Today was all about cooking, sunshine and shopping!!! We woke up early and headed out with The Husband’s mom to Denio’s Farmer’s Market & Swap Meet. The Husband LOVES going here….me, eh, not so much, but, I am a trooper :) We typically go maybe once or twice a year, but, I have to say it wasn’t so bad this time around. I used it as a chance to rack up a lot of steps and we all scored a few good deals!
The Husband packed up my breakfast and we took it on the road (recycled picture because I remembered AFTER I ate my Lemon Chia Seed Muffin) ~ Recipe coming this weekend!
I did remember to take a picture of my Venti Iced Decaf Non Fat Latte with Caramel Drizzle.
After about 3 hours of shopping, I was ready for a snack ~ I am SO GREEN today with all these recycled pictures ;) I shared a pack of WW Rosemary Olive Oil Pretzel Thins with The Husband and his mom.
I think the COOLEST part of the market, might have been their farmer’s market. They had $1 bags of everything. I bought 15 Jalapeños, BIG Red Grapes, 7 bulbs of garlic and some ginger ~ all for $3!
I also scored two pairs of really cute flip flops for $3, The Husband’s mom got a really cute swim suit wrap for $18 and The Husband even found some $1 poker chips~ Fun!!!
Since we were in town, we had to stop at Jack’s Urban Eats for lunch. My salad was phenomenal ~ my mouth is watering just seeing this picture 🙂
In the mix:
* Mixed Greens
* Garbanzo/Kidney Beans
* Pickled Onions
* Candied Walnuts
* Grilled Chicken Breast
* Balsamic Vinaigrette
I want to go back just so I can have it all over again 🙂
I spent the afternoon whipping up some new recipes that I will be sharing this week/weekend! Here is a picture sneak peak……
Dinner tonight was courtesy of The Husband’s Pallet! He was craving a BBQ Chicken Wrap and made the suggestion we use the new Watkins Salsa & Sour Cream Spice Blend we picked up yesterday at the home and garden show..
I started off by “rubbing” two organic chicken breasts with the Salsa and Sour Cream Spice Mix. Then, during the last 5 minutes of grilling, I topped them with TJ’s BBQ Sauce.
While the chicken cooked, I prepped the wrap toppers.
I also mixed 1 1/2 Tbsp’s of the Salsa Spice Blend with a 1/2 cup of FF Greek yogurt. This is going to make an AMAZING veggie dip! I LOVE this spice blend – it’s sweet, hot & salty!
I started off with a Jalapeño Salsa Tortilla topped with more BBQ sauce.
Then, a smear of the spicy salsa yogurt spread.
1 oz sprinkle of part skim mozzarella.
3 oz of the spicy bbq chicken.
AVOCADO, red bell pepper & lettuce.
WOW ~ this was sweet from the BBQ, spicy from the Salsa Blend, creamy from the spicy yogurt mix and AVOCADO, cheesy and crunchy. I WISH I made more for leftovers 😀
Speaking of shopping…..get ready for yet ANOTHER SHOPPING GIVEAWAY coming up this week!
You also will have a chance to BID ON MY BAKE SALE ITEMS over at NHerShoes beginning tomorrow ~ I will post the details and link when the bake sale goes live!
Off to relax and enjoy the last little bit of our weekend!
