My mom arrived in Charlotte yesterday so I’m happy to have her here for a while pre-baby. The plans for this weekend include picking a new nursery wall paint color (the saga continues…we’ve decided to change the wall color again instead of the trim), getting the hospital bag checked, installing a car seat in one of the cars and my first baby shower!
It’s been a minute since I’ve done a recent eats round up so I put one together for you this morning along with a couple cute photos of the girls at the end because…I can’t help myself!
Smoothie bowl with homemade peanut butter granola.
Lunch was delicious, conversation was even better! I love the work that Leslie Ann is doing around educating women on how to cook and how to fuel their bodies.
A little bit of everything salad bowl. Massaged kale, shredded cheese, leftover rice, canned salmon, cashews, dried cranberries, avocado, strawberries and tahini turmeric dressing.
My favorite foods all on one plate. Bread + avocado + cheese, chips, pineapple and grapes. All big pregnancy cravings for me!
Salad bowl with arugula, grapes, turkey, avocado, pears, dried berry blend, pistachios, feta and tomatoes.
Another day, another sandwich.
Lunch out with a friend at Earl’s Grocery. I had a salad with kale, beets, farro, chicken, feta, avocado and currants.
And then came home and also had a piece of sourdough with cashew butter, honey, sea salt and bananas. Remember when I ate this all the time in the first trimester before announcing I was pregnant?
After several months hiatus, I got back on the salmon train. Quick recipe…I seasoned two salmon fillets with Trader Joe’s lemon pepper grinder and a garlic herb seasoning. Topped it with a few pats of salted butter and lemon wedges and then baked for about 20-25 minutes on 350.
In true pregnancy fashion, I was like…if I’m having fish…I’m having pasta too. 🙂 I served it with spinach tortellini that I tossed with artichoke hearts and marinara sauce. I also put the salmon on a bed of massaged kale so I could feel healthier about it.
More pasta…frozen mushroom truffle ravioli from Whole Foods topped with marinara sauce, mushrooms and artichoke hearts.
A VERY random creation of leftover corned beef scrambled with an egg and topped with cheese and heated under the broiler. It was delicious. I had some leftover cabbage and potatoes on the side but wasn’t really feeling it.
I met Dorie and some friends for dinner one night at Namastay Kitchen and had a salmon salad.
And finally, for my mom’s first night in town we kept it simple with rotisserie chicken, sauteed mushrooms, roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli.
A stop at Sunflour last week for some goodies. I ate the cupcake that day and froze the morning glory muffin and the cheddar biscuit. I’ve since eaten the muffin but haven’t tried the biscuit yet. I’ve heard amazing things about them so I’m eager to. I might use it to make an egg sandwich.
I am NEVER alone with these two. They stay in the office with me while I’m working. Zoey loves to get under my desk. I thought this was so cute of them butt-to-butt with the desk between them.
One more…Zoey is the biggest ham and is so needy for attention. The other night she was smushing her face between my feet so that I would rub her with my feet. She will take pats however she can get them. Love her.
And that wraps it up! Off to run some errands and enjoy the day. I hope you guys have the best Friday and a great weekend!
Any funny ways that your dogs “demand” attention?
