I woke up to very heavy rain and thunder this morning. A good day to sit around and recoup after 2 days of travelling about. Tomorrow is suppose to be wonderful weather wise, so we’ll be heading back to Ontario Place, armed with the $20 tickets this time!
I made pancakes for breakfast again this morning using a packet of berry flavour Amazing Grass. I find that this is my favourite way to use the product and it makes some pretty mean pancakes!
Yes, I took this photo on the carpet by the sliding glass doors! It was so gloomy out and it was the best source of light. :)
I was so lazy that I didn’t even get out of my PJ’s until almost 1pm! Granted, in that time I went down to the garden and picked 2 more zucchini and the last head of lettuce, cleaned the produce up and baked up some mini Blueberry Chia muffins!
These little guys were pretty good, but had no spice in them. Next time I will make it a point to add some cinnamon for sure. I ended up topping the next 2 I ate with a little cinnamon honey. I got 24 mini’s from the batch which will make great grab & go snacks for the rest of the week.
- red leaf lettuce
- the “salad” from Wendy’s that I didn’t eat the other night
- patty pan squash
- grilled red onion
- leftover pork tenderloin
- Ted Readers peach & bourbon sauce
- Raspberry walnut vinaigrette
I knew that meal would need some help digesting so DD and stole the neighbours pup and went for a nice long walk. I remembered to take a photo of said doggy today so you can all bask in his cuteness! His name is Quesi which is short for “Quesadilla”. I can’t remember his breed, but he’s a type of Cuban dog I believe. Anyways, here he is!
Don’t you just love that face?! I spent the remainder of the afternoon on the front porch reading. Nothing equals relaxing to me like diving into a good book! I was feeling snacky by about 4pm so I dug into my bag of Salt & Pepper Popchips…
I have got to find these in my area because they rock like no other. This coming from someone who doesn’t care for potatoes. I ate about 2 handfuls before I put them away. You see, until I find a Shopper’s in my town that sells them, they are like gold.
When dinner time finally rolled around we grilled up the Al Fresco sweet Italian chicken sausages that I
smuggled brought over the border yesterday.
I’ve tried the buffalo wing style before and thought they were better, but these were OK, too. I served mine up with a big side a pan cooked zucchini from the garden that had a drizzle of avocado oil and S&P on them,
Seeing as I enjoy my sweet stuff, the single serve pouches are great for me. And there was a decent amount in there. What you don’t see that came after the popcorn was 2 PB & chocolate chip cookies. My hubby came home with 2 bags last night! I’ve asked for them to be hidden from me!
Well, that’s all for today. I’m going to go do some more reading while the sun is still out. Then I might take a stroll around the mall to kill some time. Hope you’re all having a wonderful evening!
Bye for now!!
