Hah, I just love Taylor.

If this doesn't encourage me to wear sunscreen... wow.

"Friends" plot holes. Gasp!

Honest slogans.

Popped into J.Crew this week and it got me SO excited about fall shopping. Also, has anyone been into the new Banana yet?

Headed home tomorrow for a friend's wedding. Can't wait!!

Read & a recipe.

I made something last night that I don't make often around these parts... pasta. After reading Emily's post a week or two ago, I couldn't stop thinking about her pasta al limone recipe (here). So good.

It was also really quick! Easy ingredients: linguine, lemons (zest and juice), basil, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, heavy cream, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.

 




{Served with a simple arugula salad.}



There is a lot leftover, which is great since I haven't planned dinners for the remainder of the week... Oops.

Happy Hump Day!

Read & a recipe.

Last night I made a Smitten Kitchen recipe I've cooked before and forgotten how much I love it: spiced turkey meatballs with a chick pea smash.

The meatballs are super easy: 1 lb. ground turkey (I went with turkey breast), one egg, 2/3 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon of each: salt, coriander and cumin, pinch of cayenne pepper. Mix together and form golf ball size balls. 


{To brown the meatballs, put in a pan with olive oil for a few minutes before transferring to a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 18 minutes.}
 



The chick pea smash is also simple: two cans of chick peas, a handful of green olives (coarsely chopped), juice of one and a half lemons, salt, pepper, pinch of cayenne and I also added a little cumin. Drizzle with olive oil.
 






Really, really good.

Yum, this and this could be good weeknight dinners in the near future.

I noticed these a while ago (and Pete tried to buy me the "R" as a Christmas present but it was sold out!), but it looks like all letters are back in stock! Love.

2000s teen movie facts. Ha.

Wishing this Tibi dress was a tad more on sale. Love the coral.

So excited to check out Parson's Chicken & Fish this weekend. Dark & stormy slushie, please!

FRIDAYYYY!

Read & a workout.

I am always interested to hear about what workouts my friends are into these days. I feel like I go in phases - sometimes I just love running on the treadmill; I've been through a huge Exhale Core Fusion cardio and barre class kick; leading up to our wedding I was obsessed with The Bar Method. I have friends who love Pure Barre and The Dailey Method and others who swear by Core Power Yoga. I took my first Shred415 class last week and LOVED it. Could become obsessed. You sweat SO much.

Just curious who out there loves what workouts right now?

Also, sidenote, these are my two favorite workout tops right now: Athleta Go Time Tank and Athleta Ahimsa Top. So comf!

Another yummy salmon dinner! Rubbed the salmon with chile powder and made an avocado grapefruit salsa (using this recipe).


{Avocado, red onion, cilantro, grapefruit, jalapeno, lime juice, salt and pepper.}






Perfect weeknight dinner.

APPARENTLY everyone has already seen this, but if you haven't, it's tooooo good to miss.

Has anyone read The Hot Zone? It was on my summer reading list in high school and I sort of want to re-read it now amid the Ebola outbreak... 

This looks like an easy and delish weeknight dinner. Adding it to my to-cook list.

I am reading This is Where I Leave You and love love LOVE it. Really excited about the movie. (If you need a new summer read, check out my list!)

Happy Fri!
