Morning. It’s cold and gray in Charlotte this morning.
Perfect weather for the first fire of the season last night. Fires and candles make things so cozy. Especially for watching my newest obsession Scandal. This show is highly addictive. I started watching it on Netflix a few weeks ago and I’m already halfway through season two. Kerry Washington is so beautiful!
Some recent meals for you.
Two eggs scrambled and a green smoothie.
Another green smoothie and coffee. I really just wanted to showcase my cups! 😉
Salad packed with super foods…kale, spinach, mango, avocado, salmon, artichokes, pecans, goat cheese, tomatoes and salmon.
Homemade tomato soup. I sauteed onions and garlic, deglazed the pan with balsamic vinegar, added some spices, tomatoes and vegetable broth and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. Pureed the mix in the blender in small batches to get the soup smooth and added a little plain Greek yogurt for creaminess.
You can’t have tomato soup without grilled cheese!
Leftover lemon chicken with roasted mushrooms, asparagus and butternut squash. So simple, so clean and so yummy.
I’ve got this sweet face in my lap while I work. Time to be productive!
