Life lately has mostly consisted of the gym, my bed, and my desk at work. Since the start of April, everything has kind of been a blur. I’ve been trying hard to keep my weekend my own, but it’s hasn’t been all that easy. Thankfully, my workouts haven’t suffered (much) – this is when I really get to focus on myself and my health.
Two of the things that I took time to enjoy this weekend…
An afternoon parfait – apple, banana, blackberries, strawberries, plain Greek yogurt, homemade granola, cinnamon and a little honey. Delicious.
Taking time to write notes to friends and family (by hand) while sitting on a pier on the East River. (I’m still using the address spreadsheet I created when Woody and I were engaged 5 years ago! I can be really lazy sometimes!)
Okay, I could really use your help. Since I’ve been spending a lot of late nights at the office I’ve been really slacking on my kitchen duties lately and by the time the weekend comes around, I just turn to my old standbys when it comes to dinner. The other day while working at a conference, the lunch featured an amazing risotto and it inspired me to try it for myself. The problem is, I have no idea how to do it. If you have an easy recipe for risotto, that doesn’t require mushrooms (one thing I will not eat), will you send me the recipe? Either leave a link in the comments, tag me in a pin on Pinterest or send me an email at lmhansen (at) hotmail.com. Thanks in advance!
