Friday Food and Favorite: A Healthy Sandwich From My Friend's Great Blog

Friday, August 10, 2012

I don't know about you but I'm always hungriest at lunch. And Fridays are especially difficult. There's something about the combination of the aromas of delicious homemade food and the impending weekend that make me STARVING around lunchtime on Friday. Of course I'm usually so busy that I literally have to force myself to take out a few minutes to prepare something wholesome for myself...otherwise I end up wolfing down pizza and fried with the kids (which by now we all know is not a good idea).

So what are some ideas for hearty and healthy lunches? Well, I hopped over to my friend Sarah's new blog The Patchke Princess  to check out some of her fabulous recipes and came upon this sandwich that looks freakin' awesome!

Recipe HERE
Now, you've seen Sarah here on my blog before; we've done quite a few things together. But I'd like to formally introduce you to her blog because it's not only about food; it's about real and raw emotion, her life as a newly single Mom and how she connects all that to the most delicious recipes. It's also written in a fun to read poetic format.

For my favorites I have a whole bunch of goodies: First I want to introduce my newest sponsor, then I want to tell you about how you can easily get yourself a FREE makeup bag, and finally I want to show you some of my favorite new pieces from my TWO shopping sites; one for jewelry and the other for clothes and accessories. I hope you'll check them all out and find something you love! Remember that whenever you click on the ads and whatever you buy from my sites will earn me a little thank you!!

Now let's meet my newest sponsor:

Welcome Karen Michelle!

Karen Michelle is an accessory, clothing and gift boutique for  the contemporary woman who craves stylish and modest clothing. 

Ilana Yarmak co-owner of Karen Michelle says, "When Karen Michelle Boutique opened on September 14, 2011 we opened a casual contemporary store in the neighborhood, but we've become so much more than that. We cater to the trend-setting women.

   We have done extremely well, constantly having fabulous Sales/Parties. Most of our clientele are
returning customers. We attribute this to our great customer service and friendly environment. We have
customers returning weekly just to check out the “New Buys of the Week”. We also have a stylist on sight at all times to make sure that we can create the perfect outfit that is suitable for you. Whether it is a splash of color or a beautiful new bracelet we have it here. 

   We want you to love what you buy from us. If you don't feel beautiful then we wouldn’t want you to buy it. Our number one goal is that people walk out adoring what they bought and that they feel great!!!!  

   Here at Karen Michelle we limit the quantity of each unique item we sell. It is very rare that you will see another person wearing the same blouse around town.  Recently, we have brought in a new line of Plus Size Clothing. There was nothing on the Westside of L.A. for a trendy Plus size wardrobe until now. 

   We have become a staple in the modest women’s community in Los Angeles. We are open 6 days a week, however, after-hour appointments with our personal stylist are also available. We truly are the best kept secret in LA. So if you live on the West Coast, hurry up and stop in because the secret won’t be a secret much longer……."

Check out Karen Michelle on Facebook where you can purchase their fabulous clothes online!
