Hello sweet friends!
It’s week two of “What We’re Eating” and a lot of you have expressed how much you’ve enjoyed it so far! It makes my heart so happy when we share things with you that we are doing and help inspire you in some way. Isn’t that what it’s all about?? Inspiring one another? 🙂
Well, shall we get to it?!

Since it’s pretty hot where we live during the summer, we try hard to not bake much and try to not even turn on our stove as much as possible. It sounds crazy but it makes a huge difference in the temperature inside the house. So, we tried to pick things that required minimal cooking, can be grilled outside or are cold to begin with; cold dinners are refreshing anyway during these summer months right?!
I hope you enjoy this weeks dinner inspiration friends! Oh! And I forgot to mention last week…we always, always, always eat leftovers for lunch during the week. We are on a budget and can’t afford to make different things for lunches and dinners. Breakfasts usually consist of homemade cold brew or a homemade espresso and either an egg or two or even just a piece of fruit and yogurt or cheese. We are simple people friends 🙂 Sometimes we cook or eat things that are a little bit more fancy, but meals like you see above are the norm for us.
As always, send us your meal ideas for inspiration, or let us know if you tried something new from our meal plan. We love hearing from you!
