Food Highlights from the Week: July 2021

Hey hey hey! How’s it going? Coming at you late again this afternoon with some food highlights from the week. I say that blogging is my creative outlet, but I find so much pleasure in creating beautiful meals. I’ll link as many recipes as I can so that you can join in on the cooking fun!

My favorite lunch of all times. Especially when these charcuterie spreads include donuts, I mean…

James couldn’t resist the donuts either.

Gotta love a mix-and-match sandwich combo. I’m all about trying a little bit of everything. If anyone wants to share multiple dishes with me, yes please. For lunch on this particular day we did half tuna salad and half turkey, salami, ham and cheese. You never get bored this way!

Trader Joe’s can you just stop being so good! Seriously, this is the best cereal EVER! Especially if you’re a cereal snacker, I usually just eat this cereal by the handful without milk and it’s perfect. Reasonably healthy too!

Honey-lime chicken enchiladas with black bean and corn salad. These required little effort. I put the chicken breasts in the crockpot, covered them in the marinade, cooked on high for 2 hours, shredded the chicken, mixed in the cheese and filled the tortillas. For the green enchilada sauce on top, I bought a jar from Wegmans because I was feeling lazy. I loosely followed this recipe for the black bean salad, added cilantro and quartered cherry tomatoes, and it came together in a breeze. All about quick and easy this summer!

Finally a breakfast that isn’t a pancake! So refreshing to eat something different. Major love for cinnamon raisin toast over here, so glad to have it on this week’s breakfast rotation.

This meal was perfectly simple yet incredibly satisfying meal. It was a honey lemon garlic salmon, and I mixed some of the extra marinade in to the couscous before serving alongside roasted broccoli and this roasted tomato and parmesan focaccia from Trader Joes’s. You’re killing me TJ’s. When am I going to work there? When will I be sponsored? Ha!

Thanks Ambitious Kitchen for a healthy treat to indulge in this week! These homemade peanut butter twix bars turned out great! I made them last Saturday, and they’re still good thanks to fridge storage. Don’t mind the chocolate on my hands in the picture!

I hope everyone is wrapping up their week on a good note! TGIF tomorrow!

Talk to you soon ๐Ÿ™‚
