Family, Food, and Fitness

How do you like the new blog design?

I had started a food blog but then I decided that it was too much work to keep up a separate food blog apart from this blog so I decided to roll them both into one blog that will include family, food, and fitness! I hope you don't mind! :)

Hopefully the updated tabs at the top will be helpful for finding recipes and such too!

Everyday I am so amazed by how quickly Kenley's brain picks up on the things around her. She isn't even two and a half and yet she is already a pro at working my iPhone. She knows which apps are the games for her and can go back and forth between them. Her favorite right now is "the elephant game" aka Tiny Ear.

I guess she also enjoys taking pictures of her elephant, which she named June, because when I plugged my phone in today I noticed about 12 pictures of June. :)
This is the classic tired Kenley look... Big sleepy eyes and rubbing her nose with her blanket :)


Onto the food...

Last nights dinner was so great! Sundays meals weren't very full of veggies so I tried to make up for it with Monday's dinner.
Roasted asparagus topped with goat gouda, mashed potatoes and carrots, and an amazing spinach salad.

I always know that the meal is good if Brian asks for seconds! I never expected him to ask for seconds of a spinach salad! It's so good that we were fighting over the last bits!
Amazing Spinach Salad
  • 1 bag of baby spinach
  • 1/2 bag of Trader Joe's rosemary pecans and cranberries
  • 1/2 container of Trader Joe's crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 red onion, sliced and lightly sauteed in a bit of coconut oil
  • Dressed with OhSheGlows Cranberry Orange Vinaigrette
Toss all ingredients together and serve!

Seriously try it! Even if you think that you don't like spinach, try it! You are probably wrong about not liking spinach. :)

As for the fitness section, I think that I am going to start using that section to post my proposed workout plan for each week. I think it will be a good way to keep goals for myself and track the progress that I make. *I think* that Brian might even pop by for a few fitness posts! We will see!

Have a great Tuesday evening!

I just realized that the link you have for my blog is the old link, I was like why does it say I haven't updated in 4 months ha.
