Goodnight Gnocchi

After spending several hours at my friend Laurel’s apartment last night, my tummy started grumbling. I headed home for my gnocchi date with Ryan.

Gnocchi

We tried gnocchi for the first time at a wedding in May and loved it. Why it has taken us this long to try it again, I have no idea.

I found a recipe in Real Simple for gnocchi with roasted cauliflower that sounded perfect.

Roasted Cauliflower

 To roast the cauliflower I tossed the veggie with olive oil, salt and pepper before roasting it at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.

I altered the Real Simple recipe a bit to incorporate more veggies like spinach and portobello mushrooms before topping the gnocchi and vegetables with Parmesan cheese.

Gnocchi and Veggies

The gnocchi was so delicious. It was doughy and filling. We’ll definitely be having this again soon.

Today

This morning I woke up in the mood for pumpkin and pancakes, so pumpkin protein pancakes with fresh strawberries and syrup sounded fantastic.

Saturday Morning Breakfast

Weekend breakfasts are the best.

Today I have plans to take Sadie on a long walk with Ryan, run some errands and go to the gym before going out for my friend Merri’s birthday.

Side note: It’s freezing in Orlando today.
