Well, Darby survived the vet! He was shaking the whole time but was a rockstar when it came to his shots! 😉
And it turns out, sunshine isn’t deceptive! Or at least not this afternoon! It got surprisingly warm around 3:00. I busted out the green puffy vest! This picture was from WAY back in college. My junior year I studied abroad in Galway, Ireland. My mom actually sent me the green puffy vest when I was over there!
Anyway, Christy was studying in Cork and I surprised her for her 21st birthday! 🙂
OHMYGOD! I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’RE HERE!!
YOU ARE SUCH A GREAT FRIEND! I LOVE YOU, SHORTY!
Rockin’ the green vest.
That was a very roundabout way of showing you a picture of one of my fav articles of clothing… 😉
Back to 2011…
Dinner was back to the basics. I kept things real simple. And dinner turned out wonderful!
But first, afternoon snack: Pretzels and hummus.
A few hours later…
I snacked on some grapes as I prepped dinner.
On the menu: Chicken + sweet potato!
I first rubbed the chicken with some spice and BBQ sauce.
I then set the broiler to high and broiled the first side for 8 minutes, flipped, and then broiled the next side for 10 minutes.
While the chicken was cooking, I steamed some spinach. Just added water and cooked on low for about 10 minutes!
Drizzled with some more BBQ sauce
After putting the spinach in the sweet potato, I sprinkled it with some sea salt.
YUM! Super basic but super delicious.
Also, this is the first night since I gave up sweet treats that I haven’t craved one after dinner! It’s been really hard not following up dinner with a sweet treat, but I’ve been strong! 🙂 Seriously, it feels so great not to be craving one right now!
Have a great night!
