WIAW: Definition of Summer

12 Jul

Happy Wednesday! I feel like I say that at the beginning of every post but a day when I have some time to blog is a happy day 🙂 Today I’m sharing a smorgasbord of different meals and drinks that I have enjoyed so far this summer. Between our fantastic CSA (which I plan to cover in a future post) and farmers market trips, we have definitely been embracing summer foods.

Maggie mcflys tuna salad

Quite possibly one of my favorite salads ever, the Ahi Tuna salad from Maggie McFly’s 

Cheese plate bday

I had to show off my favorite lobster cutting board. This cheese plate is from my birthday celebration 🙂

birthday cake 2017

Alex made me this wonderful birthday cake too!

engagement party chipotle

Dan’s cousins engagement party was catered by Chipotle which is the best idea ever

Stony creek beer

We visited Stony Creek Brewery on my birthday and it was the perfect day!

birthday lobster

My birthday dinner request was a lobster roll so Dan bought a few lobsters and made them for us!

Apps brian and natasha

This past Friday we had Brian and Natasha over for dinner. We enjoyed fresh salsa from Fairweather Acres along with homemade guac and some cheese and crackers. I love me some apps!

Caprese salad

I also made a caprese salad with tomatoes from our CSA, fresh mozz, and basil from our garden

brian and natasha dinner

Our dinner included a little bit of everything: grilled chicken, steak, kielbasa, potatoes, squash, broccoli, and the caprese salad

buffalo chicken wrap

Dan had a prior commitment on Monday night so I was on my own for dinner. I made Brittany’s buffalo chicken wrap along with a salad consisting of tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh mozz, and basil.  

burrito bowl

Dan had another meeting last night so I made myself a burrito bowl with quinoa, chicken, black beans, corn, avocado, green onion, salsa, and plain greek yogurt. It was delish!

That’s all for today folks! I’m ready to tackle the rest of this week and relax as much as possible this weekend 🙂 Have a great rest of the week!

Feeling Like a Winner & Stepping into Summer Reveal

28 Jun

Happy Tuesday! I’m excited to finally be feeling like myself again as that cold/allergies knocked me on my butt for the last few weeks. Even though I haven’t been feeling too hot, I have still managed to rally and have a TON of summer fun, hence the title of this post.

Last Monday, I came home feeling awful but was very excited to find a package from the lovely Meg waiting for me! I had participated in her “Stepping Into Summer Swap Reveal” which included a sandal swap and I was paired up with Meg! But not only were the sandals included in the package, but I found out that I had won her Southern Proper giveaway on her blog. It was a very nice surprise for a Monday. Thank you, Meg!

Southern Proper Sandals

I’m pretty sure I wore the sandals every single day this past weekend as they are SO versatile and comfy. Here’s a look at what I won from the Southern Proper giveaway:

Southern Proper Beach Towel

Southern proper coozy

Southern Proper Sunglasses2

Southern Proper Tote

We have been doing a lot of home-cooking lately and pretty much all of it has been on the grill since our kitchen is still filled with dust from the process of sanding the cabinets. We are absolutely loving it though, as grilling is one of our favorite things to do. Grilled pizza has been our specialty as of late, and last night we made a Grilled Prosciutto and Peach pizza topped with basil and truffle balsamic vinegar. It was incredible!

I hope you guys have a great Tuesday! I plan to be back again before the end of the week as my birthday is this coming Sunday and I took Friday off to celebrate.
