Hi. I apologize.
For all you new followers, you probably think I’m a terrible blogger. Inconsistent. Eating cream cheese stuffed pumpkin muffins instead of blogging. Forgetting about you.
I promise. It is quite the contrary. Let’s just say this week has been a little… crazy. But now I am going to bombard you with recipes. Except. Not on the weekends. Because I’m trying this new “Monday through Friday post” thing except I need to be posting FIVE days a week, NOT two or three.
DON’T LEAVE. Because if you leave, you won’t get to learn about these delicious shells. That house a salad. I got this idea from Pinterest, clearly, because Pinterest is where dreams go to live and homework, priorities, and responsibilities go to die. But in a good way.
So back to the shells. These are extremely versatile. You just make a salad in a bowl and shove it into some shells. Easy enough. If I can do it at 4:45pm before I have to leave at 5:15pm for my night class, you can definitely do it. And hey, maybe this is a good way for parents to start getting their kids to like salads: stick it in a pasta shell. [If you can’t tell, we are still on the toddler section in my Lifecycle Nutrition class.]
