What I should have made

Hello! I’m writing on a Sunday evening. Not sure if this will get posted tonight but just felt like I should start it! I was super excited today when after church one of my readers (hi Nora!) told me she and her boyfriend went to The Hungry Peddler because I mentioned it on my blog! Too cool! I love it when people tell me that they read my blog. If you’re not too shy post a comment to say hi!

After church I came home and realized this is what I should have made yesterday instead of my EPIC FAIL

This is Pumpkin Quinoa from Angel at Oh She Glows. topped with shredded coconut and with a side of asparagus. I just happened to have a bunch of leftover quinoa in the fridge and an open can of pumpkin. This is so easy, fast and surprisingly delicious. The asparagus was a treat too!

I spent the rest of the day cleaning the house and paying the bills (how fun!). Now I’m done with those nasty chores and I can chill out on my first true day in a looooooong time. There is so many things I WANT to do on my day off but so many things I HAVE to do, like write a paper!

The crock-pot ziti turned out ok. A little burned on the edges and the pasta was a little over cooked (sorry I didn’t get a final picture). My students didn’t see to mind. I also made this lovely salad

Now I’m just watching the Oscars waiting for him to get off the phone with his buddy from Alaska. I might have a little time for another kitchen experiment tomorrow! I’ll be sure to take a pic! Night!
