Apples and Boobs

Happy November Everyone!

Last weekend we had a great time in Champaign. Our first stop was to check out the Monticello Railway's Haunted Train ride. Which we have been meaning to do for the past few years and haven't. I have to say it was cute and totally worth it if you're under 10. I've seen scarier on the EL (Just sayin'). It's tradition for my kite's family to visit Curtis Orchard every year. Curtis Orchard is known for their apple cider, apple cider slushes, apples, and my non apple favorite kettle corn. This year was my 5th year going, so it's sorta my tradition now. And this girl is ALL for traditions that offer kettle corn. Even though it was a small group this year, we still had a great time. We even rode the hay ride that lasted all of 8 minutes (the kettle corn didn't last as long).

Warning the pictures you're about to witness are NOT Paleo approved. Also, I don't care. It's tradition and you don't mess with tradition or my chance to eat kettle corn. Enjoy.

Before we headed down to Champaign I tackled Grace for Barbells for Boobs. Grace is 30 Clean and Jerks for time. The event was great! I love seeing everyone get together and "enjoy" a workout for a good cause. The box was decked out in pink thanks to Major and everyone came in their finest pink outfit. Yes, men look better in pink OR shirtless (same thing in my book). I upped my weight from last year from 55 pounds to 75 pounds this year. Not too bad, my goal was under 8 minutes and I did it at 7m 54s. I'm very proud of everyone and can't wait to RX it next year. Here's some pics from the event.

Last weeks eats were definitely Paleo. I had some making up to do for being all bad over that weekend. I started the week with making sausage patties, I made the roast that I prepped in my last post, some pumpkin spiced/apple chicken with apples that we brought home from Curtis, Broiled Steak and asparagus, a couple of Cornish hens that were cooked in the crockpot and of course my go-to salads and avocado as sides.

One special night last week my sisters and my nephew came to visit me while my kite was out of town and I decided to Greek it up that day with Greek chicken, Greek green beans(fasolakia), and a Greek Salad. ALL PALEO. It was delicious! Here's some pics of all the eats for the week.
