With a couple of topical posts this week, I have some meals to share that slipped through the
First up – pancakes! We tucked blueberries inside and served ’em with grapes. I’m much more into butter on my pancakes than nut butters these days – go figure. Hot tea to drink!
Next up: a quick and easy salad in the greens container. Topped with smoked salmon, cheese and pine nuts.
We are on a Dijon-panko salmon kick, so we made that for dinner again. I buy big bags of frozen wild sockeye salmon at Whole Foods so we can thaw out a couple of pieces when we need them. On the side, Matt made a saute of local yellow squash and oyster mushrooms with turmeric and parsley for something different. Loved it!
Leftovers for lunch the next day -plus some chips!
Next up – last night’s dinner. Jeff came over and we made a big pan of nachos! Grilled corn and peppers plus cheese over chips.
We scooped canned refried beans and homemade guac on top. I also took photos of our guac recipe and will have that to you sometime next week!!
And finally, this morning’s breakfast. I went to Plyo Max at 6 – I can’t even tell you how much easier it is to get up for this class in the summer! I put the rest of our strawberries into a smoothie with homemade yogurt, milk, blueberries, ice and oats. Plus I had a PB&J roll on the side and coffee.
Have a great day guys!
Yum, all your meals look great! I especially love how the pancakes look!
Kath – would love to get your thoughts on the WF frozen salmon…I assume it’s good because you’re eating it 🙂 But, how good is it? I am often so skeptical of frozen fish!
It’s good! Frozen fish is sometimes even fresher than “fresh” because it’s flash frozen on the spot. I’d rather thaw it out and eat it right then than have fresh fish sit in my fridge for 24 hours between the time I get home from the grocery store and dinnertime the next day.

Kath, I’d love to know — do you think oatmeal will ever make its way back into your heart? I remember you being so into it, but I understand how you get into new things. I didn’t used to be into oatmeal, but ever since I got pregnant (31 weeks tomorrow!) I haven’t been able to get enough!
I still love it!! I think the biggest change is that it does require some standing in front of the stove and with a 2.5 year old that isn’t always my first choice for breakfast. Y’all know I was never one for microwaved oats ; ) While we do make it on the stove top one a week or so, it’s easier to whip up some eggs while M is eating toast and fruit or a smoothie together. I’m sure I’ll get back into it sometime!

Oh man! Those nachos! And those pancakes! If you ever open a restaurant I’m there!

We are on a huge salmon kick over here as well! We can’t get enough of just the plain ole salt, pepper, and creole seasoning for a kick. I’ll have to try the dijon-panko creation!
mary @ minutes per mile says
do you put the tops (leaves) of strawberries into your smoothies, or pick off the leaves/hull first? I’ve started going more “green” in my smoothies and find that you can’t taste the leaves!
I picked them off but that’s a good point!! Sure makes it easier.

those nachos are awesome!
I’m on a huge PB&J kick, so that roll looks divine!

On such a salmon kick lately! Wish it was easier to get wild salmon here, nothing compares to the wild salmon I got in Canada!
Ok dumb question- the nachos?!?!? I saw some nachos you guys made on your blog before and they just looked amazing to me. Do you just place all the chips on a pan and sprinkle all the toppings on them and bake them? Also, what cheese would you recommend for nachos like this? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks so much!!
Yup yup! Justbake for about 10 minutes at 350. We always use sharp cheddar
Haven’t had blueberry pancakes with butter! Will try when I get some grass-fed butter!
I’ve recently been more into butter than nut butter too… so good on blueberry pancakes!

Love the frozen sockeye salmon from whole foods. Nothing beats fresh fish, but these are so awesome to have around for a quick weeknight dinner!

I’m probably the biggest geek of the clean plate club. There is no leftovers when there’s good food, lol!
I would never have thought to use turmeric with yellow squash. What an adventurous palette you have, Kath! Come to think of it, I’m not sure what turmeric even tastes like on its own. I think I’ve only ever had it in spice blends like curries. Can you describe it? I’d love to know!

What kind of pancake mix is that?! 🙂
The Great Harvest pancake mix!
