Hey guys 🙂
Hope y’all had a good Monday. I had a great afternoon of girl talk over soy awake tea lattes with Kelly!
Girlfriends are the best, aren’t they?! Whenever we get together we talk non-stop and then look at our watches and realize it’s been, like, three hours. That’s the mark of a good friendship!
For a snack after tea, I had a half cup of TJ’s yogurt with Kashi:
Got some work done this afternoon and then for dinner I got creative.
Technically, yes I do own a microwave…..BUT it’s in my garage because it really doesn’t fit in my kitchen and I never use it because it’s a pain to haul in the house. And why microwave when you can do pretty much anything in a cast iron??! Tonight I heated up some frozen broccoli and edamame in the good ol’ skillet and then added some shrimp and some TJ’s harvest blend quinoa (LOVE that stuff). I then tossed the whole concoction with some delicious sauces I found in zee fridge:
Twas lovely. Really. And oh so healthy, too!
However, after said healthy dinner my sweet tooth really started talking to me and I ended up going to Yogurt Time and getting this bad boy:
Un-freakin-believable. I went to town. This was mint frozen yogurt with (get ready) a little bit of oreo, chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs and (here it comes) CARAMEL SAUCE! I am 100% a caramel sauce girl. I love chocolate like none other but when it comes to sauce on my ice cream, I go caramel all the way. This reminded me of my favorite collegiate treat of TCBY white chocolate mousse froyo with caramel sauce on top. We had a drive through TCBY in Tuscaloosa and it became an addiction.
I thought the contents of my fridge were funny so I decided to photograph them for you.
Don’t you love the randomness of my million lemons, ultimate burn hot sauce (this is the hot sauce I acquired from the legendary “let’s get hot and sauced party” at Adam and Rocky’s house), sourdough starter and piece of ginger? I need to make something lemony tomorrow for sure. Good times.
I keep procrastinating but I need to write my Health.com article tonight still.
