A lot of working it out today. A lot of sweating on the community mic screen. Yeah, gross that a lot of use the same one right? Sometimes it’s a little wet because of the person who taught before you. I really need to restock my personal ones to bring with me.
Oh, and just a little matchy matchy for the second round of classes. Silly.
Best new song in spin class today- Flashdance- What a Feeling. We did a hill climb to it and it was awesome.
You might have already seen these, but I just had to show you how cool these new socks are.
I didn’t wear them today (they didn’t match), but I’m already excited to be sporting them for the 4th whether I’m racing or not.

Email me your mailing information and what size and product you want and I’ll send it along.
I love giving stuff away.
I also love roasted butternut squash with dark cocoa powder and cinnamon.
After roasting at 375 for 45 minutes or so.
In a big STUFTified bowl with coconut oil, Peanut Free NuttZo and almond butter.
Random, but I forgot how much I love roasted cauliflower too.
Dang it is so great dipped in marinara sauce.
Same goes for Brussel sprouts.
Both were on the menu tonight with a few other things.
Um, I also love this picture from our Father’s Day feast Sunday.
My bro put together one heck of a BBQ Sunday night.
I was in charge of roasted zucchini and potatoes. I figured I’d do the zucchini my way and then go with the standard people pleasing recipe for the potato dish.
I love quick, easy, throw together side dishes that can please a crowd. These have absolutely nothing to do with any sort of STUFT detox or no sugar challenge or anything. They are definitely not dairy free, but they are ridiculously delicious and easy.
These potatoes I made for Father’s Day impressed everyone (even all the men) so I figured it was worth sharing. It’s the least I can do.
This is a good old easy, cheesy, hash brown potato side dish made from frozen hash browns.
Yep. I’m just all over the darn place.
I didn’t take any pictures of the dish when I threw it together because that’s exactly what I did. It wasn’t pretty. I got a few shots of the leftovers (while we still has some) though.
Here you go.
People Pleasing Hash Brown Dish
(makes one big 9 x 13 dish)
2 pounds frozen hash browns
1 cup melted butter or margarine
1 can cream of chicken soup
1- 1 1/2 cup cheese (I like to use American or a mix of American and provolone)
1 cup low fat sour cream
1 cup low fat milk
1 Italian seasoning dressing packet (same as what I use in the crockpot chicken and mushroom pasta)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)
Spray 9 x 13 baking dish. Place hash browns in the bottom. Mix all other ingredients and pour over potatoes. Sprinkle crushed tortilla chips on the top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Uncover and cook 5-10 additional minutes.
Nothing STUFTified about these.
But they will impress the best.
And you know who are the best in my world?
Grandma and Papap.
Today was their 41st wedding anniversary and I dropped the ball yet again on really giving them a celebration they deserve. We should really take them on some awesome vacation or something like they did for us way back in the day before J and J.
(Throwback picture from a family Belize trip in 2009.)
Instead I just made some measly potatoes for Father’s Day.
My poor parents.
Love you Mom and Dad!
Do you have a favorite easy go to side dish you bring to events?
(I usually hit up Costco when I’m desperate. Ha ha.)
