Kebabin’ It

Monday? Really? Althought I’m enjoying a delicious breakfast – made with frozen “smoothie” blend fruits, defrosted (do it!) – I can’t begin to fathom the fact that it’s really already Monday. I did manage to fit in a sweet upper body workout this morning as well. Going by my by-laws of fitting in exercise during my busy days, feels good. Exercise = major Monday confidence boost too.

Overnight oats topped w/ goodness!


I couldn’t have asked for a more adventurous weekend…well, foodie-wise. I’ve always been told to have an open mind and I’m so thankful to have Sana around to help open my mind to new foods! In my last post, I talked about her birthday celebration where we went out for Indian food – and I was totally blown away. I guess I’ve been sticking with the typical for too long? Yea, I eat sushi a lot, Italian food and maybe some Mexican dishes every now and then, but I’m not sure why I’ve always looked past more ethnic foods. Hot damn this stuff is good!

Salmon Kebab!


Lastnight Sana and I went out on a “kebab date” – I ordered a salmon kebab and Sana ordered a beef kabab.

Sana's Kebab!


Kebabin it!

Other than eating and laughing away the weekend with some new friends, I spent some time with the most adorable niece ever and my fam. FYI: super jealous of my niece, especially on Monday’s cause I know when I’m sitting in class and/or rushing around campus like a mad woman, Mia is most likely doing one of the following: a) eating b) sleeping c) pooping  d) taking a bath or e) just being cute. Not fair, I know, especially because I know I do not look cute on Mondays, mmmmgurl. All in favor for mid-campus bathtubs with extra bubbles raise your hands!

Clearly not interested in the cam.


Ladybug love!


I also made my five-alarm chili for the fam-bam (see my updated recipe page!) and I’ve got a few more to share when I’ve got some time between my raging classes this week. Here’s a sneak preview:

S'ketti squash somewhere in there


Coming soon.


I’m off to class. OH but before I go, Sana and I did the “Accent Vlog”…embarrassing and fun all at the same time. If you haven’t done it – DO IT.

What’s your favorite “ethnic” dish?

What’s your Monday mantra?

Peace and love!

  1. Mmm, I love ANY ethnic dish! I would probably rather have Greek/Italian/Mexican/Thai/Sushi/yougetthepicture than a boring ol’ sandwich or salad! (Unless we’re talking Greek salad, of course!) My favorite would probably have to be sweet potato tempura sushi (tried that for the first time this weekend – holy wow!) or veggie enchiladas. Or margaritas…does that count as an ethnic dish? 😉

  2. HAHAHA cute vlog – I’m afraid to do that one since I don’t want to know if I talk funny 😛
