Winter Shape Up: Week 3 Meal Plan

Winter-Shape-Up-logo_thumb1

Welcome to week 3 of the Winter Shape Up! (Looking for the home base Winter Shape Up page? Click here – it has the answers to any questions you might have about the challenge and links to all the weekly content, too!)

As you know, my friend Gina and I have partnered up to bring you this fun healthy living 4 week challenge to inspire you to kick off the year on the right foot in terms of fitness and nutrition. Gina is a personal trainer, so on her site, you’ll find the weekly workouts for the challenge, including videos. Here on mine, I’ll be sharing the weekly nutrition-focused content, which will feature quick and easy recipe ideas for your meals and snacks.

We’d love to hear how you guys are doing with this challenge! If you share updates or photos on social media, please include #WinterShapeUp and, if you have space, tag both myself (@fANNEtasticfood – follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!) and Gina (@fitnessista) so we can see! :) You are also welcome to snag this graphic to put in your posts or on your blog sidebar, if you want!

Before I get into the plan, please remember that everyone’s nutrition needs are different and will vary based on activity level, age, gender, height/weight, and more. I am a Registered Dietitian, but this meal plan is not meant to be a substitute for personalized nutrition plans or nutrition counseling (like I provide in my AnneTheRD private practice). Above all, use this as a guide, not a concrete plan, and change it as you see fit based on your own hunger levels, preferences, and dietary needs. I’m not including specific quantities/portion sizes because of this – try to eat intuitively and listen to your body. This guide may be too much food for some of you and too little for others. If you’re getting full, save the rest for later. If the meal or snack wasn’t enough, don’t second guess yourself – listen to your body and have something else. If you’re really hungry and try to deny it, it will only lead to overdoing it later or feeling like crap. Honor your hunger, my friends. And same with the other end of the spectrum – stay mindful during your meals, and stop as soon as you start to get full. If you’re distracted, it’s a lot easier to overeat. Your body knows what to do if you just listen to it! Sound good?

A note on drinks: I didn’t include drinks in this guide, but aim to limit sugar-sweetened beverages. If you’re currently having a lot of sugar-sweetened beverages (soda, sweet tea, sweet flavored water, etc.), try to cut back by 1 or 2 drinks per week until it becomes an occasional treat vs. a daily habit. Focus on drinking lots of water, some unsweetened tea/coffee (if you’re into it), and the occasional wine or beer, if you like. :) Regarding dessert, I didn’t include it in the plan for simplicity’s sake, but indulgence in moderation is certainly part of a healthy relationship with food. The key is to view dessert as an occasional treat vs. letting it become an everyday habit. If you really want something, by all means allow yourself to have it and really savor it. There’s no point in feeling guilty – eating perfectly 100% of the time isn’t realistic or healthy. Just make sure that when you do indulge, it’s worth it. Choose the real thing, not a diet imitation; stay mindful and stop when you are satisfied. And lastly: for snack ideas – see the end of this page!

WEEK 3

Monday, Feb 10 – Sunday, Feb 16

First things first – here are the grocery shopping lists:

Week 3 Standard Shopping List
Week 3 Gluten Free Shopping List
Week 3 Vegan Shopping List

The snack list PDF can be found at the bottom of this post. (It’s the same as last week, but I’ve included some new make-ahead snack recipe suggestion links.) Everyone go say a big thank you to my dietetic intern Jackie for putting the grocery lists together for us!

Day 1

Breakfast:

Smoothie time! Blend 1 small very ripe banana, 2 tablespoons nut butter, 1 cup milk (or dairy alternative), a big handful of baby spinach, and a few ice cubes. For extra protein, you can add 1/2 C plain Greek yogurt to the mix, or a protein powder scoop (especially if you’re using non-dairy milk, since it will be lower in protein).

Lunch:

Healthier Chicken Salad sandwich or wrap. Sides as desired!

  • Gluten free option: use gf bread or gf wrap, or serve atop salad or quinoa.
  • Vegan option: use tofu instead of chicken.

Dinner:

BBQ Chickpeas with Sweet Potatoes & Bok Choy (vegan & gf)

Day 2

Breakfast:

Microwave Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie for One (vegan & gf if you use gf certified oats). Goes nicely with a latte. :)

Lunch:

Deconstructed Quinoa Burrito (vegan & gf)

Dinner:

Salmon cakes (gluten free)

  • Vegan option: use white beans instead of the salmon.
  • Enjoy cakes with a side salad or your favorite veggie recipe from last week!

Day 3

Breakfast:

Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal 

  • Gluten free option: use gf certified oats
  • Vegan option: use a dairy-free alternative (soy, almond, coconut milk, etc.)
  • Add toppings as desired (be sure to incorporate some healthy fat like ground flaxseed, chia seeds, nuts, or other seeds!)

Lunch:

  • Meal out on the town! Enjoy, and remember to eat intuitively and stop when you are feeling full. :)
  • Tip: pick something with a good mix of fiber (whole grains or fruit) + healthy fat (things like avocado, seeds, nuts, etc.) + protein (meat, beans, etc.).

Dinner:

Lentil & Brown Rice Herbed Salad (vegan & gf)

Day 4

Breakfast:

Breakfast burrito! Tortilla/wrap filled with two cooked whole eggs, 1/4 cup of black beans, a few slices avocado, tomato, wilted baby spinach, and pico de gallo, plus some salt/pepper to taste.

  • Gluten free option: use a gf certified corn tortilla.
  • Vegan option: use scrambled tofu instead of eggs, or nix that and just add extra black beans and avocado.
  • Quick tip: cook the eggs and wilt the spinach in the microwave! For the eggs, in a microwave safe bowl that has been sprayed with cooking spray/oil, whisk 2 eggs. Microwave on high 2 minutes. The eggs should be fully cooked! For the spinach, simply place a huge handful of raw fresh baby spinach on a plate and pop it in the microwave on high for about a minute, or until wilted. 

Lunch:

Leftover Lentil & Brown Rice Herbed Salad. Sides as desired.

Dinner:

Chicken & White Bean Chili Soup (gluten free)

  • Vegan option: omit chicken and use veggie instead of chicken broth. There’s still enough protein from the beans!

Day 5

Breakfast:

Flour-Free Protein Pancake (gluten free)

Lunch:

Leftover Chicken & White Bean Chili Soup. Freeze the rest for later portioned out into freezer safe ziplock bags!

Dinner:

Meal out on the town! Enjoy, and remember to eat intuitively and stop when you are feeling full. :) Not in the mood to go out? Repeat your favorite of the previous dinners.

Day 6 (Weekend!)

Note: for weekend days, I’ve just included brunch and dinner since I know many people tend to eat a late, larger breakfast and then just have some snacks between then and dinnertime. If you’re not a fan of this approach, feel free to repeat your favorite of the breakfast/lunch ideas above instead!

Brunch:

Almond Butter French Toast with Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Topping

  • Gluten free option: use gf bread.
  • Vegan option: try my Almond Butter Stuffed Vanilla Coconut French Toast instead, and use a flax egg instead of a regular egg. To make a flax egg, add 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed to a bowl, then stir in 3 Tbsp. water and refrigerate 15 minutes. It should now have a nice gel consistency!

Dinner:

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms (gf). If you want, you can feel free to add a side of meat, but this meal is delicious as is.

  • Vegan option: omit cheese.

Day 7 (Weekend!)

Brunch:

Meal out on the town! Enjoy, and remember to eat intuitively and stop when you are feeling full. :) Not in the mood to go out? Repeat your favorite of the previous breakfast ideas.

Dinner:

Thai Chili Garlic Chicken with Veggies and Brown Rice (gluten free – double check the fish sauce, though)

  • Vegan option: use firm tofu instead of chicken, soy sauce in place of fish sauce, and agave (or even brown sugar) in place of the honey.

Daily Snack Ideas for the Week

Choose these based on hunger levels. Some days you might need a snack or even two, while other days you might not need one at all. Focus on how you feel. Hunger levels change daily based on activity and a host of other factors, so don’t expect to feel the same every day. For snacks, just like meals, focus on a good mix of carbs, protein, and healthy fat to keep you satisfied.

Here’s the downloadable PDF with some easy snack ideas/things to pick up at the grocery store (these are not necessarily included in the overall grocery list in most cases): Winter Shape Up Snack Ideas.

Sponsors: White Plum | Sabra | Reebok | Cabot | Sizzlefish | Stonyfield | FitFluential

This week’s featured sponsor is Stonyfield! I’m so excited to have them as a sponsor because they are one of my favorite companies – not only do they make a delicious product (have you tried Stonyfield Greek yogurt yet?), but they are also very passionate about the environment and keeping their products organic, made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs. I had the pleasure of taking a trip with Stonyfield a few years ago to see firsthand more about what being organic means, and you can read more about it in this post: Organic Farming Question & Answer. I never used to buy organic anything until that trip; now I always buy organic milk and eggs, and try to buy organic veggies/fruit (especially those on the Dirty Dozen list) and meat when it makes sense/is available.

  1. 1

    I LOVE STONEYFIELD! i cant wait for this week :D

  2. 2

    wow! these meals look great, i will check out some recipes, thanks! :)

  3. 3

    looks so awesome! thank you! :)

  4. 4

    My last week’s eats were a bit random, though mostly on par with the shape up meals…however, I definitely would have liked to do better (too many late night bowls of cereal and midday chocolate squares!). Looking forward to really hunkering down this week with some of these great recipes and meal ideas. Thanks Anne!

  5. 5

    Things are going great. I’m staying on track with workouts and healthy eating.

  6. 6

    Just finished working out and I am ready for breakfast. I’m thinking it will be the microwave banana oatmeal that everyone is raving about.

  7. 7

    Tried some oatmeal this morning, just have a texture issue with it

  8. 8

    I had a breakfast sandwich this morning. I’m doing my own salad creation for lunch but am returning to the quinoa salad for dinner!

  9. 9

    I prepped the Autumn Chicken Salad last night for a quick and easy lunch today. I’m excited to try it! Also enjoyed a chocolate protein smoothie after a super sweaty hot yoga sesh yesterday!

  10. 10

    I finally made some Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal this morning. I LOVE it! It was quick, easy, and portable. I made it at home, put it in a gladware container and brought it to work with me to eat at my desk. For lunch it’s leftover Mexican Lasagna–it was a hit with the hubs last night so he’s having leftovers for lunch today, too! Thanks, Anne!

  11. 12

    I’m excited for week 3!

  12. 13

    I was craving something fresh this morning, so I opted for a fruit and protein smoothie. I’m really looking forward to trying tonight’s dinner after yoga!

  13. 14

    Bring on week 3!

  14. 15

    Typical week day banana oats for breakfast. Switching up the chicken salad today for sardine salad. Yum! Out to dinner tonight for my dad’s birthday :) Week 3 meal plan looks great!

  15. 16

    Great day for banana oatmeal with blueberries, walnuts, and ground flax. And coffee of course. No longer sweetened, splash of milk only. That is perhaps the best change I’ve made, in terms of food choices, this shape up. Who knew I wouldn’t miss the hydrogenated oil in my sweetened creamer! Ugh.

  16. 18

    Loved my smoothie with greek yogurt this morning!

  17. 19

    Started off the week right with banana oats. It’s going to be a tough week to avoid all the chocolate, though!

  18. 20

    Smoothie breakfast, kale salad lunch & turkey meatloaf dinner

  19. 21

    Doing great! Love the meal options

  20. 22

    I love yogurt and would love to win this week!
    Today, I had a major fail in my meal planning, so lunch out it was…

  21. 23
    Paige Callahan says:

    Had the banana oatmeal for breakfast, snacked on carrots and hummus, lunch was eggs with avocado and asparagus and sweet potato wedges, dinner is going to be in class so I’m picking up some sushi

  22. 24

    The banana oatmeal is my favorite so far! Love experimenting with different flavours and add ins, this morning included a big spoonful of peanut butter!!!

  23. 25

    Yummy egg white and laughing cow cheese spread on a GF Food should taste good wrap for breakfast and Baked swai with a side salad for lunch.

  24. 26

    Love all these chickpea options! Definitely adding barbecue sauce to my already planned chickpea dinner tonight.

  25. 27
    Kristin Ravel says:

    I had the smoothie for breakfast, a delicious chicken salad wrap for lunch (with Tortilla chips and salsa as a snack). Tonight I’m excited to make the BBQ Chickpeas! Last week I fell off the recipe list because of a delayed grocery visit, but I’m on track again now!

  26. 28
    Christina C says:

    Can’t wait to try these, especially the Thai chicken!

  27. 29

    Husband made the Thai chicken dish tonight. Happy he’s on board with my clean eats!

  28. 30

    I tried the breakfast burrito today. It didn’t even need cheese to be yummy!

  29. 31

    I confess. I’ve fallen partially off the bandwagon with the food. It’s always my greatest weakness. I can do fine for breakfast and lunch, but dinners… I’ve had tacos 3 nights in a row. Seriously. Cooking for 1 sucks. I need to find a solution that doesn’t waste food.

  30. 33

    today was a stressful day, including eating dinner while working :/ buuuut i did have some greek yogurt goodness with my snack ;)

  31. 34

    Getting ready to get my run in. 5 Miles this morning.

  32. 35

    I’m eating a yogurt bowl for breakfast as I read this post! I’d love to try some Stonyfield yogurt next time :)

  33. 36

    My pumpkin cookie didn’t really come out like a cookie :-(. Still delicious, though!

  34. 37

    The pumpkin oatmeal is delish! I left out the dried fruit and topped it with greek yogurt and stevia.

  35. 38

    So I made the pumpkin cookie this morning, BUT I forgot the oatmeal! It was still really good —- almost like warm pumpkin pie filling without the crust. :) Tomorrow, I’m going to try to make it the right way!

  36. 39
    Allison Galassie says:

    I just have a huge texture problem with oatmeal

  37. 40

    love the plan this week!

  38. 41

    Huge fan of the healthier chicken salad. I didn’t like the idea of grapes but I would like to try broccoli slaw the next time I make it….

  39. 43

    made the pumpkin oatmeal cookie this morning. I think I would rather have regular oatmeal but the cookie was a nice change up!

  40. 44

    Can’t get over how filling the oatmeal is. I’m so glad I’m avoiding added sugar. Who knew the banana would be enough to sweeten?

  41. 46

    Oatmeal with diced apple and cinnamon for breakfast. Nice change from my typical banana oats!

  42. 47

    Had a new flavor of Greek yogurt- raspberry lime with muesli, blueberries and some trail mix and coffee for breakfast. Lunch is the BBQ chickpeas and sweet potato with broccolini. Dinner I’m going out with friends to a fancy hot dog place called Dat Dog but I stick to the veggie dog with hummus tomatoes and onions on top (there’s like 20 different toppings to choose from!)

  43. 49

    Had the flourless pancake for breakfast today!
    I made the minestrone soup and the chicken and white bean chili last night so I plan to have one of them for lunch and another for dinner (school night tonight)!

  44. 50

    The healthified chicken salad was a hit! I have to admit I was skeptical subbing greek yogurt for mayo but it was fantastic. Thanks for a great recipe! I can’t wait to try out the flourless pancake later this week.

  45. 52

    Banana microwave oatmeal = my new go to breakfast option. I constantly have bananas on the brink of death in my house and this is a great use for them.

  46. 53

    The pumpkin oatmeal cookie was a fun breakfast!

  47. 54

    Okay — microwave pumpkin cookie for one has changed my life. Usually I try not to have pumpkin outside of the autumn months, but I’m breaking my rule for this! So delicious!

  48. 56

    Finally tried the microwave banana oatmeal for breakfast. I’m excited to play around with flavor combos.

  49. 57

    I love love love the BBQ chickpeas and bok choy. i used hot sauce instead of bbq sauce and i cant get enough!!

  50. 58

    Quick protein packed smoothie this morning… 33 grams! Kept me full for 5 hours!

  51. 59

    banana oatmeal, white bean chili

  52. 60

    Monday and today sick days :(

  53. 62

    Need to go out and buy salmon for the salmon cakes!

  54. 63

    YUM!! I am particularly excited about the pumpkin oat “cookie!”

  55. 64
    Christina C says:

    Those salmon cakes sound so good!

  56. 65

    I used made some meals from last week’s plan that I didn’t get to last week due to having huge amounts of minestrone leftovers to get through. Chocolate espresso smoothie, tuna salad on a pita, and mexi sweet potato. Yums!

  57. 66

    I did a chia pudding this morning for breakfast and a wrap for lunch!

  58. 67

    Made a version of the stuffed sweet potato tonight…so easy, so delicious!

  59. 68

    made me some black bean burgers tonight!!! mmmmhm :)

  60. 69

    had some sweet potatoes tonight! not stuffed, i like em plain :)

  61. 70

    Getting ready for my pumpkin smoothie!

  62. 71

    Going to have some peanut butter toast with a banana for breakfast! A delicious and classic combo :)

  63. 72

    I’ll be having a big smoothie for breakfast!

  64. 73

    Still sick… right now I’m living off coffee and water… maybe some soup later today (Wednesday).

  65. 74

    Forgot to check in yesterday, but it was my rest day so that makes sense!

  66. 75

    Did workout 3 today and followed up with a banana, blueberry, and almond butter smoothie.

  67. 76

    i’ve had to switch up my plan this week a little due to a need to use up groceries i already had, but ive still been using WSU ideas. yesterday was breakfast burrito and deconstructed quinoa burrito/mexican quinoa, and today is mexican sweet potato for lunch! :)

  68. 77

    I made some chickpea curry for dinner last night!

  69. 78

    I made the almond encrusted fish subbing in tofu to make it vegetarian for dinner last night. I loved it, the salsa was perfect with it. 5-stars!

  70. 79

    Great breakfast cookie recipe! Mine fell apart but I covered it in greek yogurt and chia seeds.

  71. 80

    Banana oatmeal for breakfast, a green smoothie for lunch and Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes for supper today!

  72. 81
    Amber Schumann says:

    Morning started off right with a spinach and berry smoothie!! I added some coconut oil and it gave it a nice boost of sweetness. Num num!

  73. 82

    I made my banana oatmeal with lots of chia and hemp!

  74. 83

    I love stoneyfield. Just shared some with my one-year old this morning. :-)

  75. 84

    Didn’t feel like oatmeal today so I had a chopped up banana with natural chunky peanut butter. Delish.

  76. 85

    Breakfast this am was scrambled eggs and an apple, I am allergic to bananas so I am finding it hard to make smoothies. My lunch was an asparagus, presciutto salad with an apple and a clementine, supper will be turkey meatloaf and a sweet potato!

    • 86

      You don’t need bananas for smoothies! Any frozen or fresh fruit is tasty in a smoothie. Try berries instead, or frozen tart cherries, or even frozen mango!

      • 87

        Thank you so much for your response! So some almond milk, spinach, and some frozen fruit? Is there anything else you would add?

  77. 88

    Very much enjoyed the mexi sweet potato fries! I’ve been eating sweet potatoes a couple of times a week now. I am hooked especially since they are dirt cheap at our grocery stores in Wisconsin. What exactly makes a sweet potato better than a russett potato? Low glycemic index rating?

  78. 92

    I’ve fallen a bit off the wagon this week with eating and I’ve been resorting to Lean Cuisine quite a bit for lunch. It’s just been one of those weeks!!

  79. 93

    I loved that lentil salad! Ate it with a side of roasted red potatoes! Mostly because they needed to be used up and the hubs loves them!

  80. 94

    Breakfast was oatmeal again. I used the Love Grown super oats today and added diced apples and cinnamon. Yum! For lunch I made this tilapia recipe: http://www.budgetbytes.com/2014/02/baked-tilapia-tomatoes/ and had a sweet potato with cinnamon and coconut butter on the side. Dinner will be in the Denver airport… hoping to find a salad :)

  81. 95

    Hola! Have a lovely Cuban style surf and turf planned for the evening!

  82. 96

    banana oatmeal, chicken arugula on Flat bread , turkey burger sweet potato.

  83. 97

    Plain Greek yogurt with rice chex mini chocolate chips and sliced almonds, grapes and some cashews. A spinach salad with black and garbanzo beans and hard boiled eggs. Some sweet potato and cinnamon crackers with peanut butter. A sweet potato pancake and a salad with shrimp tomatoes and avocado

  84. 98
    Christina C says:

    Banana oats this morning!

  85. 99

    This week….well, I generally do alright for breakfast. I had banana oatmeal with protein powder added this morning. And a shredded chicken salad for lunch with veggies added. Dinners, though. Bah. I finally ended my 4-day taco streak, and I was going to make the squash stew, but I got started to late, quit, and just had eggs and toast for dinner instead.

  86. 100

    Breakfast burrito in a pita, last week’s tuna salad, and a burrito bowl today!

  87. 101

    Today’s lunch will be a grain salad!

  88. 102

    Starting off the morning with whole wheat pancakes, banana, peanut butter, blueberries and honey. Yum!

  89. 103

    Another sick day… Thursday.

  90. 104
    Sarah O'Boyle says:

    I’ve been starting my days with either a banana spinach smoothie or banana oatmeal, followed by a workout at the gym. Happy healthy life.

  91. 105

    I totally forgot to buy eggs yesterday, so this morning I enjoyed pumpkin pie oatmeal again! You’ve really got me back on the oat train, Anne – and I’m loving it! Have a great day :)

  92. 106

    Oatmeal for me and the hubs this AM since we are iced in our house…maybe brats cooked over the fire tonight for dinner?

  93. 107

    I had a little deconstructed Anne’s no bake granola bar for breakfast this morning. When I made the bars the other night I must have been half asleep. I clearly didn’t put enough liquid ingredients in so while delicious, the mix never really hardened so I could cut them. I ended up crumbling up the whole batch and this morning threw some in a bowl with half a banana, some frozen organic blueberries, cinnamon, and vanilla almond milk. YUM!!! It reminded me of Gina’s breakfast cookie dough cereal, aka heaven on earth. Perfect post-Insanity fuel! :)

  94. 108

    What a great start to the day!! Workout 2 started at 5:40am followed by scrambled eggs, rice cakes with a little almond butter and an apple! And of course a nice warm cup of coffee!

  95. 109

    The salmon cakes were wonderful last night. Time for my breakfast burrito, then clean the house, then do workout 3 :)

  96. 110

    Tried eating slowly for dinner and found it so much more enjoyable

  97. 111

    Had lentils last night. Not sure what I’m having tonight. Maybe lentils. Maybe I’ll switch it up.

  98. 112

    I love breakfast burritos!!! So glad I picked up an avocado yesterday :)

  99. 113

    Super hungry today.

  100. 114

    Almond butter + banana on toast and eggs for breakfast.

  101. 115

    Adding flax to my protein shakes for some healthy additions. Hoping to incorporate more healthy foods into my diet!

  102. 116

    I am still munching on the carrot cake muffins I made last week…..such a heavenly treat!

  103. 117

    Blueberry waffle for breakfast this morning. Visiting family this weekend so checking out a restaurant downtown for dinner. Excited!

  104. 118

    Awesome breakfast this morning… egg whites in a GF wrap :)

  105. 119

    Eating is going great, Workouts are going great!

  106. 120

    White chicken chili for lunch and making the chicken artichoke meal from last week tonight.

  107. 121

    Haven’t been following the plan exactly because I have so many leftovers from last week, but I am enjoying them!

  108. 122

    Breakfast today was the flour free pancake with sliced banana and peanut butter and mini chocolate chips, snacks were sweet potato and cinnamon crackers and trail mix, lunch was a brown rice bowl with tofu and veggies, dinner is a salad from baja fresh with lettuce, black beans, grilled veggies and onions, salsa and grilled shrimp and guacamole

    Amber Schumann says:

    Tried to keep it healthy today, but prepping vday goodies calls for quality control ;)

  113. 127

    Made the chili yesterday for the snow day!!! AND I made Valentine’s Day cookies. What is it about snow days that leave me craving comfort foods????

  114. 128

    I’ll be having breakfast for dinner tonight, and I plan to have a healthy salad for lunch!

  115. 129

    Avocado toast for breakfast. I like to sprinkle it with red pepper flakes. So good.

  116. 130
    Allison Galassie says:

  122. 136

    I love protein pancakes!!

  123. 137

    I had a regular dinner last night: Stuffed Mushrooms and Roasted Broccoli. But today my appetite has vanished again. Still fighting the sick bug. :(

  124. 140

    Eating is going great this week. Lots of healthy foods.

  125. 141

    Having a larger than normal Valentine’s dinner at home tonight. Trying a healthy Banana’s foster recipe for dessert. Hopefully it turns out!

  126. 142

    I made the tomato artichoke artichoke chicken, but replaced the chicken with tilapia filets. It was wonderful. Now if only I can stay out of these girl scout cookies I ordered.

  127. 144

    Going to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my sister by making chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting! Classic yumminess :)
