Man, oh man, what a day.
Was anyone else’s day just a doozy? I felt like it would never end, my email never quit filling back up…just crazy! My brain feels a bit fried after the past two days.
I fueled myself through the end of the day with a green smoothie.
Thanks again for the cup Brandon!
This morning, I blended up a green smoothie to go using my last sample pack that I bought a month ago.
Guess I’m back to all spinach smoothies until there’s more $ in the bank!
Because this packet was berry flavored, I tried switching up the ingredients just a little:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 cups spinach
- Amazing Grass berry superfood packet
- 1/2 small banana
- 1/4 cup orange juice
I loved the mix of the berry flavor + orange juice! Very good.
There wasn’t a run on the schedule for today and coming home to this just made my night!
Look how perfect and cinnamon-y that is!
After drooling over the treats, I got started on dinner – mainly so I could hurry up and eat my meal and dig into the kanelbullar ;)
We had leftover chili to use, so instead of just having it a bowl like last night, I tried to morph into something else.
I cut some potatoes into fry-shapes, seasoned with salt/garlic/smoked paprika, and cooked in the oven at 425 for about 40 minutes on a foil-lined baking sheet (less clean up!).
While the fries were cooking, I cut up some broccoli to roast, too.
After 20 minutes, I flipped the fries and put the broccoli in the oven for 15 minutes to roast.
Then I just made a pile and dug in!
Fries, chili, and scallions with a side of broccoli.
Too bad there’s no football on tonight – this would be the perfect meal!
And yes…I just had one of these.
They are awesome. Nick and I both love them, and I’m glad there are 2 bags of them. One bag for me, one for him :)
What’s your favorite chili topping or add-in?
I love scallions, red onion cheese, avocado/guacamole, and I always used to eat my chili over rice. So good. I should do that again.
