This afternoon D and I went to the library and checked out three books from the Nature’s Children series – he really enjoys learning about different animals. Today he chose lizards, Canada Geese and snakes.
When we got home it was time for a snack. I had 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup TJ’s High Fiber cereal and a sliced golden delicious apple.
Then it was cookie baking time – I opted for a sweet and salty recipe which I found in my King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking cookbook. My honey loves cashews so this recipe was a perfect fit for him. If you haven’t noticed by now – cookies are my favorite baking project.
Tonight for dinner I finally tried to make Tuna Cakes. I saw Lindsey make them a while back and have been wanting to try to make them. I checked out the recipe she used and made some adjustments for the ingredients that I wanted to use. It is so simple – seriously it can’t get any easier. I drained 1 can of tuna, then added an egg white and 1 tablespoon of oat bran. I seasoned that mixture with Old Bay, parsley flakes and pepper. All I did was mix it all together in a bowl and form it into 2 patties. I cooked the patties in a pan sprayed with nonstick spray for maybe 15 minutes (I really didn’t time it – I was trying to feed my little man dinner at the same time). I ate one of the patties with a sweet potato that I cooked in the microwave then topped it with a tablespoon of TJ’s Red Pepper spread. The Tuna Cake was awesome – it had a nice kick to it from the Old Bay. I am so glad that I made these because I can whip these up in a jiff for a healthy and quick meal anytime. AND I have one left over for tomorrow.
I also had 2 Wasa crackers with a tablespoon of PB with my dinner.
For dessert I had a Chocolate Brownie Z Bar and a cup of Sugar Cookie tea.
It is now time for me to get ready for bed. The thought of my warm sheets is very alluring. See you in the morning.
