Blue Moose

Is there such a thing as a blue moose? So says the Blue Moose Bar & Grill I went to last night. We were celebrating Daniel’s mother’s birthday. I’ve never heard of it before but there are a few of them located in Kansas. Pretty much everything on the menu sounded good to me! I ended up splitting an order of the Mahi Fish Tacos and the Greek Pizza with Daniel. I was so hungry […]

Almond Crusted Swai

We’re back at it again, using up our frozen fish!  This recipe calls for Tilapia but I think any white fish would be delicious with this recipe. Daniel found it at allrecipes.com. It makes enough for 8 fish fillets but we reduced the ingredients down for two. What you need (for 2): 1 egg 1/4 tsp lemon pepper 1/4 tsp garlic salt 1/4 cup ground almond 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese 2 (6 oz) fish […]

Pass Your Plate

Yesterday started off pretty good with my usual cereal, almond milk, and smoothie. For lunch I had a MorningStar burger with 2 slices of whole wheat bread. I’m not vegetarian but I’m not much of a carnivore. These burgers taste better to me than hamburgers and they’re healthier! Winning. I enjoyed it with a side of leftover rice and stir fry veggies. Then dinner went down hill.  Daniel and I met up with our friends […]

Roses are Red

When I came back sunday night from the boating trip Daniel had a little surprise for me…. He’s always so sweet surprising me with flowers. Even when I was in Germany for a couple weeks with my family he ordered flowers to be sent to me.  I was shocked! I love having fresh flowers around. They brighten my day.  I just wanted to let you all know how lucky I am =) Ok, now to […]

I’m on a Boat!

And it’s going fast and I’ve got a nautical themed pashmina afghan! Ok I don’t have either of those but I was on a boat! Unfortunately we had some technical difficulties and the boat was over heating, meaning we couldn’t go fast. And at one point we couldn’t go at all! The boat wouldn’t start. Luckily, we had a jetski that could tow the boat back to the dock. It was a slow process but […]

High School Reunion

So yesterday was absolutely fabulous. As you know, a good friend was married yesterday.  Afterwards, my friends and I met at a local bistro for lunch.  I had this amazing fresh spinach and fruit salad with vinaigrette. There was granola and feta in it. Yum! Later that night we headed to Dhithya’s house for the sleep over.  Crazy side story, but Dhithya’s family lives in the house I grew up in. No lie! My parents […]

Donuts!

Guess what I’m up to today! Let’s see, it’s a saturday, it’s the summer…. a wedding! Yep. A dear friend from high school was married today.  I loved how non-traditional it was, they had donuts instead of cake! Check it out: Maple on chocolate and lavender with coconut topping.  You may be surprised but I only ate one donut! Yeah, I’m hardcore (just kidding, I totally have no self control usually). I think it’s because […]

No Short Cuts

This never happens but yesterday I was so caught up with re-staining my chairs I forgot to eat lunch! I did have a few snacks though. In case you’re considering doing some staining of your own, don’t use a 2-in-1 stain + poly! We’re definitely newbies because we didn’t shake up the can very well so it wasn’t very dark, then today we stir it thoroughly and now it’s super dark and thick and looks […]
