The extended weekend is over. A dreamy weekend has come to an end and the reality check has begun! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed the 3 or 4 days off. San Francisco was a fun city. We stayed in downtown. The sun, wind, and the city carried us away from busy lives. We dined out everyday and I didn't want to come back to the rain. It was a great time for our first anniversary trip although the city has 4% health charge at a restaurant!
Speaking of our anniversary, the date actually fell on a week day. On the day of we decided to stay in, cook dinner, and bake a cake together. Keith doesn't know much about cooking. It was a great opportunity for him to help me (although I wanted to do everything myself as he was so slow!). The man gotta learn how to cook... I picked the dish that was easy and fast. It's light, healthy, and perfect for a busy week day because it can be put together in less than 30 mins. With culinary dried lavender we got from a lavender field in San Juan Island, WA, it added a special scent and flavor to the rub and sauce. The name "lavender" is derived from the Latin word "lavare", and it means to wash. Lavender has become a popular ingredient in cooking for both sweet and savory dishes.

Almost everything I used in this recipe was organic that was available at my convenience (you must be proud of me, Lazaro!). I won't say much as I have some exciting news to share. The recipe is at the end of the post.
Now, let's talk business. I've been contacted by Mambosprouts, an online community providing coupons, recipes, and healthy green living information to either review a product or give away the items.
