We took Autumn for her first swim class on Sunday. OMG! So adorable!!!
Since having Autumn Price and I have really been making a point to have dinners together at the table. No more eating in front of the TV. She has no idea what is going on but it’s just nice to feel more settled at dinner with all 3 of us involved. When she was younger we would put her in her bouncy seat and put that on the table. Now that she is a whole 4 1/2 months (ha!) she sits in her high chair and ‘eats’ her hands.
I really try to plan out dinner for the week so that it’s quick prep time for us to make or finish assembling the meal. Some days it’s salad. Some days it’s soup. Some days it’s tacos. The best meals are quick to prepare and make enough food for leftovers. But leftovers get played out and boring. So then you have to turn to trying something new so that it makes dinner together so much fun.
These Crispy Asian Fish Sandwiches are just the perfect solution for changing things up for dinner.
And that is why I love participating in Secret Recipe Club so much since I get to learn about other people’s blogs and get to try new to me recipes. So much fun!
This month I had another Nicole’s blog called Hapa-Tite. She has such a fun blog with great recipes that highlight her diverse background that include Chinese, Cherokee, German, and American, all while being culturally Hawai’ian. Plus it was fun to get a blog from a fellow Nicole!!
We picked these sandwiches out because we realized that we hadn’t had fish in awhile so it would be good to try something new when incorporating more fish into our dinner routines. This sandwich has great flavors and textures so it really elevates things from your standard fish sandwich.
I made some minor changes to the recipe that Nicole shared because of what I could get at the grocery store and some preferences. I was on my 2nd trip to the grocery store and I couldn’t find chives so I grabbed some green onions instead to still have that onion-y flavor in the sandwich. Then instead of the wasabi mayo, I made a sauce with some mayonnaise, wasabi and a few other things I grabbed from the fridge since I knew we wouldn’t actually eat wasabi mayo so it wouldn’t get used so there was no sense in buying it.
We loved this recipe because of the flavors, textures, and ease of putting together. We’ve already been talking about when we would make this again. This would be a great dinner option for you if you are in the middle of lent as well!
This Crispy Asian Fish Sandwich is a real winner for lunch or dinner. I swear that you will be hooked. whomp whomp!

What is your favorite drink to enjoy during the summer? Is it a beer? A glass of sangria? A glass of icy cold lemonade? Well, I love it all. I had such a hard time picking a drink to share for this week’s “Summer Time Favorites” themed Thirsty Thursday post. I wanted to share something that I find really refreshing and is simple to prepare because you don’t want to be stuck inside making a drink, you want to be outside enjoying it!
Watermelon Agua Fresca is a perfect summer time drink. I can’t get enough of it at this point. I’m really missing beer, chilled white wines, and sangria now but this Watermelon Agua Fresca is really hitting the spot right now.
I keep buying watermelons like they are going out of style. I don’t think I’ve ever eating so much watermelon in my life this summer. And now I’m drinking it. It’s just hard to resist it since it is at its peak freshness for such a short period of time.
Oh, and on the plus side I don’t have a watermelon sized bump… yet.

I really love the heat of summer but this summer is kinda getting to me. Really, I hate to say that since summer is my favorite season. But this summer has been intense from chilly weeks of rain in June to the hot soupy humid weather now. But I’m gonna plan on blaming my distaste for this summer on The Bean. For example, I just feel extra gross and I can’t stay hydrated no mater how much water I drink (easily averaging 100+ ounces a day). Plus I can’t enjoy the fun drinks that are fantastic to sip on in the summer.
Case in point, the Strawberry Daiquiri!!! When we decided on our Frozen Drinks theme for our weekly Thirsty Thursday posts I thought of this since we enjoyed so many of them on our cruise last year.
I think I need to mix up a virgin (womp whomp) batch since Price had to do the dirty job of drinking up the half batch I made one morning. Such is the life. ha! But I really need to make these again since the sweet smell of strawberries filling our kitchen was intense and lovely. I used fresh strawberries that I cut up and froze since when I first read the recipe I quickly mixed up frozen with fresh so I just needed to give my berries a bit of a deep freeze before getting to making this frozen drink.
Amanda has made a Skinny Frozen Pina Colada that I wish I could dive into. It looks awesome plus it is a skinny version. The best for the summer… a refreshing pool side drink that doesn’t make you regret sipping on it in your bathing suit.
