That’s what happened this weekend when I did a quick google search for butternut squash ideas.
I don’t really search recipes, I search photos. I’ll put the ingredients I want to work with in google and do an image search. Then I just keep scrolling and scrolling until something screams out at me. Read the rest of this post »»
There’s something you need to know about me: For YEARS I avoided whole chickens. Honestly, I avoided pretty much any meat with bones. If it wasn’t boneless chicken breasts or boneless pork chops or ground meat, I wasn’t buying or cooking it.
I’m not sure why. I guess I was scared of not cooking it correctly. I thought it was time consuming. I thought it was, well, too much work.
Italy was seriously the trip of a lifetime. I can’t even begin to tell you. Life changing for sure. If you are interested in seeing some photos check out TheUnworldlyTravelers.com. I posted from each major city we visited, Rome, Venice, Florence.
I’ll be preaching it to my dying day: Food that’s fun, takes just a little time to prep, and look pretty is always more satisfying. Always!I made this as a quick snack today and posted it on Instagram. (I try to keep an accurate food journal there although not everything makes it when my battery dies or I forget my phone.) Anyway, as soon as I posted it all these questions rolled in so I thought I’d share the post sooner rather than later. Read the rest of this post »»
I’m in that mode where I buy a bunch of fresh produce in the beginning of the week with no real plan on how I’m going to use it. I’ve learned over the course of the last 7 years –pretty much since I overhauled my diet– that if I buy it and keep it in plain site, I’ll figure out a way to eat it because I HATE throwing good food away.
Of course I modified the idea using what I had on hand. The result couldn’t have been more satisfying! It was fresh, light, tasty, and REALLY filling. I guess eating a whole large cucumber will do that to you!
So the night I was sick we ordered chinese food for dinner and with Chinese food comes leftover rice. You know the rice that comes on the side of every menu item that no one ever seems to eat because you ordered fried rice or noodles on the side anway? Yea, that rice. The stuff that usually gets tossed.
Well I like to look at it as someone just delivered me cooked rice and says, “Here, make something.”
Have I been inactive for 8 days? That may be a record! The holiday season hit this year and hit hard. It all started with The Husband’s birthday on the 21st. We had his company holiday party out of town, then Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at home with the kids, then off to Grandma and Grandpa #1′s for the day, then Grandpa and Grandma #2′s the next day, then we had the road trip from hell on the way home (serious traffic, diaper blow outs, grumpy kids,) then today I got sick!
