Did you have a killer day?
I was home so already mine was A+.
But let’s make it better shall we?
Baking muffins is always fun.
Shari turned me onto an App called Trufflehead.
I found a recipe called High Protein Vanilla Pecan Crunch Muffins.
Oats, ground flax, pecans, egg whites, protein powder….very hearty and moist.
After my day of twix and feeling icky yesterday, I decided a hearty breakfast nibble was just what the doctor ordered.
I like them but I am never quite sure if the masses will.
Than I tried Almond Butter Cookies
Soft, and chewy. The almond butter gives it a sweetness that peanut butter doesn’t have.
If you want some recipes that offer a lot of nutritional punch go download Truffelhead.
Besides some housework, reading games with JJ, and a trip to Costco, I also spent some quality time with Aidez.
I am glad I took a little breather. The minute I wrapped the Berroco yarn in my hands I fell in love all over again.
Two inches to go and I’ll have met my week 2 goal
I can’t believe how heavy this sweater is already. It’s going to be warm and cozy!
As our day was winding up, I decided to find a way to use up some orange peppers and chicken. Shari’s Indian Spiced Quinoa is a favorite in our home.
I don’t have the recipe anymore so I winged it before it dawned on me to go look it up on her recipe page.
I added chopped asparagus too. It might have been not the original recipe but it was amazing. Full of flavors and aroma.
Plus it’s a light supper which I love.
I used up leftovers so I loved that too!
Earlier today, I worked with JJ on his letters and he surprised me by reading about 5 words on his own.
Sometimes he cheats, like when he sees the card for egg and he says “bird” I know he looked at the picture.
I’m pretty giddy. My 3 year old is starting to read.
It’s freaking me out a little.
I still can’t understand big words and use pictures to cheat.
Maybe he will learn to read knit charts for me!
This is the kind of day that I love the most.
It’s easy, productive, happy and the coffee was good.
Also I turned my boys into zombies.
RUN FOR YOUR LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVES
He’s really mad at me for making him UGWY.
Really they always look like this before I photoshop them!
The day would not be complete if I did not torture my family!
Gold Rush is on…time to go!
