I have to chime in here with my girl, Caitlin, on her Operation Beautiful project. So often us women are viewed as the weaker link, but I pose to challenge that notion completely. How have YOU showed your inner strength and beauty so far this year? The year is only half over and so far I have graduated from culinary school (something that was a dream for me since I was a little girl), stood in for my mom as I held my little brother’s hand when he passed away, and have quit a “safe” job to pursue my dreams. Yes, I am much (Much) poorer than I wish I was right now, but I am much happier as well. I never in a million years could even think for a second that I would be strong enough to keep going after my brother died so suddenly but as they say, a woman is like a teabag—you don’t know her real strength until you put her in hot water. Amen? Amen.
Today was VERY productive in many, many ways that I just cannot share with you yet!!!! I promise it will be worth it and it will be soon. Is it killing you yet?! muhahahaha I snacked on a Super Charge Me cookie + another big crumble straight out of the freezer around 3:15—-
- almost half a box of whole wheat penne pasta
- 1 jar of Whole Foods organic pasta sauce
- 1 sliced summer squash
- 1/2 sliced zucchini
- 3 garlic cloves, grated on microplane
- healthy pinch hot pepper flakes
- 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- cheese! After I had cooked the pasta and combined it with all the above, I sprinkled mozzarella cheese over top. Cheese makes Ryan happy! 🙂
I baked my concoction for 15 minutes at 350 until the cheese was nice and bubbly.
