Crockpot chicken, Mellow Mushroom

How was your weekend? Mine has been so sweet...I am definitely having the Sunday night blues (I don't wantttt to go to work tomorrow). Before I even get to the weekend, I just wanted to direct you to this awesome crock pot recipe for Chicken and Corn Chili. I made this earlier this week and Josh LOVED it.



Onto the weekend:


Friday: Taught Body Attack, went out to dinner at King Street Grille with Josh, Jenny (Josh's sister), and our friend Jeremy, movie at home


Saturday: Taught Body Step, went food shopping with Jenny, went to the beach with Josh, Jenny and Jeremy, cleaned up the house a bit, went to dinner at Mellow Mushroom in Mount Pleasant. We sat in their new outdoor area and listened to live music. The weather was perfect. We got almost the exact same things as last time. The menu:


Josh and his sis:

Jenny and I (excuse the semi wet hair):

Hummus App (toasty and delicious):
Create my own salad:


Jenny's Greek Salad:


Josh's pizza (pepperoni and artichoke):

Sunday: Got up and went for a 3.75 mile run with Jenny. We ran to the gym and then took Body Pump. It was an amazing workout! Did lots of house work and then ran out for a little shopping with Jenny. Tonight we had Esi's shrimp for dinner (delicious again!).
How was your weekend?

Congratulations to both Heather and Meghann on their races!!!!!!!!!!

I also get the Sunday blues! I think it's because I know there's a whole 5 days before I can party and relax again!

I LOVE mellow mushroom! Except they don't have any in California sadly! Their calzones are bombdiggity!!!

LOVE Mellow Mushroom! I've heard rave reviews about their hummus but never tried it for myself. Their pizza crust is killer though--that's the whole reason I go!

WOW, I happy for you...I can see that you had a wonderful time...in regards to Monday, I know what you are talking about :-(

You are not going to believe, I have a brand new crockpot and never used...you inspired me to have a "grand opening"...thanks!

teresa said...

I love the look of that pizza, looks like a good time!

Dawn said...

that pizza, oh that pizza. I would eat that whole thing right up. I always go out with wet hair, I hate blow drying it, keeps me cooler in the summer too.

Chef Jeena said...

Love your new look Erica. :-)

Lovely food pics looks liek you had a great time.

The Blonde Duck said...

I can't believe ya'll went to a pizza place and you didn't get pizza! Total discipline!

Sweetie Pie said...

What a fun weekend!! The platter of hummus looks awesome, and so does the chili. YUM!

I had a weekend that was both busy and relaxing. I guess that's the best mix! I had some tasty food, hung out with some good friends and got to spend quality time with my favorite dog. It was good, but too short!

Diana said...

Chili looks delish! Glad you had such a fun weekend! Mine was nice too - all-day 10 mile hike yesterday, and went to see Up on Friday night. I think you and Josh would love it - super cute!

mtbcy said...

Thanks for the encouragement :) I am definitely going to give the chicken chili a try- now that I've reunited with my crock pot! Did you add some peas?

Alison said...

Yummy pizza! But I think the chili looks even better.

bhealthier said...

I liked your semi-wet hair!

Sounds like you had a great weekend!
