Vacation Day 2 - Whole Foods

Phew…today was a wet one! I took advantage of that this morning by getting a lot of housework out of the way. If it’s nice out I just can’t find the motivation to stay in and clean!

I whipped out my new hot cereal by Windy Hill Farms to try out this morning! 100_5196

Once cooked up it reminded me very much of cream of wheat which I love! And man, was it filling! 100_5198

  • 1/2 cup UNVAB and water
  • 1/3 cup cremo cereal
  • cinnamon
  • almond butter
  • blueberries


This was very, very thick and stuck to my ribs like glue. I wasn’t hungry again for 5 hours! I’m glad I decided to give it a try.

After all the cleaning was done and out of the way, we made the one hour drive to Whole Foods. Besides browsing, I wanted to pick up some ground bison for burgers tonight. Wouldn’t you know that they were sold out??? Figures! I did find Almond Breeze on sale at 2/$4 and I also picked up these way cute baby summer squash… 100_5201

I also bought some blueberries, watermelon, a cooked chicken for dinner, and some Sahale snack mix. My hubby grabbed a few things including guacamole, chips and this Stash tea that I had been eyeing up earlier in the week! 100_5202

The boy loves his Stash as much as I do!! I did eat some lunch on the drive down although it wasn’t very exciting. I spread some sunflower seed butter and raspberry jam on an Ezekiel English muffin and called it a day! 100_5200

Simple, portable and delicious, too! You can see by the poor light quality in the photo that it was a dark day out there! There were a few times on the drive down that I almost pulled over because I couldn’t see much beyond the windshield!

We got home right about dinner time so I threw the chicken in a 250 degree oven to re heat while I steamed up the baby squash and cooked a box of KD for the fam. I had a side of cottage cheese sprinkled with pepper on my plate. 100_5203

And dessert was the chocolate mousse cake from yesterday’s excursions; 100_5204

This one was so rich and lush….my fave by far! My parents came over for a visit after dinner and we got all caught up on the weeks events. Now I plan on hanging out with my hubby because they kids are (grudgingly) in bed. Hope you all have a superb Saturday night!

Bye for now!!
