For the past year I have been doing all my blogging at my kitchen table. Not really the best place for my laptop seeing as we have spills every now and then. Thankfully the new laptop is still unharmed but it was time for me to get my own desk. I really wanted the computer to be away from us when we are gathered as a family to enjoy our meals which is really not that often (Charlie always eats dinner later than D and I).
So I preset you with my new blogging station.
As you can see that is where I ate my breakfast this morning – my guys were already finished eating by the time I sat down to eat. I did some blog reading while I enjoyed my delicious bowl of oats.
In the mix this morning was the same combo that I have been eating for probably 3 weeks straight – I am still not sick of it. I even ate this breakfast every day of our vacation. I love my cinnamon banana blueberry oatmeal with a PB2 drizzle. I really look forward to this breakfast.
I am also looking forward to eating more of the veggies that my Nana sent home with me yesterday. Check out the loot.
A BIG zucchini and a summer squash. This is one of the round zucchinis that I was telling you about.
AND tons of green and yellow beans.
I made my dinner with some of the veggies last night. I cooked up red pepper, bell pepper, zucchini and summer squash. Then I added some chana masala spice blend and asafetida powder. This was my first time using the asafetida powder and let me tell you, that stuff smells DISGSTING!!! I was worried that it was going to make my veggies taste bogus but thankfully the flavor is nothing like the smell that it emits.
I roasted some of the beans in the oven until they were just barely wilting. I like my veggies to still have some crunch. I ate my load of vegetables with cottage cheese and hummus. It was so yummy – guess what’s for dinner tonight?
I am off to hang with the D man. He asked if I would take him to Plaster Fun Time. He keeps telling me that is where he wants to have his birthday party. He is a little impatient I guess. I am up for an artsy day – I do love to paint. See you later friends. I hope you have a fabulous Thursday.
