IMG_0721.jpg

This was such a great weekend! We had an epic Halloween-themed date night, hung out with all the people, and hit the trails not once but twice! We also managed to do some cleaning, talk finances, and meal prep for the week. Best team ever.

All the Photos in the Known Universe!

Happy Monday! And it’s a really happy Monday because I work today and tomorrow and then I fly to Seattle for the Three Amigas’ Retreat with my besties! I’m so excited!

I haven’t been feeling inspired to blog lately, which means there have been a lot of unshared photos (including last week’s outfits)… until now. Enjoy!

Everything in One!

Blogging during the workweek is way too hard at the moment, with a tiny pup, a full workday, and nightly rehearsals. Instead, I’ve just been updating one post throughout the week…

The result is that today’s post is long and packed with exciting things!

I am Forrest Gump

Good morning, friends!

I had to stop by and tell you about my run yesterday after work… and share some food pics, of course. We also got The Art of Raising a Puppy in the mail last night and have already read the first three chapters. I want that fluffy little German shepherd puppy on the cover!

Those Quesadillas, Tho’

Butternut squash, black bean, and red onion quesadilla with greek yogurt sour cream

YOU GUYS.

I am here to present you with the most delicious, healthy, vegetarian meal I’ve had in a while. The kind where you feel like you’re scarfing down naughty late-night junk food, but in fact somehow you’ve fooled yourself and you’re getting loads of healthy things instead. (Okay, minus the cheese, but cheese is healthy for the soul, and we really didn’t use much at all.)

Trying Out a New Kale Salad

The final product, Red Quinoa and baby kale salad with sweet potato fries and blackberry dressing, and added feta cheese

Monday Night Cook-All

This past Monday night, the man and I tested out a new recipe from a new cookbook, Simple Green Suppers, A Fresh Strategy for One-Dish Vegetarian Meals. We also put together some easy lunches for the next day, and I thought I’d document it all because food is fun—end of story.

Get Your Chop Sticks Ready

After my trip to LA, I’ve had an ongoing seafood craving. This past weekend, as part of our weekly meal prep, the man took my very specific cravings of the day (seafood, of course, but also sticky rice and veggies) and crafted this easy, luxurious, and remarkably simple Asian-inspired meal:

Mixed Mushroom & Spinach Lasagna

Thug Kitchen Knows Their $#*!

Last night the man and I put together Thug Kitchen‘s recipe for Mixed Mushroom and Spinach Lasagna. Okay, so Nick made the marinara from scratch (so good), as well as the pesto it called for, but I helped assemble as well as inhale the lasagna, so it all evens out.

The only thing we tweaked majorly was using real ricotta cheese instead of making Thug Kitchen’s tofu ricotta. I’d say that was a good call, my friends.
