Ginger and garlic (brown) fried rice with onions. Topped with arame sea veggies and a fried egg. Jeremy’s reaction: “When did you become Top Chef!?”

I’ve been wanting to try out this recipe over at Smitten Kitchen ever since it was posted. And I’m currently reading Alicia Silverstone’s book, The Kind Diet, and was inspired by all of her Asian-influenced cooking. She talks a lot about sea veggies which I hadn’t given much thought too except for when I’m eating sushi. I picked up a package at Native Roots this weekend and Jeremy actually suggested integrating them into this recipe.

The combination of deconstructed flavors was amazing. I had slightly overcooked the egg and missed out on the oozy goodness of the yolk. I’ll try again with leftovers.

This weekend Jeremy and I booked our flights to Kathmandu and will be trekking to Everest Base Camp this year.

Everest has been pulling at me for a while now – I’m beyond excited for this adventure.

Animal-shaped rugs

We all know I love my animal furs but it’s not very kind to the animal itself.

Young House Love recently did an animal-inspired rug tutorial. I love the whimsy contrast of a synthetic rug paired with an animal shape. This rug is trying to be something it’s not but in a really obvious and endearing way.

a. You could make one in grey! I think this is the real-deal, as it is in a Swedish home, but still inspiring. I like the larger shape of it. (via Desire to Inspire)
