A Few Things I've learned this week...

1. 30th birthdays are fabulously fun. I may or may not have sung a duet with my husband of "we built this city" at chineese restaurant karaoke. I may or may not be tone deaf. {There may or may not be evidence on FB if you're a friend.}

2. Faith is a funny thing & you just have to trust the path that is laid out for you. While it might not be exactly what you want at this time it is what He wants, you just have to keep your chin up and believe. I've been doing quite a bit of prayer & reflection during this first (almost) full week of Lent, and am feeling a great deal better.

3. The Pioneer Woman really is genius in the kitchen. I added spinach & chopped onion to her Mac & Cheese & it was amazingly comforting, even made with whole wheat pasta & skim milk.

4. Homemade Marshmallows are potentially my favorite treat.

5. They're even better when sandwiched in a whoopie pie.

6. I am on a hunt for the perfect small lamp to sit atop my bookcase and I can't seem to find the one. Saw this one at PB, what do you think?
7. If allergies are making you sneezy like me & you need a little heat try this: Gingered Stir-Fry with Shrimp & Snow Peas. Next time I'm going to stir in a Tablespoon of honey.

8. This guy is jazzed about Daylight Savings Time.

I love the lamp. The bottom looks almost like it was made out of a mason jar, which gives it a unique flair. Also I really enjoy the idea of incorporating vegetables into mac and cheese to make it a little healthier. I'll definitely have to give that a try.

Just found your blog...and thank goodness! That Mac n Cheese looks divine!

That mac & cheese looks delish! I'm trying The Hugry Girl's version tonight. Somehow I can't imagine it will taste as good as your version/PW's version.

I'm going to earmark this and try it next :)

the mac & cheese looks scrumptious! i am tempted to make it tonight!

it's funny how much better homemade marshmallows are than the fake ones. i could eat dozens without batting an eye!

The ginger stir fry sounds amazing! I found a caffeine free ginger tea that worked pretty well last allergy season, but a little extra ginger never hurt - thanks for the recipe.

I LOVE that you may or may not have sang that song - that is one of my favorite "old" songs! Thirty will be wonderful!

Pasta looks so so yum, as does the stir fry!

Love that lamp from PB- I'm looking for one similar. But I can't stand to pay that price! Let me know if you find a copycat.
