15 Minute Meal

well, hello again! it has been a while... our recent move has completely consumed my life (and continues to do so). between the packing, unpacking, organizing, etc. we haven't had much time for anything else. there have been a lot of diningin orders, carry out from some new neighborhood spots and well... not much cooking!

of course, our first priority was to get our kitchen setup. there are still boxes everywhere, but we could cook a ten course meal if we really wanted to! the only thing holding us back...  finding the energy to do much more than break open the cereal or order in.

in an effort to feel normal again, we decided to ease off the move-in pressure and get back into somewhat of a routine. starting with reform tuesday night (and xoco for dinner - best!). last night... we made our first dinner in our new place. as mentioned earlier, energy levels are low... so 15 minute meal it was! super simple to throw together, healthy and not much to it... throw the following ingredients in a bowl, chop it up and add olive oil (3 parts), balsamic (1 part), salt & pepper... and voila! dinner in no time. cheers!

lettuce, tomato, red onion, kalamata olives, serrano pepper (remove seeds/ribs)



cheese plate, just because. whatever assortment we have in the fridge 

fruit for dessert

ps. if you find yourself making salads as often as i do, especially in the summer, here are two must-haves for the kitchen: salad spinner and salad chopper & bowl.
