The sister and I were put in charge of dinner last night. This means that loads of fresh veggies and chips were going to be incorporated.
Our number one choice is always to make Megan’s Cream Cheese Chicken Chili. Seriously, if you haven’t made it yet, do it now and if you like spicy foods add a bunch of Tapatio. We would also NEED to add two more carbs to the meal in the form of two different types of biscuits. PS my sis also adds a can of tomato sauce to the recipe just in case you want it a little more soup-like.
Just gotta throw in a picture of my favorite type of weather from yesterday…snow but at the same time really sunny and kind of warm.
I promise Billy isn’t giving you guys the evil eye, he is just embarrassed that I caught him cuddling with the life-size moose. Just in case you were wondering, my niece named this moose Angel.
My mom was in charge of dessert and she made brownies. Only problem is that the sis and I needed more sugar than just the amount in an average brownie. We started off by adding marshmallows and broiling them and figured that wasn’t enough and so then we had to make some homemade carmel sauce to top it all with.
I am telling you, hanging out with me and my sister is always a good time, we tend to go overboard with things.
Once we were done with the brownies we needed a little salt, enter in dipping pretzels into carmel.
Happy President’s Day! I will be going to a pump class at TEN-THIRTY in the morning! If I had work today that would mean I would already be in third period. I could get used to sleeping in, eating a nice breakfast and then going to work out:) Too bad I really love my job too.
Favorite veggie to eat RAW?!?!
What was the last dessert you had with carmel? Would you rather have hot fudge or carmel sauce?
What time are you working out today?
-I am sorry but I am just really excited about working out later on in the morning on a Monday.
Favorite thing to eat tortilla chips with?
chelsey @ clean eating chelsey
I’m working out later today too – hooray for being a teacher!

Happy day off Monday! My kids are off all week:-) I love red peppers, not so much green. And hot fudge all the way. I would go for gaucamole to dip chips in. so good. I slept in this morning…until 6:30 so no gym for me. Hopefully later in the day I will get it in! Have a great workout!
I love raw carrots! I’m going to work out in about 15 minutes – 3 miles & some weights ;) I do love caramel sauce but I haven’t had it in soo long! This should be fixed soon!
Jealous! My family all has today off but me :( I’ll be working out tonight. 5:30 crossfit WOD. I could eat a bag of baby carrots in one sitting, crunchy & sweet. Yum. I’m also a caramel girl. I think the last time I had it was on some frozen yogurt :) And I’ve never met a tortilla chip basket I didn’t like, especially if it is smothered in home made guacamole!
I’m right there with ya. I am the only one in my family working today too.
I love sugar snap peas and carrots. Post the recipe for homemade carmel sauce. My husband is addicted to that sort of thing. Salty and sweet is the way to go. We have spicy sweet carmel corn in our pantry right now and it is SO GOOD. I had a longer run yesterday, so I am looking at doing a class at the gym and maybe some incline walking to stretch everything out.
Josie @ happycorredora.com
Yum- those brownies look so good. Way to dress up a dessert!
I love carrots raw. Not a huge fan of mushy cooked ones.
I love caramel sauce. Best over Ben and Jerrys cookie dough icecream.
I am going on a recovery run. Not taking the garmin so I won’t look at pace.
Have a great day off! :)
I love to munch on carrots. I love you and your sisters creativity;-)
No workout for me today (besides stretching, maybe yoga)–I am still feeling a bit beat up from my long run this weekend–gotta be smart and take an extra rest day.

I’m not getting a workout today because I’m headed to Hawaii in a few hours– gotta catch my flight!!
I love all veggies raw– they just taste better that way!
I had a day off today too and slept in till 10 and then worked out…boy was it glorious!
Meant to add, caramel sauce on fro yo is incredible!
I have family envy when I read your entries.
I love fresh Pico with tortilla chips.
Kaitlyn @ Pain Can Be Fun
Just like you, I slept in, am going to eat breakfast, and workout whenever I feel like it! amazing. Enjoy your day off!! :)
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes
Kristen @ notsodomesticated
I think I’d get along very very well with you and your sister. ;) That brownie looks incredible!
Carrots are my fave! I am doing a slow three because I ran a half yesterday.
Fave raw veggie: celery
Last time I had caramel: I honestly cannot remember. How sad is that :(
Workout time today: 5 AM so it’s already done. Yeah, the gym was empty and it took me a few minutes to realize most people are off today.
Favorite thing to dip tortilla chips in?- Ever since you posted that cream cheese chicken chili recipe link- that is my favorite thing to dip tortilla chips in. I love the Tostios Artisan Black Bean with Roasted garlic kind! It’s on the menu for this week.
Enjoy your day off!
I made the cream cheese chicken chili this weekend. It was awesome. I’ll be eating the leftovers tonight. I worked out at 5:45 this morning. I’m crazy, I know, but I have an awesome group of friends and we all workout early before work. I’m very lucky!!
Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries
i WISH i had off today – ahhh your morning sounds glorious! :) and that brownie sundae looks divine!
Karla @ myhighonlife
Any peppers are delicious and my favorite raw veggie. And cucumbers!
Enjoy your day off work, Janae! I just did a crossfit workout and thought I was going to die after my 16 miler on Saturday. Have a short recovery run later otherwise I’m just taking it easy :)
sneakers 2 sandals
Enjoy presidents day!! I’m in school to be an elementary teacher so I can just imagine how excited I would be.
CARROTS! I eat way too many of them.
Sometime this afternoon.
The Kidless Kronicles
I don’t have school on Monday’s because I go part-time, so I take full advantage of having a leisurely morning. I will be working out at 10am!
kari @ Running Ricig
I think I’d rather eat almost any veggie raw than cooked.
I wish I had today off! Instead, I decided to make my day even worse and had a dentist appointment before work today. I really know how to go crazy.
I love green beans raw or jicama.
I already ran this morning.
I love guacamole for my chips, I think I know whats for lunch. :-)
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile
Carrots are by far my favorite veggie to eat raw. I eat tons!
I last had iced coffee with caramel. So good!!!
I’m working out in the afternoon/evening due to class.
Jenn@ Run It My Way
Aw I wish I had a day off!! I will be running or swimming after work, whichever I’m more in the mood for! THEN watching the new Twilight movie, which I finally bought but haven’t seen yet :)
Those brownies look amazing!!
Mini cucumbers! Not sure why but the mini ones taste WAY better to me!
I cannot remember the last time I had something with caramel…probably a Christmas dessert or chocolate. I like hot fudge more, reminds me of when I was younger and would go to McD’s and order a hot fudge sundae with fries to dip into the ice cream…
I am going to workout soon, about 8:30am, love it too :)
Guacamole, hands down.
Cat @Breakfast to Bed
That’s a toughie. Red bell pepper or jicama.
caramel. hands down. on everything. with salt.
I have pump tonight at 6ish, pretty stoked. I’m the instructor, so there WILL BE SHOW TUNES.
guacamole or queso that is so spicy it burns your lips.
Perks of being a teacher: although I think most people have off today…..caramel sauce all the way, best on ice cream and apples. Yum! We love chips with queso, we practically eat the whole jar in one sitting. As for working out, of course I will talk about that after food order of importance….I worked out this morning and then I’ll be doing some more fun stuff tonight. Enjoy your day off!
That brownie looks so good!!
I like raw carrots
And I love tortilla chips with guacamole!!! Yum!!!
I love that we have off today!! I’m going to go to the gym soon too! Late morning workout on a Monday!?! yesssss
Favorite raw veggie is baby carrots. Today is a rest day for me. I am feeling yesterdays race. Love carmel, last dessert are these awsome carmelitta bars from Whole Foods, oat crust, carmel, chocolate chunks and pecans, yum!
Does anyone have compression shorts/tights and what brand do you like? I’m planning on purchasing some for my birthday. Thanks
Wow. Finally, a bag of tortilla strips that might actually last more than 15 seconds in my presence.
I love raw peppers too and carrots. No caramel sauce for this girl and no working out today as it is my rest day!
OMG Billy has such good taste–True Religion jeans?! Good work!
I have today off, too–SO excited! I am doing my long run today because I had friends visiting all weekend!
This post is motivating me and getting me really excited to go to the gym today!!
I’m working out later in the day today too – I want to see if it affects my running at all – we’ll see! Enjoy your day off :)
I’m working out tonight after work. I’m really excited it’s a cross-train day, after my run yesterday I can barely walk!
I love that picture with the moose. precious!
Either a bike ride or a run today!! I love dipping tortillas into a good 7 layer dip. That way u get cheese,salsa and guacamole all in one! Mmmm…
Andrea @ Andrea Out Loud!
Fav raw veggie is tomato! yum! tho it is technically a “fruit” i consider it a veggie :) haha or raw spinach!
I will be working out at 630 tonight
fav thing with tortilla chips is salsa/greek yogurt (in place of sour cream) mix and/or CHEESE!
Fav. thing to eat chips with…pineapple salsa! I bought the same Costco bag of chips for the shower yesterday, and there is still about 2/3 left for me, myself, and I. AND I have today off…uh oh!
I love to eat cauliflower raw. The last dessert I had with caramel was a salted caramel cupcake and it was eveything I dreamed it would be. I prefer hot fudge, but that is because I am a huge chocolate lover! I’ll be working out this morning and tonight when the kids are down. I love eating guacomole or ranch with tortilla chips.
I have SO MANY comments about this post.
First: I love that Billy wears his wedding ring (my husband does too). I think it is so endearing when a man does that.
Second: I have been looking for a white chicken chili recipe. Thanks!! :)
I’m with Andrea above- love the tomato! Garden ripe is my absolute favorite!! I love veggies in all shapes and sizes though.
I’m not working out today. :( :( I am forcing myself into a week of rest in hopes for recovery from the Achilles injury.
Salsa with a side of chips is a food group for me.
Hot fudge. The end.
raw veggie? celery if it has pb on it. red or green bell pepper if by itself.
last caramel? a piece of chocolate with caramel in it.
working out? about to plot out a running loop in my new neighborhood…waiting another hour or two because I can and because it’s still only 40 out at 8am.
chips? guacamole. no question.
At work, and conferences tonight, so I am thinking no workout unless it is at 10pm. When I think I will be savoring a bowl of ice cream like it is drugs after this long Monday.
Carrots #1, but peppers is a close second.
Last thing with carmel was a fufu coffee drink from starbucks: salty carmel mocha.
Enjoy your day off, I am living vicariously through you.
The giatn Costco moose! We seriously debated for 15 minutes about whether or not we should buy it last weekend… and someone came out of the store WITHOUT it. I think I’m motivated to go back and just get it now!
Enjoy your day off work. I’m jealous and am currently sitting in boring meetings. I love broccoli and spinach raw or prepared any way. Really I love all veggies. I’m not a caramel or fudge person. Oh the horror!!
Liz @ Tip Top Shape
Aww man, pretzels and caramel sauce sounds AMAZING!! I love the sweet-salty-combo :D
Yellow Haired Girl
That soup looks delicious – I’ve never seen that recipe before! Yum yum yum.
I’m SO JEALOUS that you have the day off …. it’s a holiday up here in Canada too … but guess who’s working?! This kid. But obviously not very hard since I’m reading my fave blogs right now … whoopsie.
Heather @ run eat play
I would bathe in hot fudge if I could. Yum!
We have that same giant bag if tortilla strips from Costco. It’s funny because it’s right next to me as I was reading this!
I did BodyPump at 9am this morning!
Jealous of your day off! Enjoy every minute of it!
I am working today, boohoo. I did get a speedy run in this morning before work so I’m happy about that!
I love caramel…esp w/ apples! Those brownies look fantastic! My fave thing to dip w/ tortilla chips hands down would be hummus.
Yum! Everything looks so delish :). I like jicama and sugar snap peas raw. Carmel is so good, last time I had some was with apple slices. No workout for me :( haven’t been able to or the last 9 weeks, boo stress fracture! Enjoy your day off, yay!
Jenny @ simply be me
Carrots are my favourite raw but only because I can’t stand them when they are cooked – I always eat them but they are always the first thing to go on my plate :)
p.s. I love your shirt :)
I tried to convince my husband to buy that moose for me at Costco but he said “I didn’t need it”! LIAR! :-) I slept through my yoga class at 8:15 so now I need to figure out what kind of workout I should do today!
Angela @ Happy Fit Mama
I got to sleep in till 6 a.m. today! Wa-hoo! :)
My favorite veggie is a toss between cucumbers or carrots. When in doubt, I’ll take both!
Hot fudge all the way!
YUM those brownies look amazing!!
Nicole @ Haute Running Mama
Caramel all the way :)
Chips + Guac = Love
Chips + Whole Black Bean Dip + Cotija Cheese = 2nd love
I love having today off! I made it out the door at 6:30. That’s an hour and forty five later than usual on a Monday. I could sooooo get used to this!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats
Enjoy the day off!!! Looks like a delicious dinner to me! And genius with the pretzels and caramel… pure genius.
Deirdre @ Oh Well Whatever
Ugh, jealous! My alarm went off at 5am to start day one of the Jillian Body Revolution. Great, only 89 more days to go….
I am one of those very lucky folks that do NOT have the day off today, woo hoo!
Favorite thing to eat with chips is guacamole. OK, actually, my real favorite is nacho cheese dip, but I am trying to be healthy wherever possible. Favorite veggie to eat raw is spinach! I eat so much spinach that I could be Popeyette.
I’m still nursing a left knee ache. I’ve only run once this past week, which was last Thursday. My knee has been feeling good for the past few days, but it did prior to my run last Thursday, too. So I’m debating if I should try running today or if I should be really safe and take even more rest time? Meanwhile, I can just feel my runner’s conditioning going down the toilet… sigh.
I miss teaching!!! And I love that giant moose. Working out the midmorning is the BEST feeling! :)
HA HA! I have cream cheese chicken chili in the crock pot right now! Never made it before. Same thing happened last time you mentioned taco soup.. I already had it cooking (also for the first time). Too funny. YUM!
Brittnie (A Joy Renewed)
Going overboard with dessert is just necessary. Somehow I managed to eat ice cream 3x this past weekend. Ha!
My favorite veggie to eat raw is red/orange/yellow bell peppers. My favorite thing with chips is SALSA. I can eat salsa by the gallons. Oh and I would always pick hot fudge over caramel… any day. :)
We did not get off today :( And at 10:30, I am already in fourth period … almost fifth! This is why I can’t workout in the mornings anymore … WAHHHH
You are too precious! I LOVE baby carrots so, so much and I LOVE caramel sauce – yum, yum!
I also love your shirt!
megan @ muncher cruncher
Girlie, I love that you love that cream cheese chicken chili as much as I do. I STILL can’t stop smiling for you…you know why…
oh, and is that moose from costco? Please tell me it is?! LOVE YOU! xoxoxo
I made the cream cheese chicken chili and it was AMAZING!!!!
That makes me so so happy wahooooo!
