New recipe!

Corn and quinoa! I found this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded so light and fresh, perfect for a rainy summer dinner at home.

Mr. PT and I ate this alone as a main dish but it would also serve as a tasty side dish!

Find the recipe here:

Cooking dinner is trickier now with our little peanut but with adequate planning and an extra pair of arms for baby snuggling, it can be done!

Summer snacking

Did your mom ever buy you those fun, individually packaged Lunchables with the cute little squares of lunch meat and the chocolate hoho-like dessert?

Yeah, mine didn't either. Oh well, looking back, that was probably a smart choice.

However, the concept is good! Try making your own Lunchables at home using a few simple, fresh ingredients!

I made these using whole grain crackers, colby jack cheese, roasted turkey slices and fresh basil. I have also thrown on a slab of avocado in the past. This makes a perfect snack or
lunch paired with fresh fruit and yogurt!

Also, see the sleeping beast that finally allowed me to write this post today...:)

Summer sandwiches

I love sandwiches in the summer! Something about the simplicity of fresh ingredients on toasted bread makes me want July to never end. Try this one tonight!

The classic BLT with a little extra summer love:
Toast an English muffin. Sandwich it with 2-3 slices of bacon, iceberg lettuce, a fresh slice of tomato, and fresh avocado. Lightly dab on some chipotle ranch for a little extra kick! Forget this step if you are watching calories, the sandwich will still have marvelous flavor.
