Sunday Soul Food

Well I'd call this a nice week. My plants are growing, my classes are more than half-over, and I've gotten to spend some good quality time with my favorite fella' {Scotty}. Highlights from the week:

My mail from the lovely and talented Emilie of Scarborough Food Fair arrived! Who the heck doesn't love getting snail mail that isn't bills or advertisements? I won a My Politic CD, and let me tell you folks, I am loving it. I had no idea "giveaways" were so big in blog land... But I'm sure glad they are! Also, my mom made me some super-yummy black bean salad on fajita night. She also gave me some gorgeous china that used to be hers & my dad's. I make it a rule to basically never turn down free stuff, ha. Jessica helped me host a garage sale, where we found these old "pok-e-balls" from a high school pranking streak. And today, Scotty and I went to the driving range! I'm awful, but boyfriend has got some skills... ;)

The only downside to this week is that summery weather means wearing far less layers, which in turn means you are reminded of all the yummy comfort foods you indulged in all winter long! All this means is that I've gotta eat lighter meals, cut calories, and hit the friggin' gym! Woo! So, here and now, I'm going to pick and chose some recipes I've been dying to try and commit {loosely} to making them this week. Some of them {most of them} are rather indulgent in themselves, so I'll need to lighten them up... But that's a task I can handle. Here we go:

Toasted Mediterranean Sandwich by Simply Scratch

Blueberry Coffee Cake in a Mug by Steph's Bite by Bite

Bangin' Grilled Shrimp Skewers by Skinnytaste

Roasted Chili Lime Chickpeas by Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme

Homemade Peanut Butter by Simply Scratch

Other things I want to make {from cookbooks or you know, my head}:
Rolls using fresh herbs
Trail Mix
Low-Cal Chocolate Cupcakes
Spaghetti Squash with Chunky Tomato Sauce

Yum yum yum... We'll see how this plan goes, and be sure to check out the blogs I've linked to. They're all friggin' fabulous, I swear!
