scrambled cereal

I had a weird breakfast craving yesterday.  My taste buds were asking for popped amaranth and a banana scramble.  So I thought, why not combine the two?

I popped about 5T amaranth, which turns into a huge serving of delicious, puffy cereal.  Then, I cooked up a banana scramble, topped it on the cereal, added peanut butter, and poured on the milk.

Craving satisfied.  I loved eating the puffy cereal, with bites of the banana scramble along with it.  Not familiar with the banana scramble?  I haven’t made them in awhile, but check out my recipe page [under breakfast] for a handful of variations.

Before heading down to Denver, for Brewgrass [beer + bluegrass music], I prepped a lunch to-go!  It’s pretty easy to find veggie options almost anywhere we go to eat and even at festivals.  However, veggie + gluten free is not always easy.  I have to think ahead even more so now.

Salad to go:

  • 4c spinach
  • plain cooked millet [from friday night dinner]
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 delicious pickle
  • feta cheese
  • hemp oil/balsamic/apple cider vinegar
  • pepper

I packed this in my purse for the 2nd half of lunch.  Although I don’t buy pre-packaged bars often, these are a favorite.  I caught them on sale for $1/piece when I was home in Ohio.

We headed to Denver and had a blast with our friends, who we haven’t seen in way too long.  We’ve been so busy this spring with the house, we haven’t made it to Denver nearly as much as we would have liked.  [Denver is about 1 hour south.]

We ended the night with a fire in the backyard, hanging out with Peter + Michelle.  Such an enjoyable Saturday!

Today I have my first real photography gig!  I’m excited + nervous, but can’t wait to get this business rolling.  June + July are pretty busy for us, with the Telluride music festival next week and an out of town wedding the weekend after that.  Our third wedding anniversary is June 21st and my birthday is July 3rd.  Natalie [my sis in law] is due July 10th and my parents will be in town July 19th!  There are also a lot of house things on our to-do list as well! Despite the busyness [which I’m used to!] I’m hoping to really get things up and running in July! 

Be on the lookout tomorrow for a new series on the blog tomorrow!

Off to enjoy the weather and then head to Boulder for some photography. :)
