Debut Dinner!

Helloooo world!  Welcome to my blog about food, food, food, oh, and travelling and climbing, the two other things I love doing most outside of my full time job …on top of finding and making GOOD FOOD.  A lot of this blog will be about my journey into the world of whole foods and trying to cut out all of the refined and processed foods that I unknowingly relied on to lose my “college 15.”  I’ve been on a long road to get here, learning about portion sizes, how many calories are in the foods I love and how to whip up alternatives to those foods.  It will also feature lots of climbing adventures here in the great state of Wyoming and my trips around the world!  There’s going to be loads more in the “About” section about me, so be sure to check that out to learn more about me and my 3 favorite things in life 😀 

So, I’m just going to dive right in.  This entry’s got it all!  I just returned from a trip to St. Lucia in the south caribbean it was just sooo relaxing and wonderful.  We stayed in a house we rented off of vrbo.com.  This website is a travellers best friend.  It’s Vacation Rentals by Owner.  Check it out and these pictures!

Annnd then, there’s climbing.  You guys, climbing is something I’ve always wanted to do but only really got into about 1 1/2 years ago.  I love the challange and the people I’ve met through it, so I’m totally stoked to share it with you guys!  Some interesting food should show up in these posts too since we’re always throwing together fun stuff at camp 🙂  Here’s a photo or two from last weekend.

And, finally, here are the goods – my dinner tonight!  OK, it’s not THE most exciting thing by any stretch of the imagination, but I had a huge leftover steak for lunch, so I loaded up on veggies tonight and made a seriously tasty honey curry hummus from Ashley’s blog on half of a whole wheat pita!  I sauteed the veggies in olive oil with red pepper flakes, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.  Veggies were: white onion, broccoli, carrots, red cabbage (got that idea in St. Lucia!), crimini mushies, yellow bell pepper, asparagus, and spinach.  Whew!  I loaded up on veggies when I got back from vacay as you can see!

So Delish Honey Curry Hummus

That’s all folks!  Probably a bit longer than the typical post here will be.  Can’t wait to get this going and share my eats, travels, and climbing with all of you wonderful blog readers!!
