dinner of the week

Tonight I made myself a real dinner as part of my new plan to be more grown up (I mean, healthy).  This may be ambitious, but I hope to post about one meal each week.  Anyway, I made Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Tomato Sauce from The Sonoma Diet Cookbook, a baked sweet potato, and my mom's blueberry and peach crisp.  

I love The Sonoma Diet Cookbook!  It's based on the philosophy of 12 super foods: almonds, beans, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, citrus, grapes, olive oil, spinach, strawberries, tomatoes, and whole grains.  All of the recipes include at least one of the super foods, which are all very flavorful.  The dish I made tonight had bell peppers, olive oil, and tomatoes.  It looked so pretty in the skillet!

I've been craving my mom's blueberry and peach crisp for a while this summer (ever since I made it during our July trip to Flathead Lake) and figured I'd better make it before summer escapes us.  It's a healthy take on a sweet treat (and it uses a super food).  Caroline and I couldn't wait to take a picture before we dove right in!

In other completely unrelated news, I'm very excited (nerd alert) that I figured out how to download PDFs for school to my Kindle.  I know I'm a little late to the technology party, so if you're tech savvy, please forgive me, but it's so cool that I don't have to print out 50 plus pages a week and lug them to class in a binder.  Instead, I can have them all in my cute little Kindle, and I can even highlight and take notes in it.  If only all of my textbooks were available for e-readers...
