Anyone else super duper excited that it is Friday? It is supposed to be pretty here, so Bryan and I have planned on riding a local mountain bike trail tomorrow afternoon and then checking out a lake with a supposed running trail and park after church on Sunday. How have your workouts gone this week? Feel free to post about them in the comment section if you need a little encouragement. I've got a few great smoothie recipes to share next week. For girls' night on Monday, Dr. Ash made a wonderful whole-wheat pasta dish that is packed full of good carbs. The original recipe did not call for chicken, but we added it. Also, this recipe serves two, and we found that making more requires a little more olive oil and lemon at the end.
Lemon Garlic Spaghetti
4 oz dry spaghetti
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp pine nuts (we didn't use)
5-6 basil leaves, chiffonaded
Pour in olive oil and chopped up garlic into a small frying pan and let it cook over low, until the garlic starts to brown on edges. Immediately remove from heat and reserve. While that is going, boil your spaghetti.
Chiffonade some basil leaves.
Mix cheese and pine nuts in a large bowl, and add the garlic and its oil. Squeeze in lemon juice.
Add cooked spaghetti and toss until well combined.
Serve with freshly ground pepper.
On Monday I paired my Max and Chloe necklace with a coral necklace that I tend to wear in the summer. It went nicely with a striped tank and olive green jacket. You likey?
Here is another random outfit picture from one day when I was running errands. I picked up a few goodies for my sister and went into the dressing room just so I could take an outfit pic. Seriously, their mirrors are so much better than mine at home. ;) My mom got me the cute burgundy silk shrug for Christmas and I heart it.
That is about all that I can think of interest to tell you today. Oh, other than the fact that I have the sweetest husband who saved me the last piece of my favorite See's Candy because he said I deserve it.
