The hubs took me out on an afternoon date to the Carlsbad Flower Fields and out to dinner to one of my new favorite restaurants, The Tinleaf Fresh Kitchen! We’re only a short 45 minutes from Carlsbad, but this was our first time visiting the much talked about “Flower Fields” and it was definitely something to talk about. I just wanted to share a sampling of my favorite photos from the day….
And I had a simply wonderful afternoon with my hubs!
worked walked up an appetite, so to dinner it was! We discovered The Tinleaf Fresh Kitchen last year when we went to the marriage conference in Carlsbad and I’ve been dropping hints that I’d love to go back. Their food is organic, fresh and just divine!
The hubs got his favorite meal…
I ordered a “Craft Your Own Salad”….
with mixed field greens, balsamic basil vinaigrette, quinoa, red onions, cucumbers, carrots, and sliced avocado (and I snagged my fair share of fries from the hubs!). I love ordering this salad because you can “craft” a new and different one each time with all the dressings and toppings that they offer!
Now I’m off to finish all my baking and preparations for Easter Sunday! I’m in charge of the fruit for our Easter Brunch, so I created this colorful fruit platter.
An Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake….oatmeal, chocolate and gluten free…OH YUMMY!!!
For church I baked one of my all-time favorite breakfast cakes…Quinoa Breakfast Bake.
Nourishing Thought for The Day:
Easter says you can put truth in a grave but it won’t stay there!

Happy Resurrection Sunday! Tomorrow I will be reminded of the HOPE I have in Jesus because…
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” John 11 25-26
Easter Blessings to you and your family,
