good friends and more food

I've got some friends and food to share with you today. But first, Easter and spring break were great. Relaxing, productive, low-key, and just what I needed. I did venture to Northern New Jersey to see Ashley & Amanda who were home from North Carolina. For those who don't know, I've been friends with these girls since they were 2 and I was 4. I spent pretty much every waking moment with these two for the first 12 or so years of my life. We have so many memories from sleepovers to bowling and bike rides.

Amanda is getting married in 2 months and her shower was last weekend. It was so fun to see them and meet their leading men. We always have a great time, and I wished we lived closer.

 Now onto the food...

I've got two recipes to share, both gluten free and goooooood. and healthy too.

Recipe 1: Lentil-Walnut Burgers from Martha Stewart herself

Recipe 2: Quinoa Mac N' Cheese with a side of broccoli
This mac n' cheese is so light and a great alternative for a gluten free diet. JD even loved it.
Have you ever tried sauteing broccoli with garlic and oil olive? You should. It gives it a char-grilled taste and it's quite good.

With summer right around the corner hopefully 'll have a project to share sometime soon. 44 days left of school!
