Every now and then I have an impulse buy out of the ordinary that makes it into my grocery cart (the marcona almonds, for example) and this smoothie! It was next to the Greek yogurt and the bottle called it an Icelandic-style skyr smoothie. The vanilla had 6 grams of sugar and I noticed when I got home it was sweetened with stevia but was not overly sweet. I liked it!
It formed the base of this yogurty “smoothie” bowl – with cranberry sauce, banana, granola and sunbutter on top.
The cranberries sunk to the bottom, but there was a good half cup in there. Loved the contrast of sweet yogurt to tart cran sauce, crunchy granola to creamy banana and sticky nut butter. Allllll about the textures!
I don’t even know what we did all morning! I know we read Green Eggs & Ham together and I wrote several BERF posts during naptime. Also changed quite a few diapers!
This photo must have been morning as evidenced by the PJ pants! Somebody is getting too big to sit like this. *Tear*
For lunch I made a salad with Hugh Jass beans, avocado, goat cheese, citron salt, olive oil and greens
With a slice of whole wheat cranberry orange on the side
Have you ever seen a prettier knife set? These are new to my OpenSky shop, and are simply gorgeous. They match my kitchen theme of bold retro-ish colors perfectly! They also match some of my other latest kitchen finds, like these measuring cubes and the Tether Stemware Saver.
They are also dishwasher (top rack) safe and fill all of your slicing needs – from pairing (green) to sandwiches (red) to bread (white) to chefs (blue). $45 for a complete set would make anyone’s Christmas brighter.
Late this afternoon, Matt came home and I went a’runnin’!!! 4.0 long miles. How did I ever run 3x that far!? Mile 1 always goes quickly, but mile 2 s t r e t c h e s on forever! I ate a date dunked in the sunbutter before I left.
The boys played together while I cleaned off some chairs on the porch after my run and then myself in a shower. I also am on a mission to vacuum out my new car once a week, so I did a sweep of that with my hand vac too!
Dinner was pretty awesome. I bought a salmon sausage from Whole Foods last week and froze it for a TBD dinner. We decided a soup would be fun, and threw in a bunch of veggies we had in our fridge.
First we sliced and browned the sausage link (which admittedly was a bit fishy and sort of disappointing) along with about 1 cup of sliced bell peppers and an 8 oz pack of mixed mushrooms. Once they were cooked, we added 2 cups of veggie stock, some leftover wakame and some frozen collard greens (these are my favorite for soups!) – about 2 cups of greens. Lastly we stirred in some leftover pasta, about a cup, but you could stir in cooked rice or leave the noodles out altogether.
Served with crusty bread on the side, plus another sliver while we were cooking because I was starving post-run!
We ate a really early dinner, so I might go back for a small snack before bed. Otherwise when I get up at 2am I’m starving!
