This weeks food highlights - Week 7 & Lovers Day!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Currently our kitchen is ripped apart as we are installing new counter tops, sink and faucet.  I will hopefully have a kitchen sink again by tomorrow or Thursday! Safe to say I won't be making anything to exciting for food in the next few days as I am trying to minimize dishes. For now it is washing dishes in the bathroom sink (and the dishwasher!)  I am okay with living through this chaos in order to get things done around the house. I will post some kitchen progress pictures soon.

Here are the food highlights from this past week:
Top Left: Steak & Veggie Panini's with Tomato, Mozzarella Basil Salad Top Right: Moroccan Chicken & Chickpea Bowl with Goat Cheese (I adapted this recipe a bit…I used Quinoa instead of couscous and omitted the pistachios & dates Bottom Left: Almond Butter Cocoa Truffles (a very yummy snack to satisfy your sweet tooth :) Bottom Right: Veggie Burrito Bowl

3 Years ago on February 13th Kevin proposed to me in our living room! We have made it a tradition to celebrate what I like to call 'Lovers Day' every year on this day! Of course we try to celebrate our love everyday but it is fun to make a fancier dinner, drink a nice bottle of wine oh and dress up :) We took a couple pics to commemorate the occasion!

We enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine that I purchased while wine touring in Napa Valley, CA with my Mom and sister in November
