Asparagus and Shrimp Stir Fry w/ Farro

Morning shows are not generally my thing…unless we are talking Sportscenter – then I am totally game.  As a female, I feel the need to explain this habit.  You see, I grew up with brothers…therefore, mornings were comprised of Frosted Flakes and SportsCenter and after 18+ years of this ‘torture’, don’t ya know I foundContinue reading “Asparagus and Shrimp Stir Fry w/ Farro”

Baked Mini Shells w/ Pork Sugo

Is it really Friday already?  The Friday before Memorial Day weekend…seriously?!?  The unofficial start to summer.  Really? While I try to wrap my mind around the speed at which this year is unfolding, let’s do a week round-up.  Because I am sure you are all intrigued at what has been happening around here these pastContinue reading “Baked Mini Shells w/ Pork Sugo”

Soba Noodles w/ Chicken + Ginger Peanut Sauce

Happy Monday y’all!  I hope your weekend was rejuvenating or successful or so jam-packed full of crazy going-ons that going back to work is a sort of relief.  That is a sign of an awesome weekend!   Mine was great.  Thanks for asking 🙂  I worked, and ran, and listened to baseball, and mowed, and trimmed, and baked, and ….wellContinue reading “Soba Noodles w/ Chicken + Ginger Peanut Sauce”

Spaghetti alla Carbonara

There is a pound of spaghetti sitting in the depths of my stomach…making me all happy and cozy and little sleepy.  The sleepy bit might be because I have been up since 5am.  Or it’s the carbs.  It’s a toss-up.  Either way, I am overly content…as my dad would say, ‘if I were any better, I wouldContinue reading “Spaghetti alla Carbonara”

Basil is Green

Crud BUCKETS! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day.  ‘ I just searched my closet…I haven’t a green piece of clothing in my closet, in my dresser, in my hamper, on my floor… Please don’t pinch me…I bruise like a tomato.  And why the pinching?  I would never pinch you…unless you were just sitting there, minding yourContinue reading “Basil is Green”

I hope you like mushrooms..

How was your Monday? Mine was pretty decent…work went fast and there was less traffic on the road ( thank you Mr. Lincoln, Washington, and the rest of y’all.).  I thoroughly enjoyed my almond butter/apple butter sandwich on Ezekiel bread at lunch.  I had a good talk with mom on the drive home.  It was aContinue reading “I hope you like mushrooms..”

Gnocchi with Pesto

February, cold, cloudy, dreary… makes me understand why bears hibernate.  They don’t like the month of February either. Kinda wish I could sleep through it too.  Plus, they get to eat a ton before they go to sleep….that I wish I could do too. But since we are not bears, we must get through February.  And tryContinue reading “Gnocchi with Pesto”

Creamy Pasta Fagioli Soup with Turkey Sausage

I am all confused on my days.  Yesterday felt like Monday.  Today feels like Tuesday.  And if today feels like Tuesday then it also feels like I am missing my first day of work.  And that makes me feel a bit anxious.  And by bit, I mean real anxious.  I keep looking down at my watch,Continue reading “Creamy Pasta Fagioli Soup with Turkey Sausage”

Creamy Pesto Pasta

Don’t you hate cleaning out your freezer?  I do.  I dread the day.  However, its better than cleaning out the fridge.  At least the freezer stops the growth of anything green and fuzzy…. I had to clean mine out this week.  There just wasn’t any more room.  No more room and I had no clue what was in there. Continue reading “Creamy Pesto Pasta”
