The past few weeks have felt like a bit of a whirlwind, but things are finally getting back to normal over here. We spent our long Labor Day weekend visiting Washington state with some friends, celebrating our little guy’s first birthday. We both enjoyed our very first ferry ride to Seattle!
Of course, we were welcomed back to reality when our apartment’s central air conditioning broke this morning… for the fourth time this summer. We’re cursed!
It’s a good thing it’s only going to be 100-degrees this weekend. Yikes! I see lots of cooling foods in our immediate future, but for now, I’ll share what we had yesterday, before our home became a sauna.
I made a big batch of Pumpkin Seed Granola this past weekend, for an easy breakfast option, but I forgot how addicting it is. I’ve had it every single morning this week!
I started my lunch off with a romaine salad topped with cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, goat cheese, and homemade honey dijon dressing. That was followed up with 2 eggs scrambled with spinach.
I haven’t had the motivation to make juice in the morning like I used to, so it’s become a nice mid-afternoon snack lately. This one included cucumber, collard greens, green apple, lemon, and ginger.
Austin and I each had our own roasted sweet potato, topped with sauteed veggies and sliced avocado.
To finish off the night, we had Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshakes. They are our favorite summer treat!
