This morning’s breakfast was de-lic-ious. I actually made a version of it last night for dessert, so when I woke up this morning, it was pretty much the first thing I thought about. It’s sliced banana with a mixture of Greek yogurt, coconut cream, shredded coconut, honey, and vanilla extract on top, but, holy goodness, it’s amazing””sweet, thick, and creamy with lots of satisfying protein and fat. Love. It.

  1. I made a pot of chili tonight for dinner in honor of the food holiday. It was definitely an improvised recipe, but I used Mama Pea’s drop biscuit recipe for the topping–delicious!

  2. I love happy accidents like eating chili tonight for dinner and seeing this post! My absolute favorite chili recipe is Chocolate Chili from Well Fed by Melissa Joulwan. She also has it on her site theclothesmakethegirl.com

    Our six year old daughter fights with her dad over the leftovers. Pretty cute.
