Today I thought I'd make you all jealous and share some of the awesome food we've been enjoying as of late because CSA season has started in our house and that means tons of fresh veggies and awesomeness! Here are a few favorites of the last couple of weeks!
Nate made us an Ecuadorian style meal for date night this week. He marinated a pork chop in some spices. Then he took some of the vitamin greens, kale and spinach that we received from our CSA and turned that into a pureed green sauce mixed up with garlic scapes, onion and jalapeno. He also added in some turnip that also was in our CSA. On the side he gave us a little bit of rice with a fried egg on top, because most Ecuadorian meals include an egg and we are getting fresh eggs with our CSA this year too. This meal was AMAZING.
Next up is a meal so simple it was actually made by yours truly! I can't take credit for the idea, the recipe came from our CSA's blog. But it seriously so simple. We are getting a cheese share with the CSA this year and one of the cheeses was a soft cheese called Quark - it's a similar texture to a cream cheese and is even sweet like one. They suggested putting the quark on a baguette and then topping with a slice of radish (also in our CSA box). My in-laws tried the recipe and said they used Wheat Thins instead of bread, so we decided to do that too. So there you have it - a little cheese spread on the cracker, top it with a radish slice and garnish with just a little salt and pepper. OMG. To die for. I realize you may not have access to quark - cream cheese would probably be a fine substitute or even a soft goat cheese spread would probably be tasty too! We added a little leftover fried steak for some extra protein, but I seriously could have been satisfied with these little cracker treats all on their own!
And last up pizza. I know I talk about how we make our own pizza here on the blog a lot. This last one however was extra awesome, because we topped it with our own homegrown basil and Nate actually grilled it! It came out with the crispest, most delicious crust ever! We're having another one for dinner tonight and I can't wait! Until we make it to one of the pizza farms, doing it up at home will definitely work for now!

Today's Thrift Style Thursday theme was chosen by yours truly - inspired by the official Summer Solstice last weekend I chose a theme of "Sunshine" - any sunny, bright look that channels summer days! I originally thought I'd go for more of an orange hued look for today, but then I saw this shirt in my drawer and I was like, oh this is the one. If there was every a sunnier feeling shirt, I wouldn't know!
Also today is one of those awesome days where the stars aligned and every item I'm wearing was either thrifted or gifted! My wardrobe is more and more thrifted things these days, but it's still not often that every last thing I'm wearing is completely thrifted! Well ok, my Fitbit was clearly not thrifted, but it's also not all that fashionable, so we won't count that!
Shirt - Gap (thrifted), Skirt - Merona (garage sale)
Shoes - via Instagram shop, Bag - Stella and Dot (from friend)
Necklace - Mode (free from event)
I just love how all of this came together today, it just might be my favorite Thrift Style Thursday look of late! I might be biased because it was my theme though! But seriously, the yellows and gold are just all playing so nice together. I was even going to carry my favorite Stitch Fix bag (which wouldn't have been thrifted) to bring in some orange tones, but my favorite Stella and Dot bag tends to look either gold or silver and today it looks more gold and I think matches pretty well!
But someone else at our house decided to participate and wear some orange today, so I decided to take his picture too! #ToddlerStyle
And guess what? His whole outfit is thrifted too. This entire outfit came from Once Upon a Child, courtesy of Grandma. He's still quite the ham when the camera comes out, he knows how to say "Cheese" now. Love my cutie.
