Last night I found THIS in the kitchen after I was permitted to enter the room:
Homemade chocolate ganache! And leftover cake cutouts!
I was naughty and probably ate 1/4-1/3 cup of the ganache – straight from the bowl – with dips of cake. But how often do you have a bowl of leftover cake parts just sitting in your kitchen!!! I can’t wait to eat the real thing tonight. He’s still got one more part to do before it’s all put together.
Breakfast this morning was another decadent creation –
- 1/3 cup Windy Hills flax oats, 1/3 cup hemp milk, 1/2 cup H2O
- 1 tbsp raisins (my newest oatmeal love – I forgot to mention these yesterday).
- 1/2 large banana (not ripe enough )
- Salt, vanilla
- 1/2 cup pumpkin (on the bottom – I didn’t mix it well)
- Granola plank
- Pumpkin butter
- 1 tbsp wheatberries
- Spoonful PB (plus a second spoonful mid-eat!)
With tea –
I’m not feeling my best this morning despite 9 hours of sleep. I bet it was a combo of the wine + sugar
But I did manage to clean the kitchen and all the floors in the house (mop + vacuum). I also checked the mailbox and found these treats from Megan of Megan’s Munchies after I had said I couldn’t find them in my store –
Thanks so much Megan!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to try one.
Tonight we’re having an Oktoberfest Birthday Party with some of our friends! Beer + sausages + fall fun. Wish you all could be here to celebrate! My goal is to NOT overdo it celebrating tonight or I will RUIN my actual birthday tomorrow. I told the husband already: If you see me picking at the cake or reaching for a 4th beer, STOP me. I promise it’s for our own good. I need to stretch out the celebration to last until Monday morning and if I eat/drink too much tonight, tomorrow will be drab.
The sun is expected to pay me a birthday visit this afternoon. Better get to the gym before I miss him!
