Soy-free lunch and wannabe Mexican dinner

Happy cinco de mayo!  While I really wanted to whip up an amazing Mexican meal tonight, I was in a hurry because I had to meet my training partners for a run.  It's our last practice before the 10k run we're doing this Sunday.

I did manage to make Spanish rice, with some veggie ground round and a side of steamed veggies with "melted" soy cheese.  There's also some perfectly rip avocado on top.  I just adore avocados!  Did you read my haiku about avocados? If I had a can of black beans I would have added it to the veggies before I put them in the oven to melt the cheese. 

And here's a pic of Preciosa's soy-free lunch:  oatmeal, animal cookies, brown rice pasta with tomatoes & mushrooms in olive oil & garlic sauce, fresh pineapple, a sunflower butter &  mango jam sandwich, and chicpeas with corn.  If it seems like a lot of food for a 2-year old, it is both breakffast and lunch.  All of it was eaten except a couple of animal cookies.

What an awesome Mexican feast! I kinda messed up and went out for sushi on Cinco de Mayo, but it's never to late to cook up a meal like this- Yum!

Thanks Hannah :) Shellyfish, my run was tough, it took me an hour and 40 minutes...considering I couldn't even run for one minute 6 months ago I'm happy that I was able to do it. We ran 8min /walked 2min. Next run I'm planning is a 12k in October, I'll hopefully be running 10min/walking 1 or better.
