Hey! How is it already thursday night?
Thought I should pop in and say hello!
This week has been a delicious one! You know how some days you have all this inspiration to cook and other weeks it’s just a chore? Sometimes nothing sounds good except take-out. :/ Truth. This week I was filled with inspiration! Of course a trip to the grocery store always helps there.
Look at this cute little onion! I bought a whole bag of Vidalia onions, which are a little bit sweeter than regular onions. And they don’t burn my eyes as bad!
It’s been a good balance of gym time and healthy eats. Always a winner in my book!
I eat eggs for breakfast pretty much every morning. The last time I didn’t have eggs was when I went out for breakfast with Jer and had Belgian waffles. Obviously. Belgian waffles are my very favorite! I want to get a waffle iron one of these days, but then I might eat waffles for every meal!
For lunch, I’ve been doing a ton of lettuce wraps. They are just so bright and fresh, perfect for hot days. Delicious, I assure you.
And hummus, in case you haven’t noticed has appeared in almost every meal. I kind of got sick of it for a while but lately I can’t stop eating it.
I did something incredibly smart when I got home from the store this week. I chopped up all my raw veggies and put them into individual bags. Now I have easy ready to go snacks! I’m slow, but trainable.
This week’s dinner winner was fish tacos hands down! I don’t know why I don’t make these more often, they are one of my favorites.
I ate three and I was stuffed.
But there’s always room for dessert! Especially one that only takes about 30 seconds.
Summer time always makes me think of peach cobbler, so I got the idea to make this really quickly in the microwave.
All you need is:
-1/2 c. fresh or canned peaches in pear juice (I used canned since that’s what I had)
-1/2 c. granola
Layer most of the granola in the bottom of a small dish, top with peaches, the remaining granola and cinnamon. Then microwave for 30-60 seconds. Tasty!
Last weekend I watched The Vow and it was one of the best chick flicks I’ve seen in a long time. Sometimes they are too overly sticky sweet or just plain unrealistic (I was NOT a fan of Something Borrowed– why would she want to end up with such a sleezebag??)
Although the whole time I was wondering what was going on with Channing Tatum’s greasy slicked hair. Does being trendy meaning not showering? Not a fan, nope. Still, if you haven’t seen it, be sure to check it out!
Have a good weekend! It’s almost here!
