Sunday was another fun filled day. We started out the day by making a very tasty breakfast! We decided on some egg burritos. I put 2 whole eggs and the rest just egg whites into a bowl and mixed them up with a tad bit of milk. Then I added in peppers, onions, bacon, and I put some tomatoes and spinach on mine as well. I cooked everything up in the pan and then put it on a whole-wheat tortillas and THEN I put them on our George Foreman. Our friend Mary taught us this trick when we were in Charlotte and I do it A LOT now!
However, this process really makes a mess in the kitchen!
But it is totally worth it!
Then we did some running around to the store to get a few things including picking up a card for Kara’s little sister Lauryn who was celebrating her confirmation. Lauryn has been pretty much my little sister since she was just a tiny one! I remember when I first got my license and little Lauryn wanted to go to the mall with Kara and I and I was SO scared to drive with her the backseat! But now she is all grown up and has her temps so now she is the one driving! She is just an amazing young lady and I am always so impressed by her every time I see her. So Tim and I headed back out to Kara’s parent’s house to celebrate with Lauryn! It was a great party and I got to watch Kara’s little brother Josh consume 5 hotdogs. That was one of the highlights haha. Tim and I also enjoyed a hot dog and then jumped into the desserts! There was fruit pizza, Rice Krispie Treats, and even some Jello pretzel goodness. Yea, so like I said great party!
When Tim and I got home Tim fell asleep on the couch for a little while and I scrubbed down the bathroom. When he woke up he helped me finish up the cleaning and we prepared dinner together. Now, this is by no means a food blog but since this recipe is delicious and because this is now the 2nd time I have had it in the past week I thought I should share. YES we had taco mini-meatloaves again!
Recipe is as follows:
- 1 to 1 ½ pounds of lean ground turkey
- 1 packet taco seasoning (spicy or not)
- ½ green pepper cut up
- ½ jalapeño cut up
- 1 egg
- Handful of breadcrumbs
- Some cut up onion
Then mix it all together and put it in the oven to cook at 350 for about 35 minutes. We then topped it off with some Mexican cheese and put it back in the oven for 5 more minutes. We served this round of meatloaves with Stove Top (I LOVE STOVE TOP) and some asparagus. It was one of my favorite dinners and I cannot wait to make it again! What I like most about it is that you can pretty much put in whatever you want into this recipe and it taste like heaven. You can just make it your own.
Told ya, I love Stove Top!
So as great as this dinner was… the real magic of my evening happened after we ate dinner.
Tim’s cousin Katie just had 2 twin boys on Thursday so we made our way over to her house to visit with the new babies and well, I am officially obsessed. The boys are named Cameron and Calvin and they are literally just perfect. The best part was that Tim and I didn’t have to share! We walked in and Katie and Corey both handed us one and we got to play and visit with them for a few hours. I loved watching them look around to try to figure out the world. They were pretty sleepy boys but Calvin stayed up to play with me for a while so I loved that. Katie said he hadn’t stayed up that long for anyone so we are thinking I must be his favorite! He peed through his diaper on to Tim so I don’t think Tim is his favorite haha. In any case I woke up the next morning and missed the boys already! I wish I could see them everyday but I made sure to tell Kate and Corey that we want to be on the babysitting list!
I think I’d like to have twins… but we’ll see how I feel after I talk to Kate in a few weeks! I can’t wait to see them again! Check out some pictures below… get excited.
