Recipe Recap!

It's always a treat to try a new restaurant or breakfast spot, but some weekends call for rest and relaxation-A.K.A. laying on the couch, watching football, snuggling with Frank, AND cooking! Some may not consider making the kitchen a mess relaxing, but I love taking extra time on the weekends to try new recipes. Here is what we enjoyed last weekend! (A little late, whoops)

Black Bean Burgers

  • These are on our top veggie burger list! SO EASY and filling. 
  • I left out the Tabasco sauce and green onion, and subbed oats for brown rice to save prep time. 
  • Leftovers are great for lunch-crumble on top of a salad or pack a whole grain bun.

Healthy Blueberry Waffles : So you're thinking "Those aren't waffles!" 

  • Pancakes sounded tasty, so I followed Lee's tips at the bottom of the recipe to convert them from waffles->pancakes. 
  • I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour, left out the blueberries and coconut oil, and added 1/2 cup pumpkin. YUM, pumpkin. 
  • These were so FLUFFY and DENSE! 

5 Minute Kale Pesto

  • We got a really big bag of pre-cut kale at Fresh market for $2, so I needed to use it up!
  • I used walnuts instead of almonds, mixed the pesto with spaghetti squash, and topped it with chicken! Easy and simple. 

Oatmeal Cookie Peanut Butter Cups

Frank loves the weekends! It means he has Josh and Meredith time 24/7! Stay tuned for more weekend recaps and meal prep posts with GROCERY LISTS. I've been getting feedback on how helpful they would be!
