Project Life: Week 32

I saw a post from Ali Edwards a few weeks ago about how she focused an entire week on the foods she ate and I loved the idea! I wanted to wait for a kinda "down" week to try it and I love the results.

Panera danish for breakfast

Making cucumber salad another summer favorite

grilled cheese and tomato--you can see the corner where i took a bite before remembering to take a picture, I just couldn't help it, it smelled soooo good :)

simple cereal breakfast (I love me some Kix!!)

Breakfast for dinner, yummy pancakes and sausage

pizza night

the beginning stages of our tomato-potato soup, something I make every year with my sister!
