This Weeks Eats 7.13.14

I finally made it over to a local brewery near my house this weekend that is apparently ALL THE RAGE with my Instagram friends.  192 Brewing was a perfect place to take the boy child for a little date night.  

There was live music (they even played free bird - which my son rather enjoyed), bikers to watch pass by on the Burke Gilman Trail and 'pizza bread' for dinner ZOMG.  I very much enjoyed my beer, their signature Shticky Blonde, and a heaping pile of nachos - with bbq pork.  YUM.

The weather is heating up in our neck of the woods, so we're keeping things simple and summery with a short menu this week - since I'll be MIA for Ragnar shenanigans this weekend!!

  • Monday - Pizza
  • Tuesday - Grilled Chicken with Quinoa Avocado Salad
  • Wednesday - Grape n' Tuna Pasta Salad (this is one of those recipes we've made without a recipe for years, so I dug up this similar one from Food Network that uses a few different ingredients, like Greek yogurt instead of mayo, to try.)
  • Thursday - Goin' out for dinner with Ragnar teammates!
  • Friday - I'll likely be eating a turkey sandwich in the back of a van!
  • Saturday - Hot Dogs on the grill (super easy so I can eat and go directly to bed)
  • Sunday - BBQ Pork Salad (Didn't end up making this last week, as things got hectic with big brother's swim lessons - hence the dinner date.)
Speaking of last week, the spaghetti recipe from Eat, Live, Run was a success!  We used ground turkey and turkey sausage and it tasty really hearty.  I would suggest adding a few cloves of chopped garlic after the veggies cook, cuz I just don't do garlic salt/powder/jarred garlic.

As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie, Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!


  1. Quinoa avocado salad sounds absolutely delicious! Avocado is currently one of the few foods (along with quinoa) that my toddler has really been loving - I'll have to try it soon :)

  2. I love finding live music and eating outdoors- perfect way to soak up the summer!

  3. Eating outside makes everything taste better! I've been keeping our menu simple and summery too :)
