I’m obsessed with fresh corn right now. Is there anything better in summer than fresh sweet corn?
I made the most amazing ice cream yesterday. It was a sweet corn base and then I layered in crumbled homemade cornbread.
The best. I wish I could pass you a scoop because I know cornbread in ice cream sounds crazy. But trust me.
What’s your favorite way to use fresh corn?
I’m also currently obsessed with very quickly cooking it with bacon and green onions. Which is exactly what this Fresh Corn and Bacon Sauté. You aren’t going to believe how easy it is!7
Happy Saturday, y’all!
I’m currently binge-watching the new Orange Is The New Black season – so good! I simultaneously love and hate that they release all the episodes at once because now I’ll have to wait another year for more! Gahhhh!
This week’s menu plan looks amazing! We’ve got my favorite summer salad, grilled chops, a couple pastas, and cheesy chicken. Plus, the most delicious looking cheese fries! Aaaaaand scones and chocolate cake!
Don’t forget to print our your grocery list before you head to the store!

Are you loving summer?
I’m loving summer. This has been the best summer of my life and we’re only a few weeks in. My kids are all at really good ages for outdoorsy things right now and we’re just really loving everything central Texas has to offer.
Plus, we’re counting down the days to our next roadtrip!
Wait. Another roadtrip with 3 boys and a dog?
Amanda, are you crazy?
Let’s talk about that post-vacation slump.
You know, when you don’t want to go back to real life so you’re still eating junk for every meal and telling yourself that you’re just too busy recovering from vacay to eat healthy. Or workout. Or do laundry. Or even take your makeup off at night.
I have been in it since I went to Salt Lake City last month. I left for New Orleans, like, a week and half later so it’s seriously been a month of unhealthy eating and skipping the gym.
This week, I’ve decided to get back on track.
I prepped a ton of veggies and proteins on Sunday (it was on my snapchat: amandalivesay) and I’ve got a fridge full of Bolthouse Farms® beverages.1
