Semi-homemade Vegetarian Meals

I've been on a vegetarian kick lately. Not because I wanna be one, but I just want to incorporate meatless meals though out the week. Here a my 2 favorite vegetarian meals I made not too long ago using a box eggplant cutlet from Trader Joes. I simply baked the cutlets according to package directions and dressed them however I want. You can find it in the freezer section.

"Baked Eggplant Cutlet with Heirloom Tomato Salad"

For the tomato salad, I combined halved baby heirloom tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, goat cheese, salt and pepper. So easy and so delish!

Luau Birthday Party

I attended a friend's 30th birthday party not too long ago. I know, another birthday party lol. Most of the occasions I've been going to recently are birthdays. They are so much fun, especially themed parties. My friend had a birthday Luau. Guest dressed in Hawaian inspired clothing, lei and and the decorations were on point. Him and his wife really put a lot of effort into it.

They had all kinds of food. Everything was delicious. His family brought homemade appetizers, while he ordered food from his favorite restaurants.

Birthday Party. Sports. BBQ Pork Ribs.

Our friend's son turned 2 years old and they held a sports themed birthday party for him. He loves baseball, basketball, golf and cars. He's such an active little boy! Their friends and family were present. There was so much love in the air. For the food, they had Pork BBQ Ribs with all kinds of sides.

Pork spare ribs. Meat so tender and fall off the bone and the bbq sauce is not too sweet. So good!
