Busy week!

Hi all!

Haven’t gotten to post lately life has been so crazy! All week I have been working at OMG! Insider and have been baking some awesome treats for Echo’s Friends’ Cookies!!

Echo got to play tug of war for real finally with an awesome pup Charlie at the dog park.

I’ve also been looking for a new roommate which has been a bit more time consuming than expected. Hopefully we can find the right person soon.

Last night I also made lunch for the next two days at work, Lindsey and her mom had given me this pot of condensed stock:

So I made some ground turkey, spinach and rice using this condensed stock.

First I cooked up the turkey meat on the stove with organic Worcester sauce.

The put 2 bags of rice melody (from trader joes) in the microwave.

Once the meat was cooked up I added the condensed stock and organic frozen spinach, and cooked it until the spinach was warmed through.

Last I added the cooked rice and stirred it well.

Celebrity chef and a favorite quick Lunch

Yesterday I got to meet Celebrity Chef Susan Feniger. She was on Top Chef Masters, had a Food Network Show, and has multiple restaurants here in LA and all over. She was in a scene for a show I was working on. I got to speak with her about her newest restaurant Street. Which I hope to go eat at soon!

Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite lunches (or dinners) when I have a quiet day at home. It might seem a bit odd but I love ground turkey so it works for me.

Pesto Pasta with Ground Turkey

(You can always make this with grilled chicken breast instead! Which I’ve done in the past)

• Boil water for your pasta. I used bow tie but use your favorite!

• Cook pasta till al Dente and drain.

• Meanwhile brown your ground turkey.

• Season with salt,
Pepper, and garlic.

• Warm up you favorite pesto. (Usually (like today) I have some that i made in my freezer, but you can use a jar or a sauce powder packet.)

• Once your pesto is ready add some heavy cream to it. Base the amount on how you like it balanced.

• When everything is ready, I just mix it all together. (But you can always just add the pesto to the pasta and keep your meat separate!)

I don’t know why I love this so much but I do! Especially if I haven’t had pasta in a while.

What are your favorite meals for a quiet day at home?
