Cheesecake Strawberries

I just LOVE making things that are simple but delicious.  This isn't even a recipe, but I guarantee if you take them to a party they will be gone in no time. 

Fresh strawberries - washed, hulled, and a little bit of the bottoms sliced off so they stand up

Put cheesecake filling into a gallon-sized plastic bag.  Cut off a small corner of bag.  Pipe filling into strawberries.  Sprinkle graham crackers over top.  Sit back and watch them disappear, absorbing the praise that is inevitably coming your way.

Hummus, Tomato, and Avocado Toasts

As I've mentioned before, I like to eat light for breakfast and lunch.  I'm not usually ravenous during the day and I like to eat well at dinner.  Eating light does NOT mean eating tasteless rice cakes.  My go-to daytime meals are often ones that I find myself craving.  This is one of my favorite lunches - it's full of protein, tastes fantastic, and is easy for me to pack and prepare in the sad kitchen at my office. 

1 english muffin, split 
hummus - any flavor, but I like roasted garlic
tomato slices
avocado slices

Lightly toast muffin and spread with hummus - I like it sort of thick.  Add a slice of tomato and slices of avocado.  Eat far away from judgmental co-workers, as it's sort of messy.  But yuuuummmmmy!
