A Few Favorite Things

Chicken Pesto Power Salad
A pesto chicken power salad with kale, quinoa, avocado, hard-boiled egg, and sunflower seeds — from Addy’s Sandwich Bar and a frequent lunch of mine

 

I’ve been living at Addy’s Sandwich Bar and Greenleaf Juicing Company during the work day. There’s something about sitting at a desk 12 hours a day that makes a girl crave some fresh air vegetables. I’m pretty content to sustain solely on power salads and steamed soups, but the occasional pâté sandwich and cup of soup isn’t a bummer either.

Since I haven’t been in the kitchen except to blend a smoothie in the morning [or lets be honest, the night before because I want every precious minute of sleep possible] or to feed Roma, here’s a few things I’ve been bookmarking for later:

+this arugula cannelloni and feta salad with creamy avocado dressing

+I want to eat all of the rosemary strawberry buttermilk muffins

+mmmm, vindaloo that just happens to be paleo 

+bring on the cauliflower and brown rice gratin

+there’s no such thing as too much (marmalade) cake

And some bonus travel stuff:

+I plan on eating my weight in Francesinhas in Porto

+the Portuguese are big into tripe, and I’m not usually, but I’m going to give it a whirl
