Comfortably Stuffed

Heck! I am t-i-r-e-d! Running 9 miles makes you a) really really hungry and b) REALLY tired. I swear!

This afternoon I was delighted to see THESE back at the store!



And these are always delicious….


We celebrated with some delicious Cambria Katherine’s vineyard chardonnay this evening—



What were we celebrating? Who knows. Life? Sunday? I rocked my sweatpants from freshman year so it was all good. I’m just going to say: I love dressing up but I reallyyyy love my comfy sweats, too. These are like the sisterhood of the traveling pants, but in sweatpants. They’ve seen me through some crazy times!

My mom made this mustard maple panko crusted chicken out of the latest issue of Bon Appetit and we had it with Annie’s mac & cheese and broccoli—


It was pretty much the perfect meal.

And then I went with my dad to the frozen yogurt shop after dinner and got a peanut butter/brownie batter swirl with oreo. No words.

Okay, I think I’ve successfully made up my calories for the day and now feel comfortably stuffed, happy and sleepy. I’m not gonna lie—about to climb into bed and read and it’s only 8:06. This is what the cool kids do on Sunday night. Clearly.

    I love your blog. Thant panko crusted chicken looks totally delish. I will have to buy the new issue and try it.

    Have a good evening.

    Way too fuel! After 9 miles the body definitely deserves and demands some ice cream like that

    LOVE honeycrisp apples! I haven’t seen them out yet though. Totally jealous. 😉 I’m totally obsessed with Synergy drinks… AHmazing.

    And what a great dinner! Annie’s goes good with just about everything!

    I love that HoneyCrisp’s are back too! They are my favorite, by far.

    There is seriously nothing better than a great pair of comfy sweats, especially worn in ones. I’m embarrassed to say, I have a pair that I wear (at my house only of course) from my high school senior year!

    Have a good night!

    That ice cream shot made tears come to my eyes.

    Next weekend, I vote a trip to the city is in order for moi to get some real gelato.

    Rock those sweatpants!

    That dinner looks wonderful- is the chicken made in the oven or on the stove? Love panko crumbs…
    Have a great night. I love getting in bed early!

    Honeycrisp apples are so good they are dessert just in themselves. I like to add some almond butter for icing 🙂

    Wearing sweatpants and being relaxed is the best feeling after a long day and just enjoying yourself.

    I think honeycrisp apples are my all time fav. The perfect sweetness and they are always so crunchy…they never disappoint!
    p.s. that has to be the best fro-yo combo ever, I’m a little jealous

    I’m so jealous! Our Whole Foods don’t have honey crisp yet nor did the farmer’s market. 🙁 I can’t wait to get my hands on some. I think finding honey crisp apples are an excellent reason to celebrate on a Sunday afternoon!

    I’d rather dress down than up any day of the week. Sad, but true. I’m just not the girly-girl type.

    Where do you buy your produce from typically because those apples look yummy!

    You crack me up! Hey, we have had no less than FOUR healthy fro-yo places pop up here in my little Oklahoma town! The trend has moved into the central plains! 🙂 My mom, grandma and I went to Orange Tree and it was so neat! The chocolate tasted just like ice cream and the plethora of toppings was amazing!
