Take a look at the scoop

4 May

Good Evenin’!

Well it has been cleaning our the freezer week at the Maughan household. We kept our word and whipped a whole wheat pita/tortilla that we had in the freezer to make nothing other than Nachos. I read a funny joke the other day that made me giggle while I was eating: Why are you eating Nachos? Don’t worry, it’s nacho butt. lol

 

We first cut the pita and tortilla into triangles, drizzle a little olive oil and sea salt. Then put it in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 min. Then you have got yourself some homemade whole wheat tortilla/pita chips. I absolutely loved these chips! Trust me, make your own chips. They are so much better for you and taste amazing fresh out of the oven ūüôā

The toppings for our chips consisted of this Hormel Chili, queso, homemade guacamole, and salsa. I was so psyched when I found it in the store, because I have never found turkey chili in a can!

 The guac was so easy, we just pureed an avocado and added some diced tomatoes.(Just like Chipotle)

 It kind of looks like a trifle of nachos.

A salad was served on the side. Look at all of those sprouts, it looks like a mess ūüėõ

Once again another two thumbs up meal.

 

Well it is Hills and homework time, catch you all later!

28 Apr

Holey¬†Canoli! We went to bed super early last night, so that we could get our beauty¬†smart sleep for all that testing going on today. For a good healthy/fulfilling breakfast, we whipped up egg whites(egg whites, spinach, laughing cow, chickpeas, broccoli, hot sauce!), some strawberries, and Apple Cinnamon raisin toast. And, for a little perk, and oldie but a goodie, the last of the Pumpkin Spice Latte mix to make coffee. The test began at 7:15 AM, and then ended at 10:45! And oh my goodness the science section was so hard. ūüė¶

 When we got home around 11:15, lunch was a favorite repeat of last week. A green monster, and a Pumpkin PB banana Pita (but this time in a tortilla, and this one had a few chopped dates added).

Green Monsters are so refreshing with lunch ūüôā

¬†After lunch, we looked at today’s grocery Ad’s since it is Double Ad Wednesday. Sprouts and Albertson’s were having some good deals going on, so our mom gave us her card, and we got the grocery shopping done for the week. And the good thing is, no crazy weather happened like it usually does when were out grocery shopping. definitely odd.

For dinner tonight, using our New Hungry girl book, we made Shrimp and Grits. This recipe was adapted from Paula Deen, but then made 100 times healthier. And it was quite a success with this household of picky eaters. lol It was actually everyone’s first time trying grits, which is weird. And I thought they tasted like mashed potatoes, and kinda ricey¬†like. All in all we are grits lovers now‚ô• To go along with this meal, some veggies were steamed, a crescent¬†roll, and a sparkling Izze.

 Wow, who knew how good grits would be, and the laughing cow mixed in gives a lot of flava!

 Umm yeah, totally thumbs up meal!

 Cheers!
