Motivational Monday

Good Morning!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! This weekend was nothing but pure joy for me. On Friday I attended my boyfriend’s company Christmas party and I couldn’t believe how much fun I had. The people there were so welcoming and made everyone feel so comfortable. They had delicious food and games that included prizes.

Then on Saturday we slept in and decided to go on a small adventure to another city. While on Sunday we decided to do the opposite and wake up early to go see Rogue 1. I absolutely loved the movie and felt like they couldn’t have done a better job. We managed to sneak in Trader Joe’s holiday cookies that were so delicious and fit the mood so wonderfully!

It was sad knowing that the weekend came to an end. But then again I’m beyond excited to know that I get to enjoy my three day weekend at home with my boyfriend. He is pretty lucky and has a five day weekend. So he knows that I’m jealous that he gets to stay home longer than I do.

So as I start my Monday I hope that you guys remain as strong as I do and power this the week strong. I know that the days will just fly by and before we know it, it will be Friday!!!

She was on a journey that required her to be fierce. It was called Monday.:

Budget Friendly Meal

Lately I have been obsessed with trying out recipes. This week I decided to try out Trader Joe’s Sriracha BBQ Chicken Skewers.

One thing that I liked about this recipe is that it is easy on the wallet.

The ingredients you need are;

  1. Boneless Chicken Breasts
  2. TJ’s Organic Sriracha & Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce
  3. Pollo Seasoning
  4. Bamboo Skewers (recommended to soak in water)

In the end I customized the way I made the dish. What I did was get the chicken breast and chop them into cubes. Before I put them into a bowl I poke them with a knife so the TJ sauce can go into the chicken. So after putting the cubes of chicken into the bowl I pour in the TJ sauce. I just wanted the chicken lightly covered in the sauce.

After 15 minutes of setting, I get the cubes of chicken and start putting them into the screwer. To add more flavor I sprinkled the Pollo seasoning all around the meat.

Once the meat is cooked throughly you can enjoy dipping it into Sriracha for an extra kick.

I hope you enjoyed my foodie quest this week.

Let me know if you try it out yourself.
