I have a job as a teacher as many of you know. The months during the school year are busy for me. I become overwhelmed and stress and minimize myself to doing things that directly effect my to-do list and my own personal health. Which means blogging about food goes out the window. I was reminded of this just yesterday.
Over the past few months, I've run my first 5k, decided not to replace my wrecked car opting for the biking lifestyle and have rekindled my love for the outdoors by visiting Smith Rock.
Yesterday my friend and I were talking about things that inspire us to take action. She told me that my blog inspired her to cook more and try new things. She's one of my 7 followers and someone I love. It was so wonderful and yet so disappointing to hear this. I thought, "Wow, when's the last time I posted? She hasn't cooked for a while then!" Haha. So I decided to get back to it and post at least once every two weeks.
My husband has also gotten into making homemade pasta after being inspired by Lydia. Below is a photo of raviolis that we made together; stuffed with Italian Tofurkey Sausages, spinach and tofu ricotta. Look for more pasta adventures and recipes on the simplicity of making your own pasta!
