Lentils, Coconut, Plantains, & Curry!

Shanon, Kayla and I went to this awesome little Kenyan place in North Park. I love trying new places and ethnic food is always a huge win win in my book. When the food came Kayla told us to smell it I told her I couldn't or I might just straight face plant into it. It smelled SO GOOD! YUM.

Super fun night! I think it's safe to say we'll be back soon :)

Good Fridays :)

I had a feeling today was going to be an awesome day. It's so beautiful out!

Liz and I had a picnic lunch at the park overlooking the ocean a block from my work. I brought a salad and pita bread and she brought sliced fruit, triscuits, and licorice. YUM! We both joked about how this would be a blog post...later today I'm biking home and have a soccer game tonight. YEEEEEE! All good things.

Happy Friday everyone!

Meat Satchels

I made salmon with a lemon honey glaze and a special whisked sour cream lemon sauce for dinner. Ben refuses to eat fish and wouldn't try it.

Instead, he busted out a large hunk of prosciutto, pickles, peppercinis and a toasted everything bagel with pepper jack cheese. After carefully chopping up the pickle he began to layer his meat on the bagel so that half the meat hung off the edge. He then laid the the pickles carefully inside while explaining that pickles always fall out. So he invented a meat satchel to keep it all inside. Safe and snug. He then wrapped up all the pickles in the prosciutto topped it off and wa-la! No pickles fell out...what a pro.
