Breakfast Hash: Make a Hearty Breakfast with Leftover Vegetables

We LOVE roasted vegetables in the Comer household. The first dinner William and I made together after “McFly” arrived was pan seared Salmon with smashed potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts. The meal was delicious – we devoured the salmon but had some veggies leftover.

I woke up the next morning and really didn’t want soggy cereal and that’s when this “recipe” came to mind! I used leftover potatoes and brussels sprouts to come up with a hearty and delicious breakfast hash.

To make this hash you really just need four components.

  1. Leftover Roasted Starchy Vegetable (potato, sweet potato, butternut squash, etc).
  2. Leftover Roasted Cruciferious Vegetable (broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc).
  3. Breakfast protein (bacon, country ham, sausage, etc).
  4. Egg (scramled, fried, poached, or sunny side up to go on top of your hash).

Start drinking cold coffee on purpose – DIY cold brew coffee concentrate.

2019-06-30-01.03.44-1

I stopped drinking coffee in October. I literally quit cold turkey. I didn’t do it on purpose. I did it because my body (and baby) made me. It’s probably good I stopped drinking coffee because I was drinking at least 2-3 cups a day, if not more.

I’ve started drinking coffee again but have decided decaf is the route for me. I’ll be honest, was addicted to coffee and it’s been nice learning to function with having to rely on caffeine.

Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible for me to enjoy a warm cup of coffee now. I pour myself a cup and then suddently I need to feed, change, and dress the baby and by time I come back to my mug, my coffee is cold. So I figured, I need to just start drinking cold coffee on purpose.

There’s no easier way to enjoy cold coffee than by having a nice cup of cold brew iced coffee! Today I’m sharing how to easily make a batch of cold brew coffee that you can enjoy all week long for a FRACTION of the cost of Starbucks or Dunkin’.

3 Under $30 Dresses That I’m Obsessed with + Postpartum Fashion

Today I’m sharing THREE cute dresses that look good on any body shape, but that are also super accomodating for a new (and nursing mom).

One of the hardest adjustments for me during pregnancy and over the last 5 weeks has been seeing my body change so drastically and so quickly. While pregnant, I had to watch my body change to adjust to growing a human…. and now it’s changing again as I lose the “baby weight” while also producing food to keep that human alive.

I’ve been so blessed that I’ve already lost about 70% of the weight I gained during my pregnancy BUT of course my body shape is completely different than what it was before and that means I can’t wear a lot of my old clothing. My hips are wider, my chest is bigger, AND I didn’t exercise at ALL while pregnant, so I have very little muscle definition in my arms and legs.

I went on the hunt and found three dresses you can wear for different activities; fun, work, and relaxation.

FUN: Button Front Tiered Maxi Dress Р$29.99

Who doesn’t love a good maxi dress? This look is perfect for a summer picnic or casual backyard BBQ. This dress has functional buttons but it’s also lightweight. The printed fabric screams “SUMMER” to me.

V-Neck Strappy Button Front Tiered Maxi Dress

This dress is extremely comfortable and I can see it transitioning well into early fall. It would pair well with a demin jacket and suede boots.

The dress runs a little large to me. I orginally ordered this dress in a size medium but had to exchange it for a small. This small is actually still a little big (and long) on me.
