Today I'm linking up with Shay, Sheaffer and Mel for What's Up Wednesday. I'm also linking up to The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday. It's one of my favorite days of the month. I love seeing what all is going on in peoples' worlds and what they are wearing too. :) Here's a peek into mine...
We are eating lots of meatless meals. We are in the thick of Lent and that means no meat on Fridays for 40 days! My favorite meal so far was Ina Garten's Roasted Tomato Soup. It was so good. A little bit of work but worth it.
3 pounds ripe plum tomatoes, cut in half lengthwise
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons good olive oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
2 cups chopped yellow onions (2 onions)
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (28-ounce) canned plum tomatoes, with their juice
4 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1 teaspoon fresh thyme…
Happy Wednesday! I'm on spring break and the weather has cooperated very nicely thank.you.very.much! ;)
We started warming up a few days ago and It's been really nice not to have bundle up.
On Sunday, I wore a t shirt dress and leggings from Forever 21. Although it was 65, I'm a wimp so I topped it with my Old Navy denim jacket that I got for $3.00 at a local thrift store and this cute little flamingo pin was $1.00 at Walmart. :)
I've even started to bust out the white jeans!!!
Monday was a glorious sunny 70 something day. I wore this new top I got off the Target clearance rack. I paid just over $10.00. I love the dusty rose color.
And, yesterday it was over 80 and sunny. It was time to break out the sandals and a sleeveless top. I bought this Anthropologie top over the winter and have been dying for it to get warm enough so I could finally wear it. It was on clearance for $20.00! Red is my favorite color and I love that the pattern has turquoise in it. I was abl…
I do not like breakfast food. :O I don't know what it is really. I'm just not a fan. I would much rather eat real food like pasta, pizza, Chinese food...pretty much anything that was leftover from dinner the night before. LOL!
A bowl of cereal just doesn't do it for me. I loathe soggy cereal. I don't like milk. And, I'm hungry an hour after I eat a bowl of Cheerios.
Can't have eggs every day for breakfast now can we? There's this little thing called cholesterol that we have to be aware of. :/
Pancakes? Eh Waffles? Ain't nobody got time for that on a random Tuesday morning. ;) Although, over the weekend, my sweet daughter made pumpkin Belgian waffles for us. YUM!
Now, that's not to say that I don't eat at all. I mean a girl's gotta eat to function right? And, I teach preschool, so I need lots of energy to keep up with those 3 and 4 year olds.
So, what do I eat then? In the warmer months, I drink lots of smoothies. I us…
