Hi everyone! The past 2 days have been jam packed with many different happenings so I’ll be brief with the typing and let the pictures tell most of the story.

Lunch was a serving of tasty quinoa stew;
Still loving this! I’m thinking it was my last serving that I had stashed in the freezer so I’ll need to make more soon. I saved my nuts for just before it was time to go home because I knew dinner was going to be L-A-T-E;
I got my butt out of work at 4 on the dot, went home to pick up the fam and we hit the road for an out of town hockey game. Traffic was better than we expected and we arrived at the rink in 1hr 20 mins which is about as long as it usually takes to get there. The fam snacked on PB sandwiches on the drive, but I waited until the game started at 6:30 to dig into my own stash;
I devoured my super sweet honey crisp apple, but brought the goat’s milk mozz back home. The boys lost….badly. Like 10-1 badly. YIKES! Although there were some good moments, they just seemed wiped out right from the start. Oh, well! :/
About the only veg I didn’t get was onions (too late for those) and mushroom because they looked fresh out of a can. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten a sub this big and it was certainly more then enough! When we got back into town my hubby stopped at Tim Horton’s. The kids had ordered cookies and they gave us one extra so I did my duty and ate it up!
Mmm, Mmm, good! After that it was home, bed. Night night!
I rolled out of bed shortly after 8 this morning and took a much needed hot shower. I think these cold benches at the rink are going to do my lower back in. I found my Bob’s Redmill 7 grain cereal in the back of the cupboard so that made it into my breakfast bowl today;
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup Bob’s Redmill 7 Grain cereal
- pumpkin puree
- almond butter
- chopped peanuts
Can you guess what came next? Yup…HOCKEY! :D This game was in town, though so no hectic highway driving. The boys lost again today…5-1….but played 100% better than last night. DS’s line scored the lone goal with him having an assist. Here he is pre-game, mouth guard and all;
Once we were home, and he was showered, we grabbed some lunch. I had the rest of my goat’s milk yogurt (about 3/4 of a cup) with some cranberry sauce and some Nature’s Path Gluten free Maple crunch cereal;
The cereal was very, very good! It was light and airy, but most of all, full of great maple flavour. Definitely in danger of been eaten by the handful if left in plain sight! This cereal gets a 2 thumbs up from me.
HEHE! We hit the mall after eating to get the kids Hallowe’en costumes and DS some pants as all his became “floods” over the summer. DS decided to be Bumble Bee the Transformer and DD went with a mask that she plans to pair with some odds and ends from previous years costumes. I won’t let on which mask she picked, but it’s one of these 3!!
I had a small snack around 4 to tide me over as I met up with my sis for some dinner eats (read on for the deets!) I toasted up an English muffin and topped it with some pomegranate jelly and last night’s mozz slices. That went in the microwave to get all warm;
Mmmm…gooey! The jelly and cheese were a great contrast of flavours. I’ll be pairing them up again soon!
So, Lisa and I met up at a raw food cafe that we heard about in our city called WOW Wild Organic Way.
It’s just a wee place that’s only open Thursday to Saturday with a small menu. None of that turned us off, though! I actually liked that there wasn’t a HUGE selection to choose from because it made our decision easier. We both went with the “tasty tacos” which included a sun dried tomato paste and guacamole. There was more on there that I can’t quite remember now! The side salad had the most delicate tasting cashew dressing on it! I could’ve eaten a whole plate of that alone.
The macaroons were an intense chocolate flavour and the hemp balls were to die for. Lisa though they tasted like cookies & cream ice cream and they reminded me of a really good quality vanilla ice cream. Li got the berry bliss cheesecake which she really liked so I decided to bring a piece home for my hubby. Here’s his de-constructed;
He shared a few bites with me and Mom and while they weren’t over the moon about it, I thought it was pretty darn good. All in all I had a great experience at WOW and would love to go back again sometime.
And that wraps up this post. I’m just now snuggling in to catch up on some blog reading while my hubby watches hockey. I hope everybody has had a fantastic weekend so far!!
Bye for now!!
