A Holiday Monday

Leave a comment

Happy Monday!

I had a day taking my bedroom back from Christmas boxes, toys, and outgrown clothes. I was stopped for a little while to enjoy a tea party, but other than that, it was all business.

I made the girls french toast this morning (one of the only ways to get Abby to eat eggs), so I went ahead and joined them. I made mine a little different, however.

That’s whole wheat french toast with flax sprinkled on top. I sprinkle it on the uncooked side so it sticks to the egg when I flip.  I’m trying to cut back on sugar so no maple syrup today :(. Instead, I spooned on some Apple Butter and sliced half a banana on top. This was pretty darn good!

Lunch was some leftover Chicken & Sausage Gumbo. I wish I had more, but I was cleaning out the fridge, didn’t feel like cooking, and this was all that was left.

And supper was a grilled chicken sandwich with feta and cranberry sauce. It did the trick. This was a homemade bun I made today with some spent grains from The Man’s homebrew. More on that later…

Snacks today included some GORP (good old raisins and peanuts)…

and some homemade hummus and crackers. So easy to make…

This is not *true* hummus, as I’m lacking tahini, but it’s tasty to me and super cheap. A ton cheaper than buying it!

Today is a stretch and strengthen day, but tomorrow is that pesky Tuesday run. Hopefully I’ll actually  get to it tomorrow. Might have to move it to a new location though, as we’ve got some holiday activities in the afternoon.

Night y’all.

I'm like any other 30-something woman that works full time as a teacher, has two kids, a husband, 3 pets, and has battled cancer. ...among other things. I have things to say, sometimes. This is where I say them.
