Our weekend was great! We had a work dinner for Josh on Friday, taught step Saturday and ran errands, saw Avatar in 3D Saturday night (movie itself was very cool, but didn't like/agree with half of the movies message), taught Body Pump Sunday and then had a few friends over for the super bowl Sunday night.
I also made a batch of Averie's Raw Protein Bars on Sunday. They are amazing!!!!
I tried to make my Super Bowl Spread a little healthier, but still delicious.
I made up this AMAZING sweet and spicy turkey chili (it has pineapple in it and my friends/family gave it rave reviews (I obviously skipped out due to the meat;)):
I served some optional toppings along side the chili, including jalapenos, light sour cream, and 2% milk shredded cheese.
I also made up some fruit and fruit dip (whipped topping + 1 single serving fruit yogurt). It was the hit of the party:
I also laid out some pita chips, tortilla chips and veggies with salsa and Broccoli Hut's awesome artichoke hummus:
and Rhodey Girl's Zaatar Bread with marinara sauce (also a huge hit):
For dessert, big oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate pieces, and black bean brownies (which were just ok):
Our wonderful friends Bryan and Mandi also brought over some sausage balls that everyone loved.
