Dancing for Food

Overcoming the ballet body image.

Pasta Salad!


School may be starting, but summer is not officially over for another month.  Therefore, I still eat summer food.

Tonight we made pasta salad.  Instead of bow-tie pasta though, we used fusilli.  We added a bunch of raw veggies: asparagus, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, and zucchini.  The whole thing was tossed with Italian dressing, nutritional yeast, and parmesan cheese and served on a bed of spinach

Another nice part of the evening was this:


That lovely little thing is almond champagne.  It was given to me today as a wedding gift from one of the counselors at school.  He said that it was what he and his wife drank at their wedding.  He gave a bottle to everyone who got married recently!


Isn’t that the most awesome thing ever?!  I was really touched.  And, we definitely enjoyed it tonight!  And probably will tomorrow!

Time to get in bed and read.  I need an actual night’s sleep tonight…tomorrow is the first day of school!

  1. Good luck at school tomorrow! The champagne looks tasty. Is it, like, buttery because of the almond?
