Top 5 Tuesday

Hello friends!
I'm linking up with Rachel again for Top 5 Tuesday!

Today's topic is all about food.
I love food.
This is why I have to work out everyday, because I'm not willing to give up chocolate or burgers.
So, without further adieu...

1. Appetizer:
Baked Brie with Raspberry Preserves

I know it's rather random, but my mom makes this and it is to die for!
I think I ate more cheese over Christmas break than I have in my entire life. {That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but I ate a lot!}
Usually when I like off-the-wall foods, it's because my mom likes them and I end up trying it and loving it as well.

2. Side Dish:
Sweet Potatoes

I chose a picture with marshmallows because, let's face it, they're better with marshmallows or brown sugar and butter.
But honestly, I've had days where I'm too lazy to cook so I'll just microwave a sweet potato and eat it with a bit of coconut oil.
Nothing fancy, but delicious and healthy!

3. Main Dish:
Only one?  Hmm...beer battered halibut tacos!

I love anything having to do with halibut, but lately I've just been in love with fish tacos.

4. Dessert:
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I'm usually a chocolate person, but this pie really takes me back to my childhood.
My Poppy {Grandpa} grew his own strawberry patch and rhubarb and my mom would make this pie every so often.
I just love the sweet/tart combo.

Chocolate Milk {I know, what am I...12?}

But everyone else who linked up talked about an alcoholic drink so in that case, Malibu Breeze.

This has Malibu coconut rum, grenadine, and orange juice.
I had it in Vegas and loved it!
I don't really drink too often; and while I do keep wine in the house, I usually save the fruity drinks for special occasions like girls night!

Y'all should link up too!
It's a great way to see other peoples favorites and get ideas.
Until next time...
