Good eats…

I have yet to get into a summertime groove.  It’s the second week of summer break and we’re still being lazy bums over here.  I need to get to the grocery and start planning meals like, yesterday!  Without the hassle of picking up the kids in the afternoon, there is no excuse to not be making dinner most nights.  Not to mention that I’ve added a few unwanted lbs and eating out all the time is not helping.  I was hoping to get on a regular exercise routine this week as well, but my body had other plans.  I go to the doc at the end of next week and hopefully won’t have any restrictions, but until then, I’ll just be doing light exercise.

While most of these aren’t dinner ideas, they are some of my food pins that are on my to-make list for the summer…

How great would it be to have a pancake mix like this on hand instead of the premade mixes?!  I’d probably try using coconut oil instead of the canola though.

I’m always game for a new quinoa recipe and this one for breakfast sounds pretty promising.
