Charlotte visit post #2

Good evening cupcakes!

Yesterday my boyfriend and I made another trip to Trader Joe's! Some of my favorite things I have gotten there so far are plantain chips, mini avocados, and spicy chicken sausage (all whole30 approved). After our grocery shopping we went to visit a very good friend of ours! This is in uptown Charlotte. I have to get used to calling it uptown because back home we call the city area downtown. I cannot believe how many trees are uptown. It's a beautiful and clean city. 

Today I laid by the pool again. Thank goodness for the pool because when the sun is shining it gets hot and I like to take a little dip in the pool.
Tonight I am making another dinner for Cory and his roommate. I decided to make it a more manly meal by adding some bacon (this brand was not whole30 approved, so I recommend finding one without any added sugar... I know it is hard to find, so you could substitute prosciutto! Here are some mini potatoes I picked up at Trader Joe's. After washing them I sprinkled them with pink Himalayan salt and pepper. I roasted them in the oven at 350 for about 50 minutes. 
I wanted to try to make some almond crusted chicken breasts. I bought some almond meal (flour) at Trader Joe's and it was only $5.99 which is pretty cheap compared to most stores. I added some almond meal to a bowl with garlic powder, Himalayan salt, and pepper. I cracked to eggs in a bowl and whisked them up. I used chicken breast tenders. 
I took a tenderloin and dipped it in the egg and then dipped and sprinkled it with almond meal. Here are all the tenderloins after I breaded them all. 
I cooked up some bacon in a pan with chopped red onion which I will add fresh green beans. 
In a skillet, I fried up some more bacon and red onion (not pictured). I will add the potatoes to the skillet. 
Here's a picture of the green beans while they were cooking with the bacon and red onion. I also added some pepper and pink Himalayan salt. 
I put the breaded chicken onto a skillet with coconut oil to get the tenders brown. After browning them all I put them in the oven at 400 degrees until they were cooked all the way through. 
Here is a picture of the finished potatoes! I think the boys are really going to enjoy this dinner :) 

Later Taters! Stay happy and healthy!
