|This is one of those weekends that I wanted to end. I'm sorry to all of you because I wished it away. All the good stuff really happened on Sunday for me. Even though Tony was in NY for the convention this weekend, the boys and I still did our hors d'oeuvre dinner. The boys got to pick there meats and cheeses out of the deli department, which they find super exciting, and I went with some baked falafel (I used this recipe minus the artichoke), baked potatoes smothered in nutritional yeast and fresh red peppers all on top of a bed of crisp organic lettuce. This was so good.
I love the falafel done this way. Full of flavor, low in fat and super crispy (but not greasy)!
I had to work Saturday. I didn't mind working, it was the fact that I was working and so many of my friends were in New York where my husband was! The drunk texts by many of them at 1:30am Saturday morning were fun too, especially since I had to be up for work early in the morning. Good times. I guess at least I know I was missed! I also had an article I had to write so that put a little more on my plate. No worries though, I got everything done and I was happy with the article too! Saturday accomplished!
I was so looking forward to Sunday! My best friend from high school came over for a pizza lunch! You can never go wrong with good friends and good food! I will tell you, I have gotten to a certain comfort level with mine and Tony's food restrictions, but having my friend come over with a little one that can't have wheat, eggs, dairy or peanuts was a little scary. He's one and has allergies for all of these things. I would be devastated if I gave him anything that would remotely hurt him. I'm guessing this is how most people feel when our group comes over to eat. I made gluten/wheat free pizza for everyone. I used Bob's Red Mill's pizza dough (with a flax egg alternative)
socca made with Bob's Garbanzo and Fava flour mix. I'd never used that flour for socca before, but it worked like a charm!
(recycled photos, but the exact same pizza!)
After my lunch date was over, I had to get back to house work. I did a little laundry, also known as enough to not have everyone ask me first thing this morning where their favorite shirts are. Then I actually took a minute, watched Dirty Dancing
(love that movie - I so wanted to be a dancer) and painted my nails. I thought I deserved a little me time this weekend.
The best part...I got to pick up my man from the airport at the end of the day!
