Food Favorites

I’m sure you’ve figured out from the title of this post what we will be talking about! I love food and my favorites change all the time so let’s start talking about these before I move on 🙂

Both the hubs and I love a good gummy candy, but it’s super hard to find one that has no pork gelatin. AND if they don’t have it they tend to be super hard and not enjoyable at all. That is, until now! Trader Joe’s has these Scandinavian Swimmers (a knock off Swedish Fish). These are sooooo soft and the flavors are tasty! Try them if you love gummy candies!

This is one amazing hot sauce. It’s not just any hot sauce though it’s Peri Peri sauce. It’s spicy and tangy and so yummy! I dip my quesadillas in these all the time and it’s the perfect acid component. NOMS!

Okay, so my go to bread is usually sourdough, but I don’t like making PBJs with it. I really wanted some white bread, but still wanted some nutrients of whole grain. I found this in the grocery store and had to pick it up! It’s been really making my PBJs super yummy!

I love hummus (who doesn’t) and this Everything Hummus is everything. If you like everything bagels you will love this! I dip carrots, pita chips, crackers…whatever I can find in this. I bet it would make a pretty snazzy sandwich too 😋

That is all for my food favorites (for now)! Tell me what you’ve found at your grocery store and been loving!

Lunching

While trying to run errands we decided to grab some lunch and Panera sounded perfect and a salad sounded even better.

The Cobb salad was fresh, crunchy, creamy and delicious. I enjoyed every bite! We all know how I feel about bread and butter so this was a win. I didn’t end up eating all the salad or all the bread, but I was full and happy.

Obviously my dessert tummy still needed a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ so we grabbed a huge churro and some soft serve for dipping 😉

Is there anything more perfect in the heat?!

What’s your go to lunch when you’re out and about?

Superheros and Pasta

We decided to turn a random Thursday into a fun little date night!

We decided to catch up with the rest of the world and finally watch Black Panther. This movie gave me all the feels-I was stressed, teary, and I had chills every other scene. It was ridiculous, but I loved it and so did the hubs. We could not stop talking about it!

Another thing we had been talking about wanting to do for a while was eat at Eataly. Eataly is located inside of a mall and is known for having all things Italian. Breads, cheeses, meats, pastas, sweets and to top it off they have quite a few restaurants.

We wanted to go to La Pizza and La Pasta. The plan was initially pizza (we love our pizza), but after getting there we decided we HAD to try a pasta dish.

We aren’t big pasta people. I love carbs, but I don’t usually crave a pasta dish. My carb of choice is usually bread based :D. BUT seeing the wafting bowls of pasta go by we couldn’t resist!

We did get the margherita pizza and the pasta dish we picked was the tagliatelle that was tomato based and had brisket.

The margherita was amazing-the crust was fluffy and chewy and beautiful.

The pasta was perfectly sauced and the brisket was fall apart tender. It came together so perfectly-it was our favorite of the two!

If you haven’t been you gotta go and you have to have the tagliatelle with brisket! It is seriously a dish fit for a superhero 😉

Let me know in the comments below if you are a bread person, a pasta person or if I made you choose you could possibly combust from having to decide…
