And the holidays are finally here! Like, really here. Have you done your shopping? Decorated the house? I find myself getting so stressed out and tired this time of year. Especially this year. Oliver, my new shiba inu puppy, has been keeping me super super busy. Naturally, he’s sleeping now.
After going home for Thanksgiving I’m on a bit of a vegetarian cook. I guess it makes sense since many of my meals at home were made up of mostly veggies thanks to my dad. I’m not complaining. The past few weeks I’d been eating pretty poorly and my body needed a cleanse of sorts. Strange, usually holiday foods are what cause your body to need a cleanse…
After traveling to Denver a few weeks ago to visit Rob’s family, I got home and was seriously craving Italian food. It’s one of my favorite foods, but I couldn’t tell you the last time I’d cooked it or gone out to eat it! Pasta, tortellini actually, was my favorite food as a kid, so I found this strange that I’d gone so long without a noodle fix!
I have a slight obsession with brussel sprouts. I eat them with prosciutto, ginger and soy and now raw.
Lasagna has always been one of my favorites, but I really can’t stand when it’s just covered in cheese. I like to be able to taste each layer. The meat, the noodles, the sauce, and then yes, the cheese.
I’ll be honest, I’m really not much of a dessert person. Not that I don’t like them, I just don’t crave them like some people do.Occasionally I do get a hankering for something sweet and when I do, I crave a dessert with fruit in it.
I got a big shipment of Alaskan fish from Stormont Williams Fish Supply Co. just a few weeks ago and I’ve been testing out new fish recipes since then! I’ll be honest, cooking fish is a bit scary for me. We didn’t grow up eating it and for a long time I never knew what to put on it besides salt and pepper. How boring. And a waste when you have fish this amazing and fresh tasting!
