Happy Monday!! I knew yesterday that today was gonna be pretty low key so I decided to blend Sunday and Monday together.
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup Quaker oats
- pineapple jam
- almond butter
I also cooked it in the microwave. I’ve done enough dishes the past few days that I didn’t feel like dirtying a pot!
My Uncle came by around 10am to take DD for a Starbuck’s run. You just know that she was tickled pink! When he dropped her off he informed me that he was going on a Whole Foods run and did he have any takers. Um….HELL YA!!! I flew in the shower and was ready to go in record time. Here are a few of the more interesting items I bought;
That kefir’s for you, Allie!!! We were there over the noon hour so my lunch pretty much consisted of cheese samples. Yummy cheese samples. I bought some goat’s milk cheese and some Parmesan that was on sale at 50% off. Before heading out my Uncles treated me to a NF latte and the most delicious cranberry scone my taste buds have ever had!
He also brought us some treats that he got in a gift basket but knew he wouldn’t use;
The boys played in a father/son hockey game this afternoon. It was pretty hilarious to watch. The boys were definitely out to nail their Dad’s!
Dinner was a simple affair. Saturday night I took all the meat of the turkey bones and popped them into a stock pot with lots of cold water, brought it to a boil and then let it simmer for a few hours. After being strained and cooled all night, the fat that rose to the top got skimmed off and a pot of thick, rich broth was born. The fam had theirs with tortellini and I cooked up about a cup and a half with a 1/4 cup of Aztec grain blend. I also added a good helping of turkey meat back to the pot;
Then I busted out my Wii EA Active and hammered out a 45 minute workout. The first 1/2 hour was a full body circuit and the last 15 concentrated on my upper body. I’m quite pleased with the game. I totally broke a sweat and got my heart rate pumping. And I’m stiff today! :D The rest of last night was spent watching 4 episodes of Criminal Minds. Yes, I sat that long!!!
Hope you can all see that!!!
I sat around for a few hours playing on the computer before getting ready to get the groceries done. We were in dire need of toothpaste and toilet paper so there was no putting it off another day! I was starving by the time I got back and went with a quick pizza!
It was so dreary out today that I needed the flash at 1:30 in the afternoon! BLAH! DD and I watched a few episodes of Cold Case and then we went to pick up a friend of hers who is spending the night. Lasagna was requested by all and seeing as it was too late in the day to make my own, I bought one…and some garlic bread sticks. I got myself a single serve of roasted veggie lasagna. T’was good!
Then I had the last piece of apple crumble. Looked pretty much the same as the one above.
I’m told the plan for the evening is to watch the kids play Rockband. God help me!! :D Maybe it’ll keep my hands free of this type of nonsense that has been happening much too frequently the past week;
Ow, ow, OW!!!
Bye for now!!
