Fresh Vegetables Lightly Sautéed…and a quick note about my hair!


This weekend was a whirlwind…I had attended a double bachelorette party for two of my good friends, my former roommate of four years, Kaylee, came down to Orlando to visit, and I was a hair model for Mosaic Hair Salon and Blow Out Bar during the Orlando ‘I do’ Bridal Crawl. During the Bridal Crawl, I acted as a hair model getting extensions, and now I have lovely long hair! I could not be more excited!

I have not had hair past my shoulders for 10 years, and I am near clueless on what amazing things I can accomplish with my new hair. To aid me in my journey, I enlisted the help of Christine, who works the marketing side of Mosaic. It was during one of our ‘lets teach Jenni how to do hair’ sessions that I came up with the following recipe (see! I had a food related point to make after all!)

Fresh vegetables Lightly Sautéed

2 tbs olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
2 yellow squash, chopped
handful of cherry tomatoes, diced
1-2 cups of fresh kale sliced
1 red/green combination pepper chopped
fresh basil to season
fresh oregano to season
juice from 1/2 lemon

This is a great way to clean out the fridge! Lightly sauté the garlic in the olive oil. Add the squash, tomatoes, kale, and pepper. Let sit for a few minutes. Add basil, oregano, and lemon juice. Lower heat and cover. Cook until the vegetables are tender.

This colorful dish is a healthy snack, or meal! (I had been grazing all day, and needed a healthy snack!) As this dish is quick (under 15 minutes, if timed correctly) it is great for when you need to throw something together! Did I mention cleaning out the fridge?
