Opposites (Attract)

Today's post isn't so much about relationships, but rather opposites in food enjoyment. The other day as I was shopping at our Fred Meyer (Krogers in other parts of the country), I passed by this garlic bread that my mom used to buy on occasion to go with spaghetti dinners. 

I thought "I would almost never buy that now, but I remember how good it tasted." I also knew how much the manfriend would appreciate this stuff. 

A week or so later, I picked up a loaf to go with our pasta and yep, it still tastes the same! French bread slathered in butter with lots of garlic flavoring and popped in the oven for 10-15 minutes...yum. 

Don't mind Jonah Bell passed out in the background.

Just a little PSA that even if you know it's not health food, it's okay to indulge occasionally.

And in the opposite corner, I present to you my new favorite mixture of greens.


Typically, I'm a spinach all the way girl, but I've been enjoying this mix of power greens, including spinach, mizuna, chard and kale. Proof that branching out once in a while can't hurt.

And finally, we've been having a few days of spring like weather around these parts! Shorts weather, I kind of love you. 


As much as I love bundling up after a cold, wet run, there is something refreshing about feeling the sun on your skin during a run. Bring on the Vitamin D!

In other news, Anatomy & Physiology I is almost over! Yesterday we dissected a rat. Not going to lie, it was not easy. I had trouble just watching the video prior to doing the hands on piece. Luckily, we were able to do it in partners.

Do you have any opposite food favorites right now? How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

My mom made the best garlic bread when we were growing up! She'd slice up a french roll and put lots of butter and garlic salt on it. Yum.

I love the combination of sweet and salty, my current fave being mixed nuts and craisins.

I bought that same garlic bread a couple of weeks ago. I hadn't bought it for years. Yes, it was amazing!

It finally sorta feels like spring around here, but I don't want to jinx anything. :-)

Eric and I buy those giant bags of garlic bread from time to time. They are so freaking good! We love eating it with mussels!
I am not a sweets person but have been craving them lately for some reason. So I have been having nice, healthy salads for lunch and then eating a bunch of candy. NOT the best choice, but I am halfway there!
