  • yellow and red tomatoes
  • shitake mushrooms
  • leeks
  • zestar apples
  • clapp pears

This week has been a crazy one! Not only am I working more hours, but it’s Troy Night Out tonight AND the beau is leaving for a mini vacation to Maine tomorrow. We’ve been scrambling to get the apartment cleaned, laundry washed and fresh meals prepared. I did double workouts twice this week and am thankful that today is a scheduled rest day because I needed the two extra hours of sleep… tomorrow’s long run should be interesting.

Last night amongst the craziness, I ran home to whip up a quick dish for dinner; hence why there are two photographs. I made a stir-fry using the tomatoes, leeks, shitake mushrooms, some leftover kale from a previous week and added some spices, balsamic vinegar and farro. Who said clean food can’t be fast, easy and cheap?!

Because I’ll be alone the next five days, I’ve already made some plans and lists of things that I need to get done. I don’t know what it is about being super busy, but it motivates me to be super organized and complete things that have been on the back burner. Makes me even more busier but… I feel accomplished. Until I burn out. But at least my closet will be organized and my desk will be clear. 

Sunday despite the prediction for rain, Paula and I will be heading back up to the mountains to reach three more summits! We’ve already experienced so much rain this summer that at this point, I could care less; especially because we aren’t staying overnight. Monday will be a laundry day- hand washing items, sorting, donating, and choosing the items that will carry me into autumn. Oh! And speaking of clothes, I’ve ordered a pair of jeans online and am anticipating the perfect fit. I’ll most definitely share if there’s success!

Being home means being in the kitchen to prepare more meals! Because I used up most of the veggies last night, I may check out Engelke Farm to see if they’re open- if so, I’m going to get me some cherry tomatoes and eggplants! I’d love to make an eggplant parmesan and a dish of roasted tomatoes and vegan cheddar biscuits! I found a dinosaur cookie cutter one day walking home from brunch and I’ve been dying to use it. Lastly, I’m not a pear person. But I’m a crisp kind of gal. I’ll search the internet for some recipes and combine what I think sounds delicious and try my hardest at baking.

newveggieart!Lastly, I’d like to share with you this new print that I have to hang in our tiny kitchen! The beau has actually been working on this print for the last couple of weeks and I’m so happy with the way that it turned out. It features some of our favorite seasonal fruits and veggies that we’ve received over the past year as a Field Goods member. Super cute, right?

Have an action-packed holiday weekend! Hope it’s filled with good food, good times and good vibes!
