I’m here for another round of Friday Favorites! We’re leaving for Ohio for a fun-filled race weekend, and we’re really excited! I love weekend getaways, and Matt has been itching to hit the track.
I finally got my paws on one of The Pioneer Woman’s frozen food items! They looked awesome for a morning when you want savory but are low on time. I tried them with toast topped with Greek cream cheese and honey along with a local peach. So. Good. Funny story: I was planning to top my cream cheese with jam, but I was SUCH a klutz and dropped the glass jar. Jam and glass everywhere. I just stood there and stared at it. Between Matt dropping our maple and then this, we clearly have slippery fingers in the morning. Womp womp.
Some people don’t like the texture of Triscuit crackers or shredded wheat, but the texture is one of the reasons I love them. I love the braided wheat, and these Triscuit Thin Crisps are a little more delicate or light. I love this flavor! Savory with a hint of sweet.
While we always keep tubs of plain Greek yogurt on hand, it’s nice to have single-serve flavored yogurts at times. I saw these new flavors from Chobani that practically threw themselves into my cart. 😉
All about that herbal tea in the evening! Cinnamon and lavender are two of my favorite flavors, so to combine them sounded like the perfect idea. I’ve really been enjoying this and recommend it!
So because I accidentally wasted our jam, I bought us a new jar and decided to try this new product by Smucker’s. We tried it and both love it!
Has anyone tried this apple variety? I thought they sounded fun, and I’ve enjoyed a few. The skin seems a tad chewy, but they do have a nice flavor. I’m not sure I’d go as far as to call it a “tropical twist”, but if anyone has tried them, please let me know your thoughts! Also, Jackson standing on his tippy toes for Rachel’s food on the counter kills me!
I used the last of our jarred organic vegetable pasta sauce in this dish with local roasted eggplant/red pepper/zucchini and GF elbow noodles. The noodles were made with brown rice and flax seed, and they were delicious! Unfortunately, I cooked them pretty well, but as the leftovers sat in the sauce, they cooked more and became overly soft. Oh well!
Some more meal inspiration for you. “Chicken and waffles” with a twist. I toasted a ‘Thick and Fluffy’ Eggo waffle and topped it with an Aldi Mediterranean chicken burger and pickles. We enjoyed steamed peas and carrots and local tomatoes on the side. Such a fun meal!
I finally made our Beyond Meat ‘The Beyond Burgers’, and we enjoyed them topped with pickled jalapeños and over Canyon Bakehouse Ancient Grain bread with mayo and spicy mustard. I roasted green beans and zucchini to go along with them. Interesting texture and very tasty! Different but great.
I received a free coffee coupon from Remedy Coffee, and I was so thankful! I enjoyed it with a splash of oat milk.
It’s located next to the Knoxville National Cemetery , and I always think it’s so interesting when I pass by.
I used my Burt’s Bees charcoal mask one evening, and it made me think of the scene in It Takes Two where the evil step-mom creeps out the kids with her eye mask. Hahahahaha
Matt was working on one of his boss’s cars, and he spotted this incredible owl in a tree nearby! He text this to me during the afternoon on Thursday, and it made my day!
Have the best weekend!
