Well suddenly our little love nugget has turned into quite the loud little man. He has discovered how much fun it is to yell and bang on things. It’s actually quite funny to watch. He’s happy doing it so whatever floats his boat! Although, we do draw a little more attention to ourselves in public now.
This is a picture of the him yelling while throwing his laundry out of the basket. I guess he didn’t want me to disturb him. Ha!
Zucchini Oat Drops
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp of sugar *
1 grated zucchini, about 1 cup
1/3 cup of applesauce
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry into wet and mix well. Drop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and press down slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool before serving to your nugget 🙂
* I don’t like adding white sugar to any of our food, especially the love nuggets. However, since I wasn’t using bananas which add a natural sweetness, I didn’t know how these would turn out without any sweetness. The 2 teaspoons doesn’t add a lot of sugar so if you want these sweeter you could add more white sugar or even try brown sugar. Or you could leave it out completely.
Last night we had a yummy tilapia dinner that I adapted from a Giada recipe with a miso salad.
Tilapia Won Ton Tacos
2 filets of tilapia
1 tbsp coconut oil
salt and pepper
1/4 cup of cherry tomatoes, diced
1 small avocado diced
1 small orange diced
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
juice of half a lime
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
1/2 cup of sour cream or greek yogurt
1 tbsp of wasabi powder
1 tbsp lime juice
salt and pepper
7-8 won ton wrappers
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Lay out 7-8 won ton wrappers and spray one side with cooking spray. Place the unsprayed side down into the muffin tray pressing into each muffin cup.
Bake for 5 minutes or until tips are lightly browned. Set aside to let cool.
Mix together all ingredients for salsa and set aside.
Mix together greek yogurt or sour cream, wasabi powder, lime juice and salt and pepper in a separate bowl. Make sure the wasabi powder is completely mixed in. Set aside.
Finally, heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and melt coconut oil in it. Dice tilapia into chunks and add to the heated oil.
Season with salt and pepper and cook tossing a few times until fish is white and completely cooked. Try not to disturb it too much as the fish will flake easily as it cooks. Remove from heat and top with a squirt of lime juice.
Place a few chunks of fish into each won ton cup. Top with some salsa and some wasabi sauce.
The hubby really likes this meal when I make it so he gets quite a few more won ton tacos than I do 🙂
While we ate dinner tonight we pulled out a few more discussion starters from our “Let’s Talk” box. After dinner I may or may not have indulged in a few of my Gluten-free peanut butter cookies that I made yesterday. They are even better today, nice and soft and chewy.
Today we are off to Stroller Strides and then… I have a hair apt this afternoon! Woo Hoo!!!
Have great day!
