Breeze Salad & Cheese Less Veggie Quesadillas

This morning I can say, Mike and I went for a walk around the neighborhood together. It’s something we haven’t done in a while, and it’s something Mike did on his brand new bike. He’s like a kid in a candy shop after buying his used trail bike. 

Since I haven’t been able to get a Pilates schedule, I’ve decided to walk around the neighborhood for my exercise. This weekend I got back into the groove!!

After my walk, got home to take a shower and hit the road to Orlando. Mike wanted to get to his favorite restaurant, Bahama Breeze for his Chicken Kabobs and St. Thomas Crab Claws.

 I have to admit, I did have 3 of those Crab Claws before my Breeze Salad and Cheese less Veggie Quesadillas arrived. I was proud of myself, usually I get my Bahama Rita drink and this time I ordered Water with a Lemon.

Then we battled the rain to head over to Whole Foods where I got some Dried Cranberries, Raisins and some new TPV. Mike wanted to return the Honey I picked up a while back because it started crystallizing (not a good sign).

After engaging the navigation system, we found a Costco down in Orlando and picked up some more Agave and some other goods and headed home in the rain. By the time we got home, the rain had stopped and we were able to get all the groceries out without getting soaked.!!!

Dinner was a mix of my Fresh Vegetable Salad, which I packed full of the leftover Kidney Beans and left over Chick Peas from the other day. Mike made his Potato Medley Grill.

After dinner we did the usual 60 Minutes and then Desperate Housewives. But afterwards, ABC aired something a little different. A show with Jamie Oliver called “Food Revolution”, where he goes to Huntington, W.V. and tries to reteach the way these people eat. Huntington was rated the city with the most obese people and city with horrible eating habits in the U.S. Very interested how the schools, families and community are killing themselves with all the fried, processed foods they’re eating.

It was a combination of Mike and I creating dinner tonight! Mike made his basic Sweet & Idaho Potato Fries in Olive Oil and some SPICY goodness grilled on the Coleman Grill outside.!!!

Mike told me he put some Crushed Peppers and Paprika in the mix. Then he chopped up some Cucumbers and Tomatoes Salad and I added some Olive Oil and Vinegar, Cumin, Paprika, Dried Onion Flakes, and Celtic Salt for a dressing.

Then it was time for dessert and I noticed so many Oranges calling out to me in the Kitchen, so I picked up my New VitaMix Recipe Book and found the Orange Sorbet Dessert Recipe.  It was my first time to use the Agave Natural Sugar Sweetner we got before we purchased the VitaMix at Costco.

We were so impressed with the Agave (the VitaMix Demonstrator was using in his mixes) that we baught the syrup.
