Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat

by Meghann on September 14, 2011

Whoa! Who knew separate bathrooms was a common thing with relationships? Good to know Derek and I aren’t alone out there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Check out what I discovered at Publix this afternoon.

Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat!! Did you know this existed? I didn’t!

I tried one with dinner tonight.

It had a sweet, wheat-y flavory and the pumpkin flavor was very subtle with the slightest hint of cinnamon and cinnamon, but – honestly? – it was a little weak. The flavor could have been a little deeper and richer. Also, I still had the urge to add an orange to it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t know where it came from, but I had the strangest urge to have chicken and apple for dinner. I wasn’t quite sure how to execute those two elements together, so I turned to google for inspiration. I found this recipe for Chicken and Apple Skillet and got to work.

I stuck to the recipe as is and wasn’t impressed with it. Granted I could have sliced the apples thinner, let the sauce thicken up more, etc, but there was something else missing. Maybe cinnamon? cheese? cream?

I was more impressed with the mashed sweet potatoes

and steam-in-a-bag brussels sprouts (sort of obsessed with how easy and tasty these are)

At least Derek was impressed. I heard him scraping the bowls clean when he went back for seconds. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We broke out the chocolate chip mint ice cream for desert.

I stumbled upon a happy surprise on tv tonight:

America’s Next Top Model All Stars

(source)

All the girls I love to hate are back!

Confession: I’ve watched every single season of America’s Next Top Model. It’s my favorite trashy tv guilty pleasure that I look forward to every season. It’s mindless entertaining that doesn’t get old. Love it!

Who are you rooting for in the All Stars? I was always a big fan of Allison (LOVE her big beautiful eyes), but she doesn’t seem to have the same drive as she had in the past. Sad.

Move & Mix Update

September 14, 2011

Today I was feeling a ‘Meghann Creation’ for lunch. It started innocently enough with a zucchini, yellow squash, and red onion that I sauteed with some Garlic Gold (HLS swag), cumin, salt and pepper. Then it got interesting when I decided to add two eggs to the mix. That’s when it got ugly – tasty more ยป

Keeping it Easy

September 14, 2011

Maddie says ‘Good Morning!’ Actually, I think she’s saying “Squirrel?!” but she just looks so cute dong it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I made an executive decision this week – no more strength training until the half ironman is over. Also, last night was my last speed session. My legs feel shot right now and I want them more ยป
