Automatically Yummy

Mornin’ folks!

After a great night of sleep (8 hours, baby!) I’m ready to tackle this day…who’s with me?!?

Dinner last night was super delicious, thanks to a little action on the grill.


Earlier in the day, I marinated some chicken breasts in a little Italian dressing (one of our quickest, favorite ways to grill chicken), and Jay took care of cooking them up once he got home from work.


But the chicken wasn’t alone on that grill…we also grilled up some sweet potato wedges and theyyyyy werrrre awesome.


I tossed them in a little canola oil, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and oregano, before cooking them up on the grill for about 20 minutes (we have a grill pan so they wouldn’t fall through the grates). This was probably one of my favorite batches in a long time…crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

Then again, I swear that you could cook just about anything on the grill and it’s just automatically yummy, no? Smile

I followed up dinner with the same dessert I had on Tuesday night, along with a couple spoonful’s of homemade frosting.  Jay let me know yesterday that the guys at work were requesting some cupcakes, so I figured I’d make them some since it’s been a while since I last sent a batch in. This latest batch was a new one for me, and oh my goodness, it was incredible. I’ll be sharing asap, promise!



I have a couple clients this morning, so breakfast had to be quick and easy.


Along with some iced coffee, I toasted up a whole wheat bagel thin and topped it with some peanut butter, pumpkin butter, banana slices, and chia seeds.


One of THE best combos, ever, if ya ask me.


Gotta head to work, which will be followed by a trip to Target. Oh boy…somebody put a padlock on my wallet, please? Winking smile

    Jealous of the opportunity to shop though I may do some online perusing during lunch! :) Really want to try pumpkin butter! It sounds amazing, I had a hard enough time getting canned pumpkin shipped in though!

    Yep, the grill makes anything perfect. My boyfriend and I cooked for his veggie-hating family, and they DEVOURED the packet of zucchini, squash, onions and carrots that we foil-wrapped and grilled up when they did their brats. Then again, maybe it was the horseradish aioli we made on the side – I wanted to bathe in that sauce! The combo just may have turned them into veggie eaters 😉

    If I had my way, TJ would be grilling out every night. Sadly, I can’t convince him. lol. Target always drains my wallet, and the Target by house is remodeling and will have fresh produce beginning next Thursday. Talk about one stop shop.

    I hate shopping (online is the way to go for me!) but I love Target and Costco. :) Can’t wait to see what awesome cupcakes you created!

    I have been craving a healthy version of sweet potato fries for a while now. Those look absolutely amazing, and my stomach definitely is growling now!
    I always say Target is where my money goes to die…and since when I use my card I get 5% off and some of the money kicks back to the school I teach, I use that as an excuse to justify my spending!
