Up To Date

It has been a busy, crazy week – and I have had lots of drama with technology! I believe I have it under control now – but I wanted to share with everyone what has been going on.

Since I updated my blog on Monday, it has come to my attention that my posts from the past week were not all going through to all my old feeds. I believe the issue is now fixed, so I wanted to give a little post sharing with you my week!

If you would like to update your feed to receive And Her Little Dog Too posts (and honestly, why wouldn’t you?) :)

Anywho, back to my week: This past Sunday I celebrated my 27th birthday and treated myself to a birthday pedicure with my new favorite polish – Wife Goes on.

I finally made the jump from having And Her Little Dog Too on Blogger and switched over to self hosted – (the cause for much of my excitement and drama this week!)

The most exciting posts of the week (to me) have been when I started recapping my incredible honeymoon. We started off  with Day 1 in Istanbul, Turkey, where Charles and I had a day to explore the city.

I have been breaking the trip down by city and landmarks – so far I have shared our visit to the Blue Mosque.

Healthy Kale & Quinoa

The other day I tested out a new lunch spot in Haddonfield, NJ – Apron. I enjoyed their healthy kale & quinoa seasonal specialty salad and was inspired to recreate it at home!

I decided to make a single serving for myself just to see how everything worked out. I started out with some gloriously fresh kale. I only used about one leaf – washed it and then cut it up into tiny bites

Next up I prepared the quinoa

I love this stuff – but cooking it always intimidates me a bit!

Luckily, this time I had success! I used less than 1/2 the water to quinoa ratio for about 10-12 minutes and it came out perfectly. I just had to keep and eye on it and stir it a lot!

While the quinoa cooked I toasted some almonds.

As everything was prepared I combined everything into a bowl and drizzled a bit of Garlic Gold vinaigrette on top.  Love this stuff!

Along with a few spoonfuls of feta and a handful of craisins – this salad is now ready to go!

Seriously, isn’t she a beauty?

It’s just amazing how something so simple could turn into something so tasty!

I had a few glorious bites of this salad and then put it back in the refrigerator to chill. It was even better, which I didn’t think was possible!

This salad is one of the best things I have made in a while!

I already know it’s going to be a summer favorite in my world!

Do  you have a favorite summer salad?
