Bites of My Life

I'm baaaaack. We are all moved and working on getting settled in our new house. I had a friend tell me last week that she did not like the fact that I was taking a few days off from the blog. She said didn't know what to do without Take a bite in her life! Bailey, if you're reading, I'll do my best to make sure it doesn't happen again! But know that it totally made my day to hear you care so much about my posts!
Last week was the official start of summer! I have two weeks to do nothing as well as do a ton to get ready to move to DC. I'm savoring this time of having a full kitchen to myself, so expect a lot of foodgrams and recipes posts coming up!
-Running out of class because it's officially summer!!!
-I found this new caramel macchiato flavor of Dannon greek yogurt and was very intrigued. Tried it, didn't love it. 
-It wasn't much of a welcome home when I come in to find a room full of boxes.
-Two days later my little room was completely empty. I should be sad, but I'm not. For being such a traditionalist, I'm loving the new adventure of my parents moving to a new house.
-Had to make a trip back to Norman to celebrate two of my favorite, now, 21 year olds!
-We have an abundance of mint at our new house, so I made my favorite salad for lunch on Saturday with mint instead of basil. 
-A delicious and easy side dish composed of eggplant, pine nuts, basil, balsamic and feta! Be looking for this recipe coming up. 
-Any holiday should be celebrated with cake, so I made a four-layer coconut cake with swiss meringue buttercream frosting for my momma! P.s. I love the way food photographs on our new marble countertops. 
-Some of the components for our brussels sprout salad we had with dinner on Sunday night.
