Today turned into a rather balmy day weather wise. It finally stopped raining but we were left with some serious humidity. Every time I went outside my skin instantly felt sticky.
This morning D was feeling much better so I took him to the bookstore for story hour. The theme of the day was “Mommy” and they all got to make a craft to give to their mom’s. I snacked on a Cherry Pie Larabar before we left the house.
We ran to The Paper Store on the way home so that I could pick up some cards.
When we got home it was lunch time. I made Swiss cheesy Rice Cakes, a salad (lettuce, coleslaw mix, zucchini, salsa, hummus & cottage cheese) and I ended lunch with an apple and a dab of PB.
I had a hair appointment today – just a bang trim. I am trying to let it grow in a little. We had to run to the grocery store afterward because of course I forgot milk the other day – oops. The good thing is I bought this yummy bar and had it for a snack when I got home – it was super!!
So before I left for my appointment I put 2 cups Raw Sunflower seeds in a bowl and covered them with water. I let them soak for a few hours and they plumped up a lot. I drained the excess liquid and put the seeds in my food processor. I processed them for a while, continuously stopping the machine to scrape down the sides. I added 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup and blended for a few more minutes. I probably processed the mix for a total of 10 minutes – maybe more. It turned out smooth but a tad dry. I am leaving it that way. I put the fresh “butter” in a bowl and it is in my fridge. Charlie tried it and he says that he will eat it – I’ll let you know :)
For dinner I made 2 pieces of gluten free Swiss cheesy toast and another salad. This salad was sooooo good. It had lettuce, strawberries, red grapes, red pepper, chicken, a tbsp Raw Sunflower Seed butter and Maple Grove Farms Strawberry Balsamic dressing. I love a fruity-filled salad.
I am currently snacking on more grapes and I will eventually get to the Corn Thins & PB.
Tomorrow I am definitely running outside since it will not be raining. I am really looking forward to it.
I hope you all had a great day. I will announce the winner of the cereal contest in the AM.
