The dogs galloped around the yard when I got home.  They were WAY more excited than usual.

My stash:

  • peanut flour!! [these bags are SO much smaller than I thought they would be, from seeing them on other blogs]
  • wine crackers [they just sounded delicious]

Looove this harvest grain blend!!!  Also, a huge stash of mondel bread [a Jewish cookie] that my Aunt made for me.  It’s one of my favorite cookies.  I’m hoping to make it and share the recipe with you guys soon!

I hit the banana jackpot at Natural Grocers today.  I would say I got about 25 organic bananas for $2.  These babies are about to be frozen!

Simple + delicious dinner. 

tofu + kale + millet + pita

I made curried millet tonight, which was delicious!  After dinner I also had an apple smeared with gobs of salt kissed cashew butter + maple cinnamon almond butter.  I brought some of that back from Ohio. :)  My hunger was through the roof today, with a long day of travel to blame.  I was in bed at 2am and up at 6am [oops], then in the air by 9am and into Denver by 10am, with the time change.  I hopped on a shuttle to get back to Ft. Collins and met Chris for lunch.  Then, finally got home at 1pm [3pm Ohio time].  I basically ate continuously all day.  My body was confused!

I finished a new header!  Go check out Erin’s new look over at The Healthy Apron!  I also finished another header about 1 month ago, for Kristin, at Cook Bake Nibble.  Par of Kristin’s is a little covered up because we could not figure how to get rid of the black search bar!  Oh well :)  I really love both of the fonts that were used for these 2 headers. 

Thursday?  Already?  Eek!  Time to play catch up!

Thanks for all of your sweet comments on the photos I took of my cousins, that were posted yesterday.  So much more to learn!



Oh yah…hoping to have the photos finished in the next few days, from the event I shot 2 weeks ago!  More soon!!
