Today I took D over to the book store for the weekly Story Time. One of the employees picks out a few books to read to the kiddies and they all sit on little benches while she reads to the and attempts to hold their attention. She always does a great job and the kids usually are all well behaved. After the stories she handed out paper and stickers to everyone so they could make a little craft.
Today’s theme was a science lab. D and I had some fun with the stickers.
D wants to surprise Daddy with his laboratory tonight.
There is a Starbuck’s located inside the store, so of course D asked if he could get something to eat. I did give him a snack before we left the house. I couldn’t resist the little sweetie pies pleading pleases. I let him get a cookie which was the size of his head. Great way to ruin lunch mommy – yes, he ate the whole thing. I have no idea why the picture looks so blue – I must have had the camera focused weird. His face is so funny. He kept telling me “ok mommy this is the last picture” – it took me a few tries to get him to look at the camera instead of the monstrous cookie.
While D devoured his cookie I ate a Luna bar with a cup of decaf coffee.
When we got home I wasn’t ready to have lunch so I took the time to cook up something different. I cooked 1/4 cup Jasmine rice and browned some 93% lean ground turkey. Then I assembled my plate. I wanted to do a sort of Mexican Lettuce Wrap. On the plate was lettuce leaves, Jasmine Rice, veggie mix (lettuce, red pepper and summer squash), 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup fresh salsa (this was store bought) and 2 ounces ground turkey which I seasoned with cumin, coriander, cardamom, paprika, turmeric and 365 brand hot sauce.
This was a fun meal to eat. I love the assembly process and all the flavors tasted so great together. I have a ton of left over ground turkey so you will be seeing lots more of it in my meals. My hubs is not really a big fan of it but maybe I can season it up in a way that he wouldn’t mind eating it.
I finished lunch with a Chocolate Brownie Z Bar.
D and I have been playing some old school video games – Pac Man, Dig Dug, Rally X, Galaxian and Bosconian. Not that much else is happening at my homestead. Have a great afternoon.
