Whew... what a busy week it's been! And it's only Wednesday. Not much to post today, except for a few Instagram snapshots...

A. and I have been enjoying our evening walks around the neighborhood
inspired by this friend, who wrote about panini in a recent blog post

Sun-dried tomato and olive pesto, feta, and spinach panino - made in a makeshift "panini maker" using my grill pan and a heavy cast-iron skillet on top to press the sandwich.  Not bad!

I can do animal print in very small doses.

Decided to try the work-at-home trick of getting (somewhat) dressed up to hopefully work more productively at home. Even if it just meant jeans, a cowl-neck sweater, and flats.
Except I ended up taking a quick trip to my happy place to pick up a few things I've been eyeing. I finally upgraded my bakeware (commercial-grade bakeware on sale - a great deal for how much I bake). No more cheap warping cookie sheets for me!
But I digress. Yes, I worked too...

weeknight dinner: kale and white bean soup
The above soup is typically in my regular soup rotation - beans/chickpeas with lots of veggies.
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and shards of parmigiano-reggiano cheese right before serving/eating make this humble soup even more delicious.

Because weeknight dinners should be savored too, right?

Thanks Anne! Yes, I love the evening walk photo too! I get the "warm fuzzies" when I see it... but maybe it's because it reminds me of my walks with A. ;-)

Yup - animal print in small doses ;-) I limit it to shoes and (thin) belts. :) I had these giraffe print (I know, seriously) ballet flats some years ago that I OUTGREW and I was so sad! I guess our feet do get bigger after a while?? I don't grow taller but my feet grow bigger. Go figure :)

The soup is incredibly simple - I should post the recipe!
