I cannot believe
the my Orioles clinched the AL East last night and we weren’t there for it.
Top of the 9th, 2 outs. I stopped cooking dinner so I could watch the final out. As soon as the O’s got that out, Nathan and I popped the bubbly. Hey, they were doing it at the stadium so we needed to participate too, right?!
I also sent a text to my dad. He’s been my Orioles partner-in-crime my whole life and with all of the terrible games we’ve been to over the years, I was so freaking bummed to not be able to celebrate with him. We so would have been there [Nathan was cursing California the rest of the night because of it!] and quite possibly would have gone into work late today. Like we say though, you should always have a bottle of bubbly in the fridge.. you never know when you’ll need it! Also, don’t be jealous of our extra large champagne flutes 😉
Now back to the rest of the food.. which is actually from Monday. I’m still in the “eat all the food” mindset, possibly because I most likely need more sleep. Do you get super hungry when you’re lacking rest? I know I definitely do!
I’ve been really rationing my coconut vanilla latte bites. I don’t want them to end [even though I can always make more..] but sadly my stash is just about depleted. I’m thinking I’ll need to create a new bite recipe soon though!
Because clearly we can never get enough oatmeal and nut butters. And repping the Orioles every morning..
You know when it’s just about lunch time but you’re not hungry enough for lunch? Boom! Greek yogurt saves the day. And this stuff fo realz tastes like Pina Colada! That said, I’m not usually one for the flavored yogurts anymore, but darn their fun limited edition packaging.. gets me every time!
By the time I got home from work, I was ravenous! I’m surprised I actually made myself a full salad instead of just eating a head of lettuce with veggies on the side. Ha! I had just enough time to shove this beauty in my face before heading to another meeting.
Speaking of saving the day, that Costco rotisserie chicken was definitely the right plan for a day that I was running around. I just popped it in the oven, chopped my brussels, and with a tiny amount of effort, dinner was ready! I tossed the brussels with maple syrup, sriracha, and a little smoked paprika. They were pretty delicious but I have to admit, I’m definitely one for regular old EVOO + S&P brussels. Some ketchup made it’s way onto my plate too.. still going strong!
I recently got a jar of Peanut Butter & Co’s Old Fashioned Crunchy and I just. can’t. stop. It’s so good! This plate was topped off with a carrot cake energy bite. I like to sandwich my day’s eats with some bites 😉
