Zucchini Side Salad

Sometimes the most basic ingredients can come together to create something great.

Start by peeling a zucchini or two, cut each lengthwise, and then slice them as thin as you can. The thinner the better. Transfer the zucchini slices to a bowl and then drizzle with olive oil, add some lemon juice, sea salt and pepper to taste.

You can stop here and it will be delicious, or you can also sprinkle on some fat-free feta crumbles. So simple, yet so delicious.

Uruguayan Chivito

{home-made chivito}

It must have been the post-wedding nostalgia, but for the entire month of December our home cooking seemed heavily influenced by our trip.

The Chivito is a Uruguayan classic. It is a sandwich typically loaded with a thin slice of grilled beef, a fried egg, ham, cheese, bacon (or bacon bits in this case), lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and the sauce of your choice -or the works: mustard, ketchup, mayo.   Preparing it at home was definitely a team effort. 

{here we experimented on whole wheat bread – yum!}

Musical Mondays

Welcome to Musical Mondays. Kicking off today, I’ll be posting a few of my favorite songs each week – some old, some new.

Since Mondays are always a little tough, I’m hoping this will help us ease into the week. You may find a tune or two that you like.

Here are this week’s picks:

1. Architecture in Helsinki | Escapee

2. Young the Giant | Cough Syrup

3. Neutral Milk Hotel | In the Aeroplane over the Sea
