Craving Chipotle & Pumpkin Muffins
I’ve been craving Chipotle since yesterday afternoon. I wanted to get it for dinner last night but didn’t have time to pick it up before babysitting. I wanted to get it for lunch today but I didn’t have time before picking my parents up from the airport. Thankfully I worked my charm and convinced my parents we needed to get it for dinner! Even though it meant missing lots of the Red Carpet and standing in a ridiculously long line, I needed the sauteed veggies and blob of guac. I just did.
Backing up, after my Breakfast Bake this morning I saw Just Go With It with my brother. It was pretty funny but nothing spectacular. I had no idea that Nicole Kidman and Dave Matthews were in it! And I’m not sure how I feel about Brooklyn Decker as an actress….
But wearing bikinis? She’s pretty good at that.
After the movie I rushed to the other side of the city to watch my high school compete in state racquetball championships! Did you know I played racquetball for four years? It is so fun and I need to play more often. My high school was doing really well and my friend’s little sister eventually placed 1st. AWESOME!
Going to this meant no Chipotle for lunch, but I did have time to rush home and microwave a Dr. Praeger’s. I had it with a laughing cow and some hummus on a sandwich thin. On the side I steamed some broccoli and had an apple.
Guess what! I think eating right away yesterday worked because I’m not as insatiable today. Hungry, yes, but I can at least go a couple hours between meals:)
Before picking up dinner I set out to use some of the pumpkin from the can I opened this morning. I knew it would sit in there for a while and didn’t want to let it go to waste. Anne P. is my go-to for yummy and healthy muffins, and I decided to use her recipe for Pumpkin Muffins of Deliciousness. I used regular sugar instead of brown sugar (mine was rock solid) and plain Greek yogurt instead of vanilla. Deeelish! I love how easy muffins are to make and now I’ll have some quick desserts or snacks throughout the week.
Back to the Oscars!! The only one I really care about is Colin Firth. His performance in The King’s Speech was phenomenal!
