A Freshology Day

breakfast - dinner - lunch - product review

Freshology sent me home last week with TWO bags, so Abe and I could both experience a day’s worth of meals.

Breakfast was a Rhubarb and Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin with Vanilla Ricotta and Fruit.

I didn’t bother plating the rest of the meals – just ate them right from the container!

Lunch = Curried Kabocha Squash Soup + a snack of Hummus/Pita Chips.

Dinner was a Provencal Chicken Breast, Creamy Polenta, Veggies, and Green Olive Emulsion.

To finish off the day – a non-dairy Sour Cherry Cobbler.

Everything came clearly labeled, with specific heating instructions – it’s a good option if you’re too busy to cook/have to follow a specific diet – and would make an amazing gift – maybe for Mother’s Day???

P.S. –  Nice Girls Crew Season 2 is finally available online!  And free!

P.P.S. – Abe’s cast is finally off.  Not that he’s being dramatic or anything.

Open Sesame Grill

restaurant - salads - vegetarian

Date night with Abe – long overdue…

DSCN9699

Open Sesame is a popular Lebanese chain in Long Beach that recently opened on Beverly, near Fairfax. I won Esther’s contest and scored a $50 gift certificate (<—Angelenos – don’t forget to enter my own restaurant giveaway)!

We started with their famous fried potatoes – and were given a complimentary side of Garlic Sauce to dip them in. Don’t expect them to be crispy – expect the most deliciously seasoned home fries ever.

For our main entrees, Abe went with their Vegetarian Combo

…which included some super killer hummus/baba ghannouj.

I ordered the Open Sesame Salad – and added Chicken Tawook.
