Life lately…

Good morning, ya’ll!  I hope you are having a fabulous weekend full of fun, relaxation, and productivity… those are my favorite kinds of weekends!!  Today I thought I would do a photo dump of my life this past week.  Onto the randomness… 

An easy to-go breakfast of pineapple and grapefruit!  This was the second of two cups… I dropped the first one on the way to my car :/

Guys, do any of you watch The Affair on Showtime?  It is SO good.. getting kinda crazy, but I like it!  

A warm walk on Thursday afternoon (65 degrees) in December..I’ll take it! Someone needed a little stretch after that long walk! 😉 

I am obsessed with roasting squash this time of year!  There is just something about a warm meal with squash.  And I don’t discriminate against different types… I love them all!  My favorites are: acorn squash (pictured left), Spaghetti squash (pictured right), and butternut squash.  I just cut them open, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, add salt and pepper and roast at 400-450F for 45minutes-1hour (times and temperatures differ depending on the oven… squash is ready when tender to the touch with a fork).  

Two meals made with the previous two different types of squash.

Roasted acorn squash stuffed with roasted broccoli, brussel sprouts, and garlic.  SO good!



Spaghetti squash with homemade pesto, sauteed mushrooms, onion, and garlic and with a side of kale salad with a warm vinaigrette dressing (olive oil, red wine vinegar, sauteed onions and garlic, craisins, honey, lemon and chopped almonds).  


Two of my favorite vegetables that I can’t get enough of!

Favorite way to cook brussel sprouts: 1. chop off end of brussel sprouts, peel off outer layers, cut in half or fourths if really large. 2. place in a bowl. 3. drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. 4. toss and roast in oven at 400F for 25-30 minutes.  Delicious every time!


My sweet, tired pups.  


More than not, I am his favorite pillow.  I don’t mind 😉


Alright, well that is all I have for you guys today!! I hope you have a relaxing Sunday and some good weather so you can get outside!
