pants are optional?
twelve practices: feb check in.

foodie friday.

I didn't manage to upload any photos this am, so you'll have to use your imagination. Two things to share today -

1. Kale & Quinoa "greek" salad - this has been a lunch favorite this week. Saute kale with olive oil over medium heat for just a few minutes. Toss with cooked quinoa - I just made a bunch in my rice cooker one morning & used it throughout the week. Throw in a few kalamata olives & feta cheese. YUM! (I also wanted a bit of crunch, so I added a tablespoon or so of pumpkin seeds - not greek, but good!)

2. Gorgonzola, Pear, & Walnut Risotto - Barb & I made this in Chicago, and I decided to wing it last night. Tons of recipes online (go google. I'll wait) One change that I made - I sauted the walnuts & pears in a bit of butter before adding them. The pears were looking a bit sad, so basically used the butter to compensate!

Oh, and a *bonus* - my fave smoothie from the week - almond/coconut milk blend, banana, peanut butter, oatmeal, and maca powder.

Happy (foodie) Friday!
