TGIF. Who is ready for the weekend??
Can we discuss how excited I am to have some new Reality TV. I was so over the Beverly Hills Housewives towards the end, I could barely watch it. I am happy the NYC girls are back and that they brought Bethenny back, I am always a fan of her. I guess Ramona finally ditched Mario for cheating and gotta say I am digging the new girl so far. Sonja always proves to be interesting and I love laid back Carol.
Southern Charm is a constant train wreck but I can’t stop watching it I always love to see the local spots where they film. I have to admit I love Whitney’s mom, she may be my favorite character. Always sitting in her caftans, having her butlers make her a martini- gotta love her.
This year Matt and I decided we wanted to do more of a real garden. We were going to build an upraised bed but one of his friends suggested The Earth Box. I just ordered 2 and I am going to plant our produce this weekend. He swears by the Earth box and says his produce grows really well. I will report back on our results.
So far we are going to plant: kale, arugula, swiss chard, squash, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower (should be interesting), habaneros, and herbs.
If you are looking for an easy and delicious side dish, you must try The Barefoot Contessa’s Roasted Broccoli with pine nuts.
You roast the broccoli with minced garlic. Then toss with pine nuts, fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The flavors are amazing. Sterling loves it too and he is picky, but when I made it this week he went back for seconds!
Frances is such a doll when she wakes up from her naps. I love walking in her room and seeing her sweet smile.
She is wearing her Rikshaw Pineapple dress. If you follow me on instagram (snoopnattynat) I will be running a giveaway to win this same dress and bloomer set next week.
Sterling started soccer back for the Spring and I have to say I am loving the practices and games.
Matt decided to help coach this year and it warms my heart to see the two on the field together.
I am so excited my favorite Equipment shorts are back out in a fun floral print. I bought the leopard version last year and wore them all the time. They zip in the back and have no pockets so they fit really well and are flattering.
I recently ordered The Sprouted Kitchen new cookbook and it is just awesome. Beautiful photographs and recipes. If you need a new cookbook check this one out. Every single recipe looks amazing. I have already made two recipes and they both were great.
This kale slaw with soaked golden raisins and pine nuts was simply incredible.
Have a great weekend!
