I’ve got food on the brain today, to be more specific we’re talking about grilled cheese and how to improve the standard! I’m sure everyone has their own grilled cheese hacks or tricks but I’m sharing my 5 favorite ones here on the blog.
When a long weekend approaches, my mind automatically switches into food mode. I think of all the wonderful things we might make in the kitchen over the weekend or I think about finding a new restaurant to try. But once the weekend ends and the indulging is over, I try to reset back into healthy mode especially as we head into fall.
Mr. W & I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend at home for the first time in a while and I’ll be the first to admit it was full of food adventures. We blackberry picked, visited a few farmer’s markets, went to our own local fruit stand and even made our first summer dessert crumble that was heavily consumed over said weekend. We also worked in the garden while the sun shined and I realized my basil plant was overrun with fresh basil!
Almost everyone we know is busy. Busy with school, work, kids, family, commuting, sports…the list goes on and a busy week usually includes hectic schedules. While Mr. W and I don’t have a crazy schedule to adhere to, we do find our nights fill up fast with different appointments, dinners and plans. Because of this, I started doing some meal planning for the two of us as it ensures we will have a homemade meal and instantly takes the pressure off when it comes to the big question, “What’s for dinner?”
Do you ever have those days where you crave nothing but baked goods like cookies, bread or pie? This is a craving that erupts in our house every so often and when it does it usually means one thing: Time to bake! It just so happened to be an extra rainy Sunday and we had just gotten back from a long walk and brunch, the next logical step was to eat more food. Now, we have been trying to be more health conscious since the new year, so I wanted a quick and easy recipe that wouldn’t kill us in the calorie department and one that wouldn’t take too long.
This cantaloupe yogurt fruit bowl makes for the perfect breakfast, anytime of the week. We enjoyed this on a Sunday morning which made it that much better. As I have mentioned on the blog before, I am currently on a 3 week diet with my partner Brandon. We are officially a week in as of Thursday and so far it hasn’t been easy.
We wrapped up Christmas this week at West 5th and finished our holiday’s by ringing in the new year! Now it’s time to develop some healthy water habits and start the new year off right.
