{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.

{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?

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?

{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!

{chip-less chili cheese nachos}

Say that 5 times fast! Actually, I just said it out loud 5 times and it really wasn’t that hard.

Okay, I’m going to keep it short and sweet today. Cause mama’s got shit to do.

Every. Single. Time I’m trying to watch what I’m eating. Bay comes up with something she’s dying to try. The latest:

Wienerschnitzel chili cheese fries. Yes…like the worst thing on the planet. Ha. But kinda the best thing too.

Fun fact: I got kicked out of Faith Formation (aka CCD) for ditching to go to Wienerschnitzel. And I 100% got chili cheese fires. I mean, what else do you even order from there? Anyway, we thought we were being really sly. To make a long story short, we got caught. I think I was about the same age as Bay is now. I’ve already threatened her she’d loose Snap Chat if she ever tried to ditch CCD…lol. Trust me, she won’t even chance it. She lives for snap!

Anyway, we were driving home the other night and Bay mentioned that she saw a commercial for chili cheese fries and NEVER KNEW THEY HAD THEM AT WIENERSCHNITZEL.

All caps because I almost fell outta my seat. Say what? I kinda feel like a failed her. Everyone should experience chili cheese fries.

So, I took her to Wienerschnitzel and got her an order. Did you know you can now order them like 10 different ways? Shit has changed since 25 years ago when I was frequenting the establishment. Bay got her chili cheese fries fix.

I tucked my tail and went home. Raided the fridge and came up with my own damn chili cheese chip-less nachos. And let me tell you….

They did the trick.

Weight Watchers friendly AF too!

I made a the whole package of mini peppers and took them for lunch the next day.

{what I ate // weight watchers zero point day}

What I ate Wednesday. One full day of eating ZERO Weight Watchers Points. And I didn’t die…lol. Or starve for that matter. Planning is key, but it’s 100% doable. I’ve been promising this post for

Since my blog post: {weight watchers 1 week results} more than 15 of you clicked on my link and signed up for Weight Watchers. It makes my heart so, so happy! I know, for a fact, that when you follow this plan you will be 100% successful. I love all the DM’s and messages…so keep them coming. For example, I ran into my girlfriend Toni last weekend. She began her Weight Watchers journey back in January. Guess how much she’s lost in 4 months?

{egg roll bowls}

Happy Spring Break! We’re off to the beach for some vitamin Sea. Much needed sand between our toes + sunshine on our shoulders. The thought of not setting a 4:30 am alarm all damn week has be straight up giddy! Ha!

I did get some time last week to pre-blog some content. And this one was highly requested, so here ya go!

I have something to admit….

I didn’t make a real dinner in over 2 weeks. We’ve been so busy, that I just haven’t made the time. Nugget’s salad bar chicken has become a staple in my diet…lol. Bay’s been living on taquitos + corn dogs. And let me tell you, she hasn’t complained once. But, I feel so much better when I make a healthy dinner. And we sit around the table. Say our daily peeks + pits.

I missed it. So last week, I finally made time to cook. We had our first al fresco dinner.

The best part?

I made a zero weight watchers point meal. And we both LOVED it. Added rice to Bay’s because clearly she can use all the carbs.

It’s uber healthy. Uber easy. I’m talking like 10 minutes max. One pan.

Wham bam thank you ma’am!
