I’ve only recently been introduced to Thai food. Pad Thai is my favorite… I would never pass it up! My latest quick and easy go-to recipe is Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps from Women’s Health magazine. They’re very similar to the appetizers you get at P.F. Changs restaurant (or any Asian restaurant, really) and they’re very delicious. Here’s a quick overview of how to make them:
I visited the bridal salon today to work with the seamstress to finish cutting my dress into the shape that I want it, so now all she has to do is sew it up nice and pretty. I’m really excited because it’s coming together beautifully! While I can’t show you the dress right now, I will offer a little sneak peak of the shoes I’ve chosen to wear with it.
I will say that this isn’t the actual color of the shoes I’ll wear. They’re being dyed to match the dress.
We’re just 2 months away! Aghhhh! 😀
I really enjoy cooking. Mostly because I love eating. And recently, I’ve become very aware of what goes into my body. I like to think of myself as a “conscientious carnivore”; I prefer beef that was grass-fed and then slaughtered humanely, local and fresh fruits and vegetables, free-range chicken and eggs that never get couped up in cages or see the light of day… you get the picture. I appreciate the animals that I eat. (If you’re interested in learning more, I recommend the documentary Food, Inc.)
I love flowers. They’re bright and happy and cheerful. Even the ones that aren’t bright are still cheerful. This week, I’m thankful for beautiful flowers that brighten up your day and add a small touch of beauty to your life.
