Someone was just not happy I didn’t want to stay in bed all morning watching Max & Ruby.
I dragged him and his brother downstairs for breakfast, and even though I offered to cook they both chose cereal.
Usually they go for waffles or pancakes so I can’t complain about the occasional cereal request.
Me? I went with a sweet potato hash.
OMG, SO GOOD!
I have so many sweet potatoes from the farm I have to eat them before they go bad. I thought adding them to breakfast was a good idea.
While photographing my breakfast (I may share it on GreenLiteBites so I needed to take a few different shots) Someone was asking if I’d play Legos.
I, of course, said yes but only if he’s make a funny face.
The boys and I built a bridge wonderland around the Duplo Thomas Train.
Of course they got distracted by the big blue ball while I finished our Lego creation.
Since they were playing so nicely I started dinner in the crock pot.
Country style ribs and I threw in some wrapped potatoes to cook along side so I wouldn’t have to worry about them later.
Basketball break while doing the laundry.
Before too long I lost the boys.
One to Cut the Rope…
… And the other to Roblox and Cartoon Network.
Since they were distracted I decided to have some fun in the kitchen with some frozen butternut squash puree.
I made an awesome soup with a few ingredients I had on and and paired it with a salad.
The boys helped me clean out the fridge of leftovers but until I shut off the TV they wouldn’t acknowledge my existence.
The Husband came home a little later from tennis practice and made himself lunch finishing even more leftovers.
With the 2-year-old napping and the 8-year-old folding his laundry, I decided it was time for my Sunday Run.
But first a quick bite of banana.
When I got back the 2-year-old finally got his way.
He got to watch Max & Ruby in “the big bed.” Translation: My bed.
I got to fold laundry.
Afterwards I pulled out the most amazing dinner from the crock pot and paired it with some frozen peas.
Notice the fork marks. I was so excited I almost forgot to snap a picture!
Dinner with the boys was fabulous.
And everyone kind-of ate again. The 2-year-old needed a little convincing.
After dinner we dance-cleaned, took baths and settled in.
It was a great Sensational Sunday. The house is clean. Food is prepped. Tea is made. I’m ready to tackle the week and I KILLED it today.
It’s time for me to go to bed. I’m REALLY trying to get at least 7 hours a night.
Hope you had a great weekend!
