Food

Fun in the kitchen

 

clean and green

Had a little fun this afternoon experimenting. Balsamic, coconut oil, garlic, green beans, almonds, and tomatoes.

For a snack or side dish- I recommend either taking the tomatoes away or keeping the tomatoes and adding a little low fat cheese.

For a main meal- I suggest adding some diced chicken and/or some whole grain pasta.

What would you add?

Where to? Hawaii, Italy, Napa Valley, or Spain?

My husband and I took a mini road trip this past weekend. On our trip we made a list of both individual goals and ‘together/family’ goals. One of our long-term goals (within 5 years) is to take a big trip.

So I need your help! Our Top contenders are:

hawaii

Hawaii – We have always talked about Hawaii b/c of the many different things you can do there. We enjoy relaxing by the pool and beach; however, we also like to take in the sights, go on some adventures etc…

Italy – The architecture and the food top the reasons we want to visit Italy.

Napa Valley – We love wine. This is one that could be a second trip within 5 years if we do a big trip. We are huge wine enthusiasts so that is obviously the reason we want to go to Napa Valley. However, we look forward to taking in California, going on bike rides, visiting some great restaurants, and staying at a charming and romantic cottage or Inn.

Spain

Spain – To visit where my ancestors are from and take in the history, architecture, and culture Spain has to offer would be amazing.

So these are the places we have in mind. What do you think? Have you been to any? Recommendations? 🙂 Thank you friends!
