It was a soggy, but good day today.We saw both sets of parents, made some muffins and took DS to soccer try outs so no complaints from the peanut gallery! I made a big bowl of hungry girl oatmeal for breakfast:
- 1 cup water, 1 cup USAB
- 1/2 cup Quaker oats
- chocolate raspberry mocha latte powder
- mocha hazelnut sprinkles
I had plenty of time to eat this today so none went to waste! We spent the morning at the farm visiting. I thought there might be a new foal, but not yet. Maybe by next Sunday. When we got back I took some pictures of the bathroom to show you. Here are some before & afters.
My hubby also installed the fan because there wasn’t one and that was part of the reason that the paint started to peel. I’m really happy with the end result!! What do you think??
Soccer tryouts went well. We won’t know if DS made the team for a few weeks yet. Regardless, he’ll still play house league on Thursday nights, but if he does make it, it means 8 practices and one away tournament the weekend of Sept 23. Fingers crossed! I read some blogs when we got home and then decided to make some muffins from Veganomicon.
The only things I changed were almond breeze in place of soy milk and dark chocolate chips instead of apricots (DD doesn’t like dried fruit). These babies came out sweeet, but you’ll have to read on to see a picture!
GLORIOUS!!! (sung in an opera voice!!) :) My hubby inhaled one of these and didn’t even notice the quinoa! HA!!! He thought they were pretty amazing, too. *Side bar-----I ate 3 Vrootman cookies at my in laws this morning and 3 chocolate chip cookies at Mom’s place after dinner!! Sunday seems to be cookie day in my world! *blush*----*
My parents have a large property by city standards and are Italian so they’ve always had a big garden. I never appreciated the produce until we bought our first house and I started planting my own. Then I realized how lucky I was to have grown up with fresh veg and fruit my whole life! I took some pictures of their plants. This is the garden:
Their zucchini already have flowers!!
Massive bush of sage. They also have oregano, basil & parsley.
About half of the tomato plants…
Dad also has grape vines all over the place. They’re loaded with grapes this year!
Yes, I am a chocolate fanatic, but I have graduated from candy bar chocolate to the good stuff. Whatever makes me feel better, right? HAHA!!
