So, it's basically March and still cold as ever. In fact, snow is in the forecast again next week. Seriously, what the hell.
Anyways, there was a day or two last week where temps were above freezing. We, of course, capitalized on it and spent as much time outside as possible.
*No head on shots of T because he literally does not sit still all day. These are the only photos that weren't blurry from him bolting from one thing to the next.
What else have I been doing to entertain myself in the cold?
I whipped up this pasta dish a few weeks ago and it's been in the rotation ever since. Super easy AND healthy.
I don't have exact measurements for a recipe because I kind of threw it together based on what I had at the house.
Here's what I did: sautéed 2 bunches of kale in olive oil and a few minced garlic cloves, sprinkled in some red pepper flakes, salt & pepper. I chopped up 2 big chicken breasts that I had cooked earlier. 1 box of whole wheat penne from TJ's. And about 1 cup of Parmesan cheese. I combined everything in a big bowl and tossed it together with a little bit more olive oil, salt & pepper, and lemon juice. I kept testing it until I thought it tasted right.
And balancing it out with these.....
I was so excited to have plans for Valentines Day but Mother Nature had a different idea (more snow, duh). So, we ended up staying in and giving Tanner a roll of painters tape which provided him/us 30 minutes of entertainment. Parenting win.
Tanner loves taking pics on our iPhones. #selfieexpert
I have a trip planned to Chicago next month to visit my college roomie and couldn't be more excited! Counting down the days...
