All She Wrote

Hey all! I’m not feeling 100% tonight so I’m gonna do a quick recap and then hang out like this cutie pie: IMG_0142

And drink a mug of this Teopia tea:



I was up by 7am this morning thanks to Mother Nature. I wasn’t hungry for breakfast so I decided to make 2 batches of muffins. First was blueberry chia muffins: IMG_0139

Next was my raspberry oatmeal muffins: IMG_0138

DD decided she would help me out by reading the recipes out to me:


Once hungry I whipped up a bowl of oats in the microwave: IMG_0133

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup flax seed porridge
  • cinnamon
  • blueberries
  • walnuts IMG_0135

I spent part of the morning playing Big Brian Academy on the Wii with DD and the rest doing housework. Once showered and prettified, I made a lunch for the road as DS had an out of town hockey game this afternoon. I packed a WW bagel stuffed with Allegro cheese, mortadella and lettuce. IMG_0148

And a bowl of pineapple and grapes: IMG_0149

Tasty, tasty!

The drive to the game took us along the shores of Lake Ontario… IMG_0152

I was a gorgeous day with not a cloud in the sky and the water looked brilliant.

We were home by 5:30 so I threw a quick meal together. I baked these multi grain battered fish sticks, IMG_0153

And served them with couscous and steamed broccoli. IMG_0154

The fish was just meh. I’ve never been fond of anything breaded and this just reaffirmed that. The fam gobbled them up, though. My sweet end was a small bowl of gelato. I took a photo of the container because it was just prettier than using the flash. ;) IMG_0155

And that’s all for today! Pretty exciting, eh?! Tomorrow will be a low key day for once. A visit to the farm, a little shopping and dinner and my parents for Dad’s b-day. Nice.

Bye for now!!
