…but I’m not sneezing yet! I highly doubt I’ve managed to escape allergy season, but it’s nice not to be swollen and stuffy yet. How’s Monday going for you so far? Despite being woken up by the dog throwing up at 6am, I’m dandy. Monday, I’m ready for you. I carbo-loaded for you. So bring it.
PS- I used the old trick of wilting the spinach while draining the pasta. Extra veggies- score!
My weekend was a pretty nice combo of relaxing and productive. When David is out of town, which he was for most of the weekend, I find myself knocking things out. Important things. Like laundry. And planting tomato plants.
This tomato plant is called a PATIO tomato plant. It’s specifically designed (whatever that means) to thrive in a smaller/potted environment. Fingers crossed I don’t kill this one. Or the arugula, mint, basil, oregano, parsley and cilantro I’ve planted.
Other exciting events included grocery shopping at Target. With restocking the pantry, the bill was up to $150. Eeks.
And it took a while. Sorry, munchkin.
I found time during nap time to play around in the kitchen and created these beauties.
These, my friends, are baked banana-nut oat cups. They are individual servings of baked oatmeal that I can freeze and eat throughout the week. I nuked one this morning for 30 seconds and I can’t tell you how excited I was to not dirty a bowl. These would also be great crumbled on top of Chobani.
Each cup has 122 calories, 18 g carbs, 4 g fat, 4 g protein and 67 mg of sodium. Check out the recipe for Banana Nut Oatmeal Cups if you’re interested in an easy, healthy weekday breakfast option.
The weekend wasn’t all go-go-go. We took time to relax and ponder life’s many deep questions.
She’s either pondering the existence of time or wondering if there is more to eat in the world than just broccoli and sweet potatoes. We also attended an egg hunt!
Hailey only got 2 eggs. We’re working on her egg hunting skills for next year. Being mobile might aid her in her quest for eggs and her ability to escape from the world’s creepiest looking Easter Bunny ever.
All in all, it was a fantastic weekend and I’m ready for a great week. Was annoyingly chipper attitude an ingredient in those oat muffins? Or maybe I just have spring fever (the good kind). Either way, life is good.
Do you have spring fever?
Are you planting anything edible?
