Tasty Tidbits

Last weekend, we attended a wine festival in Harrisburg with some friends. It was fun & a great way to relax on a Saturday evening. We sampled a variety of wines & bought one to have with my mom's bday dinner.

There was a neat covered bridge to walk across that had a sign saying to make a wish & it will come true once you cross. So of course we had to do it!


We got some fun pictures before crossing. Cheers!

Apparently I didn't get the "wear a dress" memo. :-)

I did, however, wear my Toms. Have you tried these? They're super light weight, perfect for walking around in the summer. Plus, they actually have some cushion & arch support! I'm in love & want more. Maybe a more colorful pair! I also love that when I buy a pair, they have One for One movement in which they give a pair to a child in need. So cool!!

We're headed down to Valley Forge for some biking & dinner this weekend. It's supposed to be gorgeous sunny weather. Enjoy your weekends - get outside!!

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:

  • Pineapple yogurt with Strawberry Almond Coconut Granola
  • Puffed millet & puffed rice cereal with unsweetened almond milk & strawberries
  • Oatmeal with peanut butter
  • Bananas

  • Sandwiches
  • Leftovers
  • Mega salad with snap peas, chickpeas, almonds, & strawberries - Our garden is producing lettuce that's out of control, so we're feasting on greens. Best time of the year!
  • Hummus with blue corn chips & carrots
  • Watermelon, pineapple, & strawberries
Winefest with friends, then out to dinner on the way home
  • Mama Pea's Strawberry Avocado Salsa with organic seasoned tortilla chips, crackers & cheese, & fruit salad (at winefest)
  • Grilled veggie panini (me)
  • Gnocchis with tomato sauce (Bup)

  • Stir fried rice with snap peas - Similar to this, but with The Heat is On Peanut Butter in the mix. Have you tried that pb? It's great for making peanut sauce & mixing into stir fries. Be warned, though - it's quite spicy!
  • Green salad
  • Grilled tempeh with Ashley's Rhubarb BBQ Sauce - We're loving this bbq sauce. It was surprisingly easy to make & it's full of flavor.
  • Grilled zucchini with cashew cheese
  • SpoonForkBacon's Roasted Radishes - I read about these & had to try them right away. Roasting takes that sting out of the radish, but they were still crunchy. So good!
  • Green salad
  • Mega salads - lettuce with roasted sweet potato cubes, leftover roasted radishes, almonds, mushrooms, spring onions, & strawberries, drizzled with balsamic vinegar
Mom & Pops over for Mom's bday
  • Sourdough cornmeal tortillas
  • Black bean taco filling
  • Salsa, guacamole, cheddar cheese & shredded cabbage
  • Green salad
  • Lime birthday cake
  • Mega salads - lettuce with chickpeas, cashew cheese, leftover roasted radishes, almonds, mushrooms, spring onions, & strawberries, drizzled with balsamic vinegar

  • Lemon poppyseed blueberry cake - Mom made this for a picnic & shared a few slices of the leftovers. It was delicious!
  • Strawberry shortcake topped with fresh strawberries & Angela's Coconut Whipped Cream
