Good evening – how was your day? Mine was suuuper busy and I had to forego my workout for Operation: Get the House Ready for Baby Shower! I came home, swept the stairs and every single room in the house and then mopped all the tile! There is seriously nothing better than a clean house. I’m kind of a germaphobe/clean freak, so I actually enjoy cleaning. Except…that I have a completely irrational fear of cleaning bathrooms. Literally, even cleaning the vanity and sink area makes me gag and run. That’s what brave husbands are for though, right?
What household chore makes you want to run in the opposite direction?
Oh, I actually stopped at Bed, Bath & Beyond before I came home and picked up a couple of Royal Blue Snuggies. Now, I already have a pink Slanket – the far superior version of the Snuggie – so what, you may be asking, would I need two Royal Blue Snuggies for? All will be revealed…in time…!!
For dinner I made one my all time favorite summer meals – Fresh Vegetable Pasta Toss. The mix includes:
- Whole wheat pasta
- Sundried tomatoes
- Chicken Broth
- Olive oil
- Dried Thyme
Ohhhh my – this meal is so light and refreshing and summery!! The clear star of the dish was the sun dried tomato – picked up at a farmers market during our recent trip to San Francisco! They were so sweet and chewy – a strong burst of flavor that I tried to include in every fabulous bite!
I will post the recipe tomorrow friends, because you’ll want to include this in your rotation!!
When do you start to make the transition from warm, comforting meals like chilis and soups, to more summery dishes like my vegetable pasta dish and grilling?
I’m off to do more Shower prep – wish me luck!!
