Wowwwww what a whirlwind past few days I’ve had! We moved out of our apartment Friday and into our new apartment Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening involved unpacking and going out to dinner because we had no food. I’d say we’re mostly unpacked minus the kitchen. While I love the kitchen and all of its modern features (<< I sound like I’m on House Hunters…), there isn’t really much storage space. Like, no room for pots/pans/my never-ending supply of appliances (i.e. blender, food processor etc.). I’m hoping to make an Ikea run to find shelving or a cart to keep stuff on. Woo! Miguel’s pumped because he loves (and by loves I mean hates) building stuff from Ikea
In other news, it’s August. I know August was so two days ago, but I’m just now realizing it and holy crap how is that possible? July flew by and I have a feeling August is going to fly by just as quickly. I can’t say I’m super mad about it though, because as much as I love summer, I love fall even more. Plus, Puerto Rico in September so you know where my mind’s at.
One plus about the new apartment is that the living room is HUGE compared to our last place. We have enough room for a sectional plus another couch if we really wanted! Assuming we stay in this place for more than one year (fingers crossed), I’d love to get one. I know, I know DREAM BIG. The other plus is that we now live within walking distance to the dog park, which is awesome for both us and for Layla.
A negative is that the sunlight doesn’t really stream into the apartment until around 2:00 it seems. I predict I’m going to have to do lots of experimenting with the light to see when the best time of day is to snap photos.
Aaaaaand in typical beginning of the month fashion, I’m sharing a new almond flavor with you.
These almonds are filled with honey soy sauce flavor, a little sticky and a whole lot of delicious. I love soy sauce and I’ve been in love with honey since age 8, so combining the two only makes sense. These almonds are just as simple as my other recipes—you place the almonds, along with the other ingredients into a large skillet for approximately 5 minutes until the almonds have absorbed the flavor. Viola! So simple and so YUM. If you haven’t made your own flavored almonds before, GET WITH IT
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp honey
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ tsp coconut sugar
- ½ tsp grated ginger
- Place almonds, soy sauce and honey in a skillet and stir for approximately 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in salt, sugar and ginger.
