Peanut Butter, Fish Tacos, Friends, and Doctors

I think it can safely be said that almost everything goes better with peanut butter and, if you know me, I will add it to almost anything for any meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert, ... ). This week I tried a few new ways thanks to Facebook. I added it to oatmeal (along with bananas and craisins), plus made a quesadilla, also adding bananas (this would be better with dark chocolate peanut butter ... I'll have to do that next time for a dessert).

I also found time to run and have friends over a few times for some spectacular semi-homemade fish tacos. Using some gourmet fish sticks, we added a yogurt salsa dressing, fresh cabbage, pico de gallo, fresh guacamole, and cheese. All I can say ... two of us liked them enough to have them again two days later with another friend.

With a weekend full of friends, food and work, Monday brought more work, my first doctor appointment in about a year (might as well make use of the expensive healthcare I now have to pay for), plus a trip to Trader Joe's and Fleet Feet. Tuesday I was able to work, run and watch the Sacramento Republic FC win their first game, I'm looking forward to their home opener in a few weeks. In trying to catch up on everything on Wednesday, I made it to the optometrist at Costco too (first time to see one of those in almost two years), although not covered under the expensive healthcare, Costco offers a great deal and a friendly optometrist. After getting my new prescription (I'll be shopping for new glasses next week), I headed to Papa Murphy's to support Shriners Hospital by purchasing a pepperoni pizza for $5, and then finished the night at BloodSource ... giving blood and eating junk food, plus Costco's new BBQ sandwhich. With enough junk food eaten for awhile, today was slightly healthier ... peanut butter, bananas, chicken, vegetables, and freshly steamed artichokes from my Trader Joe's trip.

All those PB dishes look ok except the quesadilla. That's so wrong. Looks like you had a great week!

Don't knock it until you try it. No cheese ... just tortilla, peanut butter and banana. Some people have also added chocolate chips to it for a dessert option, that's why I'm thinking Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter.
