Kale pesto

It's been a long time since I posted. 

Wonderful news - we are expecting our first child in June! 

Heartbreak - my mom is really sick.

I have been taking it day by day, but my art is diminished for now. 

I was randomly craving a donut on the way home from work. So I made a kale pesto instead (I'm trying to be on a health kick lately for the baby girl's sake :)

To make: blend kale, basil, arugula, and garlic with spices, nuts and lemon. Serve over pasta with veggies.

La Jolla Cove - San Diego

I had a wonderful time painting at the beach. A little random 3 year-old joined me.

Roasted butternut squash and arugula

A winter bowl with roasted butternut squash, roasted chickpeas, and arugula served over lemon orzo.

I've been drawing people I love during HS Art Club, as students work on their own themes.

Of course I love my hard-working husband, David.

a card for a friend

A colleague left unexpectedly for an extended medical leave. Always so hard. Love and prayers coming her way!

winter pesto

I am proud of cooking for myself for the 3rd time this week. I love cooking for others, but want to go out for a burrito if left alone.

Tonight I made an arugula and kale pesto using up the scraps of greens, lemon, and Parmesan in the fridge.

roasted veggies and lemon sesame quinoa

It has been a simply lovely vacation. We had two bonus snow days that made it a solid two weeks.

I feel rested and recharged.

For Sunday Supper before heading back to reality, I roasted all of my favorites (beets, broccoli, chickpeas, and red onion) and served them over a lemon-sesame quinoa.

The best part was sharing with people I love.

The second best is leftovers. Let the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year begin!
