Cutest Blush Peplum Top + Our Favorite Meals

April 6, 2018

How cute is this blush peplum top?! I feel like the cut plus the flutter sleeves are so flattering, and I just love it with white denim for spring. It will be cute with shorts in the summer too. It is one of the things I bought while in Chicago. If you read my post last week, I basically bought several sale tops that are easy to wear multiple ways that fit my more casual lifestyle these days.

Our Favorite Meals

I also thought I would share some of our favorite meals in today’s post. I know that is a bit different than my normal topic, but I sometimes get questions about what eat/what I cook. I love being able to relate to you all on things besides just clothes because the reality is that our lives are all so complex and so much more than just fashion. Not too long ago on my Instagram stories, I asked if people would be interested in more. I threw out some topics including motherhood, beauty, cooking, faith, etc. While my blog will always center around fashion, I thought it would be fun to share more here and there, and it sounded like you all thought it would be too!

Easy, Healthy Weeknight Dinner Options

easy healthy meal ideas perfect for the weeknight

I don’t know about you all, but I am always on the hunt for easy, healthy options. I cannot get a complicated meal on the table any more. It’s often crock pot for us. My philosophy is usually to find one thing to make that will last for two nights. Since Ivy Jean doesn’t eat enough yet, I can usually still get away with this. I know eventually as she eats more, and God willing, we have other kiddos this may not be sustainable. For now, it works!

Crockpot Meals

  • Chicken Salsa – I make as much of this that will fit in my crockpot, and then make taco salads, chicken tacos, burrito bowls, and/or mini pepper nachos to last us a couple days.
  • Chicken Taco Chili – We make this all the time in the winter and eat it for multiple days!
  • Red Thai Curry – This is from my friend Jordan’s blog and is so good! I use zucchini in place of eggplant because we like it better and serve over ready rice (a staple in our house!!).
  • Turkey Breast – Serve with side(s) of choice.
  • Plain, Shredded Chicken – I fill my crockpot with frozen chicken breast then add onion, salt, pepper, and garlic. Add water until almost covered and cook on low 6-8 hours. Shred and use to make chicken salad or a large dinner salad with chicken and all kinds of good things.
  • Spicy Dr. Pepper Pork – So good alone, on sandwiches, or in burrito bowls (see below).

Easy, Healthy Meals

  • Copycat P.F. Chang Lettuce Wraps
  • Crustless Quiche – I started with this recipe and now use it as a base and adapt it based on what I have in my refrigerator and/or what we want. I have added meat, all different kinds of cheese, any and all veggies. It is great any way!
  • Spaghetti squash with an easy meat sauce
  • Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes – I double the recipe, make a ton on the griddle at a time, and freeze in batches. They freeze really well and are so good!
  • Whole 30 Turkey Meat Balls – I double this to make a big batch at once and freeze in batches. We eat with marina over cauliflower rice most of the time. It’s also good with zoodles, plain (with marina and a salad), or regular noodles.
  • Burrito Bowls – We make burrito bowls all the time! We buy the ready rice and add black beans, corn, salsa, avocado, sour cream or greek yogurt, and sriracha. Sooo good! We use either salsa chicken or the pork from the crockpot section above.
