They called for rain today but so far so good! I slept in a wee bit this morning which is such a nice weekend treat. I wasn't too hungry when I did get out of bed so I decided to make another batch of Banana Rhubarb Muffins so I could bring some out to the farm. After all, my MIL is the one who supplied me with the bananas and rhubarb so I thought it only fitting to bring some of it back in a different form! :) The muffins were featured this morning over at Oh She Glows, so please click on the link above for the recipe.
I finally got hungry about 9 and got started on my oats.
-1 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt
-dried goji berries
-hulled hemp seeds
A smart, tasty way to get my fruits into me first thing! We loaded up and went out to the farm for a visit. I snacked on a cookie and a few chocolates while out there. My FIL really enjoyed the muffins and they both got a hoot out of the "returned" food!
We arrived home by "lunch time" but I wasn't at all hungry so I got to work in the front gardens again thinking to beat the rain. My back complained less than I thought it would, but it still wasn't too happy with me! By 1:30 I figured I'd better get something into me or I'd end up nibbling all afternoon and ruining my dinner. I make a yogurt parfait with the rest of my strained yogurt, pineapple jam, blueberries and raspberries.
DD wanted to hit up the store where she got a bunch of gift cert's for her b-day for a couple of sun dresses. I grabbed a Glenny's brownie for the rad as my lunch dessert;
Not necessary but scrumptious none the less!
I finally got a chance to catch up on my blog reading around 3. It was some much needed down time! DD tried on her 2 dance recital outfits so we were sure they fit right as her dress rehearsal is tomorrow. I was relieved that neither needed any tweaking. Here is her jazz outfit;
And the hip hop one;
We both prefer the jazz costume. Her hair will be slicked up into a bun and her face done up for tomorrow. Rehearsal is at 5 so we'll have to hurry and get her gussied in an hour's time. The joy of rushing!
We had BBQ'd steaks for dinner tonight. If you've been reading the blog for a while you'll know that I'm not a huge meat eater, never have been, and I like red meat even less. I actually HATED steak until I got preggers with DS. Once I started craving that, I knew something was up! That being said, nowadays I do enjoy a piece of steak every now and again. I paired it up with some fresh peach bruschetta and a great big helping of salad;
Here's a shot of the bruschetta that I bought;
I had another heap of salad for seconds. It was a store bought one that was $4.00 off so I picked it up for a quick side. It had cheddar, bacon, carrots, onions, cukes and tomatoes in it. I tried my best to leave the toppings for the fam. No sweet end as I'm stuffed! We're off to Mom and Dad's for a bit. If you haven't entered the FULL BAR contest, there's still some time....until midnight EST, to be exact! What are you waiting for?
It's likely that I will be posting a bit later than normal tomorrow because I'm not sure when I'll be home from dance rehearsal. Ahhh...recital time is crazy time, but I will have photos of DD all dolled up so the post will be worth the wait! And don't forget that I will be announcing the winner of the contest in tomorrow's post as well. Have a great night!
Bye for now!
