Two Pals Couldn’t Steer Me Wrong

Hey, guess what?

I FINALLY used up that butternut squash of mine yesterday.

And it is now in the form of the most incredible soup, all courtesy of my pal, Chelsey. I actually had thought I was going to make a different soup, but then the other day, I got talking with my other pal, Alyssa. She told me that she saw I had a squash to be used up and that I had to try Chelsey’s Slow Cooker Butternut Squash and Apple Soup recipe. I figured two pals couldn’t steer me wrong, so I made it yesterday and WOW. It was a fantastic decision.


Lucky for me, the thought of squash soup weirds Jay out, so it looks like the whole batch is all for meeeee. I’d love to put one of the containers in the freezer but, umm, there’s no room right now so we’ll have to see what to do about that. I’m thinking that it’s about time we bite the bullet and invest and a small chest freezer.

My soup wasn’t done until after I had my dinner last night, so even though I tasted it then, I didn’t get to enjoy a full bowl until today.


To go along with my soup, I had another awesome grilled cheese with provolone, tomato, turkey bacon, and spinach.


I really cannot get enough of this sandwich right now…it is SO good.



Earlier today, I made sure to get my reps in for the Closeout Workout Challenge:

  • 15 squats
  • 15 pushups
  • 20 lunges
  • 15 chair dips
  • 15 plie squats
  • Plus a 30 minute interval walk

I’m planning on doing another set of my reps later this afternoon, for a total of 160 reps for the day. Woot! From what I’ve seen on the challenge page, you guys are killing it with these reps so far…keep up the great work! And if you haven’t joined in yet…what are you waiting for? Winking smile


Time to get back to work…catch you guys later!

Question for the Afternoon:

What’s one thing a friend has recently recommended that didn’t steer you wrong?

    Ohh, I just picked up some more butternut, so I’m off to check out that recipe! Looks amazing! Butternut soup is just incredible. I need to get in my reps for the Closeout Challenge. Off to do that after some lunch!

    Over the weekend, my husband recommended that we make a chocolate cream pie- a dessert that we ate a lot when we first started dating but hadn’t made in a long time. It was a really good idea :)

    My friend suggested I try a black bean soup from the trader joes cookbook and it was so so good and easy to make as well!
    Have a gret Courtney!
