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…….

  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 ;)
