As I was uploading my photos into Ecto for this post, I realized that it was very Carrots ‘N’ Cake-like. It starts with a healthy salad, ends with dessert, and there’s a cute pug in the middle. Doesn’t it just scream CNC?!? 😉


After a 4.5-hour bus ride home from NYC, Mal picked me up from the T station and we headed straight home to make dinner. We were both starving, so we threw together a quick and easy meal. We enjoyed a couple of arugula salads with tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, broccoli, celery, red onion, leftover Pasta Ponza, tomato-basil feta crumbles, and balsamic vinegar. It was a pretty kick-ass salad, if you ask me! 😀


While Mal and I enjoyed dinner on the front porch, Murphy hung out in the yard. (Gosh, he’s adorable! Look at that pug face!!)


For dessert, I whipped up a batch of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies. Oh, yes, I did! 😀 I had a serious craving for one after seeing them at Magnolia this afternoon, so I used Courtney’s Granola Blondies recipe to inspire my own.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Makes 12 bars


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cup packed brown sugar
