Holy Guacamole!

Ha, you just knew I was gonna have to use that title eventually (hmmmm…maybe I already have…I’m not going back to look!).  :)

But before the guac, I have to show you the yummiest snack ever.  I picked up some fresh dates at Pete’s Frootique the other day.  Today I decided to try something I saw on a blog ages ago…stuffing them with peanut butter.  OMG!!  Soooo good.  I’d like to think that mine were extra good because I used the Cinnamon Raisin PB.  Deeeee-freaking-lish.  Do this!!

I worked a little late…til around 630ish…I tend to get caught up sometimes and not notice what time it is.  Ooops.  So I was pretty hungry by the time I headed downstairs.

Thanks to my meal plan I already knew what I was going to have!  I pulled some of my black bean turkey burgers out of the freezer last night so they were ready for cooking…I just had to whip up the guacamole and roast some veggies.

In the guac: avocado, chopped tomato, fresh jalepeno, red onion, lots of lime, fresh cracked sea salt, and cumin (I didn’t bother buying fresh cilantro for such a small batch).

For the veggies:  cauliflower, carrots, and zucchini tossed with a smidge of EVOO, cumin and chili powder.  Roasted on a foil lined sheet at 450 for 15 minutes.  Sprinkled with salt as soon as I pulled them out of the oven.

The burger patty was just cooked up in a teaspoon of veggie oil in a non stick pan.  Topped with some shredded cheddar.

All together. Yummy in my tummy!

After dinner I ran to Zellers for kitty litter and Band-Aids (how exciting!).  I trolled the candy aisle and was quite proud with I left with nothing…but then might have made my way through the DQ drive-thru AGAIN.

What’s with me and DQ the last couple of weeks?  Oh well, that’s what 6 gym days in one week are for!  Right?!

I hope that dirty little Kevin doesn’t backstab Jeff on Big Brother!!! (yes, random reality TV rant…)

I've been going to DQ way too much lately also! It;s quite unfortunate that it's the ONLY fast food restaurant that's only 2 blocks from my house!!

I REALLY hope Kevin doesn't backstab Jeff!! Jeff is the best player on that game by far and he deserves to win!!

When I lived in Saudi, we'd eat dates with a small dab of cream cheese....mmmm.....

I've been on a burger kick lately, too. Turkey burgers (Mediterranean and light curried from chatelaine. com and tuna burgers from Canadian living). Oh. My.

And guac is amazing. The avocado truly is nature's buttah!

Who can resist DQ now and then? You've had me wanting a Frosty ever since you posted the pics of them last week (or the week before?) I will probably have one tomorrow and get it out of my system =-)
