So I still have more Europe details that I want to share (only 1 more post … I promise!), but I’m taking a break for today because it’s Wednesday! And Wednesday means …
… WIAW, hosted by Jenn!
Nothing new here!
Leftover chicken stir-fry. So delicious and so healthy! Go check out the recipe. It’s an oldie, but a goodie!
I’m still loving cherries! I will be so sad when they go out of season!
This plate, x2. Believe it or not, I’m back to cooking in the old crock pot! These were steak tacos, and they were delicious! Recipe to come soon!
(I topped the tacos with guacamole, which was probably my favorite part. If you’ve never made homemade guac, you need to, stat. It’s so easy and so incredibly tasty!)
Another one of Katie’s amazing dessert ideas!
Last time, I tried Katie’s Deep Dish Cookie Pie.
And it was dangerously good.
This time, I made her Chocolate Chip Blondies.
And they were equally amazing.
I’d say the blondies were very similar to the cookie pie, except there’s peanut butter in the blondies and not in the pie. So the blondies tasted more like a chocolate chip, peanut butter cookie.
And I loved every bite.
Click on the link above for Katie’s recipe. I promise, if you follow her instructions, you won’t be disappointed. And you’ll never believe that you’re really eating chickpeas!!
(Shhh … don’t tell your husbands. What they don’t know won’t hurt them. )
This month is also supposed to be about fitness, but I can’t lie. Since getting back from Europe, I have literally done zero working out. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
My lame excuse? I just started my new job, and my current gym is a good distance from both my work and my house. And I don’t feel like driving over there. Sad, but true.
So I think I’m going to switch to a new gym, because if I don’t, I know I’ll never convince myself that the drive is worth it! It was no big deal in the summer when I wasn’t working full time, but now, it’s a different story!
Since I didn’t do anything fitness-related this week, let’s talk about the Olympics instead! After all, just watching the Olympians perform makes me more fit, right?
What has been your favorite event to watch? For me, it’s definitely gymnastics. I just love Gabby Douglas! And my heart broke for Jordyn Wieber when she was crying after failing to advance to the individual all-around competition! All of those young women are so incredibly strong and talented. I’m amazed at what they can do with their bodies.
On a (somewhat) related note, I took gymnastics when I was a kid. I couldn’t even do a back walkover, after about 3 years of classes. Heck, I could barely do a one-handed cartwheel!
Life sometimes isn’t fair.
Question for ya …
Did you take any dance or gymnastics classes as a kid? Were you as awesome as I was?
