Easter Feaster

Happy Easter everyone!  Okay, seriously I think I have eaten enough today to keep me full for the rest of the week.  Breakfast was inspired by something I remember eating a long timed ago when we had a Hard Rock Cafe in Vancouver - a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich.

Then for lunch, I went for sushi with some girlfriends.  I didn't take any photos, because I eat sushi all the time and you can only take so many pics of avocado rolls which I've done here and here.  It was raining and blah outside so instead of going for a nice walk, I went home and took a nap with Gordita. 

But the best meal of the day, our Easter dinner, was a mexican-inspired fiesta!  We had crispy tacos filled with spicy refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes and cilantro, with a side of spanish rice, and of course, my favorite guacamole salsa.  Sorry about the blurry picture, I was in a hurry to chow down on this.

We  made strawberry-banana margaritas to drink.  Olé!

And for dessert I made strawberry/pineapple/banana "empanadas" by stuffing wonton wrappers full of mashed banana and fruit and baking them in the oven. Sooo delicious!!!

I hope you all had some great meals this weekend and enjoyed time with family & friends.  Happy Easter!
