Meal Plan Monday

Shrimp Lemongrass Coconut Soup

This was the first recipe I made out of my new Paleo cookbook, and it was a WINNER!  Like specifically called it a keeper 🙂 It was kind of like a shrimp Tom Kha Gai – creamy, spicy, and the lime juice at the…

An Aggie-Fun-Filled Weekend!

We had a GREAT day in Aggieland this weekend…. Despite a rather heartbreaking loss 🙁 It was still great to see old friends and soak in the excitement that is Gameday.  First up, there was a lot of prep to do! I made Arnold…

Luke’s Lemonade

In honor of my dear husband and the whiskey he will likely consume this weekend post-Aggie win, I bring you: Luke’s Lemonade! This cocktail is summery, easy to make, not too sweet, not too tart goodness! And there’s whiskey, which is nearly a requirement…

A little bit of vacation every day…

My favorite parts of going on vacation are easily these three: the leisurely coffee in the morning, the long lunch, and the al fresco dinner.  Interestingly all revolve around being outdoors and eating… what can I say??  Between new(ish) jobs, school, friends, family, and…
