Sending happy vibes for a better day. Maybe some green-grape Chardonnay tonight if needed? :)

I’d have to go with avocados, but I like most green things.

I pinned that quinoa recipe – thanks for sharing!

I don’t think I’ve ever steamed asparagus – I always roast or saute it. I will have to try that out. Roasting makes me SO impatient. :)

i usually prefer to roast almost any veggie, but steaming takes almost no time, which is what i was going for last week. :)
