Is This March in KC??

March 12, 2015

I know some people get tired of talking about it, but I’m just so happy to have the unseasonably warm weather! It was in the upper 70’s yesterday!

I opened up the windows, so the house smells nice and fresh, the dogs are spending lots of time in the backyard, I’m having my morning coffee with a nice cool breeze blowing through the house….and you guys….sunshine just makes me happy!

I even got out the flip flops yesterday!



Warm weather means a busy day at the Food Truck. I seriously love that job! At the end of the day yesterday, the only thing we had left were a few burgers, so I brought two of them home. As soon as I walked in the door, I cut a Boom Boom Burger in half, then in half again……

The 1/4 of the burger that I ate now looks really SMALL! 🙂

I saved the rest for Mike!



I made a yummy dinner last night, and although I didn’t eat a really balanced diet yesterday, it was a yummy food day!

I’m on my way to the doctor today for an Xray to see how the collarbone is healing. I broke it 5 weeks ago, and it’s been a frustrating 5 weeks.

I’m having all sorts of issues with both of my shoulders, so I’m anxious to see what the doc says. Right before I broke my right collarbone, I was ready to make an appointment to have my left shoulder looked at to see why it’s bothering me so much. Sleeping sucks right now, and I’m a little tired of the aches and pains. Now, after breaking my collarbone, my right shoulder is really bothering me, so hopefully that’s just collarbone related, and time will heal.

We shall see…….

I really miss Yoga, and I was loving the Jazzercise….. 

Okay, I’ve ranted a bit. I’m done now.

Happy Thoughts……the sun is shining!


Here are yesterday’s eats…….


Scrambled Egg Whites, Gluten Free Toast With Almond Butter

1/4 Boom Boom Burger with Slaw, Bun only on the bottom







I snacked on these while making dinner! Some of these were HUGE!!

10 PPV

I made Gina’s (from  Butternut Squash Black Bean Enchilada’s for dinner and I loved them!



I have loved every recipe of her’s that I have ever made!

Following her recipe, One Enchilada is 5 PointsPlus. I used a smaller tortilla (the fajita size), so my enchilada’s were 4 PointsPlus for One Enchilada, and 9 PointsPlus for Two Enchilada’s.

Easy and Delish!
