Happy Wednesday!  This weekend I made a trip to Home Goods and I scored some goodies!

I found some amazing coffee table books that I will read not just display! Also a major bowl for soup, cereal, noodles, just about anything! I love big bowls to eat out of! And lastly a new piece for my almost bar cart (inside joke see my bar cart post) and a few decorative knick knacks.

I was very happy with my finds!

Do you have any good hauls?

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Food: Gnocchi with Homemade Parmesan Cream Sauce

Here’s a little something different for you on the blog this hump day. Food! Today we’re talking about Gnocchi!

Gnocchi is potato pasta and it’s amazing. I had Gnocchi for the first time at a restaurant a few years ago and fell in love.

Now I don’t hand make my Gnocchi but I do make my sauce from scratch and it’s pretty bomb if I do say so myself.

Parmesan Cream Sauce:

  1. Butter
  2. Minced garlic
  3. Milk or half and half
  4. Flour
  5. Parmesan (grated)

I don’t have specific measurements I kind of just go with the flow when I’m cooking! However if you would like the measurements so you can try this at home I will provide them!

This dish is quick, filling, easy, and can be quite fancy!

There is shrimp in the picture! You can do no meat or you can add chicken or shrimp, I’ve done both!

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Project Bar Cart

I’ve been working on this project for quite some time and I’m still not done  but I wanted to share my progress!

I’m not really a drinker but I like the idea of a bar cart. For me it’s more about fashion rather than function (as are most things in my life lol).

I’ve been buying a few things here and there for my bar cart. I have a few glasses, cute paper straws, a tray, etc. but no actual bar cart.

The latest addition to my cart-less bar cart are decanters!  I was shopping in an antique store where I found three gorgeous vintage crystal decanters. I bought all three for 20 bucks!

I decided to take the bits and pieces I have collected so far and do a faux bar cart styling.

I have a few more pieces but I’m on the search for the perfect bar cart. I would like something with a least two levels and with gold accents.

What do you think so far?

Meal Prep: Chicken Stir Fry

For the past two months I have been meal prepping. It is a life saver! I do it every week for my lunch for work. It’s easy and nice not to have to worry about food each day. It is also great for trying to get in/stay in shape.

I have fun coming up with different meals each week.

What I do:

Every Sunday is meal prep day. I do meat and veggies at the very least. This past week was chicken stir fry.

I made the chicken stir fry with chicken tenderloins, broccoli, mushrooms, and peppers. I cooked rice and I eat fruit with every meal prep. Depending on my work week I do prep for three or four days.

I add fruit or apple sauce and I’m set for the week! I reach in the fridge each morning pull out lunch and hit the road. This is so easy and stress free plus it’s fun coming up with a new recipe every week!

Love it. Live it. Eat it.
