Good morning! Aren’t you glad it’s Friday?!?!
So, like I said before, I added some oats to my smoothie yesterday, and it didn’t really do much to change the color:
But it definitely added some bulk and some chew! I don’t know if I was the biggest fan, but after adding the oats it definitely kept me full a lot longer. Not that it mattered though, since I had a Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip square cookie x 2:
Seriously y’all, Jessica is a GENIUS. I had people at my office say that these were the best thing they’ve ever had, and I bake for them every week! I did the Heather’s Dish lazy version, and rather than make them into individual cookies I just smashed all of the dough in a 9 x 13 pan and baked at 325 for 30 minutes. In the last minute I poured the rest of the chips (peanut butter and chocolate chips) on top, stuck it back in the over for a minute, then used a spatula to spread the melted goodness around for some “icing.” YUM!
Lunch was a Lean Cuisine BBQ chicken pizza because I’m fancy like that:
And then dinner went undocumented (oops)! We went over to our old boss’s house (well, she’s our friend too, obviously) and hung out with her for a couple of hours. I had 2 glasses of red wine, countless chips & green chili salsa, 1/2 of a chicken sausage, and half of a cowboy burger from Whole Foods. We had such a good time hanging out and talking! We miss you Shannon!
When we got home at 8(?) I’m pretty sure I just walked right upstairs and went to sleep. I woke up at 11:30, washed my face and brushed my teeth, then went back to sleep! Guess I was tired, huh? I am really excited for this weekend though…my parents are coming in town! So tonight will be spent ferociously cleaning our house so that we don’t look like slobs 😉
What are you doing for the 4th of July weekend? Any fun traditions? Any favorite recipes? We are cleaning tonight so that we can hang out with friends and play sand volleyball, swim, and eat tomorrow! I usually just do 4th of July by the seat of my pants, but I always love a good BBQ
Hope you guys have a great one!
