When the Cracks visit...

I am back from my mini vacation in Florida.  I want to share the stories and memories but due to some time constraints, I will hold off for a couple of days. 

First  want to share a small dinner I had with my friends Adrienne and Nate from Crack the Plates.  I have not hosted in awhile due to my hectic schedule.  I made some time before leaving again and we had dinner at my place.  Adrienne is imposing some dietary restrictions on herself to cleanse so this was a sugar free, gluten free meal.



I made a simple salad with some blueberry basil vinaigrette dressing to start off.  Then we had some roasted red pepper soup, a recipe I have really been enjoying.  Roasting red peppers is quickly becoming a favorite for me.  We also had some mustard covered tofu that really hit the spot and added to the tang of the meal.  The cracks brought some raw brownies for us to share as well.



We chatted it up a bit after dinner, skipping our usually debate time.  We talked a bit about entrepreneurial ideas and compared and contracted Adrienne and my cooking style.  I also share some stories and pictures of my trip to Spain.  It was a light-heated night and a good per-cursor to my trip to Florida.
