Road Trip!

This yummy slaw is made of fennel! If you have not had fennel (or anise, as it is called in most markets), it is a licorice-tasting veggie with a celery-like crunch. Perfect in a slaw with cilantro, red onion, and a lemony vinaigrette. The recipe came from Cooking Light.

The folks at Gardein have some new products. They have individual serving "trios" - rice, stuffed Gardein, and sauce. This is the Thai style , and it was quite delicious. This was my first experience with Gardein. It is chicken-like in texture, but not taste. It has its own unique taste which is very pleasant.

We took a quick and unplanned road trip to Kentucky for spring break. We've never been there before, and were pleasantly surprised. We spent a few days in Louisville doing touristy stuff. The girls were happy just to swim in the hotel pool! We would like to go back and see many other things in this beautiful state. It was good to get away for a few days, especially to somewhere so warm. We were able to eat outside for most of our meals. Unheard of in Chicago in March! We found a beautiful old church for Easter. My girls look so grown up!

I love Gardein! I haven't tried the Thai style or any of the trios for that matter. The beefless tips, crispy chick'n tenders and stuffed marinara chick'n are awesome.

Your girls are so cute! :)
