Bites of My Life

2014 is fabulous already. The first three days of the new year were spent in New Orleans and they could not have been more perfect. Think lots of food, lots of fun, and lots of girls in one hotel room. An OU win and sooner magic had a lot to do with it too.
Only one week until I go back to school. It will be devoted to my last couple days of interning, savoring the last few minutes with friends and family, cooking the last things on my list, and getting organized for the move back. But for now, here's a look at last week.
-I love making quinoa fried rice when I want something healthy but comforting! {Sauté veggies such as frozen peas, corn, carrots, broccoli and garlic in a pan. When they are almost done, scramble in an egg. Add already cooked quinoa, soy sauce and sesame oil till combined then you are done!}
-We got into Nola on New Year's Eve, but had to squeeze in time for oysters at Felix's before the festivities could begin. I'm still dreaming about our char-broiled oysters.
-Colorful balconies in the Frenchman District.
-The best french onion soup from Cafe Maspero. You can't beat the pound of swiss cheese broiled on top!
-Intentions of going to Cafe Du Monde quickly got squashed when the line was wrapped around the block.
-Instead we stumbled into the restaurant across the street for one of my favorite meals of the trip, a jambalaya omelet. 
-Got home early Friday, slept all day, then woke up at 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning to drive to Tulsa for the Tulsa wedding show where I passed out Brides of Oklahoma magazines all day.
-Ended Saturday by getting to enjoy this delish meal and finally meeting my long lost bestie/best friend's boyfriend.
