I caught up on some blogs while eating and then got ready to get the grocery shopping done. I timed it so that I had just enough time to put everything away before we had to leave for hockey. The game was actually cancelled, but the coach was able to get a power skating instructor in for the boys. Were they ever done in for when they got off the ice!! I had a few more items to pick up at the grocery store beside the rink….it carries a MUCH larger selection the the store by my house…..so I got the fam settled in with some lunch from the hot bar while I whipped around the store. I stocked up on Almond Breeze (on sale for 2/$4) and Nature’s Path granola (on sale 3/$10). I also bought some of this almond butter to try out;
I spread it on a toasted Stonemill bagel along with some of this pomegranate jelly;
The almond butter was OK. Certainly not TJ’s or MaraNantha. I’d buy it again, but I wouldn’t RUN out to buy it again. Here’s my lunch plate with the bagel and the other half of the kabocha from last night. That had some butter, cinnamon & maple syrup on it. Mmmm…
I was so eager to eat I snagged a bite pre photo shoot! :D After lunch was done DD and I took KC for a walk. We’ve been so busy that we haven’t had a chance to spend time with him lately and I missed the little bugger. DD bought him a costume at the dollar store. Check him out!
In this picture he was playing with Pepper, who wasn’t exactly thrilled with his playmate. After we got back I ran out to do the rest of the errands. The Bulk Barn was on my list and I stocked up on a bunch of items as well as picking up a few new things to try. Here are the 2 grain blends that perked me interest…
I’m pretty psyched to try these out. I bet they’d be good in a soup or pilaf style. I’ll definitely be playing around with them. I also discovered that they carry a version of TJ’s Harvest Grain Blend that I love so much! The call it a “jewelled blend”, but it has all the same grains in it. SCORE!! I didn’t buy any because I still have some of the TJ’s kind. I also got a new tea;
I’ll be giving this one a whirl a little later on. When I got home I switched my shopper hat for my Betty Crocker apron and got some housework done. Fun times….enter sarcasm. I did inhale a honey crisp before getting started. All the shopping made this girl hungry!
Dinner was easy peasy. The fam wanted eggs and pea meal bacon and I warmed up a serving of quinoa stew which was served over a bed of sautéed kale.
What I haven’t mentioned yet in this post is that I’ve been itching all day to pick Twilight back up. I started it on Tuesday, but was really tired and didn’t get in as much reading before falling asleep as I usually do. I sat down with it last night at 8pm and before I knew it….WHOOSH…..it was 11pm and I had gotten SUCKED IN. Now, I’m not anywhere near 17 anymore. In fact, I’m 17 x 2 + 1! :D But this book totally took me over last night. I was so completely drawn in that I peeled myself off the couch and read for another hour in bed. Even at that, I had to force myself to turn the light off. Now I’m almost done the whole book, but would really like to draw it out a few more days. I left it upstairs in my room and put a magazine by the couch so I don’t read until I head upstairs. YIKES!
Well, I’m signing off for the evening as my folks will be here soon. I hope you all have a great Saturday night!!
Bye for now!!
