make your outfits ready for spring

gray everlane wool sweater and black ripped jeans M Loves M @marmar
Black and grays always look so good together but I wanted to make the combo look a little more spring-ready with some mint so enter these PRETTY PUMPS and this STRIPED SCARF {last seen here!}. Mint is one of my favorite spring colors and it's great as an accent. This outfit minus the mint has a little edginess which I like but, come on, I need to girly it up a little bit!

Not sure if you can tell but I got a subtle color change last week! I went to Kari Hill at Meche Salon in Beverly and she gave me some peekaboo caramel highlights. I was contemplating doing a soft ombre {or should I say sombre} but I really wanted to keep it as close to my natural color. I love how Kari gave it a little more richness and depth! Also, thank you Joseph for the pretty waves!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Sweet Potato and Spinach Breakfast Bowl

March 3, 2015

Sweet Potato and Spinach Breakfast Bowl with a Fried Egg M Loves M @marmar
I made this hearty SWEET POTATO AND SPINACH BREAKFAST BOWL for Matthew and it was such a great meal. While I love oatmeal and cereal in the morning, having veggies, a healthy starch, and some protein will definitely fill you up until lunchtime. Also, why is everything so much better with an egg? This dish sans egg would be great for a dinner side dish too!

Sweet Potato and Spinach Breakfast Bowl
serves 2

INGREDIENTS
1 sweet potato, peeled {if you like} and cut into 1/4-inch slices
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup finely diced yellow or white onions
5-6 cups tightly packed spinach leaves
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup goat cheese ,crumbled
1/4 cup fresh chives, minced

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the sweet potato slices with 2 Tbsp of the olive oil and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Roast on a parchment-lined pan for 30 minutes, flipping once in between, until browned but not dry.

Sauté the onion with the remaining 1 Tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until soft and translucent. Add the potatoes, spinach and the remaining 1/4 tsp salt and sauté for about 30 seconds-1 minute, until wilted. Toss with tongs if necessary. Set aside.

Heat 1 Tbsp of the butter in a nonstick pan over high heat. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and slide into the pan. Cook  until the whites are set but the yolks are running, about 2 minutes.

Divide the potato mixture into the two bowls. Slide the eggs onto the potatoes. Sprinkle with goat cheese and chives. Enjoy immediately.

I roasted the sweet potato the night before while I made dinner and then used it the next day but you can definitely make it in the morning too!
