I cannot thank you all enough for your kind words regarding my Nana. It was great to be with her this weekend. She motivates me and inspires me to be a better person! It was a bittersweet feeling coming back to Austin.
My Nana and my Mom! I just love these women!
My hubs ( the hubs) has been another source of motivation. He’s determination, strength, humility, and will power motivate me to be a better wife. Well, most of the time. haha!
He trained on the trainer this weekend in Dallas and my dad put a Guinness in front of him for more MOTIVATION. Classic!
And lastly, You all motivate me. Ya, sorry to be all mushy. I think I’m high on emotions right now. You motivate to live in balance, be myself, and embrace my passion for cooking. And for that CHEERS to you! I leave you with a recipe. Yes, a recipe. I’ve never partaken in Meatless Monday and tonight I decided to celebrate that blogger trend. The hubs was even excited for it!
Mac n’ Chickpea Cheese
Gluten Free Pasta (macaroni or rotini)
Daiya shredded cheese (1/2 cup)
1 can chick peas
1 jar pimentos
garlic- 1 to 2 tsp.
sea salt and black pepper- to taste
olive oil or other oil of choice (2 tbsp.)
almond milk (unsweetened)- 1/4 to 1/2 cup
First, drain the chicken peas and dry them off. Coat them in 1 tbsp. oil and curry powder. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 400F for about 15 minutes or until gold brown. Set aside. Then cook pasta according to the directions. Strain the water and add it the milk, cheese, oil, and seasoning. Stir on low until cheese starts to melt. Once its starts to melt, add in your chick peas and pimentos until all the cheese is melted and coated onto the pasta and chick peas. Then……EAT and ENJOY in GOOD company. Goes best with family and friends!
