Sup, y’all!? I hope you guys are having a great day. I don’t know how you can’t be. I mean, it’s Wednesday (i.e., the best day of the week), which also means it’s WIAW. YAY!
*Please remember that these are a few of the things I ate this week – not the only things! Let’s get started.
One of my breakfasts this week was an apple and PB wafflewich. It was delicious. Thinly sliced apples are a perfect addition to perfectly toasted waffles spread with creamy PB. Is your mouth watering yet?! Good! Go make this…like now!
This past weekend, I headed to CT for a couple of nights to visit my aunts. The last time I was there I made a mixed veggie pasta bake with homemade pesto. It was so popular with my family that they requested I make it again. Who am I to deny them?
All I did was sauté some garlic, onions, yellow squash, and fresh spinach in some olive oil. I added a few spices – S&P, garlic powder, crush red pepper, and Italian seasoning and mixed well. I then combined this mixture with some cooked pasta and a jarred sauce. After spreading in a baking dish, I topped it off with some chopped tomatoes, black olives, and cheese. We were so hungry that as soon as the cheese melted, my cousins and I dug in! SO GOOD!
While this may look like a bowl of refried beans with onions and avocado, it is way more than that. Well, the base is definitely Trader Joe’s refried beans (watered down a bit), but in the mix, I also added in some cheddar, salsa, chili powder, and garlic powder. There is nothing quite like a bowl of beans – yes, a bowl of beans!
The best was definitely saved for last. In my opinion, fresh cherries are the epitome of summer. You can imagine how excited I was when I saw bags of them waiting for me as I entered the grocery store this past weekend. And they really were the perfect mix between sweet and tart – not like that fake, bottled junk.
Well, there you have it – some of my favorite weekly eats. Until next time, friends!
What food reminds you of summer?
