Thinking fast

I have to type fast. G is on Spring Break this week and R has the day off from school. In other words, a busy mommy day here.

I'll paraphrase--our Easter was wonderful, with picture perfect weather for our town's Easter Candy hunt, and our weekend full of family time. We even managed a couple decent family photos yesterday:

(yes, the boys will still allow me to dress them alike for special events, but comb their hair and it is a international incident!)

So a quick update...several of you have emailed to ask me if I ate meat yesterday. I indulged in SPH's Smoked Salmon, Caper and Chive Cream appetizers, but despite the ham smelling really tasty, I just couldn't bring myself to eat it. I don't know, I don't know...we'll see where this is all headed. But for now, I am still meat-free.

A quick round-up of our meals for the week:

New Seven Layer Greek Mezza Dip (I will post soon, so excited about this one!), Seared Scallops
Bean and Green Chili Enchiladas, Mango and Black Bean Salad
Moo Shu Pork-less (just more mushrooms in place of the pork)
Grilled Pizza, Three Bean Salad, Grilled Pineapple

Now, did you happen to catch my Caramelized Onion Tutorial from a couple weeks ago on Here's a great way to use those leftover caramelized onions (which freeze beautifully):

Simply spread a bit of the onions on toasted baguette slices. Top with a sprinkle of goat, feta or even blue cheese. Broil for a minute or two and top with the fresh herb of your choice. Delish, and like the theme of this!

Have a sweet week All-

That's such a nice photo of the family! I love it. I must say...I indulged in plenty of dairy and eggs yesterday, oh how I missed it!!!
