Oven Roasted Zucchini

Another Pinspired recipe for today's Delicious Dish Tuesday!
I loved making this Oven Roasted Asparagus awhile back and thought I would give zucchini a try for a nice summer treat and it was tasty!!
Find original pin here.


2-3 small/medium zucchinis
minced garlic
olive oil
parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First cut zucchini in half lengthwise and then in half again.
Place some tin foil on a cookie sheet and arrange zucchini on it.
I am very bad at measuring when I am cooking but I just mixed everything but the parmesan cheese in a bowl to taste.
Then, I brushed it on the zucchini making sure to get most of the garlic that falls on to the slices.
Sprinkle on parmesan cheese.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 11-13 minutes.

Looks Lately v3.0

(image from Pinterest)

I had to laugh the other day when my husband was confused why I was wearing cobalt blue wedges to run some errands and stop pick up a few things at Costco. I promptly responded that I wore them because they matched my outfit of course! ;)

Wearing scrubs for 12 hours 3-4 times a week a lot of times I love dressing up on my days off even if it is to run errands! I enjoy putting outfits together and expressing some of my creativity that way.
 If you look good, you feel good too!

Have you ever felt all put together or loved the outfit you were wearing 
and noticed a change in your mood??

Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

This week's recipe is a Pinterest inspiration.
I love caesar salad and this recipe, with the addition of pasta, is the perfect blend of salad and pasta for summer!!
See original Pinterest pin here.

Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad


1 1/2 chicken breasts, grilled
6 oz. penne pasta
4 cups romaine lettuce, chopped or shredded
1/2 med. size cucumber or 2 small ones
1 roma tomato, chopped
2-3 green onions, chopped
1 carrot, shredded (I chopped up baby carrots)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup croutons
Caesar salad dressing, to taste

1. Cook pasta according to package. Drain water, rinse with cold water and set aside to cool.
2. Chop grilled chicken in to small chunks.
3. In a large bowl, toss together the veggies, pasta, romaine, chicken, parmesan, and croutons.
4. Add caesar dressing to taste and enjoy!

This salad has great flavor and crunch! 
I wasn't so sure about how I was going to like the addition of the pasta but I loved it!
So did my hubby! And it made great leftovers!! My co-workers thought I had bought it at the store.

Friday the 13th!!!

Superstitions:  a belief or way of behaving that is based on fear of the unknown and faith in magic or luck : a belief that certain events or things will bring good or bad luck  
(according to Merriam-Webster online).
Now, don't get me wrong... I have a few of these that I may or may not believe (mostly centered around work!) but superstitions are what Friday the 13th is all about, right!?!?
Do you have any that you believe in?

Now, for the link up...


In honor of Friday the 13th, I got a chuckle out of this spin on the Hump Day commercial!! :)


How cute are these flats!?!?!
They are so adorable and SO light and comfy!
I just received them in the mail yesterday from Mindy Mae's Market!
They have the cutest stuff!!
GO check them out! 
They also have an Instagram account with tons of cute previews on their stuff!


Now, I am no green thumb so it makes me ecstatic that some trees/plants that we planted a couple years ago are 1) still alive and 2) getting bigger and prettier!!


It may seem silly, but you CAN still use your crockpot in the summer!
I know it's all about grilling come summertime but for those busy week nights that you just need something quick, it's nice to have a meal in the crockpot waiting for you!
A few months back I posted this recipe for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches in the crockpot and they are DELICIOUS!!! Last night I did a version with BBQ sauce and it did not disappoint!
Find the recipe here.


Be on the look out for a post on how to style your favorite graphic tee/ tank for almost any occasion!
Featuring this tank pictured above from Kohl's.
