{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!

{taco rice skillet}

You guys, I am having a day. You know one of those days where nothing goes right? So, you just start laughing at all the things that go wrong.

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Clumsy AF! I’ve dropped everything I’ve touched. Which is the first sign that I’m about to have “a day”

I was 20 minutes late for work. Mainly because it’s fucking Western Day for spirit week. Does anyone else dread spirit week? Bay needed help prying the pig shit off the bottom of her boots she wanted to wear to school. I can only imagine the aroma coming off them as she sits in class.

Not to mention I’ve got a zit. And this aint any ol zit. This thing is between my eyes. Like a 3rd eye. When I’m talking to people, I can see them staring at it. HA! Swear. And I’m a total picker/popper kinda gal. But, I’ve vowed to not touch it. I think it’s even giving me a mild headache? Is that possible? There is not enough Tarte Shape Tape in the world for this bad boy!

I opened up my lunch and realized……I forgot a fork. And most days, that probably wouldn’t be the end of the world. But, I’ve been intermittent fasting. Meaning, at noon today, I hadn’t had anything other than water + coffee since 8:00 pm yesterday. So, 16 hours later you can only imagine not having a fork. HANGRY AF! I dug out a disposable fork. From the garbage (my personal garbage in my office). That I used yesterday. Washed it with hand soap and warm water (because that’s all I got). And enjoyed the hell out of those leftovers. Laughing the whole damn time.

Then, I went to buy a skeleton hand. At Walmart. And my card got declined. Because I’ve failed to balance my checkbook. So, I had to pull out my phone, transfer money. Then get back in line to make my purchase. Oh, yeah – It was a whoppin $3.08. Still laughing.

So, what’s next? We shall see! I cannot wait till bedtime!

But to be honest – how can you have a shit day on Taco Tuesday?

Smocked Ruffle Top (on sale) | Jeans ($45 off) | Clogs (50% off) | Straw Clutch ($21) | Headband ($15) | Necklace

HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it! Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. Loved reading all your messages. Totally made my day so much better. Had a great evening. Bay made dinner. We went on a walk. I didn’t sleep for shit. But, I got up early AF ready to kick off the weekend. Hit Nugget for their bacon..lol. Bay’s fave and I want to make homemade breakfast pizzas in the morning. And Raley’s to use all my Something Extra coupons. Ha! Bay and I had a coffee date at Scribblers Coffeehouse, our new fave place! All before 7:30 am. It’s gonna be a good day!

Weekend plans: Chill the f out. Sit by the pool. Hopefully get my peeps to take a hike with me. Do a little yard work. Meal prep. Have happy hour with GG. Catch a movie? I have a feeling The Art Of Racing In The Rain will make me cry my damn eyes out. And fingers crossed….make it to the new plant shop, Propagate Sac. What’s on your agenda for the Weekend?

Thing I’m loving this week…..

{panko crusted salmon}

You guys, we’ve got 2 frickin weeks till school starts. Holy shit. Is everyone ready?

I am! I’m ready for our regularly scheduled life back. Bay’s got all her school supplies. Backpack is locked and loaded. First day outfit is picked out. We’ve got our 1st day sign ready for a photo shoot (which we do the day before) #momhack

The first day is entirely too wild. Emotions are at an all time high. It’s fucking stressful. So last year we decided – first day pics the day before. And it worked like a charm! Try it! I’ll be sharing some cute free printables in the next week or so.

I feel like dinnertime + cooking in general (that first week or two) is also crazy stressful. Especially when we have those big ass packets of Mom homework. I dread them every year.

So, I’ll be sharing some easy weeknight dinners.

Which are also great for meal prep.

Healthy + Weight Watchers approved!!

We’re salmon lovers at our house. I love just about any fish or seafood. My teenager, not so much. But, she’s down with some salmon here and there. So, salmon it is. Ha! I typically bake it in the oven with lemon. Sometimes I’ll add a honey + Dijon mixture. Honestly, I keep it pretty basic. The other night I got a wild hair and wanted to try something new. And it was a HIT! I felt like a won a fucking award as Bay cleaned every last bit of food off her plate! Ha!

Here are some other Salmon recipes from the blog…..

{greek turkey burgers}

Recently we’ve become BIG burger fans at our house. Not that we weren’t down with them before. Honestly, I just didn’t really make burgers all that often. And when I did, I would grab the pre-made burgers from the meat department.

And let’s keep it real, they aren’t even close to as delicious as a handmade, homemade burger.

Maybe it’s summertime and I just wanna grill everything. Or air fry. The air fryer is another summer lifesaver. But, I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of different burger recipes. I love that you can enjoy them the traditional way. Ya know, with a bun and all the condiments. Lettuce wrapped, my personal favorite. Open-faced. Over a salad. Or, as of recent, in a crunch wrap. Here’s my basic crunch wrap recipe that can be used for any type of crunch wrap: {the crunch wrap}

{taco stuffed sweet potatoes}

Today I’m breaking my 2 week silence…ha! Hi friends. I know it’s been quiet around here. Took a much needed break. Sometimes you just have to shut it down and walk away for a bit. But, I’m back today and feeling excited to start sharing ALL THE THINGS with you again.

It’s been over a month, May 30th to be exact, since I’ve even shared anything food related. Not even sure how that happened. But today is TACO TUESDAY! Like, the best day of the week….other than Friday + Saturday. So, I thought it was the prefect time to share my taco stuffed sweet potatoes. I straight up lived off these for lunch for a whole week.

Seriously, they are so good. And so easy!

{the crunch wrap}

You know my love for Taco Bell is BIG! So big that I dream about it. Ha!

So it only makes since that I mastered the home made crunch wrap! And you’re going to die when you see how easy it really is to make.

And how versatile this recipe is. You see, I made a buffalo chicken crunch wrap. But, you can make this anyway your heart desires. The classic taco bell crunch wrap. A breakfast crunch wrap. You can make them uber healthy. Or you can make your mouth water with all the things….not so healthy. Your kids will even dig these. I’m tell you, you’ve got to give it a shot!

{salmon skewers}

Hi friends! Short weeks are a killer. They sounds all fine and dandy. Then you realize you have to cram 5 days of work and all the things into 4 days. Not that cool. But, today is Thursday and I’ve got a bottle on wine waiting for me at home. So, I’ve got that going for me!

Bay and I got to school early this morning to put up all her election posters. She’s running for Treasurer at her Middle School. I never had the balls to run for anything in school, so I’m crazy proud of her. We made 4 posters last night and they turned out so cute.

As of now, I believe she’s running against herself., so the odds are looking good. Real good! Ha!

Coming atcha today with a quick + easy dinner. Not only it is healthy AF….the best part – it’s pretty AF too. Ha! This recipe is a great one for a week night or when you have company over. It’s a crowd pleaser!

I’m currently counting macros and this recipe is VERY macro friendly! No matter what diet or not diet your on, this recipe is so good. It’s fresh and eating the colors of the rainbow always makes me feel extra healthy. Anyone else?

This recipe is versatile too. You can swap out any veggies you like. Or your fam-bams faves. It cooks up quick and the leftovers are bomb. You know when the meal is almost better the second day kinda bomb? Like spaghetti. So much better day #2.

Since it’s (un) officially summer, I’m excited to bust out all the grill and share all my fave recipes with you!
