Lately I have been CRAVING pasta salad hard. There’s something about a comforting and hearty bowl of pasta salad with fresh, juicy tomatoes that I’ve been loving. Plus, it’s super easy to whip together which makes pasta salad a double dose of exactly what I need in my life.
THIS is the recipe that was a long time coming. I tested and played around with this recipe a cuhhraazayy number of times. Ok, maybe like five. Five times. And finally, fiiianlly I got it right.
Ok, I’m back at it with some more kid meals! Ever since I started this fun little venture into sharing more kid meals, I’ve actually enjoyed making different combos and adding more variety to our plates. Some of these are lunches, some of these are dinner, either way, I hope you find some inspo to get you out of your kid meal rut!
I few years ago I started making these “homemade chocolate cups” which was just a mix of coconut oil and cocoa and some sweetener. We loved them. They melted in your mouth, they were super fun and chocolatey and really took care of that nightly sweet tooth that encourages me to eat ALL the things.
This past weekend we went out to a restaurant and ordered some cocktails. It was so nice to sit at a restaurant with some friends, order good food, and enjoyyy the company of adults sans kids. It’s been too long. Siiiiip.
I have a go-to green sauce that I put on everything. Yes, I’ve been holding out on you. I put it on chickpea pasta. I put it on salads. I dip things in it. It’s one of those put-it-on-everything, cannot get enough, eat it with a spoon kind of sauces. You know what I’m saying?
A while back I did a YouTube video sharing some of my favorite low-waste, no-waste products. It’s something that I’ve been super into in the last few years. I am by no means perfect, I still get the occasional plastic bag or straw, but I think small changes can add up.
Do you guys like coconut butter? It’s a really fun alternative to your regular nut butter, and it’s amazing for toast, banana and apple dipping, cookie drizzling, etc.
