TGIF! This week has been busy per usual & fun! It was so nice adjusting to being engaged mixed with our normal life. Everything is pretty much the same as before except we talk a lot about wedding planning now. Another thing that’s different is RJ is really open to trying new things. He’s not Catholic but I am, he recently started coming to church with me and on Wednesday he got his ashes for Ash Wednesday!! Last night it was Bring Your Boy to Barre at Neighborhood Barre. With a little convincing he actually decided to come! Needless to say it was hilarious and he said he has a whole new appreciation for our workouts! 

With busy weeks like this one, I’m always on the lookout for quick, healthy and delicious date night dinners. This chicken is my absolute favorite (especially since I could eat mexican food every night of the week) and my favorite way to eat it is over roasted sweet potatoes (in the pictures above we paired it with shrimp but it’s a lot better with chicken, I just couldn’t eat meat on Ash Wednesday)

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients: 

2 Sweet Potatoes 

2 Tablespoons of Cumin

1 Tablespoon of Paprika

2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

2. On a baking sheet, combine all the ingredients. Toss to coat evenly.

Mexican Bowls

Serves 2-3 

Ingredients:

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Skinny Fiesta Chicken 

1 Can of Black Beans 

1-2 Cups of Arugula

1 Avocado (Optional)

Directions:

1. Heat black beans according to can.

2. In a bowl layer sweet potatoes, chicken (with a little bit of the juices), black beans and arugula. Top with avocado.

This is one of my favorite dinners ever. RJ loves this one as well, so its boy approved ;). You can make the chicken in the crockpot and it’s so easy to throw together after a long day. I am going to post more recipes on here but add me on snapchat (username: RILEYBRAHM) to get a sneak peek at alll my faves! Have a great weekend babes! Xo,


Ps. This is a sneak peek of our kitchen makeover that we’re hopefully finishing this weekend!! Fingers crossed! All we have left to do is the kitchen table!
