Hi Everyone! Hope you are off to a great start to the week. I had a few hiccups so far, but I am pushing on! Cause that’s what Warriors do. ūüôā

Today is my half birthday and in the spirit of my half birthday Jared surprised me with this at lunch!

Seriously, how cute is he? I really needed that smile and laugh today to lift my spirits. ūüôā

This was my half birthday lunch made by Chef Jared. Sunnyside up egg on top of a turkey burger. I don’t see what’s so weird about that? Mighty delicious to me!

Ok so here is the Nutella¬†Muddy Muddy recipe I have been promising. ***Note: NOT a healthy recipe at all*** I am however in the works of recreating a “healthier” version of it and I am really excited about it!!! It may not happen for a few weeks though, so you will have to be patient.

Nutella Muddy Buddies (Puppy Chow)

9 cups chex mix (look for the gluten free one options if making this GF)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup nutella*
1/2 cup peanut butter (almond butter would be good too)
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, nutella and butter on power level 5 checking/stiring every 30 seconds until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

*If you want a stronger nutella flavor, reduce the chocolate chips to 1/4 cup and increase nutella to 3/4 cup.

Remember I promised my messy kitchen picture? I don’t break promises.

This is actually after I¬†Jared¬†already half cleaned… then I decided I should take a picture. Maybe next time I will remember¬†when it’s at¬†full-blown insanity.¬† He still can never understand how I have 20 bowls out and most of the flour ends up on the counter.¬† More fun making a mess in¬†my humble but accurate opinion. ūüėČ

P.S. Sorry about all my crappy phone pictures on this blog. :/ I was kinda lazy with the real camera last few days.  

On another note, lately my blogs have mostly been on food/recipes and there have been no specific health topic related blogs.  I have a lot of topics on my list that I have been wanting to cover so expect a post on something beneficial this week! We are all always learning together. 

Laugh of the day:
So cute!
