Still in love with French toast – one bite at a time! Actually, mom requested it a second day. Otherwise I was going to have yogurt. But I will not turn it down. There has to be something chemical about my new French toast addiction though — I’m not sure I’ve had this big of a food swing since I fell in love with oatmeal circa 2007!?
I made it pretty much the same as yesterday – an Apple Scrapple slice cooked in egg with seared banana and melty peanut butter. Plus some of dad’s coffee.
M has replaced Lillian’s perch on Peepaw’s lap during morning paper reading time! He learned how to spell “earth” today.
I packed up the whole car and got on the road around 11 today. We didn’t have the best drive – a few stops were required. But M slept the whole second half of the trip, and it went by quickly thanks to the comedy station on XM radio!
This was my lunch on the road: a carrot, two clems, pretzels and a yogurt. I snacked on these items one bite at a time for probably 1.5 hours. The contrast of pretzels to clementine was amazing! I also swiped a mini pack of M&Ms from mom and dad and ate those one at a time too. I love to crunch off the “candy shell” and then suck on the chocolate. I certainly enjoyed all of these bites!
M was happy to see his dad this afternoon – the longest they’ve been apart in 3 months! I got stuck in a bit of a tornado when I got home – laundry was flying, groceries were scattered about, suitcases and unopened mail whirled by. I hate coming home on a Sunday because I have weekly housework and unpacking at the same time!
I somehow fit in some obsessive vacuuming of my new car (I’m determined to keep it clean!)
And a quick trip to the grocery store
For afternoon snack I had a spinach (2 cups), banana (1) and milk (1 cup) smoothie. Made up for not having a salad at lunch!
Plus a spoonful of Justin’s chocolate almond butter:
I’ve had Justin’s Hazelnut, but I’m not sure I’ve ever had the chocolate almond. It was just like ganache, I tell you! Justin sent me this jar along with some maple AB as a fun surprise in the mail – much appreciated!
I had plans to go to Faith’s for a party tonight but unfortunately something was off with Mazen. He has been extra fragile and crying for unknown reasons on and off all afternoon, so we decided to stay home. I hope he’s OK!
For dinner we shared a large macadamia nut encrusted tilapia filet I bought at Whole Foods. I love their seasoned fish. They’re not that cheap, but when you factor in the ingredients (nuts are pricey) and labor (saving time every now and then is great) and the cost of restaurant entrees (eating at home is always less) then I think they are a really awesome dinner treat.
This fish was DELICIOIUS!
Served with brown rice leftovers reheated with some coconut butter
And a huge pile of smoked paprika-scented kale chips!
Would you like some kale to go with that ketchup?
Enjoyed, one bite at a time.
I’m off to go snuggle with the cutie pie.
