weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

The Monday after the time change is a real struggle, am I right?? I had to tell my body that no it wasn’t 330am it was really 430 and I need to get the hell up and get that work out in!!! Just a quick 20 minute HITT for me today, as anything else would have just been cruel and unusual punishment.

This weekend was spent cleaning and organizing, eating Mexican food, Hulu and Netflixing, meal planning and grocery shopping, and putting Besties do Bham back together again.

I really messed up when I downloaded a new theme for the site and I had to have Chris dig me out of my mess. One he got it looking like a blog again, I took it over and started the actual design. It has a lot of work left, but at least we can start posting in the mean time!!! Β Just in time too, as two new restaurants are opening this week, and two others have opened recently! Laura and I have lots of eating to do!!!

Speaking of eating, I made a sweet potato skillet hash on Saturday that was nothing short of amazing. You cook two sweet potatoes either by baking them or microwaving them for a few minutes until they are soft.

Cut up some bacon and cook it in a skillet until mostly done, add onion and cook for five minutes. Add your potatoes and cook for five minutes. Make holes and drop in some eggs, cover and cook five more minutes. Cut up some green onion and boom bang delicious!



This recipe got me to eat eggs again, and guys that is huge. I was on an egg strike for months because I go through phases where I hate them. I even managed to do an entire Whole 30 without them. That takes dedication, let me tell you.

In other food happenings, I made gnocchi last night! It went well with a dose of Vampire Diaries and a side of The Originals!


Have you guys ever watched The League? Chris’s friend got him in to it and he has been binging the shit out of it. It’s pretty terrible and none of the episodes really have a point to them exactly….but I have to admit it is pretty damn funny and I have found myself paying attention more when it is on.

I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend!!! Let’s kick some Monday ass!

    I had a similar sweet potato skillet with sausage at a brewery, yours looks even better and I bet delish coming from kitchen Nadine’s!! Ugh this time change is kicking my butt and a dark drive to work again didn’t help. Coffee please and cheers to a great week adjusting, lol.

    I ate breakfast before I read your post this morning, bam I have beaten your food pictures! Ha

    I laid in bed extra long on Sunday morning to make up for the time change thing and so far today I’m feeling like I need a nap which is pretty normal for a Monday.

    Nadine you are a star! How do you get up at 4:30 to work out? That is dedication! PS – Love the changes to the blog!

  • Reply Laura March 14, 2016 at 10:39 am

    That hash looks incredible!! And that gnocchi! I’m glad you got some good food in this weekend! Daylights saving is the worse — I hate it!!!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo March 14, 2016 at 10:43 am

    I just got a recipe on my weekly emeals that is similar to that one… I cant wait to try it!
    Oh man, how I want to punch DST in the face!!!

    Watching The League is like watching vulgar, hilarious, organized chaos.

    You made it through the Whole30 with no eggs? HOW DID I MISS THIS??? That is an amazing accomplishment.

  • Reply kristen March 14, 2016 at 11:35 am

    oh that sweet potato meal looks amazing! i am kind of on an egg strike as well, we ate them so often a couple years ago that i seriously burned out. i had a small portion of KC’s scrambled eggs the other day so perhaps i am on my way back as well haha. i love eggs like that – in your picture – but KC only eats scrambled. weirdo.
    getting up today was hard! i struggled to get up at 6 because it felt like 5, but you’re just a badass!

  • Reply Tania // Run to Radiance March 14, 2016 at 12:12 pm

    Wow, glad eggs are back in! Whole 30 without them would be tough, good job! πŸ˜› I went through a weird phase with eggs too..they just tasted weird and the concept was gross!

  • Reply Tricia Coniglio March 14, 2016 at 12:25 pm

    That sweet potato skillet looks absolutely amazing! I have not been eating a lot of eggs either. I kinda got burned out on them and I still like them but I don’t love them enough to eat them every day. This skillet just may change my life!
    And that gnocchi! I’ve never made that and may have to add it on the list of things to try.

    usually, DST doesn’t really bother me but man, this sunday i was struggling. kayla has been waking at night from a lingering cough, plus the time change plus a really hard muay thai session….i was wiped by 930pm but my body was still thinking it was 830pm.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders March 14, 2016 at 1:26 pm

    I really thought that with the time change going to bed would be easier last night, but nope I slept terribly and I didn’t want to wake up for a workout this morning at all! It sounds like you had a very productive weekend filled with lots of amazing food, like usual! My husband got me sucked into The League, and we loved watching it when we were playing Fantasy. You’re 100% right though that there really is no point to the episodes at all.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista March 14, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    That skillet looks delish! And look at you getting up super early to get that workout in, get it gurlie! And I’m in awe of your website design skills, even if Chris had to rescue you, it’s amazing that you are able to tackle such a project! As much as I love that we get an extra hour of light in the evenings now, the struggle in the mornings is definitely for real!

    Usually the time change doesn’t mess me up too much, but good lawd. I’m a wreck from it this year haha- Idk what’s going on but I’m over it πŸ˜‰ That sweet potato skillet hash looks SO FREAKING GOOD. I wish it was on my desk right now! lol

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots March 14, 2016 at 2:37 pm

    I can’t believe you go on egg strikes too! Everyone acts like I’m such a weirdo that I hate eggs like 9 months out of the year, but I knew I wasn’t alone! Lol

  • Reply Amy March 14, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    I have made that skillet before and it is amazing!!! Mmmm… Gnocchi!!! Dammit, I am hungry!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 14, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    Same thing happened to me when I was trying to redesign my site and I almost bombed the whole site! My heart almost stopped working. Glad you got it fixed. The sweet potato hash sounds amazing!

  • Reply Carly March 14, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    4:30 to work out? You are crazy! haha no way I’d be able to do that. I can’t lie though, I’m laughing a little at all the posts talking about DST today. Try jumping 17 hours haha! I honestly have trouble remember what day it is.

  • Reply Lindsay March 14, 2016 at 6:57 pm

    Can’t wait to see the new blog! That sweet potato hash looks AMAZING. I have the same feelings for eggs… I eat them during the week, but almost gag if I have to eat them on the weekend. Amazing that you made it through Whole 30 without them!

  • Reply Jenna March 14, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    Mmm… gnocchi… I need to make some of my chicken & gnocchi soup soon, but then I also need to make some of my tortellini soup soon, too. I’m in a soup kinda mood.

  • Reply Emelia March 14, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    That e-card is seriously hilarious, I lol’ed.. That hash looks so delicious, YUM! Hope you have a good week!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth March 15, 2016 at 8:46 am

    Oh gnocchi……seriously the best food on the planet. You are so lucky that Chris can help you with the blog, I have learned my lesson of no more playing with the design, it didn’t end up so well for me πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait to catch up on the Originals!

  • Reply Dani March 15, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    Look at you cooking up a storm! Love it. I need that sweet potato/egg concoction in my mouth ASAP! Also, that is the most perfect e-card; DST can suck it.
