Eats from forever!

WOW! I haven’t written a blog post in for-eva!  It’s cause a girl is busy…..I totally understand how people can have this as their full-time job.  This has been my first full week off school and my wordpress is actually cooperating with me…..I couldn’t download pics.  So here are some eats from that last few weeks, heck maybe even months, that I happened to take a pic of and I want to share with you.  Don’t be lazy, get to cookin’ 🙂

Breakfast.  Ezekiel bread w/ organic peanut butter and a banana drizzled with raw honey.  Don’t forget the morning brew!

I have eaten more vegetables in the last month than I have all year.  Seriously, it has been fun trying new recipes.  Now that I have one more week on my hand before my crazy busy July starts, I am sure I will be experimenting even more in the kitchen.

Question: Does anyone have any recipes to share?

Beets are Tasty!

We got some beets from the Upright’s last week and don’t really have any good recipes….. So I peeled them and threw them in the oven and off we went for a walk in the chilly frigid Texas weather with sweats on (52 degrees).  That is the only thing I know what to do with them! They were done before our dinner was ready so we sprinkled some salt on them and popped them in our mouths for a little appy.  Matt was like “Oh MY God,” look at your tongue.  Then I was like, let me see yours…..Kind of like a I’ll show you mine if you show me yours game 🙂

IMG_0242Check this out! We thought we would show you ours 🙂

A little while later it was time for din din…This is what was on the agenda.  Pork chops, asparagus, and tasty butternut squash wedges

Well It’s 7:50 and it’s almost bed time.  No seriously, we go to bed this early.  We have a lot of painting to do this weekend and a fun happy hour planned with Matt’s coworkers tomorrow.  We are going to the Red Lion in Houston.  It is like a English pub or something…..It has been on dinners, drive-ins, and dives….We shall see for ourselves if it is legit or not. 

Question: HELP!  How do you prepare beets?!
