|Thank you to everyone for your kind words! So, things are getting better! Finally, I got some sleep last night. I think I have actually been keeping everyone awake with my coughing. My youngest son, Max, told me yesterday morning that he has been having a hard time sleeping. This morning, he woke up and told me that he finally got some sleep. Ugh, I can't believe this has been bothering everyone at night. It has been bad though, I haven't even been working out. Those of you who know me, know that is not like me! I did get up this morning to do some yoga. I figured some sleep and a nice slow workout would be a good way to get motivated in the right direction. I have felt better today, so I am going to just go with it! Thank goodness!
Like I said before, cooking has really not been a top priority. Today's post is all repurposed pictures, but it definitely highlights our favorites. Some old and some new. Speaking of old and new...I made our family favorite gluten free cinnamon bread the other day. This went in a flash. With a shmear of almond butter and you will be in heaven! It is really easy to throw together and it goes so well as a breakfast or a snack with a cup of coffee (which I have been drinking like a mad woman!).
If you don't do the gluten free thing...the original one is great too! I know it seems crazy that I bake when I am not feeling well, but it always makes me feel a little better and I like making things for my family. Besides, the 15 minutes of exertion to make this then gives me loads of time that I don't have to think about making something for them. Besides, they love it so I know it is appreciated.
Cantaloupe was on sale and I really can't turn down a good melon! These have really hit the spot for me. So refreshing and tasty with orange juice and zest!
Tonight I am making our new favorite...the pantry raid Carrot and Lentil Stew. I can't wait for this to be done! It sounds so good tonight. Very comforting meal! I will be back tomorrow with somehting new...I promise!
