Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Mediterranean Pasta Salad is a weekly staple. Perfect for work lunches paired with extra greens. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

Pasta salad is a big part of my meal prep rotation. It’s something we eat year round because I have the muscle memory to buy all of the ingredients at the grocery store every few weeks. Also, it’s PASTA SALAD. It’s salad that is PASTA BASED. How can you not like that??

Pasta salad is part of my rotation because it can easily be fortified. Throw some on a bed of arugula and you’re golden. Add fresh tomatoes and chopped cucumbers and you’ve got yourself a little Greek feast. Heck, I even threw some avocado in there today for lunch because WHY NOT??

Really, the tang of the vinegar, the green of the pesto and the sharp salty bites of the feta and olives will keep your attention. That is until you finally tell yourself to have some DANG self-control. Meditteranean Pasta Salad is coming to a picnic table near you!

Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, friends! It’s been hot here in the Bay Area (102F!) and I don’t want to do A THING. I just want to sit on my couch and eat an ice cold cantaloupe with a fan pointed at my face. I have to remind myself of some snack dinners that might get us through this heat wave.  Gotta push on through the week!!  I didn’t post an Intentions for the Week last week (I opted for my Summer Bucket List) and it threw me off. That’s a good sign that showing up and writing down what I want to accomplish HELPS. Right?  Time to clear my head and get it all out there:

INTENTIONS FOR THE WEEK:

  • clean out fridge/do a deep clean
  • make a master cleaning schedule for my house
  • research dentist/make doctor appt for physical  (uggh)
  • meal prep
  • figure out which prints to sell next
  • clean up my workspace/put books away
  • make a batch of kombucha
  • LAUNDRY
  • move files over to hard drive
  • make it so I have two eyebrows and not one
  • get Cooper a haircut (totally behind on this)
  • yoga x 2  and maybe a hike if I can
  • make a list of camping supplies/packing list
  • catch up on social media
  • do some solid stretches (my body is feeling STIFF)
  • prep gguest room for company
  • catch up on writing letters/mail letters + thank you notes
  • make a pasta salad recipe for the blog
  • shoot apron photos
  • shoot ice cream floats
  • trip to the dump?
  • EAT OUTSIDE as much as possible
  • leisure reading if I can (currently enjoying Theft by Finding by David Sedaris)

What about you?

What are you up to this week?

Let’s see what you’ve got planned!
