Meet me in St. Louis

 As you all know, I love to travel. I'm always looking for a reason to hop on a plane and go explore a new city or to take a drive with my stereo blaring on the way to a new adventure. Recently, my travels haven't been too crazy. Mostly, between my home and my parent's place in Florida. However, I was finally afforded the opportunity to visit my best friend in her home town. Now I've been to St. Louis a few times so you won't not the arch or the cardinals field and things that I've seen before. This time we took a trip to the St. Louis Zoo and Ted Drewes, which I've been craving for a year. I apologize in advanced for the quality, I forgot my camera at home and was left with my phone. But I hope you enjoy! And let me know where you've got plans to go.

Isn't he cute?



As per usual, I've been traveling a ton lately, which can make eating clean and healthy harder. It also means catching up with friends is a must in between trips. So to make my waist, budget and lifestyle all agree, I've invited some friends over for dinner tonight. Cooking and eating in means I save money and know the quality of food my body is taking it. Winning all around! Here are the recipes we are trying out tonight:
                                                      Risotto-Style Barley & Asparagus

                                                Fennel, Mustard & Lemon-Crusted Salmon

Hopefully, they turn out as delicious as they look! If you have any suggestions for dishes you love that I should try, let me know. :)
