Tour de PA

This summer has been flying by! Does anyone else feel that way? Guess that happens when you’re having a blast 🙂

The past 3 weekends have been spent in Pennsylvania for wedding-related events and some adventures on the side. This past weekend Danielle, the boys and I went up to celebrate the wedding of our favorite lil’ family! Sorry in advance for the blurry pictures but I had to share.

me and reneeWe had a great time celebrating Renee, Dez and DeAngelo and danced the night away. Congrats friends!

Other adventures before the wedding included stops at Victory Brewing, Produce Junction and downtown West Chester.

The second portion of our trip included blueberry picking at Highland Orchards, a local Farmer’s Market right in West Chester. We spent some time picking delicious blueberries and enjoying the outdoors.

We left with a lot of produce including fresh veggies from Frank’s Mom’s garden which only meant one thing: Time to cook!

Baking utensils ready

Blueberries made their way into a Blueberry Muffin Loaf inspired by this blog. When you don’t have muffin tins, a loaf is a perfectly fine alternative.

The second baking creation was a Zucchini Coconut Loaf using the fresh garden zucchini

IMG_9017IMG_9035IMG_9031I changed the recipe by using Coconut yogurt instead of plain yogurt. I also didn’t have any sugar so instead used Truvia and I do not recommend doing that. Otherwise it was very doughy and delicious and full of nutrients.

Leftover zucchini and a garden squash made its way into a Quinoa veggie bowl. Homegrown veggies taste the best!
