Hanging Out In The Kitchen!
***Don't forget to enter my giveaway for Beanfield Chips! I seriously love these chips! You know you want to try them!!!

I am blown away with all the support and kind comments I received yesterday! Thank you all so much for being there for me. Your comments really did make me feel better! Going through all those pictures and blogging about my boys really helped me get past the crying part of the life changes. I do have incredible kids and I am enjoying every stage with them! I'm seriously an extremely lucky girl!

I decided to spend the afternoon in the kitchen with the boys...

they played Monopoly while I baked cookies...

I made a batch of my gluten free oatmeal cookies, took out the dried fruit/nuts and added chocolate chips and hemp seeds (love me some Manitoba Harvest hemp seeds)...

Doesn't everybody put hemp in their kids' cookies? It has been too long since I baked cookies! They were so excited to have these! It just goes to show you that it really is the little things...

I also made lasagna (for them)...

and I made pizza (for me)...

This was green peppers, banana peppers, fresh tomato, onion and zucchini all on top of an thick socca crust!

In the mix for the topping was, 1 TBSP chickpea flour, 1 tsp nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and enough apple cider vinegar to make it pourable...YUM! 

I really did spend the rest of the day in the kitchen and it was a lot of fun just hanging out with my men. It's nice that Tony and I both work from home too, so we get to experience so many things with our family!

After yesterday, I will not be spending any time in the kitchen this weekend...I am working all day today and then I've already asked Tony if we can go back to our little private island spot at the lake for the weekend! Two more weekends until school starts back. We are going to make the best of it! 

Any fun plans for the weekend? Do you prefer the lake or ocean? I used to think I was an ocean girl, but after finding such a great spot at the lake and spending time at Tony's parents' place at the lake...I'm a convert to a lake girl especially since our new favorite spot has waves!
