This Wednesday feels like a Monday… since I took Monday and Tuesday off work, while Alexa was visiting. So this Wednesday kind of crept up on me, but don’t worry, Alexa and I did a lot of photo documentation during her trip, so we can share some of our deliciousness with you.



Our most notable breakfast was the banana soft serve, eaten with homemade Samoa Granola.

I’m going to make you wait until Friday for the recipe, but let me tell you, this is my new favorite granola. And if you’re a girl scout cookie addict… you’re going to enjoy it.


When Alexa comes to town, it’s mandatory that we make at least one trip to Carytown Burgers and Fries. This trip was no different.

They have an amazing black bean burger, which we devoured.


We did a lot of walking and photo taking, and thus also did a lot of snacking. We enjoyed a few Guiltless Gourmet Tortilla Chips, served with some Pineapple Salsa, which I whipped up on Sunday.

Pineapple Salsa

  •    2 cups crushed pineapple or pineapple tidbits
  •    3/4 cup black beans
  •    1/4 cup white onion, diced
  •    1/3 cup diced red, green, or orange pepper (I used orange)
  •    Juice from 1 lime
  •    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  •    Salt and pepper to taste
  •    Dash of hot sauce (if you’re into that)
Throw it all in a bowl, and let it marinate for a bit. It’s definitely better the next day, but you can totally dig in right away.


Since Alexa had never been to Stuzzi, we met up with Kate for $1 pizza night, and enjoyed some “Neapolitan style” pizza.

I’ve posted about the deliciousness of Stuzzi before, here, and it was no less delicious this time.

I’m so sad Alexa had to go back to Ohio, but we did accomplish an entire board of pinterest projects, so you’ll be seeing tons of new recipes, including cheesecake cookies, baked zucchini, and of course, the Samoa Granola.

Hope you’re all having a fabulous week!
