This is how it looked ALL weekend.
The weather has been SO depressing for so long. It was even cold enough today for snow. SNOW!
Ugh. I don’t want to talk about. I know most people are experiencing the same if not worse. I just can’t believe how much it’s been affecting my mood.
Anyway, the day started with a game of Candy Land with my Little Alligator.
This was his reaction when the game was over and I wouldn’t play Sorry.
Ahhh, I love 3. :)
I decided there was no way the One Week Eat IN challenge wasn’t going to end a success so I put dinner in the crock pot.
That’s pork roast and sauerkraut. Something totally new for us.
With dinner in, we turned our sights on breakfast. Little Bean and I made a batch of blueberry and chocolate chip pancakes.
They came out great!
I basically used this recipe and modified it adding some flax meal, frozen blueberries and mini-chocolate chips.
After breakfast I started folding laundry while Evan played trains and talked my ear off about everything and anything.
The awesome side of 3. :)
Soon we were joined by Dad and Big Brother and our family game of dodgeball ensued.
The 4 of us stayed downstairs for quite some time just playing. It was really nice.
Of course no day would be complete without some mesmerizing video game time.
Cereal sharing with Dad.
Gloomy days call for big batches of homemade soup.
I’ll definitely be posting that one on GreenLiteBites later this week!
We all ate it for lunch and both kids liked it even though it became a grated cheese fiasco.
My little robots.
I decided to take them to one of those indoor bouncy places because we just had to get out of the house.
The kids had a great time. The staff there were really great with them.
We came back and feasted on our slow-cooked pork.
Before bed, a few chores.
And a few stories.
So that was our day. Everything really is saturated but that’s OK, our One Week Eat IN Challenge has been a success!
I’m not going to post my food journal table today. I did a lot of picking here and there so it wouldn’t be accurate anyway.
Hope you had a great weekend! I’ll be back tomorrow with a final post to wrap up the challenge where we can all share our thoughts and experiences.
