I can’t be the only one that wishes the work week went by as fast as the weekend, can I? I’m sitting here amazed that in less that 12 hours I’ll be back at my desk. Yelp! :/
I had a pumpkiny breakfast again this morning, but this one was in the form of pancakes! Another breezy Hungry Girl recipe to be exact. I added blueberries to the mix and just look at how good these turned out!
It says the recipe makes 3 pancakes, but I got 5. I think it’s because instead of just hand mixing the ingredients, I whip them up in the Magic Bullet which in turn makes the batter runnier. Hey, the more the better, right???
Out at the farm this morning I got involved in a bit of a cookie feast. My MIL brought up 4 different kinds….almond, chocolate, gingerbread and maple……and I enjoyed one of each. Yum! This ruined my lunch appetite so I made up a small GM to sip on.
- 2 big handfuls baby spinach
- 1/2 cup USAB
- 1/2 frozen banana
I got showered after this and then we drove over to Costco which we haven’t been to since April. We used to go once a month at least but couldn’t justify the money over the summer this year. I picked up house stuff like toilet paper and Kleenex and the such. I also bought a box of Kashi granola bars, sliced baby Portobello mushrooms and salmon burgers. The best deal by far was a flat of blueberries for $5.99.
DD picked my butternut squash and let me tell you that I was not impressed as it’s not ready yet. :( I’m going to see if it’ll ripen a bit more in the sun, but I have a feeling not. There are 3 more still on the vine and I told her once again to NOT touch anything in the garden. Kids.
I had some time before dinner so I decided to put some of the berries to use in another Hungry Girl recipe….Big Fat Blueberry Muffins.
These’ll make great lunch snacks this week.
For dinner we did up another beer butt chicken. Loving this cooking method! It’s pretty much 20mins per pound. So easy! I served my juicy breast with leftover grilled zucchini and sautéed sliced Portobello mushrooms;
I didn’t have a sweet end because we were going to Mom’s and she always puts cookies out. After this mornings cookie fest, I was kinda glad that she put out crappy ones this week!!! :) I did enjoy a blueberry muffin when we got home, though.
Well, SYTYCD Canada is in in 20 minutes so I must wrap this post up for today. Catch ya all on the flip side!
