Happy Independence Day Friends! Belated, of course, in my true fashion.
Also true to fashion, we had some people over yesterday to celebrate America and freedom and hot dogs. I planned my entire week knowing that there was a hump-day BBQ coming my way with plenty of beer and chips and things that I would take some major focus to avoid. But wouldn’t you know, I have the best friends around. Please pay attention to the amount of fruit that people brought.
That jicama (I know, not a fruit) really saved me in times of chips.
I also fell into the bowl that my friend, Anjali brought which contained this salad. I knew I loved chickpeas and have made another chickpea recipe of Anjali’s in the past, but yesterday I learned I like summer squash which I have felt pretty blechy about in the past. I am now obsessed with this salad.
Also this happened.
Something my friend, Beth called Chocolate Brownie Pudding. I have no words. I was able to keep it in my pants though and not eat the whole thing by myself. I get by with a little help from my friends after all.
Lastly, I found this earlier in the week and thought it worthy of sharing. From A Weight Lifted, let’s declare our independence from dieting.
Happy 4th (or 5th) y’all!
