Morning and happy Wednesday!
Can’t help it. Pretty excited to be halfway through the work week. I’m running very late this morning, so enough chit chat, and onto the main event! Here are my eats!
(1 egg + 1 egg white) and a few grapes that are really out of season and lackluster. Is it spring yet? I really miss fresh produce. Salty, savory, and a little sweet. Great way to start the day! Oh, I also enjoyed a hot cup of English Toffee coffee! I hadn’t tried this Green Mountain flavor before and I just had to buy it when I came across it at Christmas Tree Shop. FYI: K-cups are soooo much cheaper at Christmas Tree Shop! I got 66 cups for about $30! I also picked this up at CTS. My favorite colors and it’s keeping me super hydrated.
By the time lunch came around I was craving a little spice. Growing up I was never a spicy food lover, and I don’t think I had ever tried hot sauce before meeting Nolan, the buffalo chicken king. It is safe to say that after 8 years with the king, I am a fan. I made up a batch of buffalo chicken salad using a can of chicken, 1 wedge of Laughing cow, and about 2 tbsp of Franks.
Dinner was a comfort food favorite, crock pot chicken pie.
Before I left for work in the morning I threw two boneless chicken breasts into the crock pot with 1/2 a can of cream of chicken and a cup of water. By the time I got home I had the most delicious pot of shredded chicken that was moist, flavorful,
and melt in your mouth good. I transferred the chicken into a 9 inch pie pan, juices and all, and then added a layer of frozen spinach and my favorite frozen vegetable mix from Shaw’s. It’s a mix of peas, green beans, corn, carrots, and Lima beans. I topped it with a Pillsbury pie crust and baked it at 400 for about 15 minutes, until the crust was golden brown. Oh so good. Since the crock pot did all the work this meal took me about 17 minutes to put together after I got home.
A little while later I was craving something sweet and I had just the thing! While standing in line at the produce market I shop at, one of these caught my eye. I am a sucker for all things hazelnut, especially chocolate so I didn’t even hesitate.
OH.MY.GOSH. This mini chocolate bar transformed me to a magical place! It is seriously the best thing I have eaten in about 2 weeks. At only 90 calories, this .6 oz of milk chocolate and crunchy, salty hazelnuts made me giddy. And it was only $0.29! I wish I had grabbed like 10 of them. I definitely need to stock up.
Well, there ya go! Gotta run, catch ya later!
