Strawberry-Banana Smoothie


Last night was another repeat dinner of my taco recipe (it's a fan favorite and super easy so it's heavily in the rotation). So, instead I thought I'd share my favorite breakfast smoothie recipe, which I am drinking as we speak!

In a blender: 
  • Take a couple handfuls of strawberries, cut off the tops and chop them into large pieces (probably about a cup or cup and a half)
  • Cut up one banana (this is great for overripe ones) 
  • Add 2 cups of vanilla yogurt (I use low fat or no fat...not a fan of whole milk yogurt, and you could use Greek yogurt if you like) 
  • Throw in a couple ice cubes--I don't know why but ice cubes help the texture. 
Blend all togther, and voila! Healthy easy breakfast that's surprisingly filling!

Pasta with Oil & Spices

So rather than go to the store yesterday after work for some fancy-pants ingredients needed for a new dish, I went for a run instead.  There will be no running today in this rain, so new dish will be tonight.  Last night I made Rhys's favorite pasta, which I've shared here before but it's worth revisiting. And, there's a picture this time!  Cook 1 lb of mostaccioli (this will feed an army, so cut in half if you're not feeding, well, an army). Once the pasta is cooked and drained, return it to the pot and add 1/4 cup of EVOO. Add a little more if all the pasta isn't nicely covered with oil.  Add a lot of oregano, about 2 tbsp but adjust to taste. Add black pepper, about 1 tbsp.  Top with crushed red pepper to taste, depending how spicy you like it. And that's it!
