Hi guys! I hope your weeks have been great.
Here are some things I’m loving lately – feel free to play along in the comments!
1) Leftover make-ahead breakfast burrito filling!
I had a bunch of roasted veggies (zucchini, onion, and pepper), black beans, and sweet potato leftover from making the burritos last weekend and I’ve been enjoying it as a hash of sorts with fried eggs on top. Yum!
Riese has been snacking on it, too. But before you get all “OMG her baby is such an adventurous eater why does my baby only eat bread?” – don’t worry, she only ate a few bites of this before trying to feed the rest to the dog.
If it isn’t bread/carbs, nut butter, dairy, or fruit, she can’t usually be bothered. 😉
She especially hates beans which is a bummer because they are such easy protein. Oh well – I’ll keep offering!
2) This gorgeous warm front.
We had weather in the 60’s a few days this week and it was so wonderful.
What a treat to get to take my little love (and the dog, of course!) out on a bunch of walks! Warmer weather and sunshine does wonders for my mood (and for Riese’s, too).
3) My workout buddies!
Yep, the three workout musketeers are still at it!
We continue to meet up at least once a week, every week, for an early morning workout date. Crazy we have been at it for years now – I think we first started meeting up back in 2013?! Whoa.
I don’t take many photos of our adventures anymore because we often go to the same places, but seeing them is always one of the highlights of my week.
4) Riese’s mullet game.
It’s so good, you guys.
The front is still short but the back is growing like weeds. So random.
Oh and yes, apparently there’s a hole in her shirt.
5) Getting in bed at 9 p.m.
I’ve been doing this most nights the past few weeks and it’s so lovely – especially since I’m usually getting up early to work out.
Getting in bed at 9 means I have time to read for awhile before still going to bed on the early side, which is perfect.
I’ve been finishing up Simplicity Parenting this week – really good read. Highly recommend to my parent readers!
We’ve been having salmon once a week lately and I love it.
Last night, we had my old fave Salmon with Lemon Mustard Dill Sauce. Try it if you haven’t yet!
That sauce – obsessed. I could eat it with a spoon!
We have enough leftovers for today, too – hizzah!
p.s. Have you guys tried making brown rice in the Instant Pot?
I did last night and it was so much faster than making brown rice on the stove… 15 minutes vs. 40-45! I put in 1 cup of brown rice with 1.25 cups water and cooked for 15 minutes on high pressure. Came out great!
And that’s all I have for you today!
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday. 🙂
