Life lately

I’m really not good at this whole blogging thing eh?!

Oh well, I guess this will just be somewhere I occasionally come to dump recipes and life tidbits.

So, life lately- it’s been pretty great, busy busy with work, gorgeous weather, tons of hiking, lots of gardening, BBQing, softball, patio drinks, listening to lots of great music, lots of family time and finally finishing up my first big tattoo… can’t complain!

There you have it- life lately. Busy busy but oh so great!!

Grilled romaine (serves 2)

1 head of romaine

1 tbsp coconut oil (or avocado oil)

salt and pepper

cut romain in half, brush well with oil. Place on a medium high grill and grill until wilted and charred.

Sprinkle lots of salt and pepper and enjoy! I love it with a little balsamic vinaigrette or a homemade caesar dressing!
