Mornin’ folks! Hope everyone is enjoying the fact that the week is already (basically) 1/2 over! Last night I whipped up a quick meal using the einkorn pasta sample that we received at the Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference I attended in Boulder.
According to the people at Jovial Foods, the makers of the pasta we received, Einkorn is an “ancient grain” that has far higher nutrition stats than the typical whole wheat durum pasta popularly consumed. Einkorn even have naturally-occuring B-vitamins, something that is usually only found from animal sources!
The einkorn definitely takes longer than white or even regular wheat pasta to cook. Plus, you’ve probably heard me say that I like to overcook my whole wheat pasta to give it a closer consistency to the white stuff, so that happened too. While that was simmering away, I whipped a high-protein sauce to go along with it:
TJ’s mushroom spaghetti sauce, ground turkey breast, peas, edamame, corn, and kale!
This was one of my finest pantry/freezer emptying dishes. Toss it all in, see what comes out, right? And what came out was pretty tasty.
And pretty pretty, too! 🙂 The rest of my night was spent configuring this little dohicky:
My new external hard drive! It’s so tiny, I still can’t really believe it. An entire terrabyte of space in the palm of my hand — literally! I moved ALL of my pictures from my ‘pooter onto this little guy because my poor dying MacBook was about 3 gigs away from being completely filled to the brim with high resolution gloriousness.
Congratulations, Dan! (For the sake of not being totally sketch-tastic, I should let you know that Dan happens to be my brother-in-law, but I *SWEAR* that this was a totally random pick – the screenshot above is proof!)
Sorry to those of you who didn’t win, but blame it on the plug-in. 😉 Hopefully there will be some more fun giveaways coming up in the near future, so fret not. You day may yet come! And as long as you’re not totally ticked off from not winning, I still could use your help.
The amazing Bailey Doehler has been working with me to design a new logo for this here blog. Bailey helped Anne with her logo and header, and after seeing her work I snatched her up. I found out that we have a lot in common, and she has a weight loss blog as well! She has been super patient with my indecision and waffley-ness, so now I’m counting on that patience while I ask for your help. I’m totally stuck on being able to choose a font style and would LOVE your input!
Cast your vote for logo option 1, 2, or 3! And if you have any other comments, ideas, or whatever, I’d love to hear them too! My thoughts are to replace the current header with some version of this logo plus a few photos that represent my blog, oh, just a little bit better than Daxter’s feet and a dog food container. 😉
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
