We are livin’ up summer over here! Remind me of this post in the dead of winter. From pool trips to vacations to amazing berries, peaches, watermelon and tomatoes, this is my favorite time of year. (With pumpkin beer season and crisp fall afternoons a close second!) Winter and spring, I got no love for ya. Well, maybe a little Christmas excitement, but Christmas feels more like an extension of fall!
On with the summer fruit!
Yogurt (Snowville Creamery – totally hooked) with Naturebox PB&J granola, blueberries and one of the first peaches of the season. YUM!
Next up we have berries with a hearty slice of Cville Crunch toast topped with homemade blackberry jam and Wild Friends maple sunflower butter. Simple but delish.
Pancakes with blueberries, banana and coconut butter that hadn’t quite melted yet. Special day! Mazen LOVE “cakes” for breakfast.
Yogurt with berries and drippy sunflower butter and a leftover pancake. Plus DINOSAUR TRAIN!
Do you guys still like hearing about my workouts? I didn’t take notes last week because I wasn’t at the gym much with my parents here. Mom and I went one day and did cardio stuff (I did small group) and the next day we did tons of walking. I had two back-to-back soccer games on Thursday and Friday nights that totally wore me out! We won one and lost one. Two days in a row was really hard – but that’s a great sign that I made the most of my time on the field!
Salad with mom at the Lovingston Café on the way back from Hillsborough. It was packed with greens, their famous smoked trout, cranberries, mandarin oranges and the best candied walnuts!
How’s this for a summery salad? Avocado, heirloom tomato, mozzarella cheese and salt and pepper. Plus a little homemade dressing. My favorite lately is apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil and salt.
BBQ lunch with my parents from Smoked BBQ & Co! The best! His mac and cheese is the best in town!
Leftover pasta salad on top of a salad. With a slice of Popeye bread with buttah!
The last lunch in the group was at Eppie’s!
First up: a simple salmony dinner with mom the night we got home. I baked some maple soy salmon and sautéed broccoli and zucchini on the side.
Our next night we went to Citizen Burger Bar! Love this sign.
Raise your hand if you like French fries! Mom taught him to raise his hand practicing for preschool.
Matt and I shared the AMAZING beet salad with berries, candied nuts and goat cheese. Plus a big order of sweet potato fries in the background! I ate way too many – they are amazing! Best SP fries ever.
And mom and I shared this uber-rare burger (too rare for me but that’s how mom likes it!). FIY, that’s ketchup oozing out… I couldn’t finish it because I ate too much salad and fries!
My stomach made room though because for dessert I had the world’s smallest ice cream from Splendora’s
Other dinners included date night and this pasta salad with a recipe coming soon!
Hope y’all are having a summery week!
