December 12, 2010

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!!


Vanessa 🙂
