Nick and I are just too cute :) Both on the couch, sitting with our laptops. Of course, he’s working on his dissertation and I’m blogging, but whatever!
I was hungry this afternoon!
I ate my snack of one of our golden jubliee tomatoes + homemade guac.
That held for me about 30 minutes, so then I broke into this.
yum. A slice of apple pie is always a good afternoon snack.
I had a lot of phone calls today at work, which is a little strange for me. It made for a weird day. Other than that, work was work for a Wednesday.
The family that bought the truck came by to pick it up today after work and one of their little girls totally made my day. I know kids often say things without thinking and I’ve heard some funny stuff before, but when they say something sweet, it just melts ya’! When the family was leaving, one of their little girls (she might have been 4 or 5?) leaned over in the car and told her mom “she’s pretty”, so when the mom turned back around to wave goodbye to us, she said back to her daughter “yeah, she is pretty”.
*blush* Seriously? I needed that today. I’ve been bloaty mccramperson the past couple of days which doesn’t make me feel too hot, so it just made my day. cute little girl.
I was excited for dinner tonight – almost everything was local!
I got the best zucchini at the farmer’s market this weekend. These little ones are so cute! I couldn’t wait to use them.
I sliced up all of these zucchini, 3 tomatoes from our garden, a pepper from our garden , and a small red onion.
I love that everything but the onion was either from our garden or our farmer’s market! Erin would be proud :)
I layered the following in a 9×13 pan:
- chicken breast topped with salt, pepper, garlic powder, dijon + whole grain mustard
- red onion
- more salt, pepper, garlic powder and some thyme
Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
While that was in the oven, I cooked some Israeli couscous on the stovetop with some onion, garlic, and parsley. We love Israeli couscous. So doughy and delicious. And whole grain mustard is good on just about anything.
These veggies were so good! Wanna know the best thing? The zucchini actually tasted like zucchini. Not like the zucchini I used to get at the grocery store that really don’t taste like anything. Local produce is the best.
I’ve got a book to start tonight, but I’ve made a HUGE list of all your suggestions to take to the library over the next couple of weeks. I can’t wait! All of the suggestions sound great, so thanks!
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
