Hey guys! How was your Monday? Mine actually went really well. I used tip #3 from this morning and went on a 35 minute walk during lunch today! Not a run, but still movement, which means I’m happy 🙂 Plus, I feel like I’m so much more productive in the afternoons when I get out and about during lunch. I’m refreshed, my head is clear and I have time to prioritize and plan the rest of my day while I’m out walking!
I came home pretty hungry so while I fixed dinner, I snacked on these crunchy loves:
These chips are hysterical. They are the crispiest chips I’ve ever eaten which makes them SO fun to just chomp on as loud as you can (in the comfort of your own home, of course…nothing worse than a loud chip chomper!) Ben got semi irritated with me last night because I was crunching them so loud, but I couldn’t help it – it was too much fun!

Dinner was planned to use up some of the vegetable stock pile I have going on in my fridge. I made my Fresh Vegetable & Thyme Frittata.
Star of said frittata was this GIANT yellow squash. This is HALF of the squash… Why/how do these things grow so big?! I cut this guy in half, cut each half into quarters and then cut each quarter into thirds…phew! I used 1/3 of a quarter for the frittata. Got that?? 😀
The frittata was made the exact same way as last time but I didn’t have any leftover pasta, so I boiled 1/3 cup of acini de peppe pasta and when it had about two minutes left, I tossed in the vegetables and sun-dried tomatoes to cook/hydrate.
I also topped my frittata with cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella this time around. Mmmm…the smell of this under the broiler was unbelievable!
Perfectly melted and ready to cut.
I’m telling you – if you’ve never tried pasta in a frittata – you’ve got to ASAP! It’s so chewy and hearty. Love it!
The sundried tomatoes are absolutely necessary too. They give such a nice PoP of sweet flavor.
I had this x2. Love, love, love this meal! No oil, no extra fats – perfect. Period.
I have some more blog stuff to work on tonight so I’m skidaddling. Don’t forget to enter the Food Should Taste Good Giveaway – you have up to three ways to enter until Wednesday @ 1:00pm Central! Do it!
