Good morning and happy Friday!
From Florida! I made a secret trip down on Wednesday night to surprise my mom for her birthday. And my dad and I successfully pulled it off! She had absolutely no clue that I was coming and was so surprised when I walked in the door with my dad. I’ve been soaking up this quick trip and visiting with them. I’m heading back to Charlotte today. Wish I could stay a few more days!
A few eats from the week to wrap up the week…
My dad’s homemade yogurt (get tutorial here) with his homemade granola (He just started making his own granola recently. It’s good!), bananas, berries and peanut butter. Always peanut butter.
Pressed wrap with deli chicken, cheddar, avocado, honey dijon and spinach. (Wrap tutorial here.)
Open-faced sandwich of mayo, avocado, deli chicken and cheddar on my dad’s sourdough.
Salad and a side of hummus and cheese flatbread.
Pastrami, avocado, mayo, dijon, tomatoes and pepper jack on sourdough that my dad baked just hours before lunch. I can’t even tell you how amazing it was! He’s sending me home with two loaves again. I am forever grateful.
Baked lemon herb Alaskan salmon with roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli. I started with this amount of broccoli and proceeded to eat the entire bunch of roasted broccoli. Why is it so good!? And for the record, I almost always dip my sweet potatoes in organic ketchup.
This dinner was my favorite of the week and was enjoyed on a cold, rainy day. Crockpot balsamic pork tenderloin with pureed cauliflower and braised red cabbage. I love red cabbage so much and this is going to be a winter side staple for me.
My dad had this simple dinner waiting for me when I got in late Wednesday. (I need to start traveling with my DSLR again and not just taking iPhone pics.) It’s a crustless quiche with ham and cheese and a side salad.
Off for a walk on the beach with my dad before heading back to Charlotte. Have a wonderful day!
