Sunday Supper: Cacio e Pepe with Brussels

main-recipe

I am very much into simplicity & quality in foods, so a perfectly-done cacio e pepe is one of my very favorite pasta dishes.  This recipe takes it to the next level by adding delicious sauteed brussels sprouts.  It is soooo yummy & super easy.  Enjoy!

Sunday Supper

Last night’s Sunday Supper recipe (courtesy of Refinery 29) was delicious!  I added cotija.

Crispy Kale and Avocado Taco
(Adapted from a recipe seen on What’s Cooking Good Looking)

Ingredients 
1 Hass avocado
1 bunch Russian kale
1 flour tortilla
1 Eureka lemon
1 tbsp grapeseed oil 
1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes

Cut the avocado into 1/4 inch cubes. Wash the kale, remove the spines, and chop.

Heat the grapeseed oil in a pan. After a minute, add chopped kale to the pan, and stir occasionally.

Place the flour tortilla in a separate nonstick pan over medium heat. Flip it over when the bottom starts to brown.

Once golden brown, place tortilla on a plate. Wait until the kale starts to crisp, and then squeeze half of the lemon over it. Remove the pan from the stove, and pile the crunchy kale into the tortilla.

Add the chopped avocado and crushed chili flakes.

'This Is Water' by David Foster Wallace, a film based on his 2005 Kenyon College commencement speech.

Choose to be conscious.  

“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.”  DFW

Lazy Sunday reading.  So happy to see one of my fashion favorites, Kerry Washington, on the cover of Elle!  I spotted it in line at the grocery & purchased immediately.

Skinny Mini

I’m not generally a Gap girl.  My style is seldom described in the realm of perky or preppy.  Cardigans (except the baggy 90s grunge kind) bum me out.  But every once in awhile, a girl needs a comfy staple!  The Gap Skinny Mini Skimmer doesn’t look like much, but the fit is flattering & it can be styled a million ways.  Because even Sunday errands deserve some love.  (Plus I nabbed mine during an in-store sale for only $35!)  Right now you can use code ‘GAP35’ for 35% off your purchase.  If you really want to get on the prep wagon, pair it with a fun color-block striped tank.
