How is this for a recipe??:
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have already seen this, but I just had to share it again with the rest of you. It’s just amazing! I found it in a cookbook called “Carolina Receipts.” Apparently there have been issues of this book coming out since 1950, so a lot of the recipes are old and neat to look at. They’re little historical gems in the way they’re written and some of the phrases. I was flipping through it and stumbled across this one, which I’m guessing was maybe a wedding cake or church reception cake? From 1850? Whatever it was, it’s still very interesting!
Anyway, I hope your Wednesday is off to a great start! I don’t have much time to write, and I want to be sure to get all the good vittles mentioned (yep, I did just use that word), so I’ll just jump right into my What I Ate Wednesday.
This week, I had some fresh, delicious, flavorful blueberries and Cascadian Farm granola to top my usual Greek yogurt. Soooo gooooood.
I’ve decided to make my life easier while working by making my lunches ahead of time. This includes any baking or cooking that I might have to do. So, on Sunday, I cooked up a whole bunch of tofu (I sprinkled some seasonings and breadcrumbs over this batch) and have been eating it in salads, like this one.
Alright, y’all…I don’t think there is any way to photograph gumbo to make it look delicious. But despite that, my first attempt at making gumbo – for Father’s Day dinner – was a success!
Another fantastic dinner we had over this past week was this prosciutto and provolone-stuffed chicken. My mom made this a few nights ago and wow. Just wow.
When we were last at Costco, my mom picked up a magazine called “Chicken.” Yep, just chicken. Inside are dozens or incredible chicken recipes, which is where we got the two above. It’s by far one of the best cookbook/magazines I’ve ever seen!
Finally, last night I came home from 10 hours of babysitting tired, hungry, and not in the mood to spend too much time in the kitchen. The result: these incredible, simple vegetarian quesadillas. Open-faced quesadillas, I guess. I will definitely be sharing this recipe next week for Meat Free Monday.
In addition to that, I’ve been enjoying another batch of my Strawberry Frozen Yogurt. Talk about some summer-y desserts!

This is going to sound super boring, but I really don’t have too much more to share! For a recap of my week, please feel free to pop on over to my week in review.
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
