weekend wrap up

10 Oct

Friday was Novio’s birthday, and we went to Miami to celebrate. The next morning (well, more like a few hours later) we packed up and headed to Naples. Naples is a great little city that reminds me a lot of being back home in Pensacola…so it was nice to get there and visit! We met up with a friend from Fort Lauderdale and his mom, and had dinner with his family last night in Marco Island. We even got to squeeze in a few hours at the pool before heading back home and preparing for the daily grind again…

Just another day at work. Told you that mirror would be back! I felt a little lazy this morning so I borrowed a super soft shirt from Novio. Guys clothes are definitely more comfortable! But tailored enough when tucked into skinny jeans to pass as work-wear. Also, check out how tan my feet look! I’m obsessed with Jergens Daily Glow Moisturizer…I haven’t tanned the old fashion way in a while. Well except for that trip to the pool a few weeks ago…but still. Happy weekend everyone! I’ve got BIG THINGS to post at the end of this weekend so I hope you all enjoy! PS I cut 1.5 inches off my hair and changed the color! Can anyone tell?? xoxo

Oh and please excuse my face/facial expression…I dont wear makeup to work! I think I look a little “hippy” too…hopefully because I’m standing sort of bowlegged. Anyway enough critiquing myself!! 🙂

sunday cooking

20 Sep

Yesterday, I decided to make something for Novio since he often gets homesick and misses Colombian cuisine. After failing miserably at arepas, I went a little easier on myself and made sopa de arroz y carne.

dice 2 large potatoes…then 1.5 lbs of beef

then pour 7 cups of water, 1/2 cup of peas, and 1 chicken buillon cube, salt and pepper, into a large pot with the meat and potatoes 

bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 50 minutes. Then mix in 1/2 cup of rice ( I used Uncle Bens pre cooked so that I didnt have to cook it as long…or use a seperate pot. Gotta keep things simple!). Continue simmering for 5 minutes.

Pour into a bowl and top with fresh cilantro! Im pretty sure I want to put fresh cilantro on everything now its deliccccious…!

easy does it: omelettes 101

13 Sep

Every girl (and guy for that matter) should know how to make the perfect omelette. Why, you ask? Because it’s unbelievably EASY and because people love them. So next time you host your friends, family, or significant other…whip up some omelettes!

For this recipe, I used:

 4 eggs (with a dash of nonfat organic milk mixed in, for fluffiness)

2 pieces of salami

1 roma tomato

1/8th of a white onion

2 pieces of ham, shredded

1/4th of a large polska sausage link

2 slices jarlsberg lite cheese

make things easier on yourself by prepping your toppings prior to even cracking the eggs open

pour the eggs into a large skillet (i sprinkled in some pepper…i love pepper). Let this cook a few minutes on high. You’ll see it bubble up some–I poke these down with a fork to ensure everything cooks all the way through. Pick up the pan after it starts bubbling and swirl the batter so it sticks to the sides of the pan. This is very important–this is how you will peel the omelette from the pan and fold it at the end.

add all the toppings into one side of the omelette. Let it cook about 1 minute and a half, and you notice the opposite side egg start to peel away from the skillet, grab a fork and spatula and carefully pick it up and throw it over the toppings (I messed this up like the first 5 times I tried it…so dont feel bad)

and voila! serve immediately. As you can see, I like so many toppings that mine kinda splits open anyway. Who cares! You’re going to eat it anyway. I often pour a little hot sauce on it so then you really can’t see its imperfections.

Best complimented with a rainy day and mimosas.

And also, you can see a 4 egg omelette comfortably serves 2.

my surprise!

12 Sep

When I left for the game yesterday, Novio told me he had a surpriiiiise planned for me for dinner. I came home to fresh shrimp and lobsters, and we had wine and champagne and caprese salad and it was all DELICIOUS! What can I say, I’m a lucky gal 😉
