to bed!! Hope to blog a more extensive post tomorrow!! Stay tuned!!
