more red foods

Van's frozen whole grain waffle + organic strawberry yogurt + strawberry "syrup" (simply thawed organic berries pulsed in the blender until smooth)

I'm not going to lie... I was so busy today that I was a little bummed I'd taken on my younger son's challenge of serving something red at every meal until Valentine's Day. It would have been way easier to mindlessly pull something out of the fridge/freezer/pantry... But, I'm not giving up after 4 meals. (Or maybe I will, but I am not giving up today.) Lunch was cream cheese and raspberry jam sandwiches, red apples and red grapes... and I forgot to photograph it. But, dinner was awesome because both kids excitedly shopped for the red ingredients and helped me to make red veggie pizza:

toppings were: cherry tomatoes + garlic-roasted tomatoes (from Whole Foods' olive bar) + roasted peppers + fresh red peppers

it took about 45 minutes to make the pizza... because every. veggie. was. placed. on. the. pizza. one. by. one.

that's ok though. i enjoyed a glass of wine and heard all about school while they worked their sous chef magic, and we ended up with this. perfection.

red veggie pizza + roasted beet salad (from Whole Foods' salad bar) + green salad with red wine vinaigrette + red apples
