Last week the boys, Derrek, and I headed to Freddy’s for dinner. We were so excited to see Layla of @laylaliving and Heather of @foodhussy! We were invited to the Amelia location to learn about the restaurant and a new surprise coming to the menu. The cat is out of the bag now, or shall I say the curds are out….WHITE CHEDDAR CHEESE CURDS! Now, I’ve never heard of cheese curds before this dinner. We ordered them and fell in love! They were like little perfect, fried cheese balls! So you can’t go wrong with fried cheese…I highly suggest you get them next time you head to Freddy’s!
I love a good Acai bowl! I use the frozen Açaí packets and top with banana, strawberry, chia seeds, granola, kiwi, and more! I was getting the Sambazon Açaí pure. I got it at Whole Foods and only recently found it at Kroger/Meijer.
The Sambazon Facts
Trader Joe’s Facts
So based on the facts, the two are very similar…besides price. How did they compare taste wise? I really didn’t taste a difference. I truly enjoyed the Trader Joe’s pure as much as the Sambazon. The price is really what makes me turn more towards the Trader Joes product. To be able to save a couple bucks, I’ll be getting my Açaí at Trader Joes. I hope if you love açaí you can save a few dollars switching to Trader Joe’s brand also!
What do you put in your Açaí bowls? Let me know!
This is my favorite “easy like Sunday morning” breakfast. I just love enjoying my açaí bowl and reading a magazine…no rush!
I thought I’d show you guys how I make my açaí bowl here on the blog.
I get my Açaí in this frozen package. I know you can get it at Whole Foods or Kroger.
1) I take one individual package and run under a little warm water. You want to be careful not to completely melt it. I add one lightly thawed package and 2/3 banana to a blender.
2) Pour your mixture in a bowl and get ready to top it!
3) I use the leftover banana and a couple sliced strawberries. Sometimes I do just granola. Sometimes I do just chia seeds. Sometimes I do both!
I’m loving this Whirly Granola right now (Cincinnati made)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I hope you’re able to take time to enjoy your breakfast and relax 🙂
I wanted to bring you guys a fashion post today…but going with the theme of my life recently…I am bringing you food 🤤
We decided to get out of the house and take a road trip to the Eastside for doughnuts Sunday! Ever since I heard of a local doughnut shop called “Marcella’s” I’ve been dying to go. My sweet grandma’s name was Marcella. She is terribly missed. Marcella is such a unique, lovely name. Whenever I hear it I stop dead in my tracks.
As I looked up the GPS to our closest location, I noticed the reviews…one after another 5 star raving review! How have I not heard of it before?!
The boys and I agree with all of the 5 star reviews! These doughnuts were THE BEST! These doughnuts are gourmet & at the same time taste like they were made in a small kitchen with love.
We each picked one:
There’s something that makes you feel so good about shopping a small business…something you’ll never feel going through Dunkin’ Doughnuts drive through. We ended up getting a dozen to bring back to grandma and grandpa!
When you decide to go on a family doughnut run or surprise your family or coworkers with treats…go to Marcella’s…or go to your favorite small-local bakery. You won’t regret it!
We hope you have a wonderful week! Donut worry, be happy!
Last year, Chipotle rewarded 2.2 million readers with Reading Rewards and partnered with more than 6,000 schools and libraries. In 2018, Chipotle plans to expand the program, donating three million Reading Rewards.
“At Chipotle we’re not just passionate about feeding the communities we serve, but also feeding young minds,” said Chris Arnold, communications director at Chipotle. “Through the Reading Rewards program, we can help fuel an enthusiasm for reading and are pleased to supply teachers and librarians with the resources needed to encourage that passion.”
To apply for the Chipotle Reading Rewards program, teachers and librarians can visit chipotle.com/reading. Each school or library may only apply for Chipotle Reading Rewards once per calendar year. Applicants should be prepared to use a valid school or library email address and request the cards to ship directly to the school or library district.
Applications are reviewed and granted the second week in March and Reading Rewards are distributed by the end of March. Educators have the freedom to use these rewards as they see fit to promote literacy at their school or library.
Make sure to share with your friends and family!
Who doesn’t want to be rewarded with Chipotle!?
Speaking of Chipotle…I’m off to get a burrito bowl 🙂
