Bites of My Life

By the looks of my pictures last week, my days seemed to be full of bright colorful plates of food. Meals aside, my days weren't so colorful. I was on a streak of weird mishaps happening each day. Little things like breaking a brand new compact of bronzer to getting tea all over my white comforter. But the cherry on top was a car wreck. Thursday evening ended with a boom, bump, crash. No one was hurt except for my car. Counting my blessings!

After the hump of weird occurrences I settled into the weekend with a delicious dinner with friends and drinks with more friends. Some of my oldest friends to be exact. Then a cozy Saturday night in with my Lindz for take out on the couch and a chick flick on the TV. Crossing my fingers for better karma this week. 

-I know this is so basic, but I've been making this salad dressing of equal parts dijon mustard, balsamic, & olive oil then a little s&p all whisked together. Been eating it on everything, but really loving it on kale/spinach with cinnamon roasted sweet potatoes, chicken and avocado.
-Snack plate lunch beats sad dreary salads any day.
-Dinner a la whole foods. Their hot bar indian food sucks me in every time. 
-Sneaking figs into every meal I can. Didn't have strawberries so I subbed in blueberries to make this fig smoothie recipe!  
-Proof to show my week didn't only revolve around food. A little blue and blue and lots of hugs and squeals at KKG alumni night. 
-Pretty plated Saturday breakfast. 
-Blueberry spinach smoothie bowl with all zeee toppings. Feeling the blueberry vibes clearly...
-Sunday morning baking is becoming my favorite "me time" activity. Blueberry Banana Streusel Muffins were yesterday's culprit. Loved them so much I already posted the recipe
-Sausage peppers and onions cooked in a tomato sauce is a take on a dish my mom used to make. Perfect Sunday night comfort food!
