Soooooo...it's been a ridiculously long time since I've posted. Six months!!! I took a break through the holidays that got just a little carried away. Truth be told I find myself busier and busier as my kiddos get older. I really have to consciously set aside time for me or it just doesn't happen. This blog was a big part of my "me time", and I'm making a conscious decision to take this time back.

My three year old daughter comes up with the craziest questions. I really never know what she's going to say next. For example...the other day she asked me if I knew what a "hooker" was. Before I could recover from the shock of her question she let me know that Captain Hook has one on his clothes. Oh....a HOOK. Phew! She really is a constant source of entertainment!
One of her more recent questions has stuck with me. Our conversation went something like this...

|My hubby's....hence the cheese ;)|
|My cheese-free version...still super yummy!|
I love pesto! It's so simple to make and so yummy :) The first time I made this I just threw it together because we had some Portobello mushrooms that needed to be used, but I didn't have the ingredients needed to make stuffed mushrooms the way I normally make them. I made a few tweaks this time and it turned out SO good. This will definitely be going into the regular rotation in our house!

This lactose-free "Alfredo" sauce is a great alternative to the lactose-full original. It's also a much lighter version! If you don't have issues with dairy (lucky you) you can substitute the Tofutti "Better Than Cream Cheese" for real cream cheese and the lactose free milk for regular milk ;)

I've been lactose intolerant for the past ten years, but it seems to be more severe as I get older =/ As a result I've had to find ways to make lactose free versions of some of my old favorites....like clam chowder :)
I mentioned in my previous post that I've made some changes to the way I eat and how I train. These changes resulted from a whole lot of reading. I wasn't unhappy with the progress I was making, but I wanted to learn more about my body. I wanted to make progress because of intentional and deliberate actions...not just trial and error.

So what do you do when you have one salmon fillet and need to make dinner for two? Salmon tacos! The corn tortillas and avocado really make these tacos very filling. If you need a little something more you could always serve some black beans on the side.

These sandwiches are a favorite in our home. They are so easy to throw together, but full of flavor and very filling. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
