Here I am, groggy and a little cranky. I’m listening to the sweet sweet sounds of the tamale lady roaming the street screaming, “tamalleeeeee” “mole rojo tamalleeeeee”. If I had proper clothes on, cash, and willpower to get up, I’d go down and buy some. But I don’t, so I wont. I failed to… Continue reading Rest, reset, go.
I was so tempted to not write a blog tonight. I’m unusually tired right now. It’s either due to the whole daylight savings business catching up to me, or because of my workout today. Whatever it is, I’m just tired. I’ve been trying to get myself to workout out more consistently these past couple of… Continue reading Motivation
In the car on my way home from work I found myself thinking “Wow, today is such a beautiful day.” The sky is brilliant blue, the air is cool and clear, spring flowers are abloom. I live for days like these. When I’m driving, 9 times out of 10 I’m listening to NPR. As I… Continue reading Beauty
It’s officially spring! Since we have moved to L.A I have drastically trimmed down my wardrobe. I don’t need as many winter clothes as I did in Colorado. I’m also trying to be much more judicious when it comes to buying clothes.I guess you could say is that I’ve been inspired by minimalism lately. I’ve… Continue reading Spring Cleaning
I was inspired to make this several months back when I was reminiscing over an insanely delicious stuffed shell dish I had. I remember the recipe had cheese on cheese on cheese, peas, parsley and of course, pasta. Oh and I can’t forget the fontina fonduta on top. Since then I’ve been wanting to make… Continue reading Vegan “Ricotta” and Peas
My ways of re-charging are: Stay at home away from people. OR go out and see nature. Both of these outlets are very important to me. Today, I pretty much got to spend the whole day outside and it was wonderful. Matthew and I and some of our lovely new friends planned a group hike,… Continue reading Nature is Nurture.
Woops! I totally forgot to blog yesterday. I FAILED at my 30 day blogging challenge. I’m not really being hard on myself though. No one is perfect, and I am going pick up from where I left off. I mean, c’mon, blogging 15 days in a row is pretty difficult. I guess I forgot because… Continue reading Failure and Triumph
Remember when I mentioned that we are now Costco members? My latest purchase was a HUGE container of coconut oil. It’s organic and unrefined and I couldn’t pass up the price. Now I have to figure out how to use all of it! I don’t plan on consuming it all, and if I start to,… Continue reading Chocolate Chunk Cookies
For tonight’s dinner, I made beer braised chicken. It was so easy, it doesn’t even require a recipe. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of my dinner due to poor lighting. I really need to find a way to light my kitchen better. I might need to switch out the bulbs, or perhaps I could take… Continue reading Beer Braised Chicken
Moving to L.A has been a lot to adjust to. I thought that I could compare it to living in NYC, but I was sadly mistaking. The biggest difference is the necessity of having a car in this sprawled out city. I remember how in the first week of living here I couldn’t believe that… Continue reading Adjusting
