Spring Flowers.

Spring is officially here, and I’m feeling energized.  Did some grocery shopping and picked up a bouquet of mini spray roses, and decided to make a couple of arrangements for the home.  These jewel toned mini roses are just lovely.

Pretty flowers in my office area.

I arranged some for the living room as well.


What Is Love?!

Love is, homemade Chicken Pot Pie.

Heart shaped ramekins from Whole Foods, Pie Mold from Wiliiams Sonoma

Fresh out of the oven...smells delicious!

Dinner for 2, served with love!

The filling inside is gooey and full of flavor. Ckn, celery, carrots, and onions. Simple, but good eats!

If you’re interested in the recipe, drop me a msg!  I’ll be happy to share.


Sneak peak inside shopping tote from the Farmer’s Market!

I look forward to the weekends, because there’s less people on the road, and I get to stop by the local Farmer’s Market. I’ll posted number times about my trip to the Farmer’s Market, but here’s your chance to see what’s in our shopping totes!

Asian pears, fuji apples, nira (Japanese chives), daikon radish, nasu (Japanese eggplant), vine ripened tomatoes, and leeks…

Now here’s a fierce lunch box!

Was browsing around Whole Foods and came across this intimating lunch box. First thought, FIERCE!

Hahaha, I think lunch boxes back in the day, consisted of super hero characters and Care Bears. It was oh so innocent!

REeeeeooooow!

REeeeeooooow!


Happy Happy Labor Day!

Woke up to another beautiful sunny day, so JP and I are about to head out on the cruisers. Before heading out, I fixed some mini pita sandwiches!

Whole wheat mini pitas, stuffed with organic hummus, alfalfa sprouts, and sliced japanese cucumbers. It was fresh, light, and very flavorful!

Very healthy and tasty pita sandwiches

Lemonade (Good Eats LA)

Woke up to a beautiful sunny day and decided to hit the roads with JP to find some lunch.

1 stop: Farmer’s Market for some fresh veggies & fruit for the week.

2 stop: Lemonade, for some lunch & of course some lemonade!

After scoping out Yelp for the reviews, we decided to go to Lemonade for a quick lunch on the way back home. This cafeteria-ish place was packed to the brim! Good food selection and good pricing as well.

For lunch, we had the strawberry spinach salad, cucumber cantaloupe with prosciutto salad, then cous cous with wild mushrooms (w/parmesan & truffle oil), and a side of ahi tuna with a citrus vinaigrette.

For all of the general side items, you can do the following combos:

1 item: $4.00
2 items: $7.50
3 items: okay, i forgot!!!

Then, all lemonades are $2.75. So far, my favs are: Peach Ginger Lemonade & Blueberry Mint Lemon Lemonade.
