Grocery shopping with a toddler has the potential to become quite an adventure. But never in my life did I know how fun it could be until I had my first encounter with the mothership of all shopping carts. In case you are wondering, I am referring to one of these…
Now I have to admit, it was my idea for Harper to ride in the car but I had every high hope that it would make our shopping experience more enjoyable. WRONG! Well, I think Harper enjoyed the ride, but I couldn’t maneuver this thing worth a damn! I got stuck in the produce aisle and knocked over more bags of nuts and dried fruit than I am willing to admit. It was a bad scene. Pretty much looked like this…slightly embarrassing. So in the future, I am going to stay away…far, far, away!
But enough about my poor driving skills…let’s take a look at what has been making its way into my belly :)
Sweet Potato Pancakes with a side of Bacon
I recently picked up a bag of this pancake mix and now I am hooked! They don’t taste much different from regular pancakes but the consistency is far fluffier. They are delicious with a tiny bit of butter and a splash of pure maple syrup. Oh, and bacon of course :)
This is my new favorite obsession. I can’t get enough of it. The other day I ate 2 of them within hours of each other. The taste is so magical it takes me away to a deserted island. Seriously amazing.
Chicken Breast with Homemade Cherry Tomato Pesto (recipe coming later this week) topped with Shaved Parmesan Cheese
Today’s Photo A Day Challenge was to eat roasted veggies. And in my opinion, Brussels Sprouts are the best when roasted. Plus, they always get me in the mood for fall. I enjoyed them with a pan seared chicken breast topped with homemade cherry tomato pesto and parmesan cheese and a side of couscous. Delicious and satisfying.
Marinated Tri Tip with Brown Rice Medley and Sautéed Green Beans
Raw Veggies and Rice Crackers
Tonight was my monthly book club meeting. And the best part about book club, besides the awesome ladies I get to hang with, is the yummy food. And wine.
Even though there is one more week until Halloween, we will be begin our celebration this weekend. Our first event is this Friday and will be the big reveal of our costumes. Can’t wait to share with you :)
Have a great rest of the week and Happy WIAW!
