Suzie Freaking Homemaker!

Now that I am living a life that is completely foreign to me in every way, I have needed to make certain adjustments. The foreign life that I am referring to is not that of living out of the U.S., but that of an unemployed house-"wife" (I use the term "wife" loosely....honey try not to hyperventilate!).

So, to try to contribute to our household in a way that I never had much experience in before, I have taken to having a hot dinner on the table every night when Knut comes home to his clean house....(cleaning being the other "chore" that I have adopted).

I am quite proud of my dishes usually! Especially since the majority of my culinary skills back home consisted of Mexican food (easiest thing to make vegetarian without his objections),which i have been forced to branch out from since the necessary ingredients are difficult to come by.

Tonight's dinner: Pesto Chicken (for Knut), Pesto Tofu (for me), Balsamic Parmesan Cauliflower, and Balsamic Cinnamon Carrots.....delish!

Quick shout out to all of my Pinterest finds.....without that site, I would be a terrible house-"wife"! These are all things that I have made in the last couple of weeks that I would recommend trying...links to recipes are below....enjoy!
