Hello blogland! We have had a very low key and relaxing weekend. My poor husband has a cold and has been feeling very cruddy the past 2 days so he needed lots of TLC. It is always nice to just enjoy some home time and not be out and about all weekend.
On a foodie note, I have eaten wheat the past 2 days and my tummy seems to be fine. Now lets hope that my skin reacts just as well. I found a loaf of bread at Whole Foods that is soy free. I ate some last night and felt pretty great afterward. I decided to whip up a loaf of whole wheat bread (the one from WF is not whole wheat). I used my bread machine to mix and knead the dough. I finished the loaf by hand and then baked it in the oven. It came out AMAZING!!!
I have lots of photos to share so here they are (not in the order that I consumed).
A typical Sammie style salad.
Apple Cinnamon Oats – sooooooo yummy!!!!
Golden Beet Salad and Grilled Veggies from Whole Foods.
Salad with relish dressing – thanks Tina for the idea – it tasted delicious. That is my homemade Whole Wheat bread topped with swiss cheese and almond butter. This is one of the best loaves of bread I have made.
Here is the loaf before going into the oven. I used a King Arthur Flour recipe. I made a few changes – I used a tablespoon oil instead of the butter and I subbed 3 tablespoons agave for the 3 tablespoons of sugar.
And the beauty freshly baked. My entire house smelled like baking bread which just happens to be one of my favorite aromas.
Of course I have consumed my share of yogurt this weekend.
I found a new one to try out – it was a winner.
Avocado and mozzarella on wheat bread.
My usual AM snack – string cheese and a pear.
Strawberry Banana Oats.
Iggy’s bread – the soy free loaf I mentioned earlier. It has a chewy crust with a soft interior.
Swiss and red pepper sandwich.
Salad – not my typical concoction. I was in the mood for a change. This contained lettuce, roasted red peppers, hearts of palm, sun dried tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, mozzarella and a drizzle of balsamic.
I will leave you with a picture of my sweet tart.
I hope you had a great weekend. See you tomorrow.
