|I feel like it has been forever since I posted on here. I almost don't even know where to begin. Last week was crazy with school stuff for the boys. We had a chorus concert, a drama play, a band concert, a holiday party at school, icy roads that delayed school 2 hours, resumes going out everywhere (I am still looking for work), work for our company...yeah, the time flew by. We also had a few people over on Saturday for a holiday game night. It was so nice to have friends over since we are home all the time, we kind of miss out on the festivities of the season. Unfortunately...Max (9) is sick. Whatever he has, hit him all of a sudden on Saturday morning. This made it really hard for me to really enjoy the fun stuff going on in the house that evening because we had him quarantined upstairs and he felt so left out. So, I was upstairs with him a lot.
Yesterday was a complete day of rest for all of us. I don't know when the last time we did that was? We literally sat on the couch, the four of us, and watched Christmas movies the entire day. I did not cook anything. It felt amazing to just hang out with my family and not deal with anything! We ate leftovers from the past couple of days and tons of citrus fruit from our box of fruit. I don't know if I should be impressed or frightened by the amount of citrus we have consumed this past week. Hopefully this well guard the rest of us from the funk that Max has! Knock on wood!
Oh, I did have a tasty snack yesterday that is worth mentioning! I wanted something to dip my apple in, so I mixed together some Vanilla Epic Protein powder
, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, a little water and a little stevia.
The addition of the protein powder made the pumpkin creamy and thick. The subtle vanilla undertones worked perfectly with the pumpkin.
I love finding different ways to use protein powders since I don't do the smoothie thing. I will definitely be making more in the way of protein puddings for snacks. This was full of flavor and a perfect afternoon snack.
