Good evening, I hope the rest of your day was lovely. D and I ventured into Candy Land for a while – he managed to play without trying to sneak by me.
I snacked on this ROLL! – my last one and I think I might give these a rest for a while. The package actually was stuck to the bar and I had to chew each bite like 50 times – was it stale???? I am sticking to my beloved Luna – she never lets me down. Can I eat more than one a day??? :)
For dinner I made a speedy soup – my own recipe. It was so delish and I have extra ingredients to make it again, so I am going to. I started by peeling a small sweet potato. I placed it in a glass bowl, covered the potato with water and cooked in the micro till fork tender but not mushy. In a medium saucepan I started cooking some red onion in nonstick spray. Once the sweet potato was cooked I added it to the softened onion. In the pot went 3 artichoke hearts (I used canned and cut them in quarters before adding) and 1 1/2 cups TJ’s vegetable broth. I let it come up to a boil, then added 1/4 cup white cannellini beans, cumin, cardamom, turmeric, paprika and fresh ground black pepper. I let the flavors mingle for a few minutes before serving.
I had my soup with a Flat-Out filled with melted shredded cheese and an apple.
For dessert I had a Chocolate Brownie Z Bar topped with a little PB. After this beauty was photographed I popped it in the microwave for 30 seconds so it was warm and gooey when I ate it.
After dinner it was time to bathe my little sweet tart and read him some bedtime stories. As I was ticking him in he asked me to sing him a song – he is probably the only person on the planet that wants to hear me sing. His 3 favorites are ABC, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – at least they are easy ones.
Time for mommy to relax. Have a great night.
