Holy cow! You guys are awesome! Blonde Bostonian was featured as a “Freshly Pressed” blog on word press’ homepage yesterday and I got more traffic than I could have ever imagined! I’m no sports genius, so it was cool to see that you guys really liked yesterday’s post about the Patriots win against the Ravens. Thank you to all my new followers! I look forward to chatting with you guys!

Onward to a few things – food! Dinner last night was pretty great. Lately, I’ve become turned on to the deliciousness that is Brussels sprouts. We never ate them as kids and I discovered them pretty recently when I went out to dinner one night. For dinner, I roasted them with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder along with some sweet potato wedges. After about 30 minutes at 400 degrees, they were soft and yummy.

Some chicken pieces with pesto sauce rounded out the meal with added proteins.

I discovered a new treat at my local Whole Foods this weekend – Terra Chips. I bought this bag of Exotic Harvest chips on a whim. The bag included carrot, blue potato, and kabocha (a Japanese squash similar to a butternut squash). The verdict?

YUMMMMMYYYY! These are awesome. The carrot chips are sweet, which balances well with the saltier blue potato. I wasn’t a huge fan of the kabocha, but it was very good. I love that the ingredient list is short and simple – I know exactly what’s in them. I’m definitely getting these again – I’d love to try another flavor.

 

What’s your favorite snack? Do you like Brussels sprouts? What’s your go-to dinner recipe?

Congrats on being freshly pressed!! And I LOVE roasted brussels sprouts, they are so good! I swear anyone who says they hate them probably hasn’t tried them roasted, its such a better flavor than when they are steamed. And your whole meal looked Delish!
