It’s been a hot minute since I’ve updated this blog! But after a short hiatus, I’m back, and I’ll be starting at least updating it weekly with Sunday Scribbles!

Tasting

On Monday, we actually meal prepped for the entire week, by grilling. BBQing might be one of my favorite things about the summer!

Just marinate enough protein for the whole week, with different marinades, and grill some veggies to last a few days!

A few recipes I used:

  • A simple miso chili marinade for chicken legs: Mix together miso, your favorite chili or hot sauce, sesame oil, and just enough water to thin it out.
  • This chicken yogurt shawarma recipe from Saveur on some chicken, mushroom, and green pepper kabobs!

The rest of the week, we paired them with different salads, and even in wraps!

Bonus: No need to clean the kitchen every day after cooking!

Watching

We started watching Little Big Lies. It’s a heavy show, and I do not recommend it for binging! But with its star studded cast, I just had to give it a chance. So far, I’m four episodes in, and not yet hooked.

I’ve also been watch so many Jon Oliver segments! He’s one of my favorite comedians, because of how well he educates through comedy! In today’s sensitive political climate, definitely need someone who can educate, without taking things too seriously!

Creating

I made two cakes that i’m super proud of! If you want to follow along with other cakes and bakes I make, follow me on Instagram

Reading

I’m usually reading a few books at the same time. Currently reading:

The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters

Smith argues that the unending pursuit of happiness has distracted us from what really matters – the search for meaning. The book focuses on four pillars: Belonging, Purpose, Storytelling and Transcendence. I’m just getting started and will let you know how it goes!

Planning

We’re finally going on our honeymoon, in just a few weeks, we’ll be doing a 3 week trip across Spain and Portugal! If you have any tips, please send them my way!

Trip planning for Spain & Portugal!

Until next week!

Cheers,

Anum
