Oh my goodness guys, I have SO much going on in my life right now! I wanted to share a few things with you that I have been working on. A few times now I have mentioned that I do custom invitations and announcements as a hobby. We I just finished the most gorgeous wedding programs EVER and got to see them displayed at the wedding service. How lucky am I?! Take a look at these beauties :)
Additionally, my little man is going back to school in just a few short days! He is going to be a KINDERGARTENER!! I have no idea how time has gone by so quickly! For his last day of summer camp we brought in yummy cupcakes – it was a blast to watch him decorate them :) I hope he grows up to love experimenting in the kitchen as much as I do!
And excitingly I was finally able to experiment in the kitchen! I have been making a lot of my old favorites lately because I just have not had time to actually cook. That has looked like a lot of salads and sautéed veggies with quinoa. Every bit delicious, just not much to share.
About a week ago I was really craving something soothing and hot. I surveyed my pantry for possible ingredients and came up with a can of cannellini beans, tomato sauce, garlic, nutritional yeast, and panko crumbs. Casserole began calling my name!
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 12 oz of tomato sauce
- 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup panko crumbs
- 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- Italian seasoning, to taste
Preheat oven to 425° and heat olive oil in deep saucepan. Add garlic and sauté for a few minutes. Add tomato sauce and white beans. Slowly add in spinach as it wilts. Cook until well combined, approximately 5 minutes.
Transfer to an oven safe dish. Top with panko crumbs, nutritional yeast, and italian seasoning. Heat uncovered for 20 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling. Remove from oven, let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
And now I leave you with one more thing. I am growing my hair out (again).. which look is better? Wavy or straight?
I promise I will stop being such a stranger! I miss you guys and your comments on here and Facebook!
