2/22: Friday Faves

-This week’s surprise snow. Snow-covered cacti: not something you see very often. -Caroline’s naptime acrobatics taken to an entirely different level. (I took that picture before she fell then proceeded to act like nothing happened.) -Mangoes! They’re not in our usual fruit rotation, but it’s always fun to switch it up and Liv loves them.…

Green everything + Killer Cardio Circuit

I’ve mentioned before that I tend to suffer from workout accomplishment amnesia. This means that I’ll run 10 miles and then a week later, on my long run day, I doubt my ability to do more than 3. It shocks me that I was able to do such a long distance the week before. Anyone…

Cheezy Red Pepper Pasta

In my dream world, there would be no hate, no wars, and the environment could repair the damage that has been done over time. Every day would include beautiful and random adventures oh, and noodles and cookies would be calorie-free. Actually, I have no prob with the calories in cookies. Every time I have a…

Chili Mango Slushy

I have a delicious summery treat for you today, inspired by my heritage: chili mango slushy. My love of spicy food could be explained by many different factors, but I really think my addiction is hereditary. My nana eats jalapeños like they’re baby bell peppers. I live for green corn tamales -our tamale guy makes…

Spicy almond butter zucchini chips

How nice is that?

[Said in my best Barefoot Contessa voice] Socks that actually match:                           (Just picked up a few packs at Target. At work it’s pretty much assumed that my socks never match, and then it got to the point where I was lucky to…

The best kale chips

Mystery #1: Our lime/orange/grapefruit tree. When we first moved in, I was convinced that they were limes. Then they turned orange and are now splitting open. A fruit mystery, fo sho. Mystery #2: Our dehydrator is broken. You see, things go in… but they never come out. They just disappear. The most recent disappearing act:…

Nori Nachos

I could pretend that we did SO much today. But really: we didn’t. It’s funny because we weren’t lazy at all, but still didn’t manage to get a ton of stuff done. NBD, since I got to enjoy the day with the Pilot, instead of frantically running around like I usually do on Mondays 🙂…
