3 Things

The last item with my maiden monogram is a super soft blanket that A gave me from Star Monograms.

One of my guilty pleasures is chewing gum and I was thrilled when I saw the Orbit Double Pak.

It has been so much fun finding new recipes on Pinterest. I have been obsessed with Quinoa and made this Broccoli & Cheese Quinoa Casserole several times this winter. I modified the recipe slightly by eliminating the sugar/nutmeg, using organic ingredients and increasing the broccoli.

Have you tried the Mentos gum? I'm not even a gum chewer and I'm currently hoarding 3 containers in the whip's console. One mint and two of the lemon that taste a lot like my beloved Gatorade gum. Warning though, 'tis hard to find so when ya do, stock up! XXOO

I love quinoa! My most common quinoa dish is adding mushrooms, peppers, onions, and broccoli to it. How exciting to start thinking about getting new married monograms! :)

The blanket is lovely. Orbit is my gum of choice as well! I recommend having a few things made with your new monogram and putting them away to enjoy on your honeymoon!

I'm a Quinoa fool. This recipe looks delicious! And Ali's Gator Gum brings back memories of the tennis team. Yum!

I use quinoa all the time. I sub it in any recipe that calls for rice and got very creative this winter with creating quinoa "risottos". Lots of fun. Hooray for a new monogram!
