Kale & Almond Pesto Toast

Kale Pesto + Yogurt Toast | PDXfoodlove

What a nice weekend this has been. For the first time in forever, I didn’t have anything going on. Dave and I had time to go to yoga, have a long run outside, do a nice deep clean of the house and tons of laundry, and make gorgeous, healthy meals at home. Oh, and watch […]
