Tuesday:
Barley Caper Salad from Making Love in the Kitchen

Cheese Stuffed Portobellos from Simply Life







Wednesday:
Goolosh


This is one of those family recipes where I can not explain where it came from.  My mom makes it.  I used up freezer tomatoes, from the garden, for this and realized that stewed tomatoes are different from plain old frozen fresh tomatoes.

Next time I make this, and have more appealing looking pictures, I will post the recipe.


Thursday:
Curried Fried Rice from Girli Chef
I was a lucky lady.  The bf made this while I was at hot yoga  :)  As a side note, hot yoga with a belly ache = fail  :(


Friday:
Gorgonzola Stuffed Crust Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms
 First time making a stuffed crust pizza.  Used Gorgonzola cheese in the crust.

 Topped with a spinach/garlic/red pepper/alfalfa sprout sauce, goat cheese, mushrooms and caramelized onions.
 Baked for ~40 minutes.
 Interesting, but good!




DESSERTS:
I came home from work Tuesday ready to make our raw valentines cake, only to find that the link to the Rawtarian website was not working.  The website was down for 2 days  :(

But I did get the chance to make the Rawtarians Chocolate Cookies.  These guys were good!  Using my dehydrator makes me feel sophisticated  ;)
