making veggie burgers…totally unlike me as I really enjoy the real deal but I had some leftover lentils in the freezer and just took it from there. I accidentally made it into hummus. So I added more beans. Then I added brown rice. Then it was just right, though crumbly. And good! (Lentils + 1 egg + celery + onion + white beans + brown rice + spices)

eating doro wat. Go make this Ethiopian Chicken Stew, it is amazing!

reading Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Beautiful Ruins (and others that weren’t as good)

loving bananas. I go through weird phases because sometimes I feel sick after eating them but lately I can’t get enough of them with some peanut or almond butter.

yeah monning in Jamaica. SO fun!

eating WAY too much dairy. It’s a slippery slope. I try to limit it to a few servings a day but it’s been out of control lately.

eating an amazing burger at Plan Check. Dare I say it is my new favorite? (That is ketchup leather!)

desperately wanting the new “magic denim” from Madewell. I need.

craving fall food. I’m so over the summer.


needing to make Chipotle at home…

traveling to Wisconsin and Minnesota for The Great Baby Tour II and to visit my family (twice in two weeks!). I also got to see our godson again (I’m majorly obsessed) and have dinner with the girls at Tilia.

enjoying my Dad’s garden each time I go home. I went and picked vegetables for about an hour last time I visited. Three words: hot, bugs, jealous.

It’s me. As you can see, I’ve taken another long break. Truth be told, a few weeks ago, I was ready to give up on blogging, but after much back and forth, I don’t think I’m ready to quit quite yet. I’ve put so much into this little website, spent so much money and taken
