Tofu, Walgreens Photo Center Fun, & VEGAS!

Morning! One of my favorite things about going out to eat is bringing home leftovers — I know some people hate leftovers, but I love them — especially when reinventing them into something new.

So guess what? I finally COOKED something on Saturday! Introducing: Mediterranean Pasta Salad. Simple and delicious. Between all the travel in August and the crazy heat during the rest of the summer, I either haven’t had the opportunity to cook or have just been feeling very unmotivated to turn on the stove for anything more than scrambled Continue Reading …
