Yup, I’m going to announce the winners of the Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil (a.k.a. the best moisturizer EVER) but first you have to read through my dinner and the sushi salad recipe!
Dinner tonight was simple and light after our relatively light “streaker burritos” from Moe’s. What, you may ask, is a streaker burrito? Well, its a “naked” burrito, sans tortilla. SO DELICIOUS! We headed to the movies to see Up (a wonderful movie, by the way. Great job Pixar!) and then to the grocery store. What did we see on sale?
Overly processed, far from natural, yet oh-so-delicious fat free Ballpark hot dogs. Then we got not-so-natural, high fiber whole wheat hot dog buns. The best part about this dinner? It was a whopping 1 Point® per hot dog! I ate mine like a true Chicagoan: without ketchup! I made some oven fries on the side as well.
This was such a summery meal, and perfect for the first official day of Summer! The best part? Both the hot dogs AND the buns came in packages of 8!
And now, because my good friend Chanelle has been bugging me for it, the recipe for the sushi salad I ate for lunches this past week. I don’t have a picture of it, mostly because it wasn’t too pretty by the time I thought to take a picture. The recipe is simple though:
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1 cucumber, diced
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 1 small package surimi (fake “krab” meat), chopped
- 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp. vinegar (rice vinegar is good, but I used red wine vinegar)
- 1 Tbsp. wasabi paste
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Chill and serve!
Ok, now stop bugging me I told you it was easy!
**Drum Roll Please!**
After using random.org and coming up with comment #25, the winner of the Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut oil is:
You’ll be getting an email from me soon, and I’ll get your information on to your benefactor! You’ll have to let me know what you think of the coconut oil!
There’s some cool stuff on tap for this week but I think I’ll keep you all in suspense!
Have a fantastic night, and for the few hours that are left:
