I've loved cooking so much lately. I always like it, but I've been coming up with some super delicious things. Louis and I were chatting about this yesterday, and I think that living here and eating at amazing restaurants has made me enjoy cooking even more. I like getting ideas and then trying to recreate something similar at home. It must partly be that I'm getting older, since I've been relaxing at the end of the day by stirring, chopping, and making meals that are both healthy and tasty.
Here are some of my favorite things to make/eat:
breakfast: oatmeal with peanut butter, 1/2 banana, berries or apples, almond milk, cinnamon.
weekend breakfast: blueberry, banana, pancakes (I made these for the first time on Sunday and they were HEAVEN!)
lunch: arugala, feta, walnuts, dried cranberries with lemon juice. (I just discovered that I enjoy fruit on my salad.)
quick dinner: baked chicken, arugula, chickpeas, feta, cucumber, red onion, teensy bit of balsamic, stuffed in a hummus pita and topped with salsa.
dessert/snack/breakfast - AND my most favorite: toasted coconut, almond milk, banana and ice smoothie!!!ahhhh seriously, so good.
Clearly, I love food and I'm quite interested delicious, easy, healthy meals.
And while I'm on the subject, here are some photos of us during a tasting for our wedding. We are hoping for an Italian feast.
Two more things:
1. Our engagement pictures are finished!!! I'll share some soon.
2. I found a dress...and I bought it!! Nothing to share on that, until after the wedding!! It's so weird making such a large purchase, for something so important and special to me, and not being able to show it to Louis! AHH!
