I feel like this blog post is an awkward lunch between two people who haven’t seen each other in a while. But this girl is busy! I am teaching a toddler and 4-8 year old ballet class on the weekends that is eating up my Bakey Katey time. Add in a few other projects that are taking up my evenings and my gourmet cooking is turning into pp&j’s. Don’t judge.

I did manage to make one healthy recipe lately. Blue Apron has some deliciously unique recipes and I love trying out new dishes. I picked their Thai Curry Chicken Meatball recipe that included rice noodles, baby bok choy, lemongrass and chicken meatballs in a red coconut curry. Yum!

The first full week at work after the holidays was a jammed packed one. Filled with a last minute work trip that included only 4 hours of sleep in 48 hours, 16 miles of walking, a mid-flight turnaround back to Las Vegas, and my first and last 4.5 hours on the Las Vegas strip, I have been recovering ever since. (zicam is my best buddy) On top of that, last weekend one of my great friends came to visit from Brooklyn, so I spent the week getting ready for her and planning all the great Denver places to show her. Needless to say, this girl is busy and tired.

Not to busy to eat though. Come on. Last week, I whipped up a healthy Peruvian Royal Quinoa Salad to make up for undeniably tastey and unhealthey traveling diet. Quinoa, carrots, peas, corn, red peppers, tomatoes and chopped queso fresco on top of a bed of romaine was the ticket to feeling great about my lunch. My coworker peered over my desk to say, oh yummy! And they were right.

Love Katey on Election Tuesday. Oh, and it’s colorful too which equals extra deliciousness points.

Yum. Yum. Yum. This. Soup.

Kicking fall into gear with this Sweet Potato Sriracha Noodle Soup was the best idea ever. The veggie broth is the perfect mix of sriracha, garlic, ginger and lime juice. Add in the sweet potatoes, soba noodles and toppings and you have yourself a pho worthy rival. AND best part? It is ready in 30ish minutes and you don’t have to sit in a restaurant with bad elevator music and art. Just you and this awesome soup. Thank me next week when you give it a go.

Denver always has an ever-growing culinary scene and the other weekend my Mountain Man and I zoomed over to the South Park Hill Neighborhood for a quick lunch and dessert. We ate lunch at Chop Shop a new casual urban eatery on Colfax. I had their Super Chop salad, full of baby kale, mixed greens, quinoa, adzuki beans, egg and avocado tossed in a champagne vinaigrette dressing while my guy tried their burger. We both enjoyed a cold beer with our lunch and were very happy how tasty everything was. Afterwards, we crossed the street to Nuggs Ice Cream for a sweet treat and their mint chocolate chip ice-cream was delicious! It was a great change of pace to explore a different neighborhood while enjoying some great grub. Check them out!
