i got the chance to feed these gorgeous, fit ladies this past weekend! Kimberly (l) & Nichola are figure competitors and group fitness instructors in addition to their respective full-time careers. busy women who make fitness a priority. i.e., my kinda’ women. they took about all the teasing they could stand from my facebook and IG pics and invited themselves over 😛 . j/k, we finally got our schedules together after trying to plan something for months. i thoroughly enjoyed cooking for them and the non-stop laughter the entire time. check out tha spread:
hummus (topped with a little EVOO, s & p) with fresh cut red, yellow, orange bell peppers, cucumbers, and those addicting pretzel crisps, the sesame variety.
of course i made burgers. you know me. i let my apple-chicken burger mix marinate over night to ensure a flavor packed patty. it’s a fam fave. also, homemade guacamole, lettuce tomato, Sweet n’ Spicy Sweet Potato Fries from my e-book accompanied the burgers. the toasted buns were sprouted grain from Alvarado Street Bakery.
breakfast and snacks for us for the next few days, yum.
i hope you guys can use some of these ideas for your next gathering.
also, the base recipe for my clean shrimp fried brown rice can be found here, but i added a few extra thangs the last time i made it (last week) like:
pineapple! the tropical twist was so refreshing; you’ll love it. as far as the shrimp marinade, i used Weber All Natural Boston Bay seasoning blend instead of the Mrs. Dash and only 1 tbsp of liquid aminos. try this asap.
so super bowl is upon us! and once again my husband waits two weeks before to mention hosting a party. who does that? i know it’s a big event (and annual) but it’s outta sight outta mind to me and i don’t watch ESPN. womp 😡
Q: what are you doing for the big game this year?
