I hope you all had a great Wednesday! I babysat from 9:30 this morning to 4 in the afternoon, and have been relaxing and playing with Ella since I got home. Can’t get much better than that! :-)
It was the first day of summer break for one of the boys I watched today, and we had some beautiful weather: 74*F and sunny. And next to no humidity!
I love being a student and still having a summer break, but man, I do envy these kids for having an actual break with no work, school, or anything! :-)
The boys’ dad is coming home tonight from a big 17-day long business trip, so I thought it’d be fun for them to make and decorate a “Welcome Home” brownie for him. It was just from a box mix.
Waiting for it to bake.
Both of their decorations ended up being blobs of frosting and sprinkles, but oh well. I love getting kids in the kitchen! :-)
You’ll probably get tired of seeing pictures of this, but I will hopefully never get tired of eating it (I have eaten it for dinner twice in the past week, even)! 0% fat Greek yogurt, fruit, and granola! Yuuuuum.
Sweet potato, green beans, and chicken. (I remembered to take this picture after I started eating it…whoops.)
Snacks (throughout the day)
I actually didn’t snack today! Hooray!
Pork chops, broccoli, grapes, and brown rice, with a side of watermelon.
(My camera really does not take great food pictures. I should start using my dad’s good one…)
Chocolate frozen yogurt…
….and an Oatmeal Scotchie (look for the recipe soon!).
I was actually completely gluten-free before the cookie, which is quite something for me (I’m a
bread, cracker, cookie carb addict). Last week, when I mentioned in my Thursday Thoughts that I was trying to be gluten-free for a majority of the days of the week, I should have been a bit more specific: my goal is of course to be completely GF throughout the whole day, but I consider it a success if I can make it 2/3 or 3/4 of the day GF. My main reason for challenging myself this way was to cut down on snacking (on the above mentioned carby offenders), and if I can make it through most of the day without caving in, I am pleased with myself. So, anyway, I can’t claim to be totally GF today, but it’s still a start!
