Pinworthy Projects Party

Happy Friday!  I hope you are enjoying the gorgeous day. Being a federal holiday, Mathlete and I are both off from work which is awesome. Hopefully we find some time to hang out and relax and don’t fill our day up with tons of errands and chores.

In case you’ve been busy with errands and chores, here are a few things you missed here:

Strawberry Aperol Spritz

I’m a huge fan of wine. But, during the summer, I usually choose a good cocktail over my standard glass of wine in the evening. A brunch event recently, I was introduced to an aperol spritz which is a compbination of aperol, sparkling wine and club soda. It was amazing and so perfect for me because I could still get my wine and have my cocktail! At home, I like to add a little extra something to mine and have a strawberry aperol spritz.

Summer Peach and Prosciutto Pizza

It seems like I waited forever this year for our grocery store to get peaches. I doubt it was really any longer than usual but I had a few recipe ideas in mind that required peaches so the wait seemed ridiculous. Finally, our farmer’s market got some gorgeous peaches in and I was able to create the most delicious peach and prosciutto pizza that practically screams “SUMMER” when you eat it.

Easy Glass Organization

Once upon a time there were two teachers and two students who loved each other and lived together under the same roof.  This little family was home together everyday all summer and it was wonderful….except for one thing….

there were too many glasses on the counter.

All. the. time.

Summer Pasta with Shrimp

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Ronzoni, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #RonzoniSummer  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Summer is here with the hot temperatures and long days. On summer nights, I want quick and easy recipes that my family will love. But, I don’t want to sacrifice their well rounded meals either. So, I turn to options like pasta dishes that cook quickly but also incorporate vegetables too. This summer pasta with shrimp is the perfect quick summer night meal that also has plenty of vegetables even though they might not be so obvious {i.e. this kids will still actually eat it}!

Pinworthy Projects Party

Happy Friday! It has been a crazy week. It was the first week that school has been out and we are struggling with settling into a new routine. Is anyone else having that issue? 

I was, thankfully, able to look through last week’s party and pick out some fun ideas to share. Of course, I’ll be pinning a ton too.

Roasted Vegetable Galette

Mathlete and I have been planning out some future vacations recently and decided that one way we can more easily save for the trips is by reducing how much we eat out. But, I love going out for brunch on the weekends and seriously missed the idea of the delicious brunch dishes that we normally get. Instead of giving in, I decided to bring brunch to the house and made a roasted vegetable galette instead.

Primal Mini Pizzas

I love pizza. In fact, my whole family are huge pizza fans. We all like different toppings on our pizza but we can always agree that pizza would make a perfect dinner. I like to make mini pizzas because it allows everyone to customize their toppings and get just the right amount to eat. Since I have started focusing on a mostly Paleo diet, I don’t usually eat the pizza on pizza night. But, on our last one, I decided to make primal mini pizzas so I could have some pizza too.

Cucumber Lemon Thyme Spa Water

Happy Monday! Typically Mondays are the days that I share my latest paleo recipe with you. Today is a little different because while the post is actually a paleo recipe, I am actually sharing my new favorite drink. See…I really just don’t like water. I wrote a whole thing about my problem with water awhile back and ways that I try to drink more water. But, I still tend to fail majorly at drinking enough water. Focusing on eating healthier is great but it needs to go hand in hand with paying more attention to the liquids I put in my body too. My current favorite {well besides my daily latte which I’ll probably never give up} is cucumber lemon thyme spa water.

Up your water intake with this delicious and refreshing cucumber lemon thyme spa water!
