things i’m loving this summer

May 21, 2012

Yes, I am aware it is still spring, but outside it sure feels like summer! This weekend our temperatures were super high at 87 degrees each day. I love the heat, so I say bring it on. The humidity, however, can stay away from me.

I’ve been meaning to do a “what I’m loving” post for a while now and am finally getting around to putting one together.

Udi’s Plain Bagels — Seriously, delicious. I can’t say anything else. I’ve been buying a package a week from Trader Joe’s (they’re $4.99 which is pretty cheap as far as GF goes) and use them for sandwiches or for a nighttime snack with almond butter and bananas. I love them lightly toasted. Super chewy.

Iced Soy Mistos — It sounds a lot fancier than it is. It’s just an iced coffee with half soy. I finally figured out instead of telling them extra soy and having there not be enough, I finally decided to ask them if they do iced soy mistos. Of course they do! Starbuck’s does anything you ask if you walk in there sounding like you know what you’re talking about.

Alexia Sweet Potato Tater Tots — Okay, so they call them “bite sized puffs”, but whatever — they’re tater tots. I found these at Whole Foods the other day and basically squealed with delight. Tater tots? Made with sweet potatoes? Sign me up — for the rest of my life!

Whole Foods Sushi — Why oh why had I never had sushi from Whole Foods before? For $13, I was able to feel like I had picked up takeout from my favorite sushi restaurant. I picked up the snack sushi avocado roll and a vegetable roll with avocado, carrots, and cucumber which is coated in sesame seeds. I was a happy girl on Friday night.

Pineapple — Pineapple is on sale every time I go to the store lately — and for good reason! It’s been so juicy and delicious. I’m one of those crazy people who doesn’t find cutting up pineapple tedious or daunting. Give me a knife, and I’ll go to town! That sounded weird.

Fresh Flowers — Every spring and summer I can’t wait to buy flowers for the kitchen table. I really love buying flowers from Trader Joe’s. They last about two weeks and are super cheap. This week I nabbed some pink Gerber daisies to remind me of our wedding. Our wedding flowers were deep pink Gerber daisies and deep purple hydrangeas.

Amy’s Sonoma Veggie Burgers — I’m typically all about making veggie burgers from scratch, but I have been wanting to try these out! It’s not very often you find a gluten free veggie burger, so I was happy to find these! I’m definitely a fan.
