OK. Before I go all green on you.. I NEED to tell you about some awesome ‘balls’ I found. Don’t let your mind wander too far. I like to call these Chocolate Balls. There have been different versions of these ‘balls’ all over the blog-sphere, so I give credit to all. They are sooo good. I should come up with a fun, crazy name, but Chocolate Balls it is! Enjoy!

Chocolate Balls

(Sadly I didn’t take a photo of the plate FULL… Where is my head sometimes?!?!?)

Collect the following ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop of protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax

(These mini bowls were a house-warming presents from Jess and Sandra when I moved in NPT. Thanks guys.. I LOVE them.. and use them all the time!)

1. Melt the chip with the PB and almond milk in a sauce pan. Once melted add in the coconut, powder and flax. Stir. Then add in the oatmeal.

2. On a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, scoop or ball 2 Tablespoons on this amazing stuff. But in fridge for 10 minutes.

3. Take out and ENJOY. Honestly these were soooo good ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok. Now time for some GREEN!!

Dinner was whole wheat pasta, cubed chicken, and brussel sprouts with garlic, oil olive, sprinkle cheese and S&P! Then.. I decided I was going to drink my salad and dessert in one! I made a green monster. I’ve made these before, and LOVE them.. it’s not really a winter thing.. but who cares!!

Basically a green monster is the following blended:

  • a couple cups of fresh spinach
  • a cup of almond milk
  • a few ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 scoop amazing grass powder
  • whatever fruit you want.. tonight was frozen mango from Trader Joe’s and a strawberry/banana mix found in the back of the freezer!

1. Blend in a blender. Pour into a fancy glass and enjoy!

I know it may look gross… but I wish you would taste it before you judged the monster.. they are soo good and don’t taste like spinach AT ALL ๐Ÿ™‚ If your interested check this website out.. there are lots of different ideas for monsters!

I’m watching TBL, while doing a bunch of other stuff. I’m just not into it like I once was! Hmmmm.. perhaps it’s because Jillian and Bob are leaving?!?!?… not really sure :/

I’m off to snag the last Chocolate Ball!

Happy Tuesday night everyone ๐Ÿ™‚





I just love snow. I love the idea of not having to go to the office first thing in the morning. I love how I can hang with Remi for a few more minutes and not run out the door like normal. I love the look of fresh snow.. it covers up all the brown mush! I just need to figure out how to get enough of it again.. so we can STAY HOMEย  for the ENTIRE day. I have lots of scrap-booking, quilting, ebaying and cooking to catch up on ๐Ÿ™‚

Classes re-started ย last night. I’m wicked excited for these 2 upcoming classes. One is Color and Design.. hmmm.. I think I should fit in perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚ I got to class around 6:45pm.. it starts at 7pm.. and there was one girl sitting there. We chatted for a bit, then it was 7pm and I was like.. where is everyone. Turns out the class has 3 students in it!!! 3 students. I thought my Intro to Graphic Design was small with 9 students.. but 3.. geez. I received a huge list of supplies I need. Very excited to finally go to the art store. We shall see how Computer Drawing goes.. first class is Wednesday.. right when the snow is supposed to start.

Last week I had a Pampered Chef party. I was so excited. It was for a lady that my Mom used to be friends with years ago. This lady basically watched me grow up from distance. Anyway. She has 5 boys. Ages ranging from Junior in College to 11 (I think!). I was looking around the kitchen trying to figure out where to set up all my ‘stuff’.. when I saw this on the wall!

I know you can’t read it.. but above the chalk board is says Daily Specials. I thought this was just GREAT. Talk about being organized. It works great, because all the kids know exactly what’s coming, also, the Mom know what she needs for which night and when. I hope to someday be as organized as this family! ย PS- BFD = Breakfast for Dinner. I made reservations for this night.. LOL

Stay warm. Be safe. Have a great day!

It’s Tuesday… KNOCKOUT. DINNER. TBL. Stay tuned ๐Ÿ™‚
