Good morning! Back to regular posting (and pug photos)!
Mal and I got home from Cabo on Tuesday evening, so we spent the majority of yesterday getting our lives in order—unpacking, doing (tons of stinky, sweaty) laundry, grocery shopping, and cuddling the heck out of this little guy:
We missed him so much!
A face only a mother could love…
We left our fridge almost empty before leaving for Cabo, so when we got home, we needed to seriously stock up on groceries. This week’s haul:
Since I went grocery shopping mid-week, I only planned dinners through the weekend, which means I’ll end up shopping again at the beginning of next week.
Here’s what’s on the menu for the next several days:
- Wednesday: Skillet Sweet Potato, Ground Turkey, and Spinach Hash
- Thursday: Leftovers
- Friday: Maple-Mustard Greens & Beans
- Saturday: Italian “Hot Plate”
- Sunday: Lettuce wraps with ham, cheese, and veggies

I’ve been on a serious coconut butter kick lately. I recently discovered a vanilla cake batter variety of coconut butter (it’s incredible), and I find myself sneaking spoonfuls of it straight from the jar almost every day. And, okay, sometimes those spoonfuls are multiples times a day. I’m obsessed with it.
My blog readers often ask me how I eat coconut butter (besides straight from the jar), and I often compare it to almond butter or another nut butter. It often comes in a jar, and it’s a similar texture and consistency, but coconut butter is special in its own way. With that said, here are five delicious ways to eat it!
Question of the Day
