- 2/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup cup Quaker oats
- almond butter
- strawberry banana jam
This meal packed a punch and held me over for a good long while!
I have to back track to last night for a minute here. My hubby decided that he liked the banana soft serve enough that he wanted another batch as a snack. No problem! We used 2 frozen bananas and a half cup of mixed berries in this batch and it turned out fabulous!
This here is less than a half cup; I'm betting that he ate a good 2 cups worth!
We set out at 11am in less than stellar weather, but the weatherman said sun for the afternoon so we trusted him on that. We decided to go to Ontario Place as I had thought that we could get discounted tickets through our City Pass. Whenever we go somewhere for the day we pack a lunch for the cooler and plan to arrive at our destination for lunch time. This way we can eat just before entering the park which saves us money in buying food on the grounds. I wasn’t crazy hungry at lunch so I ate a banana blueberry muffin from St. Jacobs…..
Turns out that the discounted tickets were not available, but I still wasn’t about to pay $33.50 per person because I can get tickets for $20.00 each at work. Before leaving DD and I got my Hubby to take our photo…
We weren’t too far from the Ontario Science Centre so that is where we ended up.
It`s a GREAT place for the kids. Very hands on and informative. They have a ball there that makes your hair stand on end when you touch it. DS doesn’t really have any hair for it, but DD sure looked funny!
Just in case it’s not clear, it reads “Scientists creating all terrain robots looked at how snails can crawl safely over razors by secreting mucus to smooth their way”. Cool! I came across the prettiest flowers on a tree when we were on our way back to the parking lot!
Anybody have any idea on what this might be called??? Traffic on the way home was just awful. Bumper to bumper the whole way. I snacked on some watermelon while we were crawling through it;
DS had soccer tonight and thankfully we were wise enough to pack his gear because we didn’t have enough time to go home first. That also meant fast food for dinner. We ended up at Wendy’s where I had full intentions of buying a salad until I saw that they had shrunk in size over the last few years. I went with a chicken snack wrap;
The wrap was OK in a pinch. The piece of chicken was all white meat and pretty decent. Too bad they decided to go with a white tortilla. Whole wheat would have been MUCH better.
Shortly after getting back on the road it started to pour buckets. It rained pretty much right to the soccer field. By some miracle it stopped just in time for the game and the sun came back out.
Right now I’m feeling a little stressed out and am debating a short run, but I just chugged a cup of joe and it’s a little darker out than I like to be by myself in. I may have to dust the treadmill off. All in all, we did have a great day, if a little scattered! I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for tomorrow. The weather will decide that one! I hope everyone had a great Monday!
Bye for now!!
