Lemon Tahini Dressing.

One of my favorite ways to ensure that I’m getting enough greens is by eating a BIG salad at least once a day (usually for dinner).  Recently I went through a I don’t want to eat salad phase (I blame pregnancy), so I was making a lot of green smoothies instead, but my anti-salad days are over and today, I’m excited to share my current favorite salad recipe with y’all.

Fried Zucchini Cakes

I recently started doing most of our grocery shopping at Aldi, and while I love how inexpensive it is, sometimes I’m not always happy with “how they do things.”  For starters, the store is set up a little strangely – the aisles are narrow and a lot of the items don’t really go together.  For example, the salad dressings are right next to the bread, and across from the produce.  I just find it odd.

Homemade Pizza Dough.

It’s been a tough week on the home-front…I haven’t been feeling my best – mostly just anxious, overwhelmed and achy.  My legs and feet are so swollen that I can barely fit into my shoes (thankfully we live in Florida, where shoes are not always a requirement).

On top of that, Buddy had surgery Tuesday and I was a mess! Nothing big, he just had his teeth cleaned and a few moles/masses removed, but the last time he was under anesthesia it didn’t go very well, so I was one worried momma.  I contemplated all day whether or not I had made the right decision by putting him under again, but his mouth has been very painful for awhile now, and the guilt I felt as I watched him suffer everyday outweighed my fears of another anesthesia.  Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck all morning…

Sweet Potato Chickpea BBQ Burgers. Veggie.

fullsizeoutput_1ae3

Do y’all ever have a craving for a big, juicy burger? 

I do.  ALL OF THE TIME. 

Only my burger cravings are of the meatless kind. 🙂 This might be boring for some, but nothing beats a good Veggie Burger IMO.  In fact, some of the best burgers I can remember eating have been meatless.

Don’t believe me?  Well, I’m here to change your mind.

Blueberry Smoothie.

CAUTION: The photographs for this post are terrible. I mean absolutely terrible. Please forgive me, I was famished when I made this recipe. On top of that, I’ve been super tired lately – soooo tired that the thought of dumping a smoothie into a pretty, glass mason jar seemed almost impossible.  Forgive me?  This baby is sucking the life out of me…

I know, I know, it’s only going to get worse…

Black Bean, Corn and Spinach Salad.

Happy New Year’s y’all! Wow. It’s so hard to believe it’s 2018! I don’t know about you, but 2017 was a pretty eventful year for me – our Costa Rica trip, engagement, wedding, pregnancy.  That’s a lot to fit into a single year, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It’s been an incredible trip around the sun, and I’m expecting the next one to be even better.

Does anyone have any resolutions this year?  I’ve never been BIG on resolutions, but there are a few things I’d like to attempt to do this year…

Ya know, like have a baby. 🙂
