Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potato

Just made this & posted on Instagram. Had a few interested in this so decided to post! Make sure you follow me on IG, if you don't already, my username is @meneal. 

Serves: One

Ingredients Needed:
1 large potato
2 T. olive oil
1 t. salt
Aluminum foil
1 boneless skinless chicken breast 
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
2 T. butter 
1 T. sour cream 
1/4 cup buffalo sauce
1 scallion
2-4 T. ranch (I made mine from a packet.)
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Take potato & wrap in aluminum foil with olive oil and salt. Bake for 45 mins to an hour.

Meanwhile, boil chicken until it reaches 165 degrees internally & is fully cooked. 
Shred & coat with buffalo sauce. 

Take insides of potato & mix with cheddar cheese, butter, sour cream and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Stuff potato mix back inside baked potato skin. Top with buffalo chicken, extra cheese, ranch, & chopped green onion. Enjoy!

Bumpdate: Week 19

Week 19

Gender: It's a Boy! 

Weight Gain/Loss: +8

Baby's Growth: Our sweet little bear is about 11 oz. & 
for the last two appointments he has been breach. 
Hopefully he will move but it isn't looking like it.

Movement: I starting feeling the baby kick around September 18...

Food Cravings: Lemonade, Grapefruit, Guacamole & Fresh Veggies with Ranch!

How I'm Feeling: I feel great! A little sluggish in the mornings & 
sometimes in the afternoon but over I feel amazing! 

Anything Making You Queasy/Sick: Not really..  

Sleeping: Just depends on the night. Here lately it hasn't been the best sleep.

Have You Started To Show Yet: Definitely showing! 

Maternity Clothes: Definitely in maternity clothes.. 
Wearing some non-maternity leggings, shirts 
& dresses but blue jeans are maternity! 

Stretchmarks: No way! 

Belly Button In/Out: In...

Workouts: I haven't gotten in a workout routine yet 
but planning on getting back to my yoga class on Thursday! 

Favorite Moment This Week: Having my mom here to visit 
& seeing my sweet baby at my doctors appointment. 

We are also about half way through decorating the nursery. 
My mom & hubs painted the nursery, set up the crib & re-did the closet this past weekend. 
I am loving it! Trying to get our nursery finished as soon as possible with school,
Army training, holiday travel & my hubs being on a "business trip" the whole month of January,
getting things done as possible is going to be key for this pregnancy! 

Looking Forward To: Starting our birthing classes on Thursday evening,
my husbands birthday next week & going to the fair. 
Omg!! So excited about fair food. 
Every pregnant woman's dream, right?!
