Things I Love Thursday

Iowa Sweet Corn


It’s that time of year again when the fridge is filled with juicy Iowa sweet corn from my father-in-law’s garden. The corn is especially flavorful this year and so it makes a frequent appearance on our dinner table!

Baked Parmesan Zucchini Rounds


A friend (Hi Traci!) introduced me to this recipe via Pinterest and let me tell you, this recipe is AMAZING and so simple. The zucchini turns out creamy, cheesy, and delicious. This is the perfect way to use up all of that zucchini!

Colby’s Kettle Corn – Salty Sweet Addiction


I received a bag of this kettle corn from a new partner, Kettle corn is a favorite food of mine, so this was perfect. I love the combination of sweet and salty—yum! This is the perfect snack at only 3 PointsPlus per serving, which is a generous 1.5 cups. I love that the only ingredients are popcorn, corn oil, sugar, and salt.

Fresh Garden Tomatoes


One of my favorite things about summer…fresh & juicy garden tomatoes! My favorite way to eat them is sandwiched between two pieces of light Miracle Whip slathered toast. My stomach is growling just thinking about it.

Tyson Grilled & Ready Diced Chicken Breast


I bought a bag of the oven roasted diced chicken breast a couple of weeks ago. It is perfect for the times that I have not planned appropriately and it’s lunchtime and the Little One is ready to eat. I can just pop these in the microwave and we’re ready to go with a healthy meal. I especially like to add them to a salad.

What are you loving this Thursday?


  1. Today is the last day of Owen's summer swim session. He ALWAYS asks for a DQ after a meet and many times after a practice. We usually say yes to after a swim meet only.

    Since tonight is his last practice he asked if we could go....then, I got an email from DQ (yes, I get random special info. from them ;-) today they are donating $1 to the Children's Miracle Network from every blizzard purchased!! Score!

    Double win in my book....kind of loving that!

  2. Mmmm, everything looks so good! I love kettle corn too.

    The only thing I would change about your tomato sandwich is the Miracle Whip; definitely change that out for some Hellmann's mayo! :)

  3. I'm a little late, but decided to join in today!

  4. Mmmm. Your zucchini rounds look so good. Will have to try that.

  5. I love the Tyson chicken and steak, only I like the slices/strips better. I love to cook them in a skillet and let them get browned. Mmmm.

  6. Yum!! Everything looks so good! :) I love the chicken as well! The shredded is the best!
