Hey guys, happy Friday! It’s been quite the week over here. One of those weeks where you’re slaying all week and not prioritizing sleep. Didn’t even get many homemade meals in this week. I used to stress about that stuff, but no need to anymore. That’s life. Each week is different and you just gotta adapt, ya know?
Pssst – have you entered the FREE giveaway yet? It’s open for a few more days! Thanks to all of you who provided some feedback about what you like and what you want to see more of on the blog. That helps me so much to make sure I’m providing content that you guys like and want to read. I love all of your comments, too, so if you’re on the fence about commenting, feel free to email me privately (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Okay, let’s look back at the week and some favorites.
I love this picture of Ed and Tater. He took her to the beach for a few days a few weeks ago (I couldn’t go because of work stuff) and it makes me smile.
Campfire S’mores Ice Cream
You are probably aware of how much I love ice cream. My usual go to’s are cookies and cream or cookie dough. But, s’mores is a really close 3rd. It’s actually my favorite Kilwin’s flavor. We had gotten this flavor a few weeks ago (may be out of season now), and boy is it DELICIOUS.
This is a new book that was recommended to me in one of the dietitian facebook groups I’m in. Like I’m sure many people can relate, I get so excited about starting projects and things, but it’s sometimes hard to stick through it till the end. I even do this with books! I have 3 started on my nightstand and not finished. Guilty.
Now, I’m being held accountable by sharing this with you guys. I’m 2/3 of the way through and enjoying this book so far. Basically, he talks about finding ways to make your goals fun (otherwise, why would you finish?) and some other totally doable changes of mindset that really help!
I came across this little library bookshare on the greenway I frequent. I never really noticed it before, but I’ll have to bring a book and check one out next time. How cute is it?!
I had the chance to go to a popular restaurant in Charlotte this week with some colleagues to talk about an upcoming exciting project I hope to share more about soon. I walked away full as a balloon but we had so many goodies. My favorites were the skillet corn bread with molasses, and the fried chicken with truffle mac n cheese. I couldn’t eat all of it (wanted to save room for dessert) but the leftovers made dinner the following night easy.

Around the Web
Admittedly, I wasn’t great at gathering articles from around the web for you this week.
25 Creative Ways to use Leftovers via Kara Lydon –> We can all use this, right? I love the kale and squash pita pizza and enchilada quinoa bake ideas!
The veggie van –> An ice cream truck for veggies. Love it!
Diet Chatter –> I love Kylie’s water colors.
Any fun weekend plans? I have a coffee date with a friend, and will be watching the Patriots/Panthers game on Sunday!
