What’s for Dinner: Week #145 and Lately in Awesome Divergent Movie, KIDS, Reached and a new Outlet Mall

So I am once again a failure. I do not have any fresh pasta and frankly I don’t feel like making it today. I have a sneaky bookish crafty plan of awesomeness planned for today. I hope I can pull it off. I will be sharing sneak peeks on my old Instagram as I go.

Day Main Meal Goals (Veggies, Whole Grain, Fish)
Sunday Acorn Squash and Sausage Grains and nuts: granola bars
Veggies: Salads and peas
Fish: tilapia
Monday White Chili and Cornbread
Tuesday Egg Sandwiches
Wednesday Ravioli
Thursday Eat Out
Friday Pork Costeletta,  Mashed Potatoes, and Peas
Saturday Pasta…maybe? ;)

I was thinking of doing a little “lately in awesome” shout out every once in a while, I’m not going to comment to it’s regularity because as the pasta and the last few months have proved I’M.A.BIG.FAT.LIAR. But I’ve got a few awesome tidbits from around the interweb to share with you today.

  • You know how they are making a movie out of the Divergent books by Veronica Roth that I LOVE? Well Shailene Woodley, who I knew from The Secret Life of the American Teenager was cast as Tris. Now in my opinion Amy Jurgens is one of the most obnoxious characters out there so I was a little nervous about the pick. So I added The Descendents movie to my netflix queue and after watching it I think I can see Tris in her. I hope she/they do a good job. Remember how nervous I was about Jennifer and The Hunger Games but I think she made a great Katniss. Here’s where Veronica talked about the Divergent Movie news.
  •  Jessica of Me Sew Crazy has two bits of awesomeness I want to share. First is her Kids Inspiration and Design Series she has going on her blog. All about getting the kiddos involved in the design process and working from their inspiration. I has be so fun to read. You should definitely check it out Second she was featured on Bernina’s We All Sew you can read the write up here. Congrats friend!
  • And this hasn’t happened quite yet but this Tuesday I along with many others including friends from The Broke and The Bookish and Housewife Eclectic will be heading to King English’s released party for Ally Condie’s Reached, the final book in her Matched series. If you’re int he SLC area and enjoy her books you should swing by and definitely say hi. You can get all the details here.
  • Finally Utah County is getting a new outlet mall. I’ll be heading down for the grand opening of the Traverse Outlets this Thursday. Vanessa from Our Thrifty Ideas posted a whole big fancy thing about it , you should join us or check it out later this weekend since it sounds like they have loads of fun things scheduled see her post here..


  1. Thank you so much!!! You are awesome :)

  2. my pleasure!

  3. OH wow! I didn’t realize they were already casting for the movie!

  4. I know crazy right it’s really happening!

  5. Hmmm, I don’t know about Shailene Woodley, I always pictured someone smaller and frailer (is that a word?) who could still pull off being tough, I just don’t see that in Woodley. I was thinking more like Dakota Fanning, she was great in Push.
