I know this post is behind schedule (and I swear, I really am going to share all of the tasty things we ate at the end of our trip!) but the first week back at work after a vacation always feels so looooong. It doesn’t help that the poor puppy is sick – and it really doesn’t help that he is on 2 weeks of a twice-daily medication, in addition to his twice daily seizure medication! No matter, he has the fuzziest face on Earth and I wouldn’t trade him for the world.
Here are some of the eats from the week that I wouldn’t trade either…
A double-strength batch of Community Coffee French Roast served over ice with Hint of Honey Almond Milk.
Halvah yogurt bowls
Plain Greek yogurt with crumbled marble halvah mixed in and juicy summer fruit on the side.
Spinach pesto on everything
Mixed with shredded chicken and bow tie pasta (my mom and aunt always serve pesto with bow ties so that’s how I do it too!).
Next to really amazing salads topped with turkey bacon dressing and balsamic roasted grapes.
And mixed with shredded chicken atop a truly epic toasted cheese sandwich.
Chipotle, again, always
For dinner I improved the rice-veggie ratio by serving my bowl on a big bed of arugula dressed with bbq sauce.
And the leftovers made for the most exciting lunch I’ve ever packed.
I am so ready for the weekend!
