We had another wet, dreary day in these parts today. Seems like we’re paying for the very nice first part of September we had. Eh…hopefully next weekend will be brighter and warmer!
Mmmm, pancakes! I was thinking last night that I hadn’t made any in a while, so I whipped up a batch today with a pack of Amazing Grass;
I also added a sprinkle of chopped walnuts to each pancake before flipping and when they were done I spread some Crofter’s Asia superfruit jam on them.
DD participated in a babysitting course today from 10-4 so we went out to the farm once she was settled in. On the way home we stopped at Knapp’s to buy the “pie of the day”, peach blueberry, which just so happens to be my favourite fruit combination.
Lunch was some more cauliflower barley pilaf with the rest of the buttercup squash;
You bet I did my fair share of oohing and ahhing while eating this! :D
After getting myself beautified I drove over to Costco for some much needed snacks for school. I find it so much more convenient buying drinking boxes and granola bars in bulk. Here are some of the treats that I bought for all of us to enjoy!
The kids are gaga over the chocolate chip Weetabix and I must admit they they are pretty good! I’m eager to try the Maple Pecan Crunch cereal and the Kashi granola bars are ones we’ve had before…7 grain, pumpkin pie spice and toasted almond…but they’re all ones that are safe for the kids to take to school. I also bought some of my favourite turkey sausages for tonight’s dinner;
It seems like they had stopped carrying this brand for a period of time and I’m sure glad to see it back!
Once I picked DD up, we came home and I helped her with her homework. They’re learning about politics which certainly isn’t a favourite topic of mine, but I guess I learned along with her! Once that was done I dappled with another ED&BV cookie recipe…Thumbprint Jam Cookies!
I went with the hulled hemp seed version and used spelt flour in place of the barley flour. I also polished off the Crofter’s Asia superfruit jam. I got 15 big cookies even though the recipe was to yield 11-13 and they are GOOD! The kids lurve them, too! SCORE!
Dessert? 2 cookies! YUM-O….
We just got back from my parents house. I nibbled on 2 more cookies while there.but just the packaged ones. Now I’m enjoying a chocolate spice tea and The Amazing Race. I plan on an early bedtime so I’m fresh in the morning….
Bye for now!!
