5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

Life will never be the same

1. Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Seasoning Blend

I usually don’t like spicy seasoning because I don’t like it when my tongue feels like it’s on fire or when I’m excessively drooling, but I’m totally down with this mix of chili powder, salt and lime, which has a little bit of heat to it (not so much that I can’t handle it). Apparently, it’s TJ’s take on something called Tajín?

Anyway, I love it. And I’ve been putting it on everything, including the Thai-inspired ground lime chicken I whipped up a few nights ago with chopped cucumber, pineapple and watermelon.

Seriously, this stuff makes even the most mediocre watermelon, of which I’ve had many this year (not a great year for 🍉), taste delish.

2. MAC Half ‘N Half Lipstick

This neutral creamy pink lives in the MAC permanent line, and it has MAC’s Amplified formula, so it’s moderately shiny and majorly pigmented.

3. Doing air squats with a medicine ball

OK…you put the ball under your butt, then lower yourself into a squat until your “cheeks” touch the ball before you rise back up again.

Why would any sane person do this, you might ask?

Good question. 😁

Well, it basically forces you to get loooooooow and drop into a deeper squat than you might otherwise, and every time I do air squats this way, my legs are toast the next day, and I can barely walk up and down two stairs.

It’s simultaneously wonderful and terrible at the same time. LOL!

4. Tuna, Greek yogurt and sweet relish

My new favorite quickie lunch! It takes but a minute to make, and it’s super filling.

Easy, delicious and filling

For a meal, I’ll mix an entire can of drained tuna with half a cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt, a few big scoops of relish, and a generous serving of Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning. Normally, I’ll also have a big bowl of fruit or veggies on the side, and altogether it really fills me up. (You can mix it all together if you want, but I prefer it unmixed.)

And then sometimes for snack time, I’ll just have half a serving instead.

5. Hanging out with Milo

Milo is one of our neighbor’s kitties, and he’s as cute and friendly (and adventurous!) as can be.
