Good Morning! Here are your three treats for the day:
I’m opening a shop with OpenSky!
My shop will open on August 10th and I am so excited! OpenSky is a community of shopkeepers with tons of products that I am able to recommend to you.
Like my foam roller! Hows this for an action shot? 🙂
I can’t wait to show you the rest of the products in my OpenSky store, but you’ll have to wait until next week! OpenSky has a very user-friendly website and the return policy is the best. I decided to partner with OpenSky to pass along product favorites, which you can get right here through the blog. Please let me know if there are any products on the blog that you’d like available in my shop.
I’ll announce next week when my shop will actually be open, then you can take a look and see what I’ve got!
Please check out Cake Wrecks. This is a hilarious blog with pics of hideous cakes, cookies and treats. Some of them are pretty awful but they also have some pics of really beautiful cakes. I thought Batman here was hilarious though. I mean, how pathetic is that frosting? I found this blog by looking at Wendy’s blog Seriously Sassy. Do you like to look at blogrolls? I do because I love to find new blogs!
I read Angela’s blog a few days ago which featured her Mexican Pie. Wow, did that look good or what??? I made it myself with a few changes, but it turned out great:
Mexican Tortilla Pie
1 (15 ounce) cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup salsa, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (15 ounce) can refried beans
5(8 inch) flour tortillas
½ cup shredded soy cheese
Enchilada sauce (I used for top layer)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the pinto beans, garlic and ½ cup salsa in one bowl. Mix refried beans with ½ cup salsa in another bowl. Lay down 1 tortilla in a pie pan coated with nonstick spray. Top tortilla with a layer of the pinto bean mixture and a sprinkle of soy cheese. Top with another tortilla, followed by the refried bean mixture and a sprinkle of soy cheese. Continue this rotation until tortillas are used up. Pour ½ cup of enchilada sauce (or more!) on top of the last tortilla and finish with the rest of the soy cheese. Bake for 25 minutes.
I could not believe how delicious this was, and J gave it a big thumbs up – and I don’t think he even noticed it was all beans and no meat!
I’m sure the leftovers I’m having for lunch today will be spectacular as well. Thanks Angela for a great recipe!
So there you have it. Three treats.
Tonight: TurboFire HIIT and the season premiere of Real Housewives of DC!
Questions of the day:
Is there a blog you recently found that you love? Do you have a blog? I’d like to update my blogroll again, please leave me a comment if you’d like to be included!
Do you like Mexican food? What is your favorite dish?
I like going through other people’s blogrolls, too. And, like Tina, I scroll through comments and click on those sometimes, too. I just started blogging, so I’ve been checking out lots of different blogs, figuring out whose I like and what I want mine to be like. Stop by sometime and check it out – http://mostlyfitmom.wordpress.com.
My favourite blog is runlikeamotherbook.com. Every week they feature the blog of a running mom, so I always check those out, too. There are some really inspiring reads out there! I recently subscribed to yours – honestly can’t remember how I came across it; probably through comments you posted somewhere – and am definitely entertained and inspired!
You have touched upon 2 things I LOVE in this post:
-Foam roller: the best thing to happen to sore muscles since the massage.
-Cake Wrecks: when I first discovered it I was crying and trying desperately not to completely fall apart from laughter in my cubicle. One of the funniest websites I’ve ever seen!
I love blogrolling 🙂 If you feel so inclined you can add my little newbie: 40apples.wordpress.com
A recent blog discovery: loveveggiesandyoga.com – I know it’s pretty well-known out there, but I find it so interesting reading about her body building; and her vegan desserts look amazing!
Thanks so much for the shout-out, Miss Holly!! ❤ You're the BESTEST and again, I'm so happy we've "met" in the blogosphere!
Mexican. I'm a fan. Gonna try that recipe, fo sho.
Glad you're enjoying Cake Wrecks! It cracks me up every single day!
I totally look at Blog Rolls and love when someone new finds mine because most often, I end up loving their blog as well. (Need to update my own blog roll, stat!).
I LOVE Mexi food. I may be IN-LOVE with it. I think a good quesadilla can go a long way as long as the cheese is gooey, veggies plentiful, and salsa in abundance. I’ve been having fun making Mexi pastas as of late. They are a win-win situation!
Hmmm….when it comes to Mexican food, I am a fajitas and guac girl all the way. Love it.
I would love to get a shout out on your blog roll since you’re asking. 🙂 Your blog is one of my faves and I also really like http://www.skinnyrunner.wordpress.com. She is really funny and a crazy good runner.
