Spicy Butternut & Black Bean Chili Quesadilla

and roasted red pepper sour cream, served with blue corn chips
I also had to order my favorite
Thai Greens- Apple, Lime, Ginger, Basil and Cilantro juice.
Oh my.... this juice makes me feel great!
My darling friend Tammy and I split the other dishes.
First of all everything was wonderful but we both went gaga over the Live Pesto and Portobello pizza. The pizza was slightly spicy from the live Pesto and the Walnut Crust was super crunchy and delicious. We both wanted to try to duplicate this at home and I think that I would even get to pull out my dehydrator and make the crunchy cracker-like crust. This is on my to-do list over the holidays.
We also loved the Quesadilla and I would order that again as well. But we first need to keep on ploughing through the menu until we have tried everything.
Wednesday turned out to be a banner day as far as eats because we ended up eating dinner at Whole Foods that evening after Indoor Soccer practice. The coach even let me play in the scrimmage with the kids so I got an added bonus workout for the day!
For dinner I hit the salad bar and loaded up on a little of this and a little of that and thoroughly enjoyed it. Today I went to Bootcamp class with a friend and then did some Christmas Shopping! I am a little shopped out now and am looking forward to our weekend. Zoe is singing in a Christmas Concert and we are going to The Nutcracker as well as a Christmas Party. That should get me in the Christmas Spirit.
I hope you all had a great day and I will check in with you tomorrow!
