Food Highlights from the Weekend

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? I’ll share a few highlights from ours below, but as I edit this post I’m realizing that I didn’t take any photos of the activities we did just the food we ate. I am a work in progress here in the blogging field. But if your interested in some food highlights keep on reading! I linked all of the recipes too in case you’d like to give them a try!

Pancakes topped with Greek yogurt and peaches for James and I to kick off the weekend! We live by the rule, a pancake a day keeps the doctor away.

Naan pizzas for lunch! One was a simple cheese and pepperoni while the other was a roasted buffalo cauliflower. I was originally going to make my own flatbread, but store bought naan came to the rescue instead!

Pizza paired with a side salad of course because #balance. If you’re looking for an italian dressing that tastes homemade but comes together in 2 minutes or less, we love the Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix.

Sally’s chocolate chip cookies to bring over to a neighbor, Josiah’s family, and of course ourselves πŸ™‚

James enjoying a banana muffin as an afternoon snack. When he wakes up from a nap cranky, there’s nothing like a muffin to turn his mood around.

Hello Trader Joe’s mini cone, don’t you look familiar! Seriously guys 10/10.

Moroccan-spiced turkey burgers with lettuce, tomato, avocado and creamy feta sauce. I like to get experimental with burgers, usually in the summer. Turkey burgers tend to be tricky because they dry out easily. I liked the flavor of this burger, but the texture was a little off. I might have overcooked it?

The easiest sheet pan gnocchi with italian bread olive oil, balsamic, and herbs. This is my go-to dinner recipe when I want to make something homemade but also don’t want to put any effort into cooking. 5 minutes of prep and into the oven it goes!

Question of the day: What is your favorite meal or sweet treat from the weekend?

I hope everyone has a great start to the week! We’ll talk soon πŸ™‚

Hi I'm Rae and I am a pastor's wife and mom to our one year old son James. I recently started blogging as a way to share my recovery journey from an eating disorder, as well as married life, motherhood, food, and faith. Hop along for the ride, I’m glad you’re here!

  1. I am loving the food pictures! After seeing your daily pancakes I almost went and bought some mix so I can join in, they look so good 😍 We have this naan recipe that is super easy, so good and we can keep the dough in the fridge for weeks. We can also use the same dough for artisan loaves, we used to have a fresh loaf or naan with dinner every night πŸ˜‚ I even make it in the van (in smaller quantities) to use for naan

    1. You should definitely hop on the pancake train! I feel like that would be a realistic van breakfast! Have you just been doing yogurt mostly? Ummm ok, you have to share that recipe!! We eat bread almost every night too but I’ve been lazy lately with making it homemade.
