Warm Quinoa & Chickpea Salad.

fullsizeoutput_1821

Even though it’s almost always summer in south Florida, sometimes I crave big bowls of warm comfort food. ¬†And lately I’ve been feeling super fatigued – a few nights ago, Bryan said to me, “Mandy, you need to stop working so much.” And today when he left for work he said, “please do something fun today.”¬†

He’s right (shhhhhhh don’t tell him I said that).

Just Some Things I’m Lovin’ Lately.

Wowza. How is it already June 8th?

Time flies…

And speaking of time, it’s time again for another round up of things I’m lovin’ lately. ¬†Why? Because it’s been 3 months since my last one¬†¬†and because I’m feeling all sorts of love today. ¬†AND because I’m lovin’ uhhhh lot of things lately. ¬†AND¬†because I have been sick, busy and too tired to cook any extravagant meals, so if y’all want to hear from me, this is pretty much all I got right now. Capiche?

Oh, and…¬†

I kid. I kid. ¬†That’s all I got.

Oatmeal Homemade Dog Treats & Pictures from West Virginia

Hello. Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you already know that I was in West Virginia over the holiday¬†weekend, and then I was¬†hit by the plague as soon as we arrived home early Tuesday morning (early as in 1:00am) – not even joking…

Oh, and if you don’t follow me on Twitter and Facebook, what the heck¬†are ya waiting for?! ūüėČ Get. On. It.¬†

Anywaaaays, today is Day 3 of what I’ve deemed Mandy’s Solitary Confinement and the good news is, I am finally starting to feel like a human being again. ¬†The bad news is, it took 1.5 boxes of Kleenex, 1 bag of Ricola cough drops, 1 carton of Florida’s finest orange juice, 2 liters of Gatorade, a few Green Smoothies, lots of T.L.C. from Bryan (along with avoidance), and close to 40 hours of sleep to get there. ¬†Hey, I don’t fall often, but when I fall, I fall hard.¬†

Zucchini Cakes

Let me start with my good news!

No, I’m NOT pregnant…and no, I’m NOT getting married…

The good news is, with the help of Bryan and the girls at work, I have successfully completed my¬†Mayngo Mission. ¬†That’s right y’all, Mayngo Madness has finally subsided. ¬†Our tree has stopped producing fruit and we have managed to eat almost every mango from it – aside from the few that the squirrels got to first.

Darn rodents.
