Friday Foodie Favs: Picture Post

Ahhh, Friday; the symbolic day of crossing from the work week to the weekend!  Does it ever bother you that we get so excited about the last day of work for the week?  I know some people have other schedules, but for the most of us, Friday means the next two days are free.

But we'll probably spend part of Sunday stressing over the fact that the next day is Monday.  It's a vicious cycle I tell ya, vicious! Too bad this blog doesn't pay like my job. Oh well, one can dream can't they?

Enough of work talk.  Today should be a relaxing day to ease into an even more relaxing weekend.  But not too relaxing, there's still things to cook and exercise to...ummm...do?  So today I am just posting random pictures I've taken over the past few weeks and wanted to share with you.

Please stay to check these out and let me know what you think.  If you are interested in any of these pics, feel free to contact me for more info. I always enjoy food and health related talk!

Enjoy the pics and Happy Weekend!

Q:  Do you have a typical 5 day work week?  Do you enjoy your days or look forward to the end and count-down to the weekend?

Texas Shitake mushrooms at last week's SW Food Service Expo. Wish this was in my backyard!

Baby summer squash, figs, rambutans, kumquats, and a few other produce goodies I can't make out. Yum!

Simple scrambled eggs with fresh green onions and whole grain rye toast for Kelley. I like to make good food for my great wife!

Homemade toasted quinoa cereal with dry roasted cashews. Simplicity at it's finest!

My crazy attempt at a microwave chocolate protein mug cake.  It was good, but very misshaped.

No-bake Low-fat PB Protein Cookies

Just missing beets to complete this roasted mushroom, garlic, and Brussels sprouts medley.

Homemade salsa with a spicy peanut butter twist.  Makes the salsa extra creamy and delicious.  Sooo good on salad!
More Brussels braised with bay scallops and garlic.  Never gets old!
That's it for today.  Off to work, the store, and to work out to finish the week.  Then I'll chow on a tasty protein puree of frozen fruit and veggies with overnight oats.  Can't wait!


  1. i've seen that spicy pb and never tried it but i really want to! looks great and would probably be awesome in a thai peanut sauce!

    1. Ooooo, spicy peanut sauce would be superb! Do you have a certain peanut sauce recipe you could share? I haven't made it before, but have been wanting to.
