Phew! I feel like I've hardly had a chance to take a breath this week. We've been go go go but we've still had time to create some deeeeeelicious meals - so this week we're doing things a little bit differently with our Recent Things post!
I'm sharing lots of delicious eats and a super simple but oh so delicious recipe that we enjoyed for dinner last night!
Recent Favourite: Peanut Butter on Banana Bread <3 Whether it's our Best Ever Healthy Banana Bread Recipe, our Healthy Paleo Banana Bread Recipe or this Ricotta Banana Bread Recipe (which we'll be sharing soon!) it doesn't matter, I'm simply obsessed :P
Recent Addiction: Cold pancakes..... Jesse thinks I'm absolutely mental for liking pancakes cold - but they're so so good! This week I've been loving these Healthy Buttermilk Pancakes cold as well as a new super thick and fluffy pancake recipe
we'll be sharing soon (the recipe is now on the blog!) - I just freeze the leftovers whenever we make them and chill them in the fridge overnight so they're ready to eat in the morning!
Recent Surprises: Our friends at Australian Eggs sent us a bunch of eggscellent goodies this week which Jesse immediately snapped up. He's on #TeamRunny when it comes to eggs, but I'd probably say I'm on team frittata. Frittatas have to be my favourite way to eat eggs whilst Jesse will eat them any way, shape or form.
Recent Obsession: Wraps! Woolworths has these new BFree Gluten Free Wraps which (whilst ridiculously expensive) are so so good. I was so excited to have a gluten free wrap that actually tasted good and WRAPPED! It did not crack - and I wrapped it again and again because it was a novelty ;P Oh what a sad life I lead.
This wrap was filled with ham, hommus, feta, lettuce and salad fixings and it was sooooooooo delicious!
Recent Rekindled Love: My beloved Chocolate Protein Breakfast Bakes! Smothered with peanut butter and served with a side of super sweet strawberries, of course!
Recent Plans: We've got a busy weekend ahead but we decided tonight has to be date night as our Youth Group is off for the school holidays! Jesse picked "Go See a Movie" out of our DIY Date Night Jar (which we're still using a year and a half later) and we're going to go and see the new TMNT Movie tonight!
Recent Recipe Success: I tried out a new dinner idea last and it was so so good! Jesse isn't usually a pasta salad fan, however, I decided to take a change and make this Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad for dinner for us last night and he loved it! Here's the
not quite a recipe;
Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad Recipe serves 1, easily multiplied
1 serve pasta (we used gluten free penne)
1 serve chicken, grilled and seasoned however you like
Cos lettuce, washed and torn into pieces
~1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
~1-2 tbsp caesar salad dressing (we used a gluten free Kristy friendly one from Zoosh)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Simply cook your pasta according to packet directions, drain and rinse in cold water and set aside.
Mix your lettuce with your grilled chicken (warm or cold, it's up to you - we had ours warm!) and stir through your pasta, parmesan and dressing until all of your salad is coated.
Serve and enjoy!
Simple but oh so delicious - and perfect for warmer weather!
