A Week of Menu Ideas - Pho, Potato Tacos, & Pasta

We spent ALLLLLL day yesterday at the Aquarium of the Pacific!! They have penguins now!

It was so cool to see them up close - they literally swam right up to the glass and I got this awesome picture. You can even see the ones in the background standing up watching everything!! I loved it almost as much as Miss M. It was a tiring day though - the aquarium was crowded because they were "celebrating" the opening of this new exhibit.

On the subject of new things - I got the Skinny Bitch Cookbook - have you guys seen it? It has a whole section of awesome, vegan entrees. I can't wait to cook my way through it! lol.

Here's what I have planned for dinners this week:
