Food Highlights (and Disasters) from the Week

Hello everyone! How’s the week going for you? It’s been a busy one over here, and I’m trying to figure out if I like having a busy schedule or if I prefer things to slow down a bit. I think it’s a matter of embracing summer. The pace will change in the fall and I will be back to craving the nonstop summer activities, might as well enjoy it!

In terms of parenting, James seems to be in a much better mood when our days are filled with lots of running around. I’m guessing he’s an extravert, but it’s probably too early to tell. Either way, I appreciate a happy baby so we’ve been on the move. That means less time for cooking and food photography which is why I titled my post highlights AND disasters. I’m not too impressed with the overall look of this past week’s eats. I’ve also been super lazy about meal planning and grocery shopping, just trying to ease up on myself and let this be a season of less structure and more spontaneity.

Without further ado let’s take a look at our eats from the week!

I didn’t realize that burgers don’t photograph well until looking at this photo. I so wish we had a grill, because nothing beats a grilled burger in the summer, and a burger on the stovetop just isn’t as juicy.

Date night BBQ at Limp Lizard! YUM. Thursday night has become date night and I look forward to it every week! It’s so nice to spend quality time with my husband every week, and it makes the craziness all of the other days more tolerable.

We can’t go a week without some kind of pancake. Especially when there are spotted bananas to use up. I always use overripe bananas to make these blender banana oat pancakes, they are just too easy (and delicious)!

A Caprese panini gone sideways. Hello Trader Joe’s focaccia, thank you for taking this panini to the next level.

Yup. This was breakfast for James one morning. And it was even easier than it looks because the peanut butter graham cracker sandwiches were leftover from Josiah’s lunch the day before.

I can’t with this donut disaster the other night. Glazed and Confused, your donuts tasted as bad as they looked in this photo. I’m sorry, but EVERY other donut I’ve eaten blows these ones out of the park. For being a specialty donut shop, I’m disappointed. Great job on your social media, but the donut recipes need work.

This salad had EVERYTHING in it! In fact, it was impossible to capture a photo with all of the toppings because they just kept getting buried. I love endless toppings on a salad especially when the combination actually tastes good too!

Who doesn’t want to dive in to a big plate of nachos?! Sign me up! I always overeat on meals like this, it’s just too hard not to!

Question of the Day: What are your favorite summer meals and/or snacks?

Have a great Thursday! Talk to you soon ๐Ÿ™‚


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, Iโ€™m glad youโ€™re here!

    1. I trust your tastebuds Sam, maybe we just got the wrong flavors?! French toast does sound really good, I won’t totally write off the company ๐Ÿ™‚
