homemade marinara sauce & green goodness


I made homemade marinara sauce today! I followed Giada’s recipe (love her) from here. The only changes I made were leaving out the bay leaf since I didn’t have it, and I added some shredded zucchini, a fresh plum tomato from the garden, and a pinch of sugar after cooking for awhile. I added some turkey meatballs from Trader Joe’s and Joe and I brought it over to Lora’s to have dinner with her and the babe. The ravioli was filled with spinach and ricotta. I made a fruit salad and got some of these mini focaccia loaves from Caputos. Aren’t they cute?


I also made some green goodness this morning for breakfast and for Joe when he got home from work and wanted to eat everything in sight.

I leave you with… yoga baby!

“You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus. Our God and Father abounds in glory that just pours out into eternity.” Philippians 4:19,20
