We are obsessed with PLL. They've been watching it way before me, but they got me interested in it.
When I decided to watch it I watched all the past episodes to catch up the started back with them when this past season started.
I have also read books 1-9. I'm currently on 10. Right now there are 11 total. The books are really good! The show is awesome too! I really like suspenseful movies, shows, and books. I like stuff that keeps me guessing and surprised!! This series is great for that. I have yet to lose my interest in it. I tend to lose interest easily in tv shows.
So the show has been on this random break. And it came back on for a Halloween episode. Then it will start back up in January.
For our girls' night I cooked Tone It up Savory Fall Stew and Karena's Kale salad. I posted the recipes below (both recipes from the tone it up website) and some random pics! I was really impressed by both of these recipes. They were awesome! I ate the soup every day for the rest of last week. And I still ended up throwing some away it was supper easy to make too.
Tone It Up Savory Fall Stew
1 Cup Dry Lentils
3/4 Cup Dry Quinoa
1 cup Water
2 Quarts Vegetable Broth
2 cups Mushrooms, sliced
1 cup Carrots, sliced
1 yellow Onion, diced
1 Tbs. Black Pepper
1 Tbs. Basil
2 cloves Garlic
2 tsp. Thyme
Mix ingredients together in crock pot and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
Karena's Kale Salad- I cut this recipe in half
- 5-6 cups kale, washed and cut with kitchen scissors into thin strips.
- 1/2 cup dried unsweetened cranberries.
- 1/2 cup pine nuts.(I use almonds)
- 1/2 cup diced red onions.
- 1/2 cup cherry red tomatoes
- 1/3 cup feta cheese. We suggest low-fat or non-fat.
- juice of one lemon
- 2 fresh diced garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- I also added some hot banana pepper rings
Mix kale, cranberries, tomatoes, nuts, onions in a glass bowl. In a separate dish, mix lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic to make a dressing. Pour dressing over kale and toss to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, overnight 6 hours or more is best! Before serving, toss in feta cheese.
Hopefully everyone had a great Monday! Let me know if you try these recipes. I promise you won't be disappointed!
