Week in a Wednesay

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

We use these more than any others and are happy with them. Buy cialis cheap us? You can buy branded and generic medicines.

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.

IMG_3399Once I arrived in my old stopping grounds I immediately started a pot of coffee to sooth a killer migraine.

IMG_3410Whilst 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! 

After church on Sunday I summoned one of my best friends, Emelie, to the house for some Christmas cookie baking and catching up.

IMG_3438 IMG_3439We sipped chocolate peppermint coffee with a splash of eggnog and listened to Christmas music on Pandora while we baked.

IMG_3450 IMG_3452Unfortunately, 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 Dinner 

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

IMG_3485Whoa mama was this chicken off the wall tasty!

Ingredients

  • 4 butterflied boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese

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.

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.

IMG_3490For me: toasted english muffin + Morning Star soy sausage patty + egg white + leftover goat cheese & hot pepper sauce.

This breakfast made me remember how much I enjoy savory morning meals.

IMG_3493For Dad: toasted english muffin + swiss cheese + deli turkey + whole egg + honey mustard mayonnaise.

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.

IMG_3496Leftover brussels + grilled chicken + green beans + goat cheese + hot pepper raspberry chipotle sauce (kind of obsessed lately) with a side of fitness bread I picked up from Fresh Market today.

Annnd that sums up the past week! Now I’m off to watch a movie with the boyfriend. Have a good night y’all!

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! And for all my Alabama friends – happy finals week!

My weekend was very laid back…

And full of studying. Chemistry – you better watch out, cause I’m coming for you tomorrow at 11:30am!

Friday I attended my very first CrossFit class! (Thanks for coming with, AuBrey!) More to come on that later.

But it’s safe to say I officially have OCD (Obsessive CrossFit Disorder). Yes, it’s real.

Before I start talking food, since this is a food blog after all, I need to mention someone’s birthday…

Happy way belated birthday to the boyfriend, Stephen! I just couldn’t not mention it on the blog even though it was on Thursday of last week. And I needed an excuse to use this picture. How cauuute is this dog?!

And if that wasn’t cute enough for you…

Then this one has to be! If you don’t follow Cute Emergency on Twitter you’re seriously missing out. This picture was captioned “Uh, what do I do? #FirstKiss”. Too funny.

Ok. Now for what was on the food scene this weekend. Since I always snap pictures of my breakfast and usually slack on lunch and dinner, I am only showing the latter two!

Friday I hit up Chipotle with Jordan and Brookley. (Sorry for the lack of food in this picture. I always remember to take a picture of what I ate after I polish it off. :?) I love Chipotle – minus how heavy handed they are. My gosh, they give you enough guacamole to serve at a party! So I always have to specify just a liiiittle bit of this and not too much of that. They probably think I a weirdo but oh well! 😛

For dinner on Friday I was feeling snacky so I put together a veggie plate. Green beans, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, 2 wasa crackers, and a healthy serving of hummus. 😉 Mm mm mmm.

Saturday’s lunch was my absolute favorite salad from Newk’s. Simply Salad with grilled salmon and all the fixin’s – croutons, chopped pickles, banana peppers, hot pepper relish, parmesan cheese, and sherry vinaigrette. Deeelish.

Fast forwarding to Sunday’s dinner (since I didn’t take a picture of Saturday’s dinner or Sunday’s lunch :|). A Kashi frozen meal was on the menu…I think this one was chicken penne of some sort. Just before I was about to dig in I was like…Wait. Where da veggies at?!

So I chopped and steamed up some green beans and zucchini. The zucchini is hiding underneath all those beans, promise.

Tossed it all together and viola! Veggies + frozen meal = healthy meal. Ah…that’s better. 🙂

That concludes the meal pictures for this post. I wrote down a little blogging schedule yesterday in attempt to make myself more accountable to daily posts. Let’s hope it works! Catch you guys tomorrow.

Have a kick ass Monday!
