Have you ever heard of potica? If not you’re missing out. It’s a Slovenian pastry/bread that’s a holiday tradition in Jon’s family. His dad surprised us on Easter by bringing us Easter leftovers, including some potica!
Last weekend I had a friend’s wedding to attend. I knew the night would be filled with food and drink so I wanted to start the day off healthy with one of my fav smoothies: 1 banana, 1 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp. almond butter.
One of my standard breakfasts…eggs, turkey sausage, avocado and yes ketchup. Does anyone else put ketchup on their eggs? I always have and love it, but Jon things it’s gross, ha!
I haven’t had much appetite in the morning lately so my breakfasts have been light. This one morning toast with Peanut Butter and Company’s Cinnamon Raisin sounded good to pair with my morning latte.
We’ve gotten into the habit of making our own oatmeal, but I’ve been craving instant oatmeal so I picked up a box. I like the texture better…I can never get my homemade version that smooth!
You can never go wrong with a hearty sandwich! And there’s avocado hiding under those tomatoes.
This was the same day as the wedding I attended. I wanted a healthy but filling lunch and didn’t have anything in the house…so Publix turkey sub it is! And those chips are one of my fav chip brands: Cape Cod. A new sweet chili flavor that was awesome!
Salad and soup is a favorite lunch of mine. Salad included chicken, spinach, beets and new goat cheese crumbles I found at Publix. I love love love Pacific brand soup. Their flavors are tasty and natural!
This was a Jon dish. Roasted chicken, roasted potatoes and roasted green beans. So simple, but oh so good.
Another yummy Jon dish! Chicken Parmesan with pesto angel hair and salad. The pesto was a gift from his sister who got it in Spain…SO good.
My friend Lora and I had a dinner date where we picked up food from Fresh Kitchen in Tampa. If you haven’t tried them yet you must! Their food is delicious and everything is healthy…it’s a great way to load up on protein and veggies.
This was what I picked up at Whole Foods one day after a long work day. Meatloaf, green beans and mashed potatoes. Easy and yummy, but NOT cheap…thanks Whole Foods…
THIS. This will forever be one of my favorite meals that Jon makes. Mojo pork with black beans and rice. His black beans are perfection and I could literally eat them all day every day if I had to.
I attended Flicks and Food Trucks in downtown Tampa for a work event this past week. Definitely check it out if you haven’t yet. There’s 15 local food trucks that come out, live music and a big blow up screen where they show a movie. It’s super neat. While I was there I got the Che-Bacon from the Grilled Cheese truck. This thing was heaven. Pure, absolute, cheesy heaven.
