Breakfasts

I enjoyed a good variety of breakfasts this week – with delicious summery fruits!

First up was scrambled eggs with leftover pancakes from the weekend and a nice nectarine. Aren’t nectarines nice?! I’m planning to do a scrambled egg video soon – just gotta find time when Matt is around to film!

This granola-covered bowl of yogurt featured blueberries and blackberries. The granola is our blueberry buckwheat granola from Great Harvest. By the way, I have had a few people ask me if you can still buy our granolas. You can always order anything directly from Matt by calling him at the store, 434-202-7813. He often ships granola to blog readers this way!

This lovely bowl was a cup of Snowville Creamery yogurt with peach, berries and sunbutter on top. Orange juice on the side. I sure love OJ for breakfast! Just a swig or two. I brought home a bottle from our beach trip and have been sipping away.

Next up – the overnight oats feature at the top of this post. Packed with oats, milk, yogurt, berries and granola served in a Barney Butter jar.

And finally, this smoothie made with spinach, banana, raspberry, milk and flax and topped with more of the crunch.

Lunches

On the lunch front, I had a No Bull Burger with melted cheddar on top with goat feta, leftover roasted veggies and mixed greens underneath.

I had a friend over for lunch and made us grilled cheeses with tomatoes and cheddar, arugula salads and berries. YUM!

Another lunch salad, this time with smoked trout (from our farmer’s market), tomatoes from the garden, goat feta, hard-boiled egg and greens.

And finally, a salad with leftover salmon, leftover roasted veg and a mini quesadilla on a locally made corn tortilla with cheese melted in the middle.

Dinners

And the dinners! Just 2 to report since I was in and out of town and used one for another post. Somehow I always have more breakfasts and lunches then dinners. I think because they sneak in from the weekends!

My go-to “What do we make for dinner” meal is always spaghetti. We are still using up sauce we canned last year! Add in some whole wheat pasta and fresh veggies and you have a gourmet meal in minutes. This guy featured peppers, some chicken sausage and parmesan cheese on top.

This dinner rocked – we grilled salmon smothered in some BBQ sauce served with grilled pepper, zucchini and corn. A little wine to spice up the weeknight!

Happppy Week!

Love the idea of smothering salmon in some good BBQ sauce. I usually just grill it with a little olive oil and lemon but I need to break out of a food rut.

Must get my hands on some smoked trout! I’ve only just been reintroduced to sea trout and love it! Do you have different varieties there? Our’s is bright orange/red like salmon…so good!

I would guess this is a fresh water trout but I’m not 100% sure

I’m trying to eat as many peaches and nectarines as I can before the season ends. It feels like summer went by way too quickly!

Looks yummy! Wondering though why you serve everything in one bowl? I’m not sure I would want a quesadilla on my salad, haha.

Is the buckwheat granola gluten-free? Having it shipped is very tempting!

Unfortunately no

Yumm, I love all your food pics! My husband just got back from a fishing trip on Lake Michigan and I am now the proud owner of an 11 pound rainbow trout and a 22 pound king salmon! Plan on making some of your recipes…:)

All of your food looks lovely :)

I thought you said ‘Happy Weekend!’ so for a second I got really excited – then I realized that tomorrow is Thursday…almost there!

A scrambled eggs video would be nice, but I’m thinking more frittata!

Where do you get your dinnerware from?! I love those spoons and bowls!

I have been super unmotivated lately for meal times. Same old, same old. I have some yummy ideas now.

Just BBQ sauce on salmon? YUM

23 Mary Legare Whaley August 30, 2014 at 9:37 pm

Yum. This is a full day of delicious. And a “real” grilled cheese is the best. I love a grilled cheese with mozz, tomatoes, and something green. I’ve made a little caprese grilled cheese which is super tasty. I channeled my inner “Top Chef”….but it’s so simple. =) Have a great weekend girl! =)

I recently tried smoked trout and sardines for the first time because of your blog. I liked both, but I am really loving the smoked trout! So delicious and nutritious. I am diabetic so low carb meals are important for me. The smoked trout and sardines come in a can and are so easy to pack for work. Makes a great addition to a salad for lunch! Thanks Kath for the ideas!
