salad

Welcome back all! I’m so glad you decided to drop by.

Remember my something out of nothing blog? Well, it’s about that time again. With summer being a busy travel and social time, we have been trying not to overstock and simply use what we have in the fridge so as to minimize waste. SO, wanting a salad but having no lettuce, I took a risk and this is what I came up with. I was pleasantly surprised how refreshing this was. So if you are in the mood for something other than the same old salad, I suggest you give this a try. NOTE: I made this just for myself as a meal. So if you are making this for a side, you might want to consider doubling this recipe.  Read the rest of this entry »

Hello all! I know it’s been over a year since I posted. I wrapped up my first year of teaching and that kept me pretty busy. But wanted to give a quick update to get back on track and confirm that I am alive.

My husband LOVED this and even asked if there was more!

Welcome back readers! I am glad to have you stop by.

This post will be quick and to the point. My husband and I eat a LOT of frozen vegetables. When I say a lot, I mean a LOT. And while typically I am perfectly content to pour the contents of the bag into a microwave dish, add water, and be done with it, I was home alone one day and decided to try something different.

It was worth it. Read the rest of this entry »

When I was about 13 years old, I complained to my horse riding instructor that I was tired. She explained to me that I was not tired, just uninspired. She asked me if someone were to give me two tickets to Paris, would I have enough energy to pack my bags and get on the plane? At the time I thought she was nuts. If you’re tired, you’re tired. And trust me, I have been down to the bones, falling asleep where I stand tired. But this day….this day, she may have been proven right.
