Sunday’s Shenanigan’s

I enjoyed a glorious sleep last night. And so I fixed myself a glorious breakfast: IMG_0681

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • mashed banana
  • carob chips & walnut pieces IMG_0680

Good morning pretty oats! Before heading out to the farm we all got up to no good such as some early morning wrestling, IMG_0682

Stink eye PSP playing: IMG_0683

And online shopping: IMG_0684

I’ll be sure to post the goods when they arrive at my doorstep. *hint-one of the items is on the laptop screen* Hehe!

The we horsed around out at the farm for a bit: IMG_0687

Upon arriving home I remembered to take some turkey sausage out of the freezer for dinner… IMG_0685

My absolute favourite! Then I showed last night’s salad who the boss was by stuffing it into a WW pita along with chicken bacon and goat feta.


Then Mrs. Avocado showed me who was boss by once again proving that you can bake her kind into dark chocolate chip avocado muffins taste free! IMG_0690

The sun was shining and my body was yearning for some vitamin D so DD and I took to the street for some window shopping. Then we somehow ended up at Winner’s where I was conned by my inner blogging Diva to buy some pineapple ginger tea: IMG_0691

And vanilla chai: IMG_0692

And as if that wasn’t enough, my daughter conned me into buying and sharing this oh so delicious chocolate bar with her! IMG_0693

Yes, I have “sucker” written on my forehead! LOL!

The sun also brought out my desire to eat LOTS of salad. So that is what covered most of my plate at dinner with my sausage hiding at the side of the plate. IMG_0697

The berries you see on the greens is from this dressing… IMG_0696

Next up was more fun with avocados! I turned to Averie’s vegan chocolate mousse recipe for some help. It started out looking like this: IMG_0694

And very quickly turned into this: IMG_0695

I divided it into 3 containers and then licked the spoon and bowl clean. Rich, creamy, chocolaty…..heaven. I plan on scooping it up with strawberries tomorrow!

I just finished watching The Amazing Race (LOVE those cowboys) and am now watching a bit of the Oscars. I hope the weekend has been kind to all of you!

Bye for now!!

  5. Ahhhh, if you like rich + creamy + chocolatey things that taste like heaven, you gotta check out the promotion I'm hosting for Love Street Living Foods on my blog... their raw/organic/vegan Chocolate Coconut Spread is amazing!

  6. Fantastic weekend! :D I wonder what did you buy online. hehehe... I've never bought close online.

  7. Shopping and yummy eats- sounds like a good day to me :) That little horse is so darn cute! Warmer/sunny weather always calls for salads- doesn't it??

  8. what exactly is a carob chip? I've read about them on other blogs but couldn't tell you a single thing about them!

  9. I always love hearing about the horses on the farm...are they ponies or miniature horses?
    Whenever i go on that website I either hide my purse or close it quickly, I can not resist!

  10. Krista, sorry about the ridiculous shipping to Canada! What a bummer. :( Hmm.. maybe we can do another blogger "exchange" if you let me know what you wanted to try? Have a good one :)

  11. Great pics, breakfast looks divine and I love avocado chocolate mouse!

  12. That lunch pita looks divine! (I'll be on the lookout for that sausage! ;) ) I've been wanting to make chocolate avocado mousse...another reason to pick up avocados! :)

  13. Walnuts and carob chips! My FAVE!

    And the muffins look great! I'll have to bookmark and give them a try!
