{asian meatballs}

I need to come up with a new name for this recipe. It just sounds bad. Or is my mind in the gutter? Ha!

Friends – I tried a new air fryer recipe the other night. Annnddd, it was a hit! Bay and I both had it for dinner. Then lunch the next day. We loved it! I’m including oven direction with this recipe as well, since I’ve also made it back in the day before air fryers were a thing.

This recipe tastes so fresh + delicious. The best part – it’s healthy and totally Weight Watchers friendly. You guys, I’m back on the WW train. I’ve been tip toeing around the program for the last month and last week, I am BACK!

And right when I get back, the entire program changes. FML! Now you get 3 options. Say whhhattt? I’m currently using the old program, but I’m attending the Saturday meeting to get all the details. So I can decide which option works best for me. Stay tuned.

{thai turkey + carrots}

Happy Hump Day peeps! Tonight is our annual annual family pumpkin carving competition. Debating if I want to get tips…..or carve a pumpkin. Hummmm! Plus we’re celebrating my Dad’s birthday. I foresee lots of red wine. Mom’s Famous Chicken Tortilla Casserole (it’s a tradition) and laughing till we (almost) pee our pants. It’s just how we roll.

I haven’t shared a recipe in a bit, so I thought I better get one up today.

If you’re down with healthy + easy + flavorful + one pan meals….

Then I got you!

I made this Thai Turkey + Carrots dish last month. It was so good, I made it the other night. I was craving it. Then I realized I never shared the recipe with you guys.

Think turkey cooked in coconut milk + broth with and all the yummy spices. You get sweet + spicy + salty all in one.

This legit takes 15 minutes. It’s clean AF. Weight Watchers friendly. The only ingredients that have points value is the coconut milk and peanuts. Everything else is ZERO! I picked up all my ingredients at good ol Trader Joe’s. Except for the Franck hot sauce. Which you should already have in your fridge. Because that shit is bomb!

Targeting: verb; {tarh-git-ing} spending all the money on cute things you only kinda, sorta, really don’t need.

But has anyone ever made it out of Target with only what they went in for? Asking for a friend.

Christmas decor + pajamas + music are slowing making it’s way into our favorite store. Brace yourself. Ha! I won’t be sharing any Holiday items….just yet. Come Sunday – It’s ON!

{chicken ravioli bake}

Happy Hump day friends.

Very important question: What is the casserole that reminds you of your childhood? Good or bad. The casserole your mom made weekly. Because god knows, casseroles were all the rage!

Mine would have to be {Mom’s Famous Chicken Tortilla Casserole}

Sharing and old, like really, really old. Like 2005-ish old. So, basically this recipe is older than my kid? Crazy to think I’ve been making this longer than she’s been alive…lol!

{halloween snack mix}

Halloween is 23 days away. Bay just decided today that she wants to be a bumble bee. So now I frantically try to find her the perfect bumble bee costume….that she actually likes. Say a little prayer for me, K?

And you know by now that I’m a complete Holiday Whore…ha! Sounds so bad. lol. Any excuse to make something fun + festive. I’m here for it. Pumpkin shaped everything. Ghosts + spiders. I’m on it!

Some good ones from the archives:

  • Remember the {pumpkin donut holes} They are not only crazy easy, they’re crazy good!
  • The {mini pumpkin pies} I’ve been making for years. They are the perfect individual sized dessert for those of us (my hand is raised) that have absolutely NO control when it comes to pumpkin pie.
  • {pumpkin snickerdoodles} a spin on GG’s (my grandmother) classic cookie.
  • Back in 2016, I shared {pumpkin muffins} and I need to put these on my to-make list to re photograph them!
  • Last years I busted out the {spider cupcakes} for our annual trick-or-treating night at the Nelson’s
  • And last but not least, {pumpkin spice creamer} inspired by my girlfriend Justine!

This year, I’d like to introduce you to a dangerously delicious snack mix.

Good afternoon friends. We are on week 39 of 2019. Pretty wild, huh? That’s almost 39 weeks of Monday intentions. Some weeks they seem almost the same as the week prior. And some weeks they are loaded with fun + exciting things. Still fun to share either way.

We had a FUN weekend. Didn’t get much done on a productive level, but that’s okay. I’ll get caught up this week. We had fun with friends. Picked up some Harley & Bean gear. Watched Jenny get married. And hit the pumpkin patch. So, all in all – I can’t complain. Bay had her 3rd week of volleyball camp and it’s so cool to see her learning + growing.

Intentions for the Week:

  • lay off the booze for a hot one
  • make a Trader Joe’s Fall grocery list printable to share
  • hit my daily step goal
  • work on an Amazon round-up
  • finishing touches on our fall to-do’s
  • try some new air fryer recipes
  • wash all my reusable grocery bags
  • delete old photos from my phone
  • do something kind AF each day
  • decorate the front porch
  • share a new recipe on the blog

This week on xoxostacyb: New Target finds. Our Fall To-Do’s with all the things Fall. Can’t decide if I should share a salmon recipe or the WW turkey + carrot noodles. Hmmm! And hopefully get to my Amazon round-up!

Highlights for the week……..

{weekend notes}

Just another Magic Monday. Switching it up. Moday’s don’t have to be manic. Let’s make them magic. What do you think? After a full 7 hours of sleep last night (which I never, ever get) I did NOT wake up refreshed and ready for the day. But, instead of thinking about how shitty today could be. I’m turning it around and thinking of all the ways it can me magic. I know, sounds corny, but my mind + heart can make or break my day. So, this is working for me….so far!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

This past weekend was sprinkled with a healthy dose of family + friends + sunshine + relaxation. It was pretty damn good!

Intentions for the Week:

  • stay on track with Weight Watchers
  • watch my girls first volleyball game of the season
  • celebrate my Mom’s birthday
  • finish decorating for Fall
  • shoot some new outfits for the blog
  • purge all my Fall decor
  • make it to the gym, no matter what
  • actually start a mini reset…and not just talk about it
  • try a tortellini soup
  • plan a Napa day-date with Cory
  • watch Jenny get married
  • complement someone different everyday
