Monday saw the passing of another year in my main squeezes birth anniversary. Happy belated (don’t worry we celebrated all weekend, I’m not a bad forgetful wifey). We finally broke down and ordered iPhones…they get here tomorrow according to package tracking! EEEEP! cannot wait! Welcome to the 21st century melissa :) In other news, I completely forgot my camera and to be honest was glad it didn’t interrupt our meal of romance at Cafe du Jour. Here’s my review from the last time we ate there.
We had a stroke of gorgeous weather this weekend and we had reason to celebrate! We dined al fresco and here’s a shot of one of Nate’s fave meals:
The big news…Nate got the formal offer of a design position he wanted and starts in 2 weeks! We couldn’t be more thrilled and relieved. I have to keep pinching myself that we’ve both come to the city so lucky and found jobs right away. We are so blessed! I also baked coconut flour chai cookies and used the recipe from Tropical Traditions. These are so good!
I rolled with swiss chard wraps for my lunches this week and made an impromptu pate from a big sweet potato. Super easy and savory!
Savory Sweet Potato Pate
-1 large sweet potato steamed
-1/4c unsweetened almond milk
-1 tbsp almond butter
-1/2 tbsp curry
-1tsp cayenne or cumin (I like both!)
Run this through the food processor until creamy and smooth and enjoy!
1. What app should I download first for the iPhone?
2. What’s in your lunches this week?
