The end of the week has been getting more and more exciting. Not only is the weekend here but I also receive a Pacific Northwest Fresh Box, so the unboxing has become something I really look forward too.

Moving into a new place, we are in the middle of adjusting budget-wise so I am working on eating more within what I already have instead of going out.

Today before work I actually cooked up some potatoes and added them to the cheese quesadilla I made, way better than I expected.

Last night I was so excited about kale (who am I?) that I pulled a few leaves out and went straight to making kale chips. Instead of popcorn, I figured I was winning and truly after cooking it up at 350 in the oven for only 10 minutes, it was the perfect snack.

My mix is included in the gallery but I know it's a popular idea so here are a few more flavors you could try

miso, soy sauce (or tamari), and canola or coconut oil

1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino Romano cheese 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted 

1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay 1/8 teaspoon cayenne Zest of 1 lemon

¼ cup raw almonds (or almond butter)
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp tamari
1 tsp raw honey
1-inch fresh ginger, grated
dash cayenne

½ lemon, juiced
1/2 red pepper
1/3 cup tahini or sesame seeds
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
Sea salt to taste
