I always have Ortega green chiles in my pantry. I add them to burritos, beans, eggs and more. They are NOT hot or spicy at all. The can even says ‘mild’ and it is for real. But, they add a great flavor to dishes and I love it!

I have a sad panda. Literally.

I bought a cute panda spoon from China and just found it broken. I wrapped it up in my clothes to keep it from breaking and put it through the wash on accident. #SadPanda

    I love me some green chiles as well! I have been on an egg kick every morning mainly because I am going grain free. Loving it so far! For dinner tonight I made buffalo chicken in the crock pot and added it to a lettuce wrap. TO.DIE.FOR!

    What a cute, yet sad, little penguin…:(

    We had meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans. And, my 13 year old baked a cake from scratch….so it appears I made up for my light eating on Sunday by indulging on Monday. :-)

    Its okay, tonights workout is a track workout so ill burn it off. Lol

    The omelet looks amazing btw!!

    I don’t know what’s for dinner yet. I was actually thinking quinoa mixed with scrambled eggs and cheese…(Don’t consider me “meatless” though. I have a good amount of chili chock full of cow for lunch) but I don’t know if the BF and daughter will go for it. I may add kielbasa to theirs……

    Tonight for dinner might be a salad from Panera or Chicken Maison’s chicken kabobs. I love omelets or scrambles any time of day! I had an veggie scramble with green chilies on Sunday for brunch….MMmmmm!
