Hello everyone! My apologies for going MIA the past week. I’ve been enjoying my time at home so much that I put my computer on the back burner. However, I still managed to keep my camera in mind so I could show you all what I’ve been up to!
Friday – Homeward Bound
Friday morning after CrossFit I made my way home for the break – leaving my cozy dorm room behind. Before I completely
over packed up my things I thought I’d snap a few pictures of my room so 1) I’ll remember where everything goes when I get back and 2) because I’m a little obsessed with it.
Whilst sipping on my pipping hot mug of caffeine and reading Kristin’s Friday Favorites mom and I saw something that appealed to the both of us: Crock Pot Rancher’s Roast Beef, and so dinner was decided.
Saturday – …
The only somewhat exciting thing that happened on Saturday was a comfortable and chatty 3.5 mile run with Mom.
Sunday – Christmas Cookies Atlas!Â
After church on Sunday I summoned one of my best friends, Emelie, to the house for some Christmas cookie baking and catching up.
Unfortunately, there was no such thing as a gingerbread man cookie cut-out or any festive cookie cut-out for that matter in the house so we made due with hearts, squirrels, and acorns. (Squirrel and acorn courtesy of Madeline, love you!)
Monday – Winner Winner Chicken DinnerÂ
Stephen and I made a trip over to Huntsville to run a few errands and pick up some groceries at Earthfare for dinner – which ended being a total success by the way.
Goat Cheese + Hot Pepper Raspberry Chipotle Sauce Stuffed Chicken
- 4 butterflied boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup goat cheese
- 1/3 cup hot pepper raspberry chipotle sauce
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix together cheese and hot pepper sauce and set aside. Season chicken with salt and pepper and stuff with cheese then drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Serve along side roasted balsamic brussels sprouts and finger link potatoes. Mm mm mmm.
Tuesday – CrossFit with Dad + Breakfast
Tuesday morning I whipped up two breakfast sandwiches for me and the pops before we headed out to our first day of the CrossFit Intro course that we’re taking together while I’m home for break.
This breakfast made me remember how much I enjoy savory morning meals.
No pictures from CrossFit – sorry! 😐
Wednesday – Leftover Lunches Rule
This morning Dad and I had another intro class at CrossFit Huntsville. So far so good! I think my dad is enjoying it more than he puts off but who knows. Even if he isn’t, I know I sure am and having him there makes it all the more! 🙂
Again, no pictures from CrossFit – promise I’ll try and remember to take a few on Saturday!
When I got home from CrossFit I cleaned and organized the entire kitchen, refrigerator, freezer, pantry, and my room. Sheesh! You would’ve sworn a heard of elephants (Roll Tide?) ran through my room. After I finished cleaning I showered up and tended to my rumbling tummy.
Annnd that sums up the past week! Now I’m off to watch a movie with the boyfriend. Have a good night y’all!
