Another chili [chilly] day

Two posts in the same day! Sometimes I post multiple times in one day and sometimes I don’t post for a week… look at me being inconsistent.


But that’s unimportant. You know what is important? Chubby’s chili.


Actually, it’s called Chief’s Chili. My dad has three brothers and they all have nicknames and my dad was dubbed as Chief.

In case you want to know, and I know you do, my uncle’s nicknames are Otto, Speedy and Weiner.




Here we go chili here we go! *clap clap*

Beautiful is it not? Veggie filled and delicious. Chubby constantly stresses the fact that he uses extremely lean ground beef when he makes it. He’s also very generous with the herbs and spices so the flavor is out-of-control awesome.


Another point for healthy LaForges!


Take this picture and multiply it by 3 or 4

I’ve been eating this exact thing for multiple meals these past couple day. Chili on top of lots of romaine with a side of cardboard. The chili has a nice spicy kick to it which I LOVE. It’s just so good… I can’t stop eating it! No, I don’t need a chili intervention.


At least not yet. I’ll get back to you about that.


Nana made a pizza and made me take a picture of it.

“It’s SO BEAUTIFUL!” …. her words, not mine.


Chubby also made sausage bread and it was quite beautiful looking as well

Funnest shape ever. Doesn’t it look like a rainbow?! 😀

Can you see the parsley? Chubby was very adamant about the parsley.


If I were to give an award for best thing to photograph ever it would definitely be oatmeal

I think my picture taking skills are improving a little bit. Maybe?

Even if no one else agrees, it was still delicious! I changed it up from my usual handful of blueberries and added some cinnamon apple pieces instead.

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Half a banana
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • Half an apple cut up and microwaved with cinnamon
  • A mixture of 2 tbsp vanilla Chobani and 2 tsp AB

Nice and warm and perfect. Ha bisky!


And that’s all I’ve got for ya. I need to go ask the parentals if any of my assistance is required as we prepare for yet ANOTHER snow storm. The weather people are talking 12 to 18 inches this time. Oh boyyyyy. It’s OK though… and do you know why?


The stationary bike has relocated into the dungeon AKA right outside of my room in the basement. Guess who can bike whenever she wants and without 16 million layers?!?



Has anyone had pumpkin coffee from D&D?! I finally got to try some today and it’s fabulous!

Oh hey soreness, nice to see you again.

Good morningggg!

My legs are super sore on this fine day. Yesterday’s workout was all over the place what with squats and running and yoga. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in any pain… it’s more like the soreness that hurts so good 😉

Teehee, that’s dirty.

Rainbow food pictures are good for transitions from dirty jokes.


Still with the camera pictures but I take full responsibility for this still being a problem. For some reason I keep forgetting to inform my mom that I left the charger at home. I’m going to call her later so I’ll have to remind myself.


Let’s begin with another reason why Starbucks is epic.

We’ve all seen, loved, fallen victim, cried uncontrollably about and bowed down in respect to the majesty that is the pumpkin spice latte.  However, look who else has joined the party of autumn time drinks!

Pumpkin coffee? And with skim milk! Don’t mind if I do. It was a more intensified version of the latte (obvs?) and I definitely enjoyed it just as much. Now I have a routine of switching off what I order every time I go 🙂

Before class I finally tried a new bar that I got for free (YAY COUPONS!)

(I’m sorrrrrrry about the picture suckness. This is just plain horrible)

A cherry pomegranate Clif C bar (heyyy Clif Bars heyyy!) and with a whole serving of fruit! Nutritional stats anyone?

From the looks of it, it’s not exactly an out-of-the-ballpark kind of bar but they’re pretty solid. And if anything I would buy it for the taste alone. It’s a two layer bar with a nut crust (who doesn’t love nut crust?!?) and the fruit on top; very pie esq. I loved the cherry pom0grante flavor, not artificial tasting at all!

It wasn’t the best at tackling my hunger but it definitely was tasty!

SIDENOTE: Since when do THESE exist and WHY haven’t I had one?!?!

Pumpkin.pie.Clif.Bar…. WANT.IT.

Moving on, I haven’t been photographing my morning oats too much because of the camera issue. However, yesterday’s bowl was an exception.

See that splotch that looks like almond butter? Nope, it’s actually a form of PUMPKIN BUTTER.

It was one of the desserts at Sam’s party last week and I piled a ginger snap with at least 2 tbsp of it it order to bring back to Rider. Made with reduced fat cream cheese, pumpkin and cinnamon, it was the BEST addition to my oats.

Another thing to put on my list of things to make… I really should make a legitimate list. Le’ sigh. Guess I should go be productive? Seems like it. Roomie is sleeping still so I have no one to play with. Hahahaha.

Have a fabulous day everyone! 😀
