Main Dish

I have made this yummy dish a couple of times now and I still can't get enough of it. I am at work and went to reach for my leftovers, but alas, I have forgotten them. But I have Quinoa and Pesto on the brain so thought I would spead the good word.

Picture and Recipe found here.
 The tomatoes are by far the best best best part of the whole dish, so I absolutley reccomend full force with the tomatoes!

 And another winning shot from the iPhone- kinda blurry (and totally under styled) the final ta-da moment...

Pinterest SF Meet Up

This is not the first blog posting from me about my love for Pinterest. I think everyone who knows me, knows that I love me some pinning! See original post here.   If you don't know what it is, here is my favorite definition....

So a couple weeks ago, while sitting on my computer after getting home from sitting in front of a computer all day, I was pinning and remembered that I had accepted a Pinterest Meet Up invite @ West Elm in Emmryville for that same night. What the hell. Why not?! Of course it was only 7 miles away, but it took me an hour to get over the Bay Bridge at 5:30 on a Thursday, but whatever! It was worth it. I love me some West Elm too- I walked out with a cookbook for a gift and a new pillow sham for the sofa which is totally "sofa king awesome." Check out some pics...

The SmileBooth would have been a whole lot cuter- if I actually had someone else to play with in front of the camera. Oh well- not my best shot, but that's nothing new!

Dirty One

I haven't been very consistent in my blogging lately. To be honest, I have toyed with the idea of canning the whole thing. But after some more thought- I think it really is a fun way just to document my thoughts once in a while. I guess what I am trying to say is that I do have thoughts and I don't document enough. 1 post a month or so isn't what I had in mind when setting this whole thing up.

Any Who. Today is my B'day. Yay for 31. I still feel a lot like I did one year ago today. (see last year's post here). It has been a delightful year of eating, drinking, working, and loads of HBO series on Netflix. Looking forward to all the changes before 32. Damn its kinda weird to think that I am 31. I still think that 1990 was 10 years ago.

Today we are heading to the sunny East Bay to the Claremont Hotel in Berkley where I will be soaking up my skin with some sun and some fancy spa soap.
