I hung out with Psycho Holiday Baker on Sunday, helping her get supplies at Whole Paycheck to make Birthday red snapper dinner for my Dad.
I picked up an organic $10 t-shirt at Whole Foods. They are super soft–I highly recommend if you just need a plain old t-shirt.
I also picked up a nice snack/part of my lunch:
Strawberry kombucha (my fav!!) and a Greens Whey Protein bar. I had my Mom taste the kombucha and she thought it was the nastiest thing on earth. I told her not to smell it, but she did anyway. We had this whole discussion at the Whole Foods checkout counter about kombucha, it was hilarious. You can read more about kombucha here on diet-blog.
Psycho baker had me pick up some unhealthy ingredients at Publix on the way home… I cringed at this purchase.
She was making some kind of special parfait pie for my Dad (his Mom used to make it for him). At least she was mostly using whole ingredients from scratch (more natural that way), except for the Jell-o. And the graham crackers she got were on the healthier side.
Dinner was amazing!
Appetizer (for me):
Carrots dipped in olive tapenade
Arugula salad with pears, gorgonzola, pecans, lemon, and olive oil:
Homemade chipotle potato salad:
Red snapper with parsley/cilantro puree, and a roasted corn and tomato salsa:
This was amazing. The red snapper reminded me of being at the beach. It had such a clean salt water flavor. Delicious!
Then, the parfait pie Psycho Holiday Baker made:
Just has a little sliver, but much more ice cream 😉
Now, it is the start of a new week. Let’s make it a healthy one!
