Inspired By Chick-fil-A

Happy Wednesday! We’re one day closer to the weekend friends. Have a great day πŸ™‚


Alex and I were so slow to get out of bed yesterday morning. I told him that it’s sometimes harder for me to wake up on Tuesday mornings than it is on Monday mornings for whatever reason. Luckily I got ready pretty quickly so I could try a new breakfast recipe. I won’t keep it a secret and will tell you I was inspired by Chick-fil-A. When I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday, an add popped up about their breakfast scramble burritos and bowls. It looked good so I made my own at home! I cut up a potato to kind of be like hashbrowns, cooked two breakfast sausages, and scrambled an egg. I threw it all in a bowl with Mexican cheese, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. It was good!

During lunch, I checked my email at work and received awful news. If you didn’t know I am so in love with Chip and Joanna Gaines. They broke the news that the fifth season of “Fixer Upper”, a.k.a the best show on HGTV, will be the last season of it. I truly think it was a tough decision for them because Chip seems like he could become emotional in the video. Given the success of the show and how it has really changed their life and business, I have a lot of respect for them as they walk away to focus on their family. Something tells me they will be back with a new project soon, and I mean in addition to their home line at Target.


I got home from work and headed out on my run for the day. My workout was speed work with a mile warm up and cool down. It felt really good and was just the type of hard workout I needed. 4 miles total including a mile warm up and cool down.


I got home, showered and settled on the couch to continue reading my book. If you’ve heard of the movieΒ “Lion”Β that came out earlier this year then you may have heard of the bookΒ “A Long Way Home”. It’s a memoir by Saroo Brierley about his ordeal as a five year old in India. He was from a small village and fell asleep on a train while with his brother looking for food or money at a train station. The train takes him to Calcutta and he is later adopted by a family in Australia. I haven’t seen the movie but I know how it ends since my aunt ruined it for me lol. Even though it’s a memoir, it is told in a story and I haven’t found any of it boring like I find sometimes happens with nonfiction books.


For dinner, we heated up a bunch of leftovers. I threw some rice, Italian sausage and roasted potatoes in a bowl to eat. Not the best meal but it filled me up. Afterwards, I got right back to reading. Alex and I hung out and had a really chill night which was perfect. We started an episode of “Arrested Development” and turned it off about halfway through. The last season of it is not as good as the others and we might not even finish the series. Netflix just messed it up a little and it probably could’ve ended when it originally did years ago. We chatted a bit on the couch then crawled into bed.

Question of the day: What’s your favorite meal at a restaurant to recreate at home?

  1. Nice job on your run!
    I’m also devastated about the Fixer Upper news :((( but I think Chip, Joanna, and their family deserve nothing but happiness!
    We love to make hibachi at home – so easy and delicious!
    Enjoy your day πŸ™‚


  2. I’ve never been to a chick-fil-a! they just built one near me, but it doesn’t seem like a very gluten-free friendly place.
    I love re-creating chipotle food! salad bowls and tacos are my go-to:)


    1. I’m not sure how gluten friendly Chick-fil-A is! They do have really good milkshakes, I recommend the peppermint one around Christmas.

      It’s funny you mention tacos because that’w what I’m making for dinner tonight. Have a great day πŸ™‚


  3. I totally agree – waking up on Tuesdays is soo hard. Great job on your run πŸ™‚

    I love recreating sweetgreen salads! Their signature salads always give me inspiration for what to include in mine.

    Have a great hump day!


  4. The ingredients in the breakfast scramble all sound delicious! I love getting inspiration from restaurant dishes. Hope you’re having a great week!


  5. The story of Saroo is incredible and I bawled reading new stories about him. I know many people liked the movie Lion, but I think it’s just because the real story is so compelling. I thought the movie was a sappy and the story line and the characters weren’t well done. I saw the movie on a plane and thought it was fine for that, but I wouldn’t recommend the movie otherwise.


    1. Thank you for sharing that! I love the book so far and can see why so many people enjoyed the movie. I’m not sure if I’ll watch the movie since I tend to like the book version more than the movie version.

      I hope you are having a great day πŸ™‚


  6. That breakfast sounds delicious! I would love to recreate something like that at home. I have to say that I love any kind of breakfast that involves salsa and something hearty, lol, but what can I say…I live in Arizona. πŸ˜‰ I am sad that Fixer Upper is ending also! Such a great show.


    1. Recreate it! It was so simple! I honestly might try to make it again in the morning hehe. I’m picky so I’ve never tried salsa for breakfast. Is it a must try in your opinion?
      I seriously love Fixer Upper and I must visit Waco to see the Silos.

      I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday πŸ™‚

      1. When I find something I like, I totally make it multiple times, so I can completely relate! Well, I absolutely LOVE salsa, so I would say yes, but I know that it’s a southwest thing too. I love salsa on scrambled eggs. πŸ˜‰ You too, thanks!
