Farm Fresh Strawberries And Nachos

Hi friends! It’s Thursday which means we’re one day closer to the weekend. So far the week has been a good one and the heat and humidity hasn’t been a factor which is nice after what felt like two weeks of never ending humidity. I have my long run this afternoon so I’m hoping the clouds stay put to keep the sun away. Have a great day 🙂

Wednesday started out nice and early when my alarm went off. When I went to bed Tuesday night, it was raining and we left our window open in the bedroom to listen to it. The smell after rain is honestly so refreshing so waking up to it was a nice treat. After getting ready for the day, it was time for breakfast. Scrambled eggs and a muffin always save the day by making mornings so easy.

During lunch at work, I popped open my Nook to read more of The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand. It’s the story of identical twins, Tabitha and Harper, whose parents divorce when they are in college. Tabitha goes with their mother, Eleanor, on Nantucket while Harper goes with their father, Billy, to Martha’s Vineyard. After 14 years of not speaking to each other, despite the islands being 11 miles apart, the twins are brought back together due to Billy’s passing. They decide to spend the summer on opposite islands. So far I’m enjoying the book and I may have an idea of how it’s going to end. It’s a great summer read if anyone is in the market for a book!

After work, I decided to head to the farm stand that I drive by every day to pick up some strawberries. I had finished all the fruit I bought at the grocery store and decided to see how the farm’s selection was. I walked away with a big container of the most juicy and delicious strawberries I think I’ve ever had. If I didn’t stop myself, I could have eaten the whole container. When Alex got home from his run, we leashed Bailey up and headed for a walk before reading on the couch before dinner.

Dinner was leftovers last night. We had leftover beans and turkey from tacos on Tuesday night so I decided to make some loaded nachos. They turned out so well! I layered chips with the beans, meat and cheese before popping it in the oven to melt the cheese and warm it all up. When it was ready, I topped it with a bunch of lettuce and dipped it in salsa. It was amazing! Alex had leftover Pad Thai but was still hungry since there wasn’t too much left. After eyeing my dinner, he decided to use the remaining little bit of beans and turkey to make nachos to fill him up.

The rest of the night was relaxing and I read some more. We ended the night cuddled up watching The Office before drifting off to sleep.

Question of the day: Loaded nachos – yes or no? Some people don’t like them!

  1. YES to loaded nachos! A friend and I were just talking about these yesterday and she joked about how the “nucleus” of the nachos is the best part since the very center of the plate always has the most toppings!

  2. Loaded nachos sound wonderful. LOVE fresh strawberries. When I bought my first pint this year, I ate all of them on the 10 minute drive from the farm to my house. I had to turn around and buy 2 more pints. Now they are selling them by the quart, so I don’t have to make the trip to the farm quite as often. 🙂

    1. I highly recommend loaded nachos when you have leftover meat/beans from tacos or burrito bowls. I had serious self control with them but only because I have fruit as a snack at work. I think the rest will be eaten as dessert tonight though 🙂
