Easy 6 Ingredient BBQ Chicken Wraps
Makes 4 Wraps
4 Burrito sized tortillas or wraps
2 cups cooked chicken – shredded or diced mixed with your favorite BBQ sauce
BBQ sauce to mix with the chicken ( I used about 2/3 cup, but personal preference to how much sauce you like!)
1 cup cheddar cheese – chopped or shredded
2 bell peppers – chopped
1 cup romaine or spinach – cut into strips
In a small bowl, mix the cooked chicken with BBQ sauce.
Place ½ cup of BBQ chicken in a line on the tortilla.
Top with ¼ cup cheddar cheese.
Layer roughly 1/3 cup chopped bell peppers and 1/4 cup romaine or spinach on top.
Roll up the wrap, cut in half and enjoy!
Note: Depending on the size of the bell peppers you might have more or less than 1/3 cup per wrap, so just equally divide the chopped bell peppers into four servings .
Been thinking about the direction I want my life to go to and my past. Ive been feeling curious if anyone has felt the same.
I am DIFFERENT from where I was 5 years ago. I think before I talk and am more respectful to those around me.
Friendships CHANGE. It is inevitable. I have been struggling with not beating myself up for not making old friendships a constant priority. TRUE friends can pick up where they left off and we will reconnect when we can.
I am RESILIENT. A bad day at work or a rough day with the baby does not get to me anymore. I have a support system of friends, family, and coping mechanisms to help take a step back.
I feel GRATEFUL for every single day. Not everyday is promised and I have been doing the best I can to cherish the day to day, even if there is not AMAZING things happening every day.
SO, I challenge you to consider these 4 things:
Accept that with time we are DIFFERENT than who we once were and that is NOT a bad thing.
Friendships may CHANGE but true friendships will have flexibility.
Be RESILIENT and do not sweat the small stuff. This too does and shall pass.
GRATEFULNESS helps keep you centered. Try to make today the best day it can be.
What helps center you? How do you cope with rough days? Thoughts of friendships changing with time or phases of life? I would love to hear from you.

…that offered to hold my baby while I ate, thank you. I had told you he had colic. You said I still needed a break.
To the woman at the bridal shower, thank you for asking to hold the baby a second time considering the first time I said, “I’m fine” but was actually sleep deprived and exhausted. You knew I was pretending to have it covered. I’m glad you reasked and I said yes. You did calm him down so well and I was able to eat and drink some water.
To the woman at the bridal shower, who I didn’t know before that day and whose name I cannot even remember, thank you. I went to the bridal shower with my two month old and was so nervous he was going to be loud and take attention away from my best friend who was getting married.
To the woman at the bridal shower, you don’t even know how a simple gesture made such a big impact and I will always remember. Thank you.
To the woman at the bridal shower, thank you for lending a hand to someone who was a new mom and this was her first time around more than a few family members. I was nervous going into that day but you made me feel comfortable and powerful.
I will never how you reassured me so effortlessly that I was doing well and why you were so sweet and kind to help someone you didn’t know. I hope I can be this woman to another mother. Another stranger or another friend that didn’t know she needed help. This is what it is all about. Supporting one another and lifting each other up. ❤

This is my first post of a series of weekly thoughts. I’m interested to hear if anyone has thought about these things as well. Feel free to comment, I’d love to start a conversation! ❤
I just have been feeling so warm and fuzzy from you all. Thank you for supporting me and thank you for supporting each other!
The sun is shining bright, birds are chirpping, it’s another beautiful summer day!
Today’s thought is this: We choose our own adventure and outlook.
I once heard someone complain about the birds chirping in the morning and how they hated that they wake them up. I feel so different! Note, I can sleep through a thunderstorm no problem. BUT regardless I LOVE hearing those birds chirp first thing in the morning and was amazed how the same thing that brings me joy was something that they disliked.
Is today going to be a good day? Do you want it to be? Or do you want to sulk about something instead? Not everyday can be the best day of your life of course but I challenge you to be mindful of one day and a time. Not just working for the weekend, enjoying something each and every day. Maybe it’s a walk after work or early morning coffee before work and reading a good book. Or maybe it’s calling a friend to catch up or spending quality time with your significant other, family, or a close friend. Or journalling or organizing something. What gives you peace and recharges you?
All the best,
I’ll leave you with a recent bathroom selfie <3, no shame
This is one of my favorite recipes. My mom actually introduced me to quinoa and making salads with it AND I am forever grateful for this. I have made this salad with lots of combinations. Pick your favorite vegetables, about 2 cups and add it to this salad. My current favorite combination is broccoli, bell pepper, and red onion. I like to use feta but you can also use mozzarella or parmesan if desired.
First gather your salad ingredients
Then combine ingredients and mix your dressing together (olive oil and spices).
Toss ingredients together and enjoy!
Vegetable Quinoa Salad
4 cups romaine, baby spinach, or mixed greens
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 cup broccoli
¼ cup red or white onion
½ cup feta
2.5 Tbsp olive oil
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp basil
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic powder
Combine the greens with quinoa, bell pepper, broccoli, onion and feta.
In a separate small dish, mix the olive oil, oregano, basil, salt and garlic powder until well combined.
Toss salad with dressing and then enjoy!
Sound good? Have quinoa in a salad before or looking forward to trying it? Let me know, would love to hear from you! Comment below!
Happy cooking! ❤ Hope

I’m Hope. I love to cook DELICIOUS food and spend time crafting, exploring the outdoors, taking pictures, and enjoying time with friends and family. Check out the rest of the blog to navigate through easy and healthy recipes, along with motherhood and parenting content.
So, topic today is MEAL PLANNING. Ugh. I know, sounds boring.
BUT, it doesn’t have to BE and it does not have to be hard. It is a game changer with helping organize meals for the week so you don’t get in the rut of staring at the pantry or in the refrigerator, hoping something pops out.
I use a few easy tricks to plan meals and I wanted to share them with you.
Let’s get to it.
Designate one day a week to consistently plan meals/grocery lists. When you get in the habit of planning meals once weekly, it becomes second nature. I usually spend 10-20 minutes planning the meals and making a grocery list on Saturday and then grocery shop on Sunday. Easy peasy.
Plan 5-6 meals to make for dinners for the week and options for lunches
I personally prefer to have 5 weekday dinners set but not necessarily the day, depending on what we are craving that day.
I’ve learned to plan for what we typically eat, just so we don’t waste produce. For us, I plan on having enough for lunches and 5-6 dinners and extra frozen food in case we stay in, but we like to have flexibility if we eat with friends or family or go out to eat.
I usually cook a big meal on Sunday afternoon or evening, which always has left overs to start the week with. I also typically also try to make extra roasted vegetables or have vegetables ready for salads and a big pot of lentils, quinoa or pasta that can be thrown together for a quick meal or eaten as lunch.
I keep the meals varied – every week I try to include one of these types of dishes:
One night I’ll make a Mexican dish – tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, nachos, or quesadillas
One night I’ll make an Italian dish – vegetarian lasagna, linguine with vegetables, spaghetti, chicken parmesan, baked pasta, fetticini alfredo
One night I’ll make an easy chicken dish – oven baked chicken, breaded chicken, barbeque chicken, chicken wings etc
One night I’ll make a not otherwise categorized dish that are just our favorite random dishes– loaded baked potato bar, grilled salmon, salad bar, some type of sandwich (turkey burgers/ veggies burgers/ grilled cheese etc) a tasty ethnic dish (pad thai, ramen, sushi etc) or a second Mexican or Italian dish if we are craving that and I have the supplies.
Homemade pizza or frozen pizza (yes, frozen pizza is a GREAT go to after a long day at work and I have NO shame admitting that! I like California pizza kitchen, Newman’s own, and also the simple truth brand of pizzas). It is also so quick to use fast rising yeast or pizza yeast and make from scratch, layer with sauce, mozzarella and your favorite toppings.
During the fall and winter, I do soup usually once a week as well but not as often in the summer
If you haven’t already, I suggest investing in a good amount of glass or microwave safe containers and locate their lids for easy food prep. It makes all the difference!
