Oh how I needed today. No work, no commute, no traffic, no rushing, no eating out, no baked goods or candy. Just me and the little guy playing, cooking, RELAXING.
After some pretty intense play (I’m talking action figures, nerf gun fights, jump rope), we baked. . .
We decided to make an old favorite, Whole Wheat Banana Muffins.
It was nice. Especially since the little guy has been less and less interested in helping me in the kitchen lately. :(
This morning was like old times and nothing makes me happier then to cook something with my son and have him enjoy eating a healthy home cooked meal.
After our late breakfast I decided to take a bath. That’s right a mid day bath and let me tell you, it was all that I thought it could be!
I filled the tube with bubbles, put on a face mask and started to read Twilight, one of my Christmas presents.
Once we were both dressed, the little guy and I headed out to clean the car and hit the grocery store. It was nice to shop for a week where we would be home for most meals and I wouldn’t have to cook after sitting in traffic on my commute home from an 8 hour day at work.
While cooking dinner I squished in a game of Trouble, errr, I mean Scooby Doo Pop ‘N’ Race.
While I finished dinner and snapped photos of The Husband’s New Favorite Chicken with Veggie Couscous, a Nerf battle of epic proportions ensued in the house. Here you’ll see the little guy cocking his weapon while hunting down Daddy. :)
After dinner, we cleaned up and watched, what else, our new Scooby DVD’s. :)
I now sit here watching FoodNetwork and blogging with you. My house is still quite the disaster zone but I made progress by cleaning the car and stocking my fridge. Tomorrow is house and laundry, not to mention another day of cooking and eating food at home. It makes me smile just thinking about it. :)
Here’s the food journal today. I didn’t eat much but I wasn’t that hungry. I think my body was in shock from all the smidgens yesterday (if you don’t know what I speak of don’t ask… you REALLY don’t want to know. :)
