Vegan pesto linguini for Valentine’s Day dinner

Vegan pesto linguini for Valentine’s Day dinner

  • Starting off my growing season with some baby kale! I bought a little bunch at the Pearl Farmer’s Market, cut off the top to eat in a salad, and planted the rest. Kale is super hardy and grows well even at lower temps!

  • Spent Valentine’s Day visiting the brand new IKEA that just opened in San Antonio. We had a blast and came home with some new glass jars for bulk goods and some lingonberry jam!

  • New recipes I tried and enjoyed this month: smashed pesto potatoes, homemade paneer with saag, a vegan pesto linguini for Valentine’s dinner, chipotle black bean soup, and french yogurt lemon loaf.

  • Purchased a loom and started a weaving hobby I’ve been wanting to explore for a while. Here are my first two pieces.

  • Loving my new Litto Howler adventure pack! I take this on walks, to the park, and every time we go out because it fits so much stuff and keeps Luna’s stuff separate from mine!

  • Made the splurge on a high quality, sustainably sourced cutting board from Material Kitchen, and it is the most gorgeous thing in my kitchen right now. Bonus points for supporting fellow Asian American entrepreneurs!

  • Favorite read of the month - Many of my friendships have relegated to social media interactions once I physically move away - and I move, a lot. But these digital micro interactions, superficial as they may seem, play an important role in my ability to still participate in my friends’ lives, and thus sustain them in a low-maintenance fashion. Quite grateful for technology these days.

  • Heard of Green Circle Salons? They provide North America’s only sustainable salon solution to recover and repurpose beauty waste, allowing salons to repurpose and recover up to 95% of resources such as hair, leftover hair color, foils, color tubes, aerosol cans, paper and plastics. Something worth pondering when choosing your next stylist!
