four of june.

this was lunch today. in honor of our nine month anniversary which we celebrated aaaalll the day long only to realize that its not until tomorrow. whoops. but it WAS my parents 27th anniversary today! & my friend Stephanie's birthday too. so still lots of reason to celebrate :)

both of these things were exquisite :)
but i ate too much. we had a light dinner tonight. carrot sticks & hummus. & a smoothie.

Avocado Lime Smoothie
seriously the easiest ever. & its like a complete meal on its own it is soooo filling. i know it sounds strange. i mean, i never thought of putting an avocado in a smootie. EVER. but if you think you really won't like it, substitute one of the avocados for 1 1/2 cups of fruit. you also won't need hardly any of the agave nectar that way.
just do yourself a favor…don't think about all of the other foods you've ever had avocado in. it kind of weirded my belly out when daniel started talking about salsa & stuff…

you need:
2 avocados
1/8 to 1/4 cup of agave nectar (depending on how sweet you like it. you could use honey as well)
juice of 2 limes (or 1 1/2 lemons. because thats what i had)
1 cup of water (because it can get THICK)
a few handfuls of ice

blend until smooth :)

Crab & Avocado Quesadilla
we broke the rules a tiiiny bit on this one to use the bacon & crab we had left in the fridge. but ooooh.
these…oh my word. the first bite was heaven. i made homemade wheat tortillas. you can get that recipe here. (i just replaced 1/3 of the regular flour for whole) that made the process a little longer, but you could whip these up in 5 minutes if you were just using store bought ones.

you need:
2 whole wheat flour tortillas
1-2 oz. of crab meat (we had imitation crab in our fridge we needed to get rid of - so i used that. the real stuff would be even better!)
a few strips of bacon
half of an avocado
1 tbs. of lemon juice
1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese

no. 1
Combine all ingredients, except for tortillas and cheese, in a bowl.
no. 2
Heat a skillet on medium heat & spray with cooking spray.
no. 3
Lay one tortilla flat & coat with half of cheese. Pour your crab mix on top. Top with the rest of your cheese.
Place top tortilla on & place in pan for a few minutes on each side (until your cheese is melted)

tomorrow is graduation day for garrett! i'm off to the rehearsal for a few. i'll post fun things tomorrow. including an AWESOME website. probably the single most helpful thing i've found so far. resources abound. can't wait to share it :)
