Hey guys!

Shopping was fun – I even channeled my inner 4th grader and got some stirrup pants!

Kidding! Seriously though, I used to rock stirrup pants back in the day…and apparently now they’re back in fashion? I suppose they would be good for boots, but I’m don’t know if I’m ready to go back there quite yet! Do you have stirrup pants?

Ben and I also went grocery shopping and picked up something I’ve been super curious about – Throwback Mountain Dew made with real sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that I can’t have more than 2 sips of regular pop without getting an instant sugar headache. But with all the hype surrounding the sugar/HFCS swap, I felt like I had to give it a try!

The verdict? Syrupy sweet – maybe even sweeter than Dew made with HFCS. I stuck with a sip and moved on. Good effort on Pepsi Co’s part for coming out with a unique product in a saturated market, but it’s still just too much for me! Do you drink regular pop? I used to drink regular Mt. Dew all.the.time. in college – I have no idea how I used to do it! 8O

Around 4:00 my stomach started growwwwling with a fierceness. I peeked around my cupboards and found myself with all the ingredients for Homemade Chipotle Burrito Bowls. Yessssss!

I followed my standard recipe, but subbed cubed, extra-firm tofu for chicken (seasoned the same way and baked for 20 minutes @ 375 degrees) and instead of making my own salsa, I used the homemade stuff my friend gave me from our potluck yesterday!

Ben better watch it, because I am literally falling HARD for baked tofu. I absolutely adore it!!!!

If I closed my eyes I could have literally been sitting down at Chipotle. This recipe is spot on!

Lime & cilantro rice, spiced black beans & tofu, fresh salsa and a couple dashes of green Tabasco sauce. Perf.

I add a TON of cilantro to my rice and even add some on top of the whole dish. I find that most people either love or hate cilantro. I’ve even seen Facebook groups dedicated to taking sides! Where do you stand?

Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. I might be making this again tomorrow…you’ve been warned. ;)

And because I haven’t had any chocolate today, (the horror!) I demolished a Chocolate Brownie PURE Bar for dessert. So.friggin.delicious! I could eat 10 of these – they’re like brownie batter bars!

I think I’m watching the movie Valkyrie tonight. Anyone ever see it? I’m not a huge fan of Tom Cruise’s (15% of me believes he really IS keeping Katie Holmes prisoner!!) but I feel like I should see the movie for some reason or another… hmmm…

Have a good night, peeps!

Looking back, what were some of your biggest fashion faux paus growing up?

Mine include enormous bangs, too many scrunchies, fluorescent EVERYTHING, and No Fear shirts. Oh, the horror!
