Let’s face it, I’m a mom. And some days, I just don’t feel like making an elaborate meal. Whether that be for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. Sometimes, I just wanna slap some shit on toast and call it a day. Ya feel me? Raising a toddler can be exhausting at times and, sometimes, I just don’t have it in me to “do it all”. That my friends, is exactly where this Avocado Toast comes into play. Most of the time you see Avocado toast being eaten for breakfast or brunch. But it’s definitely more than an just AM grub in my household. I can literally eat this toast for any meal of the day, and maybe even a heavy snack given the opportunity. It’s so quick, super fresh, almost no cook,and most importantly, healthy.
Happy Sunday Ya’ll! Did anyone do anything fun this weekend? Oliver and I had a super chill weekend and stayed home for most of it. It’s been pretty rainy and dreary all day with not much to do. However, I did make this beautiful Blueberry Angel Food Cake which just screams SUMMER. I couldn’t let blueberry season come to an end without creating something with fresh blueberries just one more time. Don’t get me wrong, I have frozen A LOT, and I love making syrups and jams, but something about the burst of a fresh picked blueberry in your mouth is something you can’t experience in the winter. Sure, you can still find blueberries, but they tend to be underripe and let’s face it, extremely over priced.
Mediterranean-Style Toast. Happy Tuesday ya’ll! Tuesday’s are currently the start to my work week and I can’t say I’m mad about it. If COVID has done any good in my life, it’s allowed me to have a three day weekend with my little nugget. This past weekend Oliver has been teething like no other, so we’ve laid low and enjoyed lots of snuggles, naps, and youtube videos. Dear lord, a lot of youtube videos. Does anyone else’s kid love to watch the same exact video on repeat for as long as you’ll let it slide? Like, really? You don’t wanna switch it up and watch Mickey Mouse or Puppy Dog Pals? You really just wanna watch the same exact thing over.. and over…and over again..?
Loaded Sweet Potatoes. Happy Friday ya’ll! I feel like the weekends are totally meant for the “treat yo self” mentality. You’re finally free of work (hopefully), you’ve made fun plans to do something, whether thats to see friends, have a night out or to just relax and enjoy life. Unfortunately for us going out and having fun, isn’t an option right now due to the global pandemic. We’ve had to become really creative in what we can do around the house. Puzzles, bingeing Netflix, painting, and of course LOTS of cooking.
Bacon, Egg & Cheddar Biscuit Sammy. Good Morning and happy Sunday ya’ll! I don’t know about you guys but I am totally missing going to brunch during this pandemic. Sometimes I truly feel there is nothing better than a Sunday morning brunch. Or a brunch on any day for that matter. Hungover? Brunch. Cute photo op? Brunch. Don’t know what time or day it is? BRUNCH. Is “Brunching” a hobby? Because if it is, it’s probably one of my favorites.
