Hiya, friends! I’m writing this post from a comfy seat at the airport.
I’m headed to Tampa for a trip with the Florida Department of Citrus to learn about orange juice production. I could definitely use some sunshine in my life right about now. Then on Friday I’m flying to Nashville a reunion with some of my foodie pal’s from my Reality Israel trip this past April. This is the carry on suitcase I use for every trip and it’s the BEST. So roomy!
I tried a new to me sprouted bread that I really liked. I always keep a few loaves of different bread in the freezer for regular toast and of course my beloved french toast. Breakfast was two pieces of avocado toast, one savory with everything bagel spice and micro greens and one with blackberries, salt, and coconut. The salt is key to bring out the sweetness.
I also had coffee blended with almond butter, a trick I learned from Megan. So creamy!
For lunch I had leftover cream of mushroom and wild rice soup inspired by the recipe in the Fresh and Healthy Instant Pot Cookbook. I made it in my Instant Pot as written but used vegetable broth, added cashew cream, and a bunch of nutritional yeast. Loved the velvety smoothness! I enjoyed it with a salad using spinach from our CSA box, my favorite balsamic vinaigrette, chopped apple, and walnuts.
I’ve been so into salt and pepper popcorn lately. Best snack ever.
Dinner was tuna noodle casserole and salad. I used this recipe as a inspiration but used a whole bag of pasta, added celery, peas, kale (like my old recipe), doubled the mushrooms, and added nutritional yeast, soy sauce, and parsley for flavor. Jeff and I both love this meal and it feeds us for a couple days which is always a plus.
Dessert was the yummiest chocolate chip cookies leftover from the batch I made Sunday. I followed the recipe exactly except no vanilla bean. Perfect with cold almond milk.
Let’s talk style!
I know a lot of you are loving these trousers! I have them in black and rust. This is a similar bodysuit in you want a long sleeve one but I also own this one in black and rust for summertime. I love these open toe black mules (these and these are cheaper options).
Currently loving this faux leather moto jacket, block heel sandals, leopard slip ons (just bought them and they’re insanely cute and comfy), leather satchel bag, maxi dress, mini skirt (love burnt orange and black), mockingbird dress, crossbody bag, and slip dress. Have a fabulous week!
