Asian Chicken Noodle Soup

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday! Quick post today, we’re heading down to Nashville to ring in the New Year and I’m ridiculously excited to actually be going somewhere for vacation.  As part of cutting our budget back to save more for a house, trips were definitely cut from our list of things we could do.  So being able ...

Curried Pork and Broccoli with Mango Chutney

I’m baaaaaaacccccckkkkkkk! I took an unintentional break from the blogosphere due to the general craziness of life i.e. stepping up into some new responsibilities at work as well as dealing with the last two weeks of the spring quarter of classes. I’m happy to announce that I’m down to only 7 weeks before I’ll be the proud owner of an ... Read More »
