Foodie Heaven: What I Ate Wednesday

Drumroll please… My FIRST foodie blog post! What-I-Ate-Wednesday is here and ready for the world. My day was a little crammed full today, so by the time I even made it to Pinterest to browse Skinny Mom’s recipe page, I already didn’t feel like making anything difficult. Enter, Healthy Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins. I saw this recipe and immediately had to try it because it has melted cheese on top and I am a sucker for cheesy dishes.

Here is the original blog that the recipe came from…. Half Baked Harvest. Here is the link for the recipe!

This was a good recipe for me, because I had most everything besides the sweet potatoes and a couple ingredients. Post-grocery shot… Food bloggers are AWESOME. I kept forgetting to photograph steps :/

I pretty much doubled the recipe, because sweet Jason was coming for dinner and I guess I expected him to eat 2 whole sweet potatoes… This did not happen so I now have 4 leftover skins to consume.

Recipe hint: These are filling. I would follow the recipe unless you have 6 or more people eating. ALSO, it is spicy. I personally love spicy food, but my mom does NOT and “her mouth was on fire”. We had a little greek yogurt on the side which went great with the skins. Highly recommended.

And Bead Happy bracelets… And wine. Duh.

And finished products! My dear roomie made some delish asparagus from Cooking Light which was amaze and went really well with the skins.
Overall Verdict: These are AWESOME. I loved the flavors and the spice. The mix of the hot peppers and the sweet potato really was great and I would definitely make these again. I approved, Roomie approved, Mom approved AND Boyfriend approved. Clear winner. Now finishing the night by blogging, wine-ing and cringing at the sound of Nicki Minaj’s voice watching American Idol.
Goodnight friends and remember to BEad Happy! 🙂

Stack of the Day!

20130328-104907.jpg

Good morning bloggers! This is me checking out my brand new WordPress app…. Loving this stack. Somehow, every piece of jewelry that I am attracted to ends up being turquoise. Is it just me, or should turquoise be the number one arm candy staple?

I have potential HUGE news in my life that I’m hoping to share within a week…. Keep your eyes out 🙂

Make today great and remember to always BEad happy!!!

Thanks to Skinny Margs….

Hello blogosphere! I finally got around to making some bracelets tonight. After a skinny margarita (and a half), I was feeling it. ABOUT TIME! I need to get over this creative block issue if I am going to really take off with this bracelet making… I’m thinking it could potentially be a problem. Maybe I need skinny margs every night? Let’s go with that.

At any rate, new bracelets are on the market. Now to get them OFF the market, so I can replenish my bead stash 🙂
