KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! And happy Fall!! This Saturday marks the Autumn Equinox, and the first official day of Fall. Though the temps might still be quite high in some places, we can officially celebrate all things pumpkin spice. From home decor and body care products to fall beauty and fashion, you can find several ways to get started on seasonal shopping this weekend. Enjoy!

One of my favorite things to switch up with each new season is my makeup. This Fall I find myself really attracted to a mix of traditional warm tones and shimmery jewel tones as well. At Lip Love, there is no shortage of either in their beautiful new Fall collection! From their "Sierra" shade - a warm red lip gloss with gold and brown tones, to "Reign" - a stunning deep purple lip gloss with berry hues, the collection has every shade you need for the upcoming holiday season. If you can't make up your mind (who could blame you), you can purchase a lip duo like this Bronze Beauty …

Meatless Monday: Sweet Pea Parmesan


One of my favorite ways to go meatless is to simply throw together pasta, parmesan, and a green veggie like peas, broccoli or asparagus tips.

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 2)

*7oz uncooked dry spaghetti noodles

*1 C frozen sweet peas (can substitute w/any frozen veggie)

*1/4 C olive oil (or a few tbsp butter if you prefer)

*1/2 C grated parmesan

*pepper to taste

*garlic salt to taste (can substitute regular salt)

Simply cook the pasta as usual but a few minutes before it is done (when it's al dente) add in the frozen veggies and continue to boil.

Drain veggies and noodles and put pack in pot. Add oil/butter, cheese and spices and stir thouroughly. Serve with a salad.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can substitute with any kind of pasta or white cheese you have on hand, and you can substitute so many other different veggies. If you have super-picky eaters like I do, you can even cook a few different veggies and serve them separately as toppings. On nights when you do serve meat, you can try it with cubed chicken breast or smoked sausage. This dish is so easy and inexpensive, and you can cook it in less than 30 minutes.
