My Go To Pasta Salad – Step by Step

18 Apr

Morning lovelies!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Thursday so far! I was going through some of my photos and realized I made this pasta salad a few weeks ago and I totally forgot to post the recipe.

Silly me.

Well, on the plus side, I didn’t make you a real pasta salad and then forget to give it to and try to serve it up to you guys 2 weeks later.

That would be weird.

See, this just shows us that there is always a silver lining to every situation. You’re welcome.

Anyways…

I had a really fun weekend with the girls like I mentioned last week, and I am going to do a post of some pictures for tomorrow so that you can see what we got up to.

For now, I have a bunch of photos to post so let’s get on with the recipe, shall we?

Caprese BLT Sandwich {Step-By-Step}

9 Apr

Meow my kittens!

How is everyone doing today? I am on my second cup of coffee and feeling amazing!

Ha.

Can’t wait for 3pm when my energy levels drop and I feel like I’m gonna pass out. Anyone else have the 3pm slump?

Well last night before I headed off to workout, I was at home alone and decided to make myself a yummy dinner. I stopped at this cute little store we have nearby and bought all the stuff to make this sandwich.

Strawberry G&T

13 Jul

Guess what?

Today is day two of my Birthday celebration! my real Birthday was Tuesday, but Tuesday is a lame day for a Birthday, so I am celebrating again tonight.

Since it’s Friday, and since I’ll be getting my drink on tonight, I think you should too!

I am a big wino and normally I choose to drink wine in most circumstances, in fact I pretty much polished off a half litre to myself on Tuesday…

HEY, it was my Birthday.

Although I likey me wine, gin is usually my spirit of choice if I am to have a mixed drink. People already think I was born 85 years old so why fight it.

Plus gin and tonic is fairly low cal in the realm of mixed drinks so it all works for me. I think a single gin and tonic usually comes in at around 100 calories, so that’s a big plus!

The other night I was making myself a G&T when I noticed I had a bowl of strawberries in the fridge and that’s how this baby was born.

You can feel all fancy when you’re muddling your strawberries and lime. And you can feel all tipsy when you realize you ran out of strawberries….and tonic…2 drinks ago…

What an imagination I have, making up such bizarre stories like that…

Anyhoo.

Strawberry G&T:

Makes one 5 ounce drink

2 strawberries

1 tsp sugar

2 wedges of lime

1 ounce gin (I always buy Bombay Sapphire but use whatever brand you like)

4 ounces tonic water

Crushed ice

 

Cut up the strawberries into quarters, place into a bowl with the sugar and stir. Let them sit for about 10-15 minutes until the sugar granules are dissolved.

In a serving glass, add the strawberries and squeeze in one of the lime wedges, and drop the juiced lime wedge into the glass as well. With a wooden spoon (or you might have one of those fancy muddler things) squash the strawberries and the lime together for a few minutes, until the strawberry is in small pieces. Add the ice, gin and then tonic water and give the whole thing a good stir.

Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.

Enjoy!
