I am always looking to create meals that are easy to prep ahead of time and throw together last minute. Since I teach late two nights a week, my dear husband is usually responsible for putting dinner together. I try to make things as easy as possible.
I am always looking for a new vegetarian lunch idea. This week, I went back to work after being off for winter break for a month. I was so excited to get back in to the swing of things - meal prep included. My husband and I have been going out to eat more frequently since I was on break. The holidays were so busy that I didn't have time to meal plan and grocery shop. This week, it's a different story.
I know it's been a few weeks since I have posted and that's because life has been crazy! I feel like I have never been this busy in my whole life, but I am loving every second of it. I opened a private practice recently and it has kept me incredibly busy (head on over to the counseling services tab if you are interested!).
If you follow me on instagram, you will remember that I told you about a farmers market a few months ago. Remember, the one right down the road from me? Well, if you didn't see that photo, you can see it here. Anyway, I have still been visiting it on a weekly basis. They always have such great stuff and it's open 6 days a week so it is very convenient.
Public Service Announcement: It's Autumn in Ohio. That means that the local farmer's market is beginning to sell squash and the grocery store has their fall produce display front and center! I am embarrassed to admit it, but I only learned about acorn squash in the last few years. Before that, they were a foreign produce item. Well, after I learned how to make it, I realized just how delicious it is.
A few weeks ago I decided to revisit an old recipe that I had made for my husband years ago. Chicken can get pretty boring, so I came up with the recipe to spice things up. Summer is the perfect time to make this recipe because basil is in season and it's so light and refreshing. Every year I grow basil from seed in my windowsill and it is honestly one of my favorite herbs because it's so versatile.
