Let’s see here, another week in the life of Beautiful Disasters!
Monday I shared with you guys some delicious chocolate mousse stuffed yellow cupcakes topped with dark chocolate buttercream. Yummy, yummy, yummy little guys right here! I visited U of I last weekend as you may have read in my last week in review post and I brought some for her boyfriend, his room mates, and one her bestest friends, Lizzy (who is incredibly nice by the way!). Turns out they loved them, so these would have been perfect for “Fat Tuesday” if any of you gave up treats for Lent, if you don’t happen to do Lent then by all means-make these bad boys!!
Tuesday was “Fat Tuesday”!!!! HOLLA! Night before Lent starts. In my house, that is code for ice cream dinner. Yum, yum, yum.
Wednesday I showed you guys the scrumptious Almond Joy/Mounds inspired ice cream pie I made for my Dad’s birthday! It was also the first day of Lent…40 days until I will be able to have treats again :( But hey, spring break is right smack dab in the middle so at least my family and I will have some nice beach bods!
Thursday I had a pretty average day..honestly nothing too exciting. We did have our pre-season meeting for soccer, where we discussed that next week we are still currently planning on trying out outside. In 30 degree weather. There is currently about 5 inches of snow on the ground.
Friday I shared with you guys some healthy baked chicken tenders. Hopefully I will continue going outside of my comfort zone by posting more savory recipes, my ratio of dessert recipes to “real food” recipes is insane…somewhat like 1092380 to 2. But hey now it’s more like 1092380 to 3! Making progress ;)
Random Fact of the Day: If you keep a goldfish in a dark room, it will eventually turn white.
