Good morning, everyone! Did you all have a fantastic weekend? Here’s a little peek at what was happening over here…
So to wrap up our weekend, we had a few of our friends over to watch some football (specifically, the Giants game since most of our guests are big G-men fans). It was sort of pulled together last minute on Saturday night, but we still managed to get some snacks ready for everyone.
Brian was impressed, can’t you tell?
We had all sorts of tortilla chips, veggies, a cream cheese/salsa/cheddar cheese dip, and some healthier guacamole.
I also made these buffalo chicken crescent puffs, since I already had all of the ingredients on hand.
They were a little time consuming but everyone really seemed to like them so it was worth it.
Of course, there were also some sweets. Both Mal and I wound up making cookies for the day – hers were chocolate chip, mine were toffee chocolate chip – both were awesome.
A little later in the evening, we called and ordered a couple of pizzas.
I definitely enjoyed a couple pieces of pizza, plenty of guacamole, and a few cookies throughout the day. Lots of good football food for all!
Today’s breakfast included a new-to-me kind of cereal, and I have a feeling that it may excite some of you just as much as it excited me. Are you guys ready for this?
Raise your hand if you were a fan of Corn Pops cereal growing up. **raises hand**
WELL, I came across a new Kashi cereal last week, Simply Maize, and I am not kidding you when I say it tastes exactly like Corn Pops.
Besides the fact that I love how it tastes like Corn Pops and totally brings me back to my childhood, I love the fact that it’s got a super simple ingredient list; only 4 ingredients.
I am definitely a fan.
Today’s cereal bowl included half Simply Maize, half Quaker Oatmeal Squares (it’s been WAY too long!), strawberries, chia seeds, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
Hope everyone’s Monday is off to a great start so far…catch ya laterrrrr!
