Spinach and Sqaush

I have doing a lot of fashion posts on the blog, so I decided I would switch it up with a food post. Butternut squash has been one of my favorite vegetables this winter. I have loved experimenting with it in different dishes, and this dish I made for dinner last night was one of them. The original recipe calls for pumpkin, but I decided to switch it out for butternut squash. It also calls for a lot more butter than the healthy amount, so I put about a fourth of what was called for (still an unhealthy amount). Here is the finished product!DSC_0632

Finished it off with some freshly grated parmesan!

From the South to the North

I recently  was able to travel to two different states over the past couple of weekends, both on separate sides of the country. I was able to visit my best friend in Athens, Georgia, and then able to visit Boston, Massachusetts.  Going from the deep south to northern New England was amazing getting to experience the different types of people, places, and food that each state had to offer.

First stop was Athens, Georgia:

The land where the tea is almost as sweet as the southern beaus. If I ever went to school down south it probably would have been University of Georgia. I fell in love with the old southern charm and  atmosphere  along with the heartwarming people of Athens! Its safe to say that I did not want to leave, and my weekend visit was way too short!

I loved the “southern style” of some of the girls down south with the monograms, pearls, and bows (three of my personal favorites). The style of the southern gentlemen wasn’t too shabby either with their button downs and chino pants. I especially loved the  game day attire, which is where I spotted these  adorable pants:

And I was loving all the dresses and cowboy boots!

I had to take part in all the festivities of course, I even learnt some of the chants.

I loved the BBQ and southern comfort food that they had in downtown Athens.

I had to finish the trip off with a picture with the official dawg 🙂

Overall my trip to Georgia was great and I can’t wait to visit again!

Second stop was Boston, Massachusetts:

My visit to Boston was very short and I wasn’t able to enjoy it all too much because I got sick towards the end of the trip. Although I do visit Boston a lot so I have seen a lot of the sights and been shopping on Newbury a couple of times. Here are some pictures from my sunny weekend in Boston (the weather was so beautiful for the weekend I visited).

A picture of the Prudential building and the fountains in front of it is a must see when visiting.

Of course we had to stop and take a picture in front of the fountains (you can see a slight rainbow behind us)!

Finished off the trip with a MUST HAVE! Of course it was georgetown cupcakes, my favorite cupcake ever!

Skip the Thai Takeout!

Today I found a great recipe for a delicious thai red coconut curry that will make you skip your thai takeout! I tweaked the recipe a little bit and added some broccoli, water chestnuts, carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers and snap peas.  I was cooking for a vegetarian crowd so I swapped the chicken out for some extra firm tofu which still tasted awesome. Instead of the recommended pasta I decided to serve this with some asian sticky rice. Try it out and let me know how you liked this recipe!

South of the Border

Tonight I decided that for dinner I was going to make some mexican food! Yummmm, I have always had a love for mexican food, and so  I decided to make Mexican Lasagna. I love cooking this type of food because I find that the ingredients are always so colorful. The visual asthetic and aroma of the vegetables are enough to make my tastebuds water. Here is a picture of the end product:

The layers of the lasagna consisted of cheese, hot sauce, crushed tomatoes, beans, corn, cilantro, chives, and some spices. This dish was a huge hit, and I recommend it to anyone that loves mexican food!
