Springtime decided to get back together with us after a long break up and it’s a beautiful weekend in New York! The air is intoxicating, people are buzzing around like they’ve climbed out of a cave..we can FINALLY see and feel the sun reaching out to us and flirting away. Contrary to the list of things I needed to complete this weekend, it’s just the type of weekend that convinces me to blow off the “To-Do” list and impulsively jump into the day of shenanigans like a dive into a pool on a humid August day.
The thing about the Northeast is that I’ve come to appreciate the Spring (and dare I say it) Fall months, as Summer comes and goes in the blink of an eye. So with that said, Cheers to the arrival of Spring and may all your adult activities today lead you to believe that Monday will never come.
Peace, Love, & Sun
It’s mid week Ladies and Gents and I thought I would show some love for Wednesday and post a recipe I LOVE LOVE LOVE (and actually eating as I write this)..It’s not my own personal recipe and all credit goes to Allrecipes.com which is one of the best sites when I wanna get my Betty Crocker on.
Tuscan Bean Goppel
Prep:10 min Cook:5 min Ready In:15 min
2 (15.5 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained
1 (14.4 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon virgin (or extra virgin) olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped (sometimes I add more or less depending on my mood)
1 pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
In a medium saucepan combine the olive oil, beans, tomatoes, red pepper flakes, garlic . Stir until the mixture bubbles. Remove from heat and stir in the feta cheese and cilantro.
TADA! This recipe is so easy and it makes at least two hearty servings. I eat it solo but feel free to complement it with other sides or glass of Jesus juice..who doesn’t like wine?!?!?
Peace, Love & Cheese!
This blog, I have wanted to start for so long..how long you ask..at least a year or so..give or take..But for one reason or another it was pushed far back into the “I really want to but” category..
So here it is. My motivation is sparked by my honeymoon I will be taking soon and hoping it provides me a new perspective on life. I’m hoping it will recharge the battery in my life,restoring hope and igniting reflection as traveling seems to have that effect.
Here’s to all Beginnings, Ends, and Everything in between.
