Hi all! I had full intentions of naming this post “Vacation Day Three”, but it was just like any other Sunday around here so I changed my mind. The kids surprised me with a wonderful breakfast this morning!
Here we have an egg sandwich and a fruit salad of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and bananas. I ended up popping the sandwich in the sandwich maker to toast it up as the bread got kinda soggy which makes me gaggy. Once toasted, it was perfect! My hubby helped me with the bananas because although I love their flavour, they too make me gag! In the mug there was some chamomile tea.
We drove out to the farm in one hell of a thunderstorm! It was pretty cool watching all the lightening, but it was hard to see the road for the rain. I must admit that FIVE wonderfully delicious Voortman cookies passed through my lips along with my coffee! *BLUSH* What can I say? Cookies dipped in coffee are addicting!
This is my first nasturtium bloom! There are 4 more buds coming along, too.
Because my cookie consumption completely ruined my lunch appetite, DD and I took the neighbours dog for a nice long walk. We were home no more than 5 minutes when another thunderstorm blew in. I didn’t say anything to DD, but I was worried we weren’t going to make it home when I saw the clouds that were rolling in! I finally got semi hungry around 2:30 and decided to finally make a treat that I have seen ALL OVER blog land lately….banana soft serve!!!!!
I put 2 frozen naners in my food processor and let them whip up for a few minutes. Then I stirred in a good big handful of fresh blueberries. All I can say is….WHAT HAVE I BEEN WAITING FOR???? This was to die for. Seriously! I shared some with the fam and they all loved it, too! I don’t think I ever need to eat ice cream again. For real. DD and I were discussing different add ins and we both think that walnuts and maple syrup would be just awesome additions. Coming soon to a blog near you, my friends! I also ate an All Bran chocolate chip bar but forgot to take a picture in my soft serve euphoria!
Still wanting bison burgers after our let down at Whole Foods yesterday (if you’re just tuning in, they were sold out), DD and I set off to a few meat shops in the area to hunt some down. We were able to find store made, frozen bison burgers at the 3rd place we tried so we went with them. They were 6az patties, but I weighed mine after grilling and it shrunk to 3.5oz. A much better size for me! I served mine on a WW bun with Sabra hummus, pepper jack cheese, ketchup, Dijon, hot peppers, a grilled red onion ring and a pickle. On the side was some of the garden zucchini that had also been grilled up…
What a fantastic meal! The bison burgers are so lean and flavourful. I much prefer them over beef.
We went to my parents after dinner where I ate 2 more cookies. I think I should just go by “cookie monster” today! :) So it would figure that the kids just went up to bed and now it is thundering again. I can guarantee you that they will NOT stay up there as long as the sky is rumbling. *sigh*. I’d better get up there and do some damage control! The weather is looking half decent for tomorrow so we are planning on a day trip somewhere. Come on back in 24 to see what we did!
Such a man! :)
Bye for now!!
