Happy First Day of Spring!!
Does it feel spring timey where you are? It’s a bit chilly here if I do say so myself. I can’t wait for it to warm up a bit. Then Johnny and I can resume our lunchtime walks! I haaaaaaaaaate sitting all day, and once the nice weather resumes I won’t have to (as much, *sigh*)!
Sheesh, I’ve been so busy this week I haven’t posted since last Wednesday! I promise I’ll have some new recipes for you soon!
How do Black Bean Mango Stacks, Balsamic Chicken and White Bean Pasta, and Morning Glory Muffins sound to you?
Because that’s what you’ll be getting from me soon! 🙂
Anywho, did you enjoy your St. Patty’s Day?
I had a great time in NJ over the weekend with some awesomeeeeeeee family and friends. I even had my first ever green beer this year!! I didn’t’ really start drinking beer until fairly recently so I was excited to finally partake! Check out this awful picture of it! (It was a tiny guy – the way I like my beer – In small, adorably packaged quantities!)
Me and the hubs. Aren’t we just the cutest?
Here’s me and my girl Susan at Dave & Busters. Me with a vodka tonic (extra lime of course) and Susie with her ‘Bu and Coke (Malibu that is). Did you know they have four person air hockey?! I didn’t until this weekend!!! SO FUN (and terrifying)!
I indulged at bit over the weekend, though it definitely could have been worse. Only one stop at a diner isn’t all that bad all things considered! Haha. More specifically, I indulged in what I can safely call my favorite breakfast sandwich of all time … taylor ham, egg, and cheese!!! (Anyone out there with me on this?! Jersey!!) Oh gosh. It’s so glorious. I’m happy I don’t live in NJ anymore so I don’t down one of these babies every day.
After such an awesome and indulgent weekend, how about we move on to some healthy eats?! This WIAW, hosted by Jenn at Peas and Crayons, is actually what I ate yesterday. I’ve stuck pretty much to the same routine all week so far, just changing up my dinner. Hope you enjoy!!
Breakfast: Homemade whole wheat morning glory muffin with plain 0% Greek yogurt mixed with lime zest, mango, and toasted unsweetened coconut
Snack: String cheese!!!
Lunch: Half a pouch of Campbell s Go Soup Spicy Chorizo & Pulled Chicken with Black Beans (with a little extra frozen corn and shredded chicken I had on hand mixed in). It’s got a tiny kick to it, and it’s super tasty. These soups are becoming a new staple for me when I don’t have time to make my lunch!
Snack: A baby handful of YumNuts Chocolate Cashews. I can’t get enough of these guys!
ANOTHER Snack: Hey look! Finally some green (packaging). I usually don’t be pre cut fruits or veggies but a pack of 8 of these little apple pouches was less than $2. I effing love Wegmans.
Dinner: I threw together dinner super fast last night so that I could get to my yoga class on time. I had some pasta I cooked over the weekend in the fridge ready and waiting for me so I just sauteed some chicken thighs in garlic and olive oil, tossed in some bell peppers, spinach, and lemon zest, and added the pasta. Fin!
After Dinner (Not Photographed): I always love to have a cup of tea at night. Last night was decaf English Breakfast Tea with some skim milke and half of a splenda. I also had a mini morning glory muffin (because I made big guys and mini guys) while Johnny and I watched the latest (HILARIOUS) New Girl.
Ah!!! I love it!!!!
Big thanks to Vulture for making this/my day!!
