On our way { Chicago }

by Healthy Diva on December 27, 2011

 

Mike and I are on our merry little way to Chicago this morning, and probably already on our journey when you are reading this, since I pre-wrote this post to publish. We are off for a little 3 day getaway, we have been going to Chicago every year after christmas since we have been together, its a little tradition we have. I am excited as always!

What do you eat for dinner when you have nothing in the house and are going out of town?

Turkey Tacos!  I actually had turkey meat to make turkey chili with and never made, so we made tacos with it instead. We didn’t want to waste it, so it worked out this way  icon biggrin On our way { Chicago }

Remember the desserts I made for christmas eve?

We brought the desserts to my parents house, but did not even have any that night! I made sure to sneak some home for us, and we enjoyed some last night. Im officially overdosed on sweets for now, well maybe until tomorrow, Chicago has way too many sweet treats for me to enjoy!

I made those peanut butter truffles too – all gone now sadly, but they were amazing!! :-D I was a bit worried my family wouldn’t like them (as Liam doesn’t like the pb-choc combo so it skews my perspective I guess!) but they were the most popular of all the treats I made…so good!

I hope you and Mike have a fantastic trip, sounds like a lovely tradition! :)

Always so important to travel with the protein powder! Lol I always have mine in a sandwich bag in my carry on :). However, I have to start eating more protein when I can due to the whole vegetarian thang (my naturopath is really on me about protein) so I’d love to know more tips and tricks you have for including protein in your food as I know you try to have it at every meal! You should do a post ;) – you know, just for me hahahaha :)
