Christine's Cafe

My Gville and Camp Bestie Christine lives in the best place in town. Right across from the gym! I love it and am so jealous that she can WALK to the gym. Le sigh....and you wonder why I spend at least one night a weekend at her place!

Another great thing about my wonderful friend? She often will invite me over for dinner after a gym session. She is a budding chef and like myself tries to eat healthily most of the time-potato pancakes at Stubbies aside!-, so I was pretty pumped after Body Pump one night that she wanted to test out a quick Thai pasta dish on me. (Ok, I was after spinning, but come on "pumped" " Body Pump"? That was funny!)

Sorry for the two odd looking photos. I had left my camera in the car and was tooooo lazy to get it, and well Christine's camera is more hi-tech than my little Brownie, so I was having a hard time with it. I like the first picture, but the color is way off. The bottom picture is the right colors, but has shadows. What's a girl to do? Well, post two pictures and then explain them obviously!

So, what is that lovely mess in the above two pictures? Sheer deliciousness!

Christine will have to correct me, but I believe this was whole wheat linguine with a peanut Thai sauce and chicken. The sauce is the real star here, and I know it had peanut butter, salsa and orange juice in it. I know that sounds random, and I was a little "concerned," but MY GOODNESS, this was so very good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I would even suggest tossing in red or green peppers (very crisp) and subbing the chicken for tofu...I want to try this, but I really need my very own kitchen again. Update on that project soon!

Love to all,
~the bestie good moochin' gal, Jess
