Mother's Day Blueberry Almond Oatmeal Bake + Pacifica Perfume Giveaway Winner

Posted May 12 2012 12:00am
Good Evening and Happy Mother's Day!

I pretty much "milk" the whole Mother's Day thing and instead of just having a one day celebration. Mother's Day starts on Friday and continues until Sunday:)

My husband took me to my favorite restaurant- Blossoming Lotus for lunch on Friday.  This was my husband's first trip to Blossoming Lotus and he was not to excited about going to a vegan/raw restaurant.  I knew once he tried it he would love it and he did!  This made my whole weekend and Steve even wants to go back next Friday.  I am so in heaven!

The love began with an order of

Live Nachos
spiced tomato & walnut chips, zucchini tahini nacho cheese and ground pecan chorizo, topped with red onion, tomato, cilantro, scallion, cashew sour cream, and avocado dressing, served with a lime wedge 

 Steve was blown away by the taste of these Nachos and I was too!  I have order the Live Pizza before but not the Nachos and now I am literally craving them.    OMG-- these are amazing.

I also ordered my favorite Thai Green Juice-apple, lime, ginger, basil, cilantro.

 I branched out and ordered

Tofu & Greens
wok tossed tofu and seasonal greens, with sweet bell peppers, shiitake mushrooms, butternut squash, and a sweet tamari glaze, served over your choice of brown rice or quinoa, garnished with slivered daikon and sprouts. 

This dish is simply delicious. It was also huge and I was able to bring half of it home to eat for dinner.

Steve ordered the:

Whiskey Ginger BBQ Sandwich
seasoned soy curls, sauteed with red onion and a smoky whiskey ginger barbecue sauce, with romaine, tomato, micro greens and lemon wasabi aioli, on a toasted ciabatta roll .

Steve said it tasted as good, if not better than the real thing.
I can't believe it.  My hubby now likes my favorite restaurant and is an oatmeal lover, now if he can just learn to run with me then I wouldn't know what to do with myself. Ha!  Honestly, I am a super lucky lady and I love my husband just the way he is but I can dream....
Now, on to Mother's Day!  I had a really nice, long chat with my Mother this morning and it was great to catch up and send her my love.  I also shared the following recipe with her for a fabulous  Blueberry Almond Oatmeal Bake.
