I’m kinda sorta freaking out over this grilled pizza right now. For one, I actually grilled the thing. Me! All by myself. Before getting into all of the food blogging shenanigans, I would have never even gotten close to a grill! But, eventually, after watching my dad cook meat countless times on our outdoor grill, I decided to try something new.
Allow me to introduce y’all to my second recipe of this years #cookoutweek: GREEN grilled pizza! Major emphasis on the word “green,” because do I even need to explain? This pizza is the real MVP of any amazing summer cookout – fresh, vibrant, and packed with tons charred, fresh-off-the-grill flavors. And can we take a moment to appreciate how flipping amazing Trader Joe’s is? I mean, what other grocery store sells pesto gouda cheese? Pesto gouda cheese!!!
Now, I’m not going to deny that I have a lil’ bit of an obsession with the chocolate pistachio power combo. Who wouldn’t?? The crunchy, salty pistachios pair perfectly with the dark n’ sweet chocolate, and I’m also totally digging the earthy green and brown colors of these sweet treats. What’s not to love about that? Oh yeah, do yourself a huge favor and scroll down to the bottom of this post, so you can treat yourself with these chocolate pistachio ice cream sandwiches (c’mon, do it. right. now.)
Happy Sunday y’all! It’s been a pretty hectic couple of days, and now that all the craziness has somewhat subsided, I’m completely exhausted and in need of a nice, long nap. A good solid 9 hours of sleep is all I really want! Nonetheless, I’ve still got tons of chores and things to do around the house. Because I’ve been so busy, this banana nut smoothie bowl has really been a life saver for me in the mornings, and a great afternoon snack for when I get home from school. I love throwing all of my ingredients in my Ninja the night before, refrigerating it, and it’s all ready to blend and go. When I have the time, I’ll pour it into a bowl and make it fancy with nuts and bananas. It’s creamy, energizing, and super duper healthy!
There’s nothing better than knowing it’s Sunday, and that there’s no school on Monday (at least for me). Also, there’s nothing that I love more than a good road trip. Even though it can get a little boring at some points, the scenic views are absolutely gorgeous. Going on a road tripg is probably one of my favorite ways to travel, so I thought I’d share some things that are essential on a long drive.
