Why is it that the weather man is never wrong about rain? True to the forecast it was raining by 9am. Ugh. On a positive note, it did force me to stay indoors and get some much needed housework done. I started out the day with a warm breakfast;
- 1.25 cups water
- 1/2 cup Mother’s oats
- carob chips, yogurt chips and hazelnut pieces
wasted spent some time on the computer before getting ready to head out for my one errand of the day….Costco! The photos I dropped off last week to be plaqued were ready for pick up and I wanted to buy a few more flats of annuals for the flower beds. I also bought fresh blueberries, goat cheese and a box of burgers for my hubby. Here are the pictures:
Left to right we have the kids at 2.5yrs and 6 weeks, then DD at 6 wks and the 2 of them 2 Christmas’ ago. Hehe!
While I was out my hubby prepped the walls in the bathroom for a new coat of paint. The people we bought the house off of a few years ago painted it with the wrong paint for washrooms so it started peeling and looked gross. Work in progress photos! I’ve decided to go with a blue as a replacement colour because I want to do a “seashore” theme and I also think blue looks nice with dark brown which is the colour of the cabinetry. Here’s my choice: It’s hard to get a good picture, but what do you think???? I’ll be sure to post after pics!
I was starving when we got home and threw together a bowl of goat’s milk yogurt, Crofters superfruit jam, blueberries and Bare Naked granola: Then I wolfed back a slice of whole grain bread with raw chocolate coconut spread on top.
Enter housework for 1.5hrs as a means to stay OUT of the kitchen! :)
By 3pm I was feeling restless and started flipping through my recipe folder. I found an easy bar recipe that I had all the ingredients for so I went to town. This lovely looking beauty is Allie’s coconut carob pecan oatmeal bars. Only I didn’t have any pecan pieces so I used walnut instead. ;) I ate a piece for dessert and really liked it. Lately, anything with coconut in it is making me happy!
My hubby went out with my siblings for dinner, but I stayed back because I don’t like the food where they went. Instead, I defrosted some homemade chicken stock, added lots of pureed, steamed veggies, star noodles, chicken breast and tortellini to make a (hide the) veggie soup.
The dull lighting didn’t do this soup any justice! It was really good. I did end up putting most of the torts back in the pot. Still don’t like’em! On the side I topped an Ezekiel English muffin with goat cheese and tomato and toasted it in the oven;
…and my hubby is picking up a few movies on his way home so that’ll be my Saturday night. What are you up to??
Bye for now!!
