I am not even going to pretend to take credit for these creating the recipe for these cheesy chicken meatballs… but they were so delicious I had to share it. So I’m embarking on this 21 day diet and workout plan to get my butt back in gear after not eating so healthy for a while. I always feel my best when I’m eating right and working out, so yeah. This needed to happen. I knew I had some ground chicken that needed to be cooked, and I wasn’t really sure what to do with it, so I did what any normal human would do: I asked Google.
Oh hi there. How was your weekend? Mine wasn’t too shabby – lots of running, brunch at Pele’s Wood Fire with friends, bottomless mimosas, you know, the usual. Oh right. Then there was the Mac and Cheese Carnitas Tacos I made for dinner on Saturday.
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
I have committed the ultimate betrayal against my cholesterol level: a Krispy Kreme burger.
Known to many as the “Luther Vandross,” this Southern delicacy is simply a cheeseburger with plain glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme as a bun (we added bacon because why not?). We’ve been talking about making these for months now, but there’s always been a reason we couldn’t do it or we’d just forget. It’s been a busy year!
I originally made this as a pork roast the weekend before last for Austin. I promised him that I would cook a Whole30 dinner that he’d also love so that I wouldn’t have to worry about navigating a restaurant’s menu. With some quick googling, I found a promising dry rubbed pork recipe (minus the brown sugar). After spending six hours in the oven, the pork came out incredible. Because it was so good, I figured I’d give it a shot with a beef roast so that Liz could have some.
I had the most amazingly productive morning the other day.
I got up and prepped some short ribs for braising, then headed to the gym with Ashley. We knocked out the first workout of The New Rules of Lifting for Women and a little Ab Ripper X. I came home, showered, curled my hair, did my make up, braised the short ribs, and threw them in the crock pot. I topped things off by doing the dishes and making the bed.
