Maybe someday D will be an actor. He is always pretending to be someone whether it be a person or an animal. Who did I have keeping me company today? Seriously, he wore this out ALL day – even to the shoe store to buy him some new sneakers. The salesladies got a kick out of him. When he was getting ready to put his PJs on tonight he asked if he could wear the robe instead. I had to draw the line that thing is probably full of so many germs.
So our day went well. D & R had a grand old time playing this afternoon. R even got into character - he was Ron and I was Hermione. After my sis got back we took the boys to the shoe store so that I could buy D a new pair. His sneakers had barely any tread left on the bottom. I realized just how worn out they were on Sunday when he had no traction on the rocks – oops, thankfully we held hands with him. Of course he had to have the same pair as his best buddy even if they were a size to big. He shed some tears and I caved and bought the big ones – whatever, his feet will grow.
Okay onto the eats.
This morning before heading out I tried another flavor Weil Bar – Pistachi-Oh!
It was very flavorful – I love the combination of the coconut and lemon. The spices reminded me of pumpkin pie – very fallish. It was the same texture as the other 2 I have tried – similar to a Larabar. This bar was full of chunky goodies.
I packed a lunch to take with me. I combined the leftover veggies from last night with lettuce, cottage cheese and a sauce made from PB2 – told you I was going to repeat the delicious concoction.
I also had a Nature’s Promise Bar after I ate my salad. I meant to pack a piece of fruit just in case I was still in need of a little something else but I forgot in my mad dash to get out of the house on time. So I just ate what I had and waited to see how my tummy reacted. Well about an hour and a half later my stomach was growling. I stole a granny smith apple (not my favorite but it was all she had) from my sis. Since GS apples are a bit bitter, I chopped it up, added some cinnamon and nuked it till the apple pieces were soft. It was actually pretty tasty. Around 2:45 I made a cup of tea with a drop of honey and a splash of milk – so not the usual way I enjoy tea but my tummy needed it.
When D and I got home I needed to have a little something to tide me over till dinner. I had a small bowl of plain Greek yogurt spiked with cinnamon and a rice cake topped with sunflower seed butter and jelly.
For dinner I had 2 Wellshire Chicken Apple sausages inside a gluten free hotdog bun, a sweet potato with some dippers on the side – organic ketchup & mustard. The mustard was for the sausages too. Odd combo but oh so yummy.
I also had a bowl of raw veggies (broccoli, jicama & grape tomatoes) drizzled with Maple Grove Farms Strawberry Balsamic dressing.
Dessert was the same as last night – 365 brand Dark Chocolate. Simple yet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.
I am off to call my mom before it gets too late. I need to get in bed kind of early. It is another busy day tomorrow – I have to babysit the little monkeys at the gym in the morning.
I hope you have a great evening. See you tomorrow.
