It’s An I Don’t Know What

Happy Thursday, Everyone! I hope you’re getting as excited for Christmas as I am!

I’m much further behind in my Christmas preparation than I usually am, though our home is filled with Christmas music and talk of decorating and baking. I have to start actually working on it, there are only three weeks until Christmas!

Some of our decorating is done, but we have yet to get a tree. I’m a big stickler for having a real tree, and the ones we looked at yesterday looked pretty sad. I’m sure we could have dressed them up a bit, but I have a difficult time with the idea of spending money for an already dead looking tree.

So I get to spend tomorrow out Christmas shopping and looking for a tree!

Anyway, today I’ve been feeling a little under the weather and wanted something nice and warm to contrast with the cold outside. So I decided to make something… I’m not entirely sure what to call it, but it tastes good! That’s what really matters anyway, right?

I just threw some stuff in a pan. Rice, a can of tomatoes (I hate using the canned ones, but it’s all I had), jalapenos, brussel sprouts, margarita mix, pepper, garlic and onion powder, oregano and a bit of pink salt. Then I topped it off with some shredded cheese! Yum!

I hope you’re staying warm and cozy on this chilly December day. Have you gotten a Christmas tree yet, or do you like to wait a little longer?

I’d love to hear from you! Have a wonderful day!

Oh Happy Day!

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

This past week has been one of growth and transition for me. My husband and I are finally really getting settled in our new place, making it our own. Embracing all the new opportunities.

My Monday was quite the eventful one. It was so good! Most of the day was spent shooting (photography). I did still have time to make a quick lunch though.

Warm pasta salad. Yum! I know what you’re thinking… That doesn’t sound too good. Trust me on this, it’s better than it sounds. This would be a great side at a late summer/early fall BBQ or cookout.

Transitions, right?

In other exciting news, Monday was also the day a magazine contacted me asking for permission to use one of my photos! I was so excited!

Enough about me, here’s the recipe! What exciting things have happened for you this week? I’d love to hear about it in the comments! Have a wonderful week!
