All I think about is food...

Hey friends!  Sorry I've dropped off the face of the blog-earth lately!

I know I say this every time, but seriously, work is just crazy.  I'm hoping things slow down a bit so that I can get home at a decent time and spend a little time working on the blog.

I'm trying to keep up with reading some posts but I haven't been wonderful.  Please forgive me!

First things first...NEXT Wednesday is the Monthly Faves link-up!  Get your posts ready to share!  I can't wait to read what your January favorites were!

A Deeper Joy

Since work is NOT exciting to blog about, food kept coming to mind when I thought of this week.  So today's post mostly revolves around food. Ha!  Our cleanse last week was great!  I felt great and lost a few pounds.  Now that the Superbowl is coming up, I'm gaining it back - grrr!

And here's why...


This week, I made Ali's "Best Chicken Enchiladas Ever".  They were pretty darn delicious!  I wish I had made my sauce using her red enchilada sauce recipe though.  I used store-bought but next time, I'm making hers!


Ok here's my only healthy food item!  I bought this Naturade Soy Protein from HEB (also found on Amazon) and it's pretty good!  I'm tired of the flavor of my vegan protein so I needed a change. My smoothies taste MUCH better using this protein.


I start salivating when I think of Superbowl party foods!  On Sunday, we're going to a party with some of our new church friends and I'm bring a couple of my favorite (unhealthy) snacks.  I'll be making jalapeno poppers!

And because we're talking jalapeno poppers, here are a couple of my favorite recipes that you'll love!


I don't have a photo of this, but listen up!  My hubby's queso is the best queso ever.  It's VERY unhealthy so we don't make it often, but it's perfect for parties like this.  Here are the ingredients:

Ground beef (cook in Ortega taco sauce)
Velveeta cheese
Tostitos jarred queso
Green chilis

That's it.  It's amazing!  I think it's the taco sauce that makes it a little more unique.


Did you see Tiffany's Game Day recipes??  I drooled reading this post.  She's heading to AZ for the Superbowl because she and her hubby are crazy Seahawks fans!  I'm sure she'll have some fun stuff to talk about after so don't forget to check it out next week!

Have a great weekend, friends!  Be safe and enjoy the festivities!

Linking up with Karli, April, Erika and Amanda today!
