Good Morning! I slept until 7 this morning because I was up until 11 making crackers with the husband. WOW, these are AMAZING!!!!!!!!
I unfortunately have no photo of the uncountable number of crackers I ate last night (including 2 in dough-form) but I could not stop eating these they were so delicious. Doughy, yet crispy, and full of whole wheat nutty flavor. And VERY easy to make if you have a coffee grinder (or some way to grind seeds). Our batch made about 90 crackers, which broke them down to about 20 kcal and .5 a gram of fiber a piece. Not bad!
Get It Done
We have a lot to do today to prepare for our company and the rest of the weekend, so we decided to head to the gym first thing. I did 30 minutes on the Stairmaster, 20 on the ET and we did some upper body lifting together on the machines: chest, shoulders, pullups, dips.
I had half a potato bun with PB&J before I left. The husband is making another batch of these today. If you are a dough person, you MUST make these. They are a dough-lovers delight and are so chewy and light.
Here’s my fuel for the first half of the day filled with cleaning, grocery shopping and non-stop chores:
Kath Classic made with a large banana, a pinch of salt (I don’t think I noticed a difference with today’s amount. I’m doing the 3 bears of salt– first too much, then too little!), vanilla, flax, walnuts, almond butter.
With hot tea –

Spring Break Plans
We’re going to a breast cancer fundraising dinner tonight with my parents, who are coming in town from Hillsborough, my MIL, and my sister at Davidson. First we’re going to walk around the Davidson campus and meet my parents for a drink. Then my parents are staying the night, and we’re all going to lunch at my MIL’s tomorrow and hopefully watching DUKE play! Sunday night we’re cooking for my parents. My dad is leaving early Monday morning and my mom is staying with me for a day of mother-daughter bonding shopping and of course going out to lunch Monday night we’re cooking for our mom’s and then on Tuesday I’m driving my mom up to Greensboro to drop her off at my dad’s office. Whew!! The rest of my break will be spent working on my 2 big projects, and of course relaxing. I’d love to do a little baking of my own!! Next Saturday we’re going out with blog friends, and then Sunday we’re planning to cook a ham!
I’m off to go grocery shopping and to Costco – trying to spend as little $$ as possible!
Hope you guys have a fun-filled Saturday!
