This week has been NUTS!
I was really glad I had Zucchini-Banana Muffins in the freezer for breakfast this morning.
D.C. was a great trip though. My meetings went really well and I had a chance to go running through the Mall Wednesday night with bossman.
If you’re ever in D.C., I highly recommend it. There’s nothing like seeing a city by way of a good run. It also makes the run go by more quickly… which I needed.
The Tough Mudder threw my body for a loop. I’m not so much sore as I am worn out. My legs feel like bricks. Spaghetti bricks.
At least I have something to show for it:
But damn it feels good to be a gangsta’.
I really missed green smoothies (and St. Patrick’s Day!) while I was traveling. File under: things I never thought I’d say.
So here’s my oops-I-missed-St. Patrick’s Day Smoothie of the Day.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake Smoothie
- 1 C unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop cookies’n’cream protein powder
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1/3 C pineapple
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 6-8ish almonds
- huge handful spinach
- ice/water (to taste)
Just what the doctor ordered to feel human again just in time to throw a wedding shower this weekend.
Shower recipes coming
Monday soon! (I may need a buffer in order to sleep at some point.)
Worth the wait: mini quiches, fruit + cannoli cream, and my favorite savory cookie recipe.
I love entertaining, but I hate the fact that you have to clean house. It seems ridiculous since you have to clean again post-party. Let’s start a movement to change expectations!
What’s your best time-saving party-prep secret?
Do you have a favorite/go-to dish to make for entertaining?
