Oh, boy was today ever a lazy one! It was not a nice day…the temps only reached 19*C and it was windy! I started off the morning with laundry sorting duties before I made some eats. I was good and hungry when I finally sat down at 9am!
- 1/3 cup USVAB & water
- 1/3 cup PC 5 grain cereal
- almond butter
- coconut spread
This was a terrific breakfast. The one sad thing is that I used the last of my coconut spread and it’s not available in the area anymore! Crappy.
I was told that this is the last week for local strawberries. Such a short season. Housework ensued once the fruit was washed and put away and before I knew it, it was 1pm. I wasn’t sure what I wanted for lunch, but I knew I wanted it to include some of this..
YAY! My Amazing Grass order came in yesterday. These sample packs only cost me $6.00. Can’t go wrong there. What to make, what to make….how about more pancakes?? I present to you Amazing Chocolate Blueberry Pancakes w/ Raspberry “Jam”.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2 tbsp Bisquick
- 1/4 cup egg beaters
- Amazing Grass Kids Chocolate powder
- 1 tbsp cottage cheese
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 3 tbsp USVAB
Blend all this together in the Magic Bullet then stir in a 1/3 cup of fresh blueberries. While the pancakes are cooking, mash a 1/2 pint of fresh raspberries with a fork until they resemble jam. Add sweetener if you like. Arrange pancakes on a plate, top with raspberry jam and dip into maple syrup if desired!
Seriously AMAZING! I’ll be entering these in Katie’s pancake challenge for sure! Here’s the packet I used;
This is when laziness set in. I made a coffee and basically watched TV from 1:30 until 5pm!!! And there wasn’t really anything good on, either. I tried to sit out on the porch with my book, but it was just too darn chilly. Booya. Around 3 I dove into this fantabulous “Mountain Man” vegan cookie from the market. Check it out!
This beast was chalk full of dried fruit, nuts, carob chips and toasted coconut. It’s my fave next to the cherry pistachio which is waiting for me to eat it tomorrow! :)
We finally dragged our butts off the couch for a super simple dinner. I steamed up some frozen veggies, warmed up a can of beans and nuked a sweet potato until cooked through. The fam had Juicy Jumbo hotdogs instead of the sweet potato. I loaded my tater up with beans and cottage cheese and ate the veg on the side…
I feel like such a blob after being so inactive all day. I’m trying to talk myself into a walk to shake it off. Wish I had a dog to take along! I’ll leave you with a photo of this chucker that has decided to make itself part of our neighbourhood. I never even knew what a chucker was until we googled it after taking a picture!
(this is not our photo, but it’s exactly what the bird looks like!)
Have a great Saturday evening, all!!!
Bye for now!!
