Delicious Summer Veggie Sub

The husband and I have a new grilled obsession and I’m sure it’s going to be one of your summer favorite meals too!

We first discovered this delicious vegetable sub over at a friend’s house for dinner. The eggplant and squash are so hearty that you don’t even miss the meat! Add the gooey cheese, fresh pesto and sautéed peppers- yum! This is a winning grilled sub!

One of the best part is you can make this with whatever vegetables you ave on hand. We happen to have some asparagus we needed to use so we thew it on there!

Ingredients:

1 eggplant

2-3 zucchini squash

1 bell pepper

1 onion

2 roma tomatoes

Cheese of choice  (here we used a pecorino merino but we think mozzarella is a better choice)

EVOO

Salt & pepper

For pesto:

2 cups Basil

5 gloves roasted garlic

1/2 cup EVOO

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Pepper to taste

  1. Slice onion then toss into a saucepan with olive oil until cooked.
  2. Slice up the eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper & tomatoes. Dress everything besides tomatoes lightly in olive oil and salt & pepper. Place on a hot grill until tender.
  3. Prepare pesto by throwing all ingredients in a food processor and blend until desired consistency.  Spread onto bread (if desired, toast the bread a little on the grill first!)
  4. Layer veggies onto bread, top with cheese. If you like your cheese to soften a little bit, place whole sandwich back on the grill on indirect heat until cheese melts.

I think next time we make it I want to opt for a lighter bread option, maybe a pita or half a bun and make it open face style. This is seriously though delicious, super easy and definitely worth trying out!

Closet Finds FTW

I’m not a hoarder of much of anything besides crafting and wardrobe pieces. I’m not kidding when I say I still have the skirt I wore to my high school graduation! I don’t wear it too often because I’m not really a skirt girl. It’s a basic cream colored modest mini skirt from Express that is such a wardrobe staple that I can’t part with it.  Then there are other items that aren’t such a basic piece that I have kept. If I’m being really honest with you- unless a piece gets ruined, doesn’t fit or just waaay out of […]

5 Casual Summer Sandals This Season

I’m a strong believer that a shoe can make or break an outfit. The shoe doesn’t even need to be a wow factor for this to happen- it just has to be the right shoe. For as much as I believe this for years I only wore some version of a flip flop in the summer in all the colors. I eventually graduated from a rainbow of plastic to a rainbow of leather but it wasn’t until a few years ago I started to embrace the various forms of the summer sandal. And now, I can’t stop! Of course I […]

Killer Lunch Quickie

Hi guys! Gosh, it’s been over a week since I last posted. Yikes! And a week it has been. I’m much looking forward to a glass of wine (or three) this evening! Little Miss started in the infant room at her school this week and I’m back to working full time. I was that hot mess Mom with a stream of tears down my face on our first drop off. This week has been an adjustment; emotionally & physically. I’m still trying to juggle to fit everything that I want into my day/week. (Like blogging, laundry!) Since my little lady […]

My #NSALE Under $50 Picks

Nordstrom Half Yearly  Sale started yesterday and I mean really who doesn’t love a good sale? Especially if you’re like me who aims to purchase an entire outfit for under $100 or less! Fashion is ever changing which means sometimes if you just hold off long enough a favorite item will be marked down. Combine that with free shipping and it’s like Christmas morning, am I right? I really love this one shoulder ruffle top– I think it would be great for a little happy hour fun. It comes in so many cute colors but I’d probably stick to black. This […]

3 Reasons Why I Date My Husband

My go to marriage advice to give for bridal shower/wedding games  is “continue to date one another”. Sure there are other marriage advice that I think are important but for me this one is crucial- and even more so now that we have kids. Work, career, laundry, cooking, cleaning house, paying bills, running errands- there’s a lot that happens to be a functioning adult. Then you have kids which adds another level to all the noise that is life. This can leave us feeling exhausted! It’s good  to break away from the every day routine with Adam for a little bit. As […]

SIS: Spring Into Summer Shape Up Week 4

Wow, May is kinda flying by- am I right? Over here in Dayton, the schools will be done for the year this week. Maybe it’s because I had a baby one week into 2017 but it seems crazy that summer is weeks away. (Days if you feel that Memorial Day is the official kick-off to summer like I do!) Last week my husband was out of town which made it a challenge to get the workouts complete. Truth be told, I didn’t get to all of them which means I want to make those up this week. Not really looking […]

My Poshmark Closet is Live!

I’ve been wanting to try out selling my gently used clothes on Poshmark for awhile. Last weekend at a party I got to chatting with a girl who sells regularly on Poshmark about her experience. After we talked, I couldn’t wait to go through my closet for some listings! I do not hoard much of anything in life besides wardrobe and crafting supplies. For a few years I’ve been saying I’m going to majorly purge my closet- and this might just be the start of it! I think it will be a great way to resale some of the items […]

Small Victories

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We had gorgeous weather and I spent celebrating with friends and family all weekend long- it flew by! I’m pretty excited about these striped pants. They are from last year but guys, they fit again! Yeah for small victories. In fact, I wore these last Mother’s Day and just a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant with little miss. I still have some more weight and inches to lose but it feels great to wear something in my regular size! Those tough workouts  from the Spring into Summer Shape […]
