Hey friends, happy Friday. I hope you’ve had a good week and possibly have some fun and/or relaxing plans for the weekend.
Just popping in today to share some fun and tasty meals we’ve had the past few weeks. Hopefully they can provide you with some inspiration!

So, in no particular order….

Pizza from the grocery store. We just got cheese and I added some veggies from home. We went and enjoyed it outside in a pretty part of the neighborhood.

My ideal summer meal! Corn on the cob, grilled barbecue chicken, a baked potato and some veggies. We enjoyed this on the back porch and it brought back so many memories from my childhood.

This was one of my favorite family meals growing up, and if you read Wednesday’s post, you know that nostalgia ties into food satisfaction!

A salad with tomato chickpeas, raspberries, strawberries, and chicken salad on a kaiser roll. So so good. Kaiser rolls are my favorite right now.

Made a honey soy marinade with some shrimp, paired over instant pot white rice.

And a broccoli slaw kit we got from Wegman’s this week! I typically buy one salad kit each week,

The best part of recipe testing is eating the recipes! I made these peach crisp donuts this week and then ate two as soon as I took the photos. The crisp/crumble topping is absolutely delicious.

Another recipe I tested this week – these quinoa pizza bites/meatballs. These are SO GOOD. I originally tested them thinking they would be great for toddler snacks, but to be honest, they are fabulous for adults too!

Hope to have this up next week to share with you. We paired it with kale and some macaroni!

Snack plates! We did this for dinner one night – a little bit of what we had left in the fridge before heading grocery shopping.

Breakfast one morning – cherries, a bagel with half cream cheese and half peanut butter and some egg muffins with veggies. I made these for meal prep.

The recipe I followed was okay, but I find that I want them to be heartier, so I think I want to add breadcrumbs or flour or something. The egg batter isn’t satisfying enough for me, if that makes sense.

Anyone have any good egg muffin recipes?

Lunch one day. Greens with pumpkin seeds and tomatoes, a kaiser roll with avocado and grape tomatoes, cheese and crispy bacon, and some crunchy dill chips.

I would eat this lunch on repeat if I could.

We also made kale chips one night that Camryn LOVED. Who knew they would be a hit with toddlers?
