Happy Weekend ladies and gents!  I hope you are in the full swing of relaxation, errand running, or anything but work!  I've been reading along with you and doing my thing in the last few days!  Today greeted us with more gorgeous sunshine and I couldn't be more thrilled.  A couple of days ago I walked over to the Ferry Building.  If you attended the Foodbuzz Food Festival, you may recognize this as the meeting spot and the fabulous market.  I work 10 minutes away from it and it's kinda sad to say this was only the second time I had walked there.  Feel free to slap my forehead for me!
Another genius move?  I left my wallet at the office.  It may be a good thing since I walked by displays of almonds and fresh almond butter like this:
Next time!

Speaking of Foodbuzz, I was sent some sauce from their Tastemaker Program. (I received this product for free but was not paid to talk about it).  I present the Bertoli Sauces:
I was intrigued by the Four Cheese Rosa Sauce and by the Arrabiata sauce.  I added some of the Four Cheese Rosa Sauce to hubby's lunch prep the other night.
This is whole wheat pasta with broccoli and mushrooms.  I topped it with organic chicken and cheese and cilantro since it needed to be bulked up a bit for a growing boy. Here is the final product:

My official taste tester really liked the sauce and said it was light and flavorful.  I only used about 2 Tbsp of it because I didn't want all the fat in there and because the meal was substantial enough as is.  I can't wait to try the other sauce.  Thanks Foodbuzz and Bertoli!

Other things that have been stuffing my stomach?  Overnight blueberry chia oats:
Delicious and filling!  Speaking of which, I've just fed myself and I am off the the most magical place on earth- Costco to buy mounds of produce for juicing and eating!

Since the last post was about foods that you love, what are foods you don't like? I have made an educated decision and I have decided that Kombucha is not for me!  I also detest black licorice and artificial flavored cherry candy.

Enjoy your day loves!

Ohhh I'd have been SO tempted by that fresh almond butter! Your overnight oats look fab, by the way :)
Contrary to you I actually ADORE artificial flavoured cherry things! I also love black licorice. I'm a freak, haha. But I really truly haaaate orange soda. I just don't like it. I do, however, love orange flave chewable vitamin C... I make no sense!

I don't like any kind of liquorice, or blue cheese.

Sounds like a fun weekend! I have never tried the Bortoli whole wheat pasta. It looks really good.

I don't like black licorice at all, or tofu. YUCK.

Mari said...

I seriously think you are my long lost sister! ayer I was at the gym and saw candy which I assumed was chocolate but when I put it in my mouth it was black licorice! I spit that sh*t out so fast!

Mmm looks like a delicious day!! I don't have many food dislikes, but I guess I don't really care for oysters? I know, think of something more interesting, Andrea! But I can't really think of anything else. I'm like a trash compacter who'll take anything!

I just bought nutritional yeast yesterday because my mom (a nurse) is convinced that vegetarians don't get enough protein. amazing nutrition stats aside, this stuff was great in my pasta last night! a perfect addition to the sauce and gave me no reason to add extra parm on top :)

I miss going to the Ferry building. It was so much fun. This summer, when I get to SF we'll have to do a meet up!

I am not a fan of kombucha either. Gross!

Mom on the Run said...

I am not a huge fan of tuna. In fact if I smell it I begin to gag. Come to find out I am allergic to it.

That marketplace would be dangerous for me. So many good eats :)
