Busy, busy, busy...that's how I feel all the time these days. I'm trying to enjoy the wedding planning process, but some days I look at that wedding to-do list and I feel overwhelmed. This weekend is feeling pretty packed full of more to-dos. I have to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy the moments.
Anyways, I obviously love cooking, but when my fiance said he would grill tonight I admit I was very happy. Not having to spend time cooking dinner gave me more time to catch up on the aforementioned todos. I enjoyed two grilled veggie burgers, a sweet potato, and a grilled bell pepper plus one non-alcoholic beer for dinner. Very satisfying since we haven't grilled all winter! Even better not having to cook any of it!
However, I was having major munchies before dinner so I whipped up this pumpkin smoothie. I also wanted it to be crunchy because I was craving some texture so I added cereal for that. It really hit the spot!
