Sometimes you just have to make yourself a homemade whole wheat cheese pizza for lunch, intended to not share with anyone else. Forbidden Rice Blog - Everyday Life Week 7 (10 of 18)

The folks at Don Pancho sent me a handsome goodie box on Valentine’s Day, filled with these treats! I’m so excited to use EVERYTHING, but especially the hatch green chile wraps and golden blend tortillas — both of which I’d never seen before.

Tuesday was Fat Tuesday and having a Southern-born husband, we had a Southern type of meal. Red beans and rice…

Plus some accidentally gigantic beignets.

Wednesday was Valentine’s Day and we had a super low-key one this year (just as I prefer!). Sushi take-out, a shared cream puff for dessert, and sitting around watching the Winter Olympics.Forbidden Rice Blog - Everyday Life Week 7 (1 of 1)

We are still slowly (SOOO slowly) painting (now all the touch-ups, which, let me tell you… is NOT a job for someone with OCD tendencies). Our living room colors make me happy, though.

AND! While this doesn’t look like a major deal — in fact, you probably have no idea why I’m posting this photo — we now have light in the kitchen. I rewired and reinstalled all the lighting. In the process, I didn’t burn the house down and I also got it working on the first try! YES!

Lunch one day. A roasted chicken wrap filled with colby jack cheese, spinach, avocado, vegenaise, and pepperoncinis.Forbidden Rice Blog - Everyday Life Week 7 (18 of 18)

Everyday Life: Week 6

Here’s what this past week looked like: Everyday Life Week 6

Earlier in the week we were still staying at my mother-in-law’s house, as we began painting our living room and kitchen. Percy making sure I didn’t fall off the ladder while taping the ceiling off to paint.

Pre-painted kitchen.

Post-painted kitchen. There are still things to do (including putting new lighting in, as we currently have none in the ceiling. :| My iPhone doesn’t do justice to the colors — they’re rich, vibrant, and we love them.

Nana surprised us and made dinner one night when we were staying at her house, which was a very nice treat after spending the entire day cleaning and painting. “Mexican Casserole,” which is what Silas asks her to make occasionally.

Wrigby loves to sit this way all the time. Cracks me up every time.

Apologies in advance: because so much time has been spent painting and working on our house, the cooking has been sporadic… Hence, this post will be filled with cat pictures. Ha!

Our living room is now Oceanside and Big Chill, versus a pinkish shade and a greenish shade I never quite liked.

Managed to spend the day cleaning, painting, then made a hempseed flour + whole wheat crusted cheese pizza on National Pizza Day. With a spinach/romaine salad with strawberries, almonds, sunflower seeds, some feta and a red wine vinaigrette.
