Tripp’s Plate Tuesday: Pork

Some nights I take time to “plate”/lay out Tripp’s food on his plate and snap a picture. But MOST nights, I just feed him as I eat– right off my plate! Tonight was a “mama’s plate” kind of night šŸ˜‰ 


Tonight Tripp had:

  • Pork chop seared in ghee then baked (these are from the pork share– so good!)
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Avocado
  • Bubbies pickle 
  • A little tasting of some raw cheddar cheese
  • Bone broth

Yum!! We polished that pork chop off easily. 

So while Dada takes on bath-time, I’m treating myself to the #1 brightening mask from Beautycounter. Check it out through my online store (shop here!) and see my “mask” night routine below!  


Happy Tuesday, y’all!! 

Menu + Meal + Tripp’s Plate

Hi everyone! I am back from a little grace week and a family-filled Easter weekend. Nothing cuter than a little guy in his new outfit for Easter!


Since I am combining 3 posts in one… better get started. Here is what we have cooking this week.

#1 Menu

  • Ham, potato salad, carrots, and greens (AKA, Easter lunch leftovers!)
  • Turkey salads with walnuts, cranberries, and roasted carrots
  • Pork chops, roasted sweet potatoes, and a little kale-lemon salad
  • Beef seasoned with Italian seasoning, rice, and roasted veggies
  • Mary’s paleo lunches–> here is what we get this week
  • Breakfast–> baked oatmeal, scrambled eggs with some fruit, OR green smoothie


#2 Meal idea

  • I know many people think of salad’s as a boring pile of hard to chew greens. Well it is a pile of greens, but what makes it fun are the mix-ins! And recently I have been enjoying the Tessemea’s dressings.
  • Here is an idea… Turkey rolled up with a little Kerrygold cheese, olives, avocado, and roasted sweet potato sticks on top of mixed greens. Drizzled with Tessemae’s Caesar. 


#3 Tripp’s plate

  • Some leftover ham (it came from Whole Foods Market and was delicious!), roasted sweet potatoes, Bubbies pickle (out of olives and these are a great substitute + great probiotics!), and sautĆ©ed kale.

Don’t forget about Beautycounter’s best seller deal right now! For EACH best seller you buy (thatā€™s right, you can get multiple ones in the same order!), you get a free travel size product!

Plus foundationā€¦ and lips!! Just a great time to switch some staples to safer. Check it out hereā€”> SHOP best sellers!


Last night I actually tried out the #1 mask. This mask came from Arsy with Rubies and Radishes and I was so excited to try it. I used the baby oil to take off my eye make up, then cleansed with the charcoal bar, applied the mask, and then used the balancing oil. It was fun!

Have a great evening and happy Tuesday!
