White Chicken Chili

Hi everyone!!! I hope you all had a lovely week. I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but it has gotten chilly here in DC!!!! The chilly weather reminded of a recipe I made last year to share with you all. Unfortunately, I made it right when my 1L life got crazy and I never got around to posting it! So, I have it to share with you today!!

Weekend Snapshots October 18-20, 2013

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend! I am finally going back to my externship today, yay!! Before I head back though, I want to tell you all about my weekend!

On Friday, I met up with my mom and some of her friends for dinner at Circa in Clarendon. We decided to split a bunch of small plates consisting of: calamari, a cheese board, lobster ravioli, filet sliders, and a wild mushroom flatbread. I think the wild mushroom flatbread was my favorite! I didn’t take any pictures because it was super dark in the restaurant.

After dinner, we walked over to RiRa and listened to an awesome band named Slamm. I was having so much fun listening to the band that I recruited some friends to come join me at the bar so they could enjoy the awesomeness. If you get a chance to check out Slamm you definitely should. They mix up the lead singer depending on what type of song they are singing.

Maple Roasted Carrots

Hi everyone!! I hope you all are well. I have a new and easy recipe for you today! I developed this recipe while suffering from cabin fever during the shutdown (which is now over – woohoo!!!). I have a minor (okay, major) sweet tooth and it calls out to me when I work from home. I can silence my sweet tooth when I only work from home once a week. However, it started to become a problem when I was working at home on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! To curb this I created an awesome new side dish, which I had for lunch on Monday.

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Chris and I had a nice and rainy weekend here in DC. The sun is finally supposed to peak out this afternoon and I am so excited! I don’t think we’ve seen the sun since last Monday!

After a rainy Friday, I decided to make some chili for Chris and I to enjoy at home.

Green Smoothie

Hi everyone and happy Friday!

I have been feeling a little under-the-weather this week and I wasn’t planning to post today. However, after a green-pick-me-up smoothie I am feeling slightly better and I decided to share my secret weapon! I’m not sure if it is just the constant rain that has me down or if it is related to the flu shot I had earlier this week, but I’m hoping that this smoothie keeps me going through the rest of the afternoon!
