Tasty Tidbits

This sunrise was totally worth waking up for! It's been super hot lately, so when Wed. morning was a mere 70 degrees, I decided it was the perfect day to roller blade. I just got new wheels & they're super smooth, which makes it that much more fun of a work out. Six miles before 7am with gorgeous skies!

We were at a family picnic last weekend & W spent a lot of time playing horseshoes. I played for about half a game, but aside from some bizarre twist of the luck where I got a ringer, my other throws were pretty bad.

This is W's birthday weekend, so we're at the cabin to relax & celebrate. It's been waaaaay too long since we were up there!

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

  • Sandwiches
  • Leftovers
  • Kale soup
  • Mega salads - lettuce, beet greens, roasted sweet potato, beets, onion, almonds, & peaches dressed with peanut sauce
  • Peaches, watermelon & plums

Family picnic!
  • Spaghetti salad with cucumbers & red peppers
  • Orzo with almonds, feta, kalamata olives, & dill
  • Easy Three Bean Salad (I brought this.)
  • Italian pasta salad
  • Guacamole & tortilla chips
  • Watermelon, blueberries, & strawberries
  • Corn on the cob
  • Green salad

  • Pierogies sauteed with onions, zucchini, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, & fresh basil
  • Grilled tofu dogs
  • Grilled green beans with lemon & seasoned sea salt
  • Grilled hot peppers with Trader Joe's Merlot soaked cheese
  • Green salad
  • Cucumbers & carrots with dip
  • Blueberries
  • Oat pretzels with Top with Cinnamon's Healthy 3-ingredient Chocolate Fudge Sauce - This is SO good. I knew we would love it, so I doubled the recipe from the start. We've been putting it on rice cakes, graham crackers, & fruit. And our fingers & spoons...
  • (So this wasn't much of a dinner...we both had a big lunch & weren't in the mood for a full-on dinner.)

  • Minimalist Baker's Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream - I used chocolate almond milk & put peanut butter swirl in this instead of the brownies the recipe called for. It turned out super chocolatey. Plus it was quick & easy to make. Yum!
  • Brittany's Chia Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies - I could eat these as a dessert or a breakfast. They're very good! Not quite oatmeal raisin cookie type texture, but similar!
  • Healthy blueberry crisp - blueberries topped with oats, cinnamon, & honey, baked until bubbly
