Happy Friday, my friends!
I don’t know about you, but this week seemed to drag on forever for me. I got home from work at about 7:30 PM last night and started on dinner right away. I knew if I didn’t get to cooking immediately it would probably be a dinner full of bananas, peanut butter and chocolate chips with a side of white wine. Which really probably wouldn’t have been too bad, in all honesty.
Instead, since I was really in a ‘curl up on the couch and watch serial killer or vampire shows’ mood, I gave myself an ultimatum. Either empty the dishwasher and clean the kitchen, or spend time writing a blog post—since I didn’t get around to drafting up a post on my train ride home. Instead of blogging, I watched replays of some great Periscopes by Lindsay and Katrina.
So, I’m terribly sorry my friends. On a whim I choose to empty the dishwasher.
Today I’m leaving you mostly with beautiful pictures of eggs and sauteed Brussels sprouts with asparagus pesto. I WILL tell you though, that sauteeing Brussels sprouts might be my favorite method of preparation yet! Although they are good roasted, prepping them thinly sliced and sauteed was the bomb-diggity.
Now you’ll just have to go see for yourself!
PS. If you haven’t tried asparagus pesto yet, you haven’t been living.
