My favorite day used to be Saturday. Or Friday. It was a tie.
But these days, Sunday wins hands down. And that’s because Matt is always home! We often use the day to just chill and relax and get a lot done around the house. I am always happy when I’m cleaning and organizing : )
The day started off well – with pumpkin pancakes!
We used the Great Harvest mix (which we sell here) and added about half a cup of pumpkin to the batter. The best part of pumpkin pancakes isn’t the flavor but the texture!
I got the baby dressed for the day and we headed out together while Matt ran some errands.
Thank you to Auntie Tina for the bear onesie!!
A trip to Riverview Park to meet my mom’s group! I used to go to the group a lot when I was pregnant, but we are just now getting brave enough to go on regular outings now, so I figured I’d walk down to meet them. There wasn’t a huge turnout today, but I got to walk for a long time with another mom I hadn’t met before, and we had lots to discuss. Upon our return, we found two more picnicing under the tree!
I walked there and back with the stroller (and back with the baby on my chest) and think I covered about 5 miles round trip. An excellent workout today! The hills on the walk there were pretty steep – but what goes up!
Matt met me back home for a delicious lunch.
Smashed egg salad sandwiches. I just smash a hard-boiled egg with about a tsp each of mayo and mustard and a dash of salt and pepper and spread it onto bread.
Salad on the side – greens, olive oil, honey, salt, fig, carrot, pepper, gorgonzola.
I bought this little Asian pear at the city market. They always have a hint of vanilla to me!
Afternoon fun – FIVE loads of laundry! That might be a record for me. We had 3 beds to wash plus clothes and towels.
And the brewery is now SOOO much more organized and clean! Matt spent hours on it today.
Mid afternoon I FINALLY got around to making The Fitnessista’s Pumpkin Amazeballs. Or rather, AMAZEN balls! [I’ve been trying to find time to make them all week]
Love them! I quadrupled the recipe, used coconut and oats like she did, rolled them in coconut and just added a few tsp of maple syrup for the sweetness. These went in my freezer for midnight snacks while I’m up with Maze.
Dinner tonight was a Matt specialty of leftovers morphed into something new: Steak + Bean Quesadillas! Stuffed with peppers, tomatoes and cheese.
Served with salsa + sour cream
And a side of mac and cheese.
We were worn out from our day, so we kept dinner low-key.
