Peach & Burrata Salad
Why do I always think of salads of having to have greens? Salads can be whatever you want them to be…like fruit and cheese. And burrata cheese is LIFE! I think it may be my favorite cheese of all time. The other day, when I really had no clue what I wanted to make for lunch, I found some peaches and fresh apricots in the fridge and decided they needed to be made into a meal. It’s not rocket science, ya know? I think we tend to overcomplicate things when it comes to meals. All you simply have to do is add your favorite fruit to a bowl, add something salty like cured meat, and then top it with cheese and herbs. It’s the simplest of foods that always seem to be the greatest.
Speaking of peaches…I had the most delightful baked good the other day. Probably one of the best baked goods I’ve ever eaten. It was a peach ginger cruffin. Have you ever had a cruffin before? It’s a croissant, but it’s baked like a muffin, which is somehow way better than a normal croissant shape. I don’t want to be a hater, but I could really care less about croissants. UNLESS it’s an almond croissant at Maman bakery in New York. That croissant was INSANE. Well I had this peach ginger cruffin from Moon Raccoon Bakery over the weekend and it was a thing of pure beauty. Luscious peach jam-like substance filled the crevices of the tall croissant with tiny pieces of candied ginger ready to change up your tastebud expectations. It was glorious. My sister-in-law brought it to me from the farmer’s market and I requested that she brings one to me every weekend now. She agreed and this is why we are best friends…she just gets me and my needs.
Since I’m currently feeling a bit chained to our house as I feed our child sometimes every hour, I’ve been watching A LOT of tv lately. I need to download some audiobooks to listen to because my pediatrician told me today that TV isn’t great for a newborn. Whoopsies. Still learning this whole I HAVE A NEWBORN LIVING IN MY HOUSE thing. But food shows have just been my happy place. My pregnancy obsession was The Great British Baking Show because it just put me in a great mood every episode. Then I moved to Street Food on Netflix, which makes me want to travel again and eat all the random things. But that season was very short lived so I moved on to Somebody Feed Phil and it’s AWESOME. There are about a million episodes in all different places and all the food he eats looks amazing. I want to see if he has a site with a list of all the restaurants he eats at so I can make it a priority to go to these places someday. When that day will be…I have no clue. I’m still nervous to go to the grocery store by myself with a newborn, let alone a different country. We will get there, though. Until then, it’s time to download some audiobooks! And eat some more peaches. Kloveyoubyeeeeee.

Could you mute the TV and put on closed captioning/ subtitles? I get that maybe TV isn’t relaxing for a baby, but what’s a momma to do during those endless hours of feeding?
I’m not totally sure, but I think it’s about more than just the sound of the tv. here’s a great article i found about it – https://www.healthychildren.org/English/family-life/Media/Pages/Why-to-Avoid-TV-Before-Age-2.aspx
I’m going to make this tonight — it looks so delicious. Thanks for the dinner recipe. PS: I’m so happy for you about little Avery. I love seeing your stories on Instagram.
