In 1963 when Lucky Charms first came there were green clovers, pink hearts, orange stars, and yellow moon marbits. There have been numerous limited edition marbits since their release including a whale and crystal balls. Since 1963 only the pink heart remains from the original mar bit lineup.Lucky Charms Popcorn | Popcorn & ChocolateJust thought I would share some Lucky Charms factoids with you all.

What We Ate 5/17/15 – 5/23/15

Woo what a week! Is it just me or has anyone else had a crazy busy week?? And with our move coming up shortly things are only going to get busier and busier. Plus where did May go? I thought it was still April.. Okay, okay enough complaints from me. Even though this week was hectic we still managed to throw together some super delicious and healthy meals. Okay, maybe Rose was able to throw together most of the meals, but I was able to eat and enjoy them!

cereal

Sunday: Cereal! We drove back from Hanover, NH this day and decided to do our grocery shop without stopping at home. We both were pretty exhausted and craving something simple and sweet so we put away all our nice fresh veggies and fruit and opted for a big bowl of cereal instead. Some days you just have to!

Veggie burger Mango cucumber salsa

Monday: Veggie burgers with cucumber mango salsa. We are currently trying to clean out our freezer, which means we will be eating even more veggie burgers than we normally do. I ain’t complaining! We made this cucumber and mango salsa as a side.

Spring rolls

Tuesday: Thai Summer Rolls. We had these last week and were dying to have them again so we used our leftover rice papers to make up another batch. Yum yum yum!

Brussel sprout taco IMG_1513

Wednesday: Kale and brussels sprout tacos. Rose graciously whipped these up for us and they came out excellent. Definitely will be making these again!

Be good

Thursday: I was working late so Rose met me for a take out dinner at work. We had B.good and it hit the spot. We each got salads and then shared some sweet potato fries.

Friday: Leftover kale and brussels sprout tacos. yumm!

Pizza

Saturday: Pizza night! We had this pizza in the freezer taking up so much space for the past few months and we finally got around to making it. It had sausage, pepperoni, peppers, and onions. We both had salads on the side as well. Love frozen pizzas!
