Five on Friday- “Backstreet’s back, alright!”

1.  Backstreet Boys! Greg got me ticket’s to see the Backstreet Boys for my birthday and we finally got to go see them.  Although I was definitely way more of an N’SYNC fan growing up, I did like me some Backstreet Boys. The concert was good, although they must have just released a new CD and I didn’t know any of their new songs, but the classics were definitely a hit!


2.  Public Health Day  I was asked to be the nutritionist of the day at a local town’s Public Health Day.  I really enjoyed getting to talk to so many people about nutrition.  The day flew by and definitely beat my office admin day job! I met some people that were interested in having a nutritionist come to their businesses to give their staff healthy eating advice so hopefully it will bring some good experience my way.

3. The original Cookie Butter!   I wasWAY late jumping on the Cookie Butter, and  since Trader Joe’s is unfortunately not in the UK, I heard about the original cookie butter that I can buy here!  I have had the Lotus cookies before and they are amazing and this spread is just as good.  It’s super rich so a little dab does the job!


4. Venison  We recently discovered venison meatballs, steaks, and sausages sold at our grocery store.  I wasn’t too sure how I felt about venison, I used to have it as a kid at my grandparents during deer hunting season and I don’t think I really cared for it then, so I was a bit wary.  The meatballs were on sale so we decided to try them.  They come with a little packet of sauce similar to spaghetti sauce, and ya’ll, they were amazzzzzzing.  So good I want to eat them every night of the week, I think the sauce really takes them to another level.  We just bought the sausages and steaks to try.  I don’t think they have any sauce with them so we shall see how they compare.

5. Sweet potato love  I am a creature of habit and have been having roasted sweet potatoes, asparagus, and mushrooms with so many of our dinners lately.

Growing up in Texas, I pretty much lived off of refried bean and cheese tacos, Taco Cabana anyone?!  As much as I love tortillas, they are made with white flour and lard so I thought I would put my beloved beans and cheese on some leftover roasted sweet potatoes for some more nutritional value instead.  They are the perfect after work snack and a few bites is all I need to get my fix.  You can take the girl out of Texas…….



N’SYNC or Backstreet Boys? 

Do you like venison?

  1. Venison is one of my favorites!! It has such a different flavor compared to beef, lamb, elk, etc! I just adore it – I must find those balls ;)
