Well, maybe this isn’t what I just ate today…but I love blogging about FOOD, so I thought I would share what this family of three has been grubbing on or mostly what I have been eating.
I have been making a lot of zucchini pastas (because we have a plethora in our garden) with my handy dandy Spirulizer. (You guys have to get one) One of the easiest meals I make is chicken, kale and tomato sausages (from Costco), chopped tomatoes, zucchini, and some pine nuts. I cook it all up in a skillet.
We haven’t been going out to eat a lot because we enjoy eating with the little at home. But when we do want a fun dinner, we order our favorite BBQ Chicken Veggie Pizza with NO CHEESE! We also enjoy a good brew. Some of our favorite date nights have been on our back porch.
I also made it out on Monday for a little GNO at a fun place in town called Brew Cakes. It’s a lot like a gastro pub. On Mondays, they serve fun margaritas, like this one that I ordered, a Mango Jalapeño Margarita! I also ordered one of each of their tacos, carnitas, tilapia, and a beet veggie. They were all very delicious. I think I like the fish the best.
I have been sticking to my Ultimate Kickboxing 21 day challenge of not eating out for lunch. RJ and I have been very busy this week with Vacation Bible School and I have made sure to pack a lunch everyday and not cave into grabbing a smoothie or Chipotle while we are out (Although yesterday I came close.)
I love SUMMER SALADS! They by far are my favorite kind. To be honest, I get sick of salads and I have to mix it up. One of my favorites is this tuna one. I just put a half can of tuna, strawberries, apples, walnuts, and balsamic vinegar and enjoy.
We just got a Yogurtland in town and the Hubby and I have already been twice this month!! We may need to not drive anywhere near it for a while.
Another guilty pleasure are these Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares! I may or may not have one every day of the year.
Tuesday nights we love to go to the TACO SHACK and State Street Winery. It’s only $1 for some pretty amazing tacos and $4 for a glass of wine. That’s my kind of dinner!
For breakfast RJ and I love these easy three ingredient pancakes, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of oats, and 1 banana all mixed up and cooked on the skillet. RJ is obsessed with eggs, so I have been enjoying them a lot lately.
I am telling ya, the SEXY SALADS are out of control!
Last month was a lot of grilling out on the back patio and I am sure this month will be the same. I look forward to more smoothies, sexy salads, fresh grilled veggies, and fish. I love having a little more time to make dinner these days and I have a few recipes up my sleeve that are coming soon!
Question: What is your favorite thing to eat in the summer? Mine is FRUIT FOR SURE!
