Fun Finds on Friday

I really, really love to eat.

Ask me how my vacation went, and I’ll tell you all about the food we ate each day.

The only reason I work out is so I can eat even more.

So this week I’m giving you the edible edition of Fun Finds – recipes that I’ve been thinking of trying (and totally pinning). Bon apetit!

I’ll pick fish over meat any day of the week. Salmon burgers are my go-to during the summer months. Plus, my husband – who hates anything “from the sea” – can happily munch his beefy version alongside mine.

The weather here has been hot, and what better way to cool down than with a lime sherbet margarita? Delish.

How fresh and summery is a bowl of pasta with roasted veggies?! Plus, this one’s made with quinoa noodles, so my gluten free friends will be happy too.
