Hello! Friday dance!

No post last night because I was doing this:


And ended up with these!

These precious duck and personalized cookies are destined for a baby shower this weekend. I sure hope they like them!



It’s for a little girl – hence the pink. I just love the combination of pink and yellow. It is so sweet 🙂


While I was working on the cookies, Ben went and got us dinner – one of my faves – Chipotle!


I just love the fresh toppings, hormone-free chicken and zesty cilantro-lime rice.

Hey! Remember my homemade chipotle rice kick!? I need to get back on that train ASAP!


So it has been scorching hot here lately, so I have definitely been craving cooler meals. I stuck with it this morning and made a Blue-Green Monster.


Now, I have been getting harassed – harassed – to include yogurt in my Green Monster by a friend who insists that it’s the best thing that ever happened to the GM. Today I finally caved and added a Blueberry Cheesecake Yogo in place of my usual almond butter!

Mmmmmmmm – I must give credit where credit is due. My friend is a genius! Every time I have a GM I talk about how smooth and creamy it is…well THIS was soooooth and creeeeamy. Oh my!


Plus the extra flavor of sweet, blueberry cheesecake was just to-die-for. Good call, friend – you rock! 😀


Today for lunch, I re-purposed my Chipotle leftovers from last night. I put them over a bed of spinach and added some perfect, cherry tomatoes.


Not sure what kind of dressing I’m going to pack for this…perhaps a dallop of good old ranch?



Ok, not going to lie – the addition of the yogurt really makes the Green Monster fill-ing. I am STUFFED! Going to roll myself out the door now…

Ugh, I just remembered that I have to go to the DOT over lunch today. My license is expired…eep!

Have an awesome Friday, all!


What’s your favorite Green Monster or other smoothie mix-in? Do you every use protein powders or mix-ins?

Yogurt was definitely bomb – but that mango from the other day was insanely good!
