So we did both…. mountain biking and the grocery store.  Smith’s grocery store was hopping…. I guess it’s the place to be on a Friday night…. that’s Provo, Utah for ya.  Billy is so stinking good at mountain biking and goes way fast, I on the other hand freak out on steep hills and jump off my bike and run it down the cliff (okay hill) before Billy turns around and realizes he married a wuss.

photo-4.jpgThe first helmet that actually fits my head.  Seriously its huge.  Also my running shoes are a size ten.  Billy and I share rock climbing shoes.  That’s weird.

At the grocery store, Billy scored 10 for $10 pasta in a box thingee’s, he is pretty excited.  His goal is to spend less than a dollar per meal. That means I can spend a ridiculous amount of money on produce and candy right??  Earlier today I threw in two chicken breasts, potatoes and taco seasoning into the crock pot. Why do they call them that? Anyways, when we got home I finished making the soup.  In the mix……

– Chicken, potatoes, taco seasoning, chili powder, chicken broth, carrots, zucchini, cabbage, butter beans (have you tried these. Do), corn and tomatoes.  Random but it turned out so good.  We also made some corn bread to go get in my usual daily copious amounts of carbs.


Definitely went back for seconds.

Time for the couch and Glee.  It is date night after all.  Every week I officially declare one night to be date night.  This is when we do the same thing we do every other night but I call it date night to fulfill my crazy estrogen need to be cheesy.  Oh, and somehow I keep digging into my bag of Ghiradelli chocolate chips.  I bought them to make cookies but they will never make it that far.

Do you have any good soup recipes for me??? Tis’ the season for hot soup!

That soup was so good!


Actually, I DO have a good soup recipe! It's a mexican chicken soup! It has chicken, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, avocado, rice, corn, tons of CILANTRO, cumin, lime and a chicken broth base. It's really good and pretty easy (especially since I use canned goods—Mother of 2 with a full time stressful job, I cut corners where I can). Love your blog, by the way! Been reading through a few posts…Fabulous!


That soup looks yummy! My fav is my moms chicken soup…just boil a whole chicken, then take out and get the meat off the bone…return meat to pot, then make dumplings out of flour and water (my mom is Korean and apparently they measure NOTHING so I cant even tell you how much to use of each, just enough to make it really doughy and sticky), then drop the dumplings in and cook for 4-5minutes. SO yummy


Oh I just implemented a requirement for a once a week date night too! Staying in is a good idea.


I just added this blog to my rss reader, excellent stuff. Can not get enough!
