what my bay wants my bay gets...

Broccoli Rabe + Sundried Tomatoes over Angel Hair Pasta

My "bay" being my husband requested this pasta for dinner and he got it. My sister likes to believe that this is all we eat. Maybe we use to eat it 2 times a week for months and months but to be honest it's been a really long time since I've made it. It has everything a delicious pasta dinner needs. Broccoli rabe, sun dried tomatoes, lots of garlic and good quality olive oil. There is usually a splash of balsamic vinegar added but I forgot and nobody noticed.

Mesclun, Avocado + Bacon Bits w. Agave Mustard Dressing

I was eating this dressing out of the blender with a spoon! The dressing is another Yellow Rose tester. There is a Mexican place in the next town over that makes a killer Honey Mustard dressing. It's not vegan so I've been making my own version with agave and mustard..blah blah blah...with very good results. Joanna's recipe though is knocking them all out of the park. DELICIOUS!!

Spicy Peanut Sauce Marinated Setian w. Sauteed Broccoli and Garlic Fries

I made the Peanut Sauce from the post below again and this time marinated some sliced seitan in it and grilled it on my not so great grill pan. I would marinate everything in peanut butter if I could. What would have made this dinner even better is if I doubled the sauce and saved some to serve over the grilled seitan.

Broccoli is just sauteed. Simple.

Garlic Fries..Potatoes tossed in oil and baked at 400 degrees in the oven. When they were very close to being done I tossed in some chopped garlic and cooked for about 5 minutes more or until garlic is cooked but not brown. It's one of the best ways to cook and eat fries.

Now I'm going to show off my child...

Reno 7 1/2 months

I took her to see the Cherry Blossom's with my in laws last Saturday. She was so excited to grab the branches and shake them all over the place. She was covered in blossoms.

Reno 7 1/2 months

She is using everything and anything to pull herself up with. I left the room for a minute and returned to see this. Reno is also starting to let go of what she is using to hold herself up with because she thinks that she can stand on her own. This has caused a few heart attack moments for me recently.

Your husband has excellent taste in food - I don't blame you guys for eating that meal all the time!! Broccoli Rabe + Sun-dried Tomatoes + Angel Hair Pasta = heavenly combination.

That salad from Yellow Rose looks so refreshing; and I like that you used that scrumptious peanut sauce for the seitan! Yum!

Aww, Reno is growing up!!! Too precious!!! :0D

We make a pasta almost like that and love it, too!

That's a great way to use the peanut sauce. I'll have to try it.
