I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday! Relaxing, I hope 🙂
I haven’t been able to get on today; it’s football day and Marc has been glued to both the TV and NFL.com – hence, me posting at 3-something this afternoon.
I just got home from doing a bit of “me” shopping. NEW SHOES! For both me and the baby; his feet are growing so fast… still not walking yet but soon! I had to get a pair of heel type shoes that I can wear with jeans.
I hadn’t eaten lunch yet so I quickly made some Amy’s organic chili with avocado, olives, hot sauce, raw sunflower seeds, and a nice bowl of chips and salsa:
It definitely has a kick to it! Water, water, water…
I was so excited to see my new oven that Marc made me try it out with a batch of chocolate banana bread.
I love my banana bread recipe but he was craving chocolate so I melted some semi sweet chips in a double broiler and added a layer to the middle.
In the oven it went!
OMG – it was amazing! The chocolate made it rich and dessert like! You can view the recipe here.
I looked at Marc and said it needed a dollop of almond or peanut butter on the top… he just smiled and said ” Yup, that sounds like something you would do.”. 🙂
I didn’t try it because I was just eating some bites off of his piece but I will definitely try it before it’s gone!
I wasn’t feeling too well when I got up, and still don’t, so I opted for a good ole smoothie.
- almond milk
- frozen strawberries
- frozen blueberries
- a scoop of Amazing Grass, chocolate
- a peach
- an orange
- some ice
I had to use the peach and orange as they were getting very old! It tasted pretty darn good, too. 🙂
Even after last night’s baking, I was still busy in the kitchen this morning. I had to make Jordan some dinner options – Annie’s Organic mac and cheese with carrots and peas, and I took apart my pomegranate that was sitting on the counter. I plan on making a pom recipe soon!
It took a while but I finally got all of the seeds out.
Now I just need to find a good recipe!
