50 Days Of Gray

February 10, 2016

Hellllloooo. Anyone else craving a tropical vacation?! Yup, it’s that time of year. Not so much because of the cold but the gray skies. The sun just hides this time of year. But the good news is in Virginia spring is not too far away. We’re in the thick of winter, and it’s darkest before dawn!

Just more reasons to hide out in closets and hibernate : )

Breakfasts are always the most popular meal of the day and my most photographed! Here’s some power toast (with sunshine!) with nut butter, banana and berries. Plus tea!

Lunch salad with salmon salad on top, Cinnamon Nut Thins and peppers. I made the salmon salad with greek yogurt and mustard, and those Nut Thins are my new favorite!

This one was sautéed kale, sausage, eggplant and havarti cheese. Anytime I can make a hot lunch it’s a win. Also a win if cheese is involved ; )

Dinner at Sarah’s house for a Stella & Dot party. Sometimes you gotta combine veggies and hummus, cheese and wine to make a meal : )
