{sheet pan salmon}

You guys – I wrote in my Intentions for the week to share a recipe. And here ya go. Holding myself to it. Last night I made my famous (not really lol) {sheet pan sausage + veggies}. I’m a BIG fan of sheet pan meals.

The clean up is key for week nights. And they’re typically pretty healthy recipes….protein + veggies.

Did I mention, I no longer have a dishwasher? I AM the dishwasher. Ha! Our little old 1950’s house has no dishwasher. We plan to do a kitchen renovation in about 6 months….fingers crossed. And a dishwasher is at the tip-pity top of my “must have” list.

I was always one to store my dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Until it was full, then run it. Anyone else?

And I made my sheet pan sausage + veggies last night, it reminded me of this salmon dish I made a few weeks ago. I snapped photos and planned to share it the next day. Then I probably decided to blog about Target or something.

{copycat starbucks egg bites}

You guys, I hate to say it, but can 2020 get any worse? I take that back. Yes, yes it can. Everyday it’s something new + different. Not good stuff either. My heart breaks for all the fire victims.

I did see, possibly, the best covid new to date. Holy Rosary is doing a drive-thru fair taco fundraiser. I might camp out the night before. Anyone wanna join me? Save the dates 8/29 – 8/30. Holy Rosary Community Center on California Street. I’ll see you there!

On my weekly intentions, I’m going to add: Share a recipe. I miss sharing writing up yummy recipes. Then seeing you guys recreate them in your kitchen. So, I’m going to be better at it.

Anyone else is obsessed with the Starbucks egg bites? They are such a great healthy + quick option for breakfast. And I’ve found a way to make them very similarly but with your oven at home! No fancy equipment needed, just a little water bath and a muffin tray.
