I LOVE being off on Mondays! I had a wonderful day with my mom and sister! It was like 70 degrees outside!

I also had a great evening with Eric and Alec.

For dinner we had coconut chicken with roasted broccoli and quinoa.

I cooked the chicken in coconut oil and then transferred to the oven for about 10 minutes on 350 degrees to finish the cooking process.

It started to get the perfect brown color so I didn’t want to burn it!

I couldn’t eat all the quinoa. I guess my eyes were bigger than my stomach!

For the broccoli:

I used about 1/2 head of broccoli

Sea salt and garlic grinder


Olive oil

Mix all ingredients in bowl.  Spread onto a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, flipping about halfway through.

Many compliments on the chicken. It was very good. Thank you paleoplan!

After dinner we bought our ornaments for the “24 Days of Togetherness”

Alec had to get the weird-looking mouse. That’s a boy for ya!

We didn’t get this green one. It’s as big as Alec’s head.

We didn’t get this one either! It would probably make the tree tip over!

After dinner I finished off my chai tea for dessert.
