Well Hi

Wow, almost two months since I’ve been on here! My apologies! Lots has gone on… let’s see where to start:

Quincy came home! And then left… and then came home again!

We celebrated Easter in LA.

And saw Willie Nelson live.

We found out we are moving to DC… in a few weeks!

And so we bought another house! (House #3 for the Bahlers will take us to Alexandria. We are SO excited to be in a big city again!)

In anticipation of our move, we drove my car from Los Angeles to Nashville. It took 4 days, and Carl was a trooper!

And finally, we three are living under one roof again!

More to come now that I am settled and back in TN 🙂

And it is only $100. Everlane is the BEST. Their classic crew neck cashmere sweater is my all time favorite sweater. I seriously wear one every single day during the fall/winter. Great quality, great price point, great selection of colors. I promise you will not be disappointed. I have it in four different colors in the crew neck and three in the v-neck. Enjoy.

Coconut Pancakes

I was SO lucky these past few weeks because I got to spend them with Q! He had a little break from work, and I took some vacation days so that we could spend time with each other before Q heads out for more training. I found my love of the kitchen again, and remembered how much I LOVE cooking for another person (amazing how cooking for two is SO much better than cooking for one!). For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to try a new recipe, so I made these Coconut Pancakes. It made a bunch (I actually cut this recipe in half since it was two of us and there was still a ton left over!). I put them in a freezer ziploc bag and freeze them for the future. They were delicious and really not that much work, who knew? Enjoy!

Easy Stovetop Spanish Rice

The other night I wanted to make a fun Mexican-themed dinner. Instead of doing my usual brown rice on the side, I decided to try and make some Spanish rice. This recipe is easy, delicious and tastes super authentic. I put it on the stovetop the same time I made my fajita chicken (recipe to come) and it was a delicious meal.

A few hints: this makes a LOT of rice (like 4 cups), which you can easily portion out and freeze or make for a small crowd. Also, I used brown basmati rice because that’s what I had. Feel free to play around with what type of rice you want to use, just be mindful of liquid to rice ratio and cooking time.
