Tasty Tidbits

We had our first winter campfire last Sunday night! It was a gorgeous day with the perfect temps for it. And the rain even held off until we were almost done.
I missed having campfires. It's so relaxing to feel the warmth, watch the sparks, & spend time together.


And the when we looked around, there was still snow! So fun!

This weekend, we won't be quite so lucky...but that's ok. I'm not quite ready for winter to end, although this frigid cold is a bit much. I'm tired of sweaters. 

Happy weekending!

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

  • Strawberry banana peanut butter smoothies
  • Veggie & egg sandwiches on rye bread
  • Sunflower seed coconut granola
  • Baked oatmeal with vanilla cashew butter
  • Ashley's Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins - These were fantastic! It was perfect, because the recipe makes 2, so we didn't have tons of muffins around getting stale before we got to them all (although I do often freeze half the batch). Plus we were eating chocolate for breakfast, which is a win!
  • Bananas + pb
  • Twice baked potatoes with green salad
  • Pickled beets
  • Sandwiches
  • Leftovers
  • Grapefruit, oranges, apples & clementines

  • Vegetable stir-fry with brown rice
  • Green salad

First campfire cookout of the year!
  • Pizza mountain pie sandwiches
  • Veggie foil packets (onions, mushrooms, zucchini, & Brussels sprouts)
  • Apron Strings' One Pot Wonder Thai Peanut Pasta - This was super easy to make & it was delicious; super creamy with lots of flavor! I think next time I'd add more carrots & peppers, just cause I like lots of veggies, but the sauce was spot on.
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Green salad
Dinner at Mom & Pops' before choir
  • Broccoli & wild rice casserole
  • Green salad

  • Grilled Portobello caps
  • Glazed carrots
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Green salad

  • S'mores over the campfire - We tried a new organic chocolate bar that had chopped hazelnuts in it. It was soooo good!
  • Ashley's Chocolate Peanut Butter Creamy Chia Pudding - I've tried chia pudding in the past, but it was never blended. I much prefer it blended! Plus this was a healthy treat that didn't taste healthy at all - bonus!
  • Tasty Yummies No-Bake Smore’s Energy Bites - These were the perfect snack! Sweet, but still healthy, with lots of omega-3s from the walnuts.
  • Anise & peach schnapps pizzelles
  • Trader Joe's Sipping Chocolate
