Tomato Salad – Stuffed Avocados

Hi y’all!  I hope you had a nice weekend and your Tuesday is off to a good start.

What has everyone been up to?  I’ve been doing a lot of pet sitting – this time of year tends to get busy for that!  I also wrapped up my last week doing sea turtle surveys for the season.  It was a bittersweet ending for me because the last month of surveys consisted of zero new nests and zero hatchlings – they were all washed out by Irma.  Fortunately, the beaches are finally starting to look normal again, and we had a very successful season, regardless of how it ended.

Veggie Rice Bowl.

One of my favorite things to do is to find delicious recipes and tweak them.  I tweak them because: 1- I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand or 2- I don’t like all of the ingredients in the original recipe.

I found today’s recipe on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen  and knew I had to try it, unfortunately I didn’t have all of the ingredients so…

Orange-Spice Pumpkin Waffles. Vegan. Gluten-Free.

Yesterday I made Homemade Pumpkin and Oatmeal Dog Treats for the pups…

Don’t they look excited?  They loved them! 

The recipe I used made a huge batch of treats and I didn’t want to make that many because I have little pups, so I only made half, leaving me with a lot of leftover pumpkin.

Costa Rica. The Final Chapter.

 

Hello! And happy Thursday y’all.  This is my third and final Costa Rica post then it’s back to recipes…I promise!  I have to be honest, I haven’t been cooking as much with Bryan gone.  I’ve been making salads and a few frozen Amy’s meals (my fav).

Don’t judge me.

As I mentioned in the last post, our next and final stop was San Gerardo de Dota –  a small town huddled up against the Talamanca Mountain Range that is a haven for birdwatchers and hikers – precisely why Bryan chose for it to be our final destination.   There was one specific bird we were on the lookout for: the Quetzal, considered to be one of the most beautiful birds in the world…

Costa Rica Part II.

fullsizeoutput_18c3

After bidding farewell to Drake Bay, we took a boat, then a bus to Uvita. It was hot and I was miserable.  But I was still on cloud 9 thinking about how excited I was to be engaged to such an incredible man.

The hotel we planned on staying at was closed, but we ended up finding a very eco-friendly and quant hippie hostel which was inundated with young, hippie (American) travelers.  I fit right in. 🙂

Costa Rica Part I

I finally got most of the pictures from our trip to Costa Rica downloaded on my computer – after about an hour on the phone with Apple support (insert deep sigh here).

I’ve never been a very “technological person,” but I know how to upload photos from my camera or my iPhone, but something on my phone got switched so everything was going to iCloud.  Yes, I know it’s 2017 and iCloud has been a thing for awhile now, but I’m old school and I love the idea of plugging my phone into my computer and BAM, there are all the photos.

When I came home from Costa Rica and plugged my phone in to my computer…

NO BAM. And NO photos.
