Asparagus Tart with Balsamic Reduction
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend consisted of 670 miles of driving to and from San Francisco in a span of two days, a late night showing of Iron Man 3 on Saturday night, and a friend’s law school graduation in which I was an hour late to, causing me to rush and trip up the stairs in the auditorium in front of an entire crowd. All in all, other than the mortifying fall to my face in front of hundreds and hundreds of people, it was an awesome weekend.
Tonkatsu (Japanese Pork Cutlet) #SundaySupper
Jason and I try to penny pinch whenever we can. He’s a starving grad student and I’m working 2 jobs (which includes blog work because let’s face it - blogging is a full-time job!) to pay off sky high credit card bills and to ultimately save up for a house. That’s when budgeting for groceries becomes incredibly important.
Cinnamon Puppy Chow
I’ve had the last 3 days off from work and it’s been glorious. I’ve been taking 2 hour long naps, watching way too much SVU that I wake up to the theme song playing in my head, and finally sitting down and learning Lightroom.
Veggie Flatbread Pizza
Friday nights are usually take-out nights for us, whether it’s Thai, Chinese or pizza. It’s kind of a ritual we picked up to give us a chance to “have the night off” in a sense after a long work week. But sometimes the greasiness from all that food can be too much to handle. That’s why I made these whole wheat veggie flatbread pizzas. Not only that, my skinny jeans were not very happy with all that take-out food I was devouring on a weekly basis.
