I <3 Fridays

I Love Friday!

I had such a wonderful Friday! It all started on the right foot with some good breakfast food. I prepared breakfast cookies for Matt & I the night before. After eating packaged Erin Baker’s Breakfast Cookies, I was craving a homemade one! Plus, I had seen someone use cocoa powder/hot chocolate in oats & it looked so good! [I cant remember who it was, Im sorry! Let me know in the comments if you were the genius!]

Cocoa Breakfast Cookie:
1/3 c oats
1/2 banana
1/3 c cocoa powder [Im crazy for cocoa!]
1/8 c soy milk

So good!!! Even Matt loved it & he prefers his oatmeal hot & with cinnamon! I think my two star ingredients were the key.


After breakfast I realized I had some unfinished work to do, so on my day off I had to go into work! I ended up getting tied up for a few hours & didn’t even stop for a snack! I ended up meeting a friend at Starbucks to catch up and order my very first Vivianno smoothie.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie with a Tangelo. Can someone fill me in on what the elo part is of a Tangelo. I get the Tang is part Tangerine, but Elo?

Once returning home from my friend-date I sat myself down on the couch with some DVR to catch up on The Biggest Loser. Ah! I missed you Jillian & Bob. My ‘lunch’ kept me satisfied for an hour or two, but I was feeling snacky so I had a serving of these little guys:

His & Her Dinners

As part of our New Years Relationship Resolutions, I made the ‘Her’ part of dinner last night.

On the menu was:

Roasted Asparagus

Tri-colored Orzo

Mozzarella & Proscuitto Stuffed Chicken Breast


Stuffed chicken is so easy to make. Matt tenderized the meat & then I just put some cheese and sliced Proscuitto in there and rolled it. It was not the most beautiful display, but it tasted really good.

You cant love a day without chocolate!


Were off to an Alehouse for dinner & brews with some friends. Hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!

  1. I’ve completely forgotten about Vivanno’s. They’re the best! It’s just too cold for anything frozen

    My guess is that the -elo is for pomelo. Not sure though 🙂

  3. Oh Vivanno’s are awesome! Yum..

  4. Looks like your dog is eyeing up that chocolate too 🙂

  5. Are you talking about the Alehouse in North Liberty? If so, I’ve been there…really good. Your stuffed chix also looks yummy!

    And you’ve reminded me I have a$25 Starbucks giftcard I need to use up!
