Hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend.
I accomplished some of my goal to stock up on the love nugget’s food supply, managing to make broccoli won tons and mini turkey meatballs. I also prepped lots of stuff for this weekend and made some granola for a thank you gift.
It was hard not to eat it all! I used this recipe I found on Peanut Butter Fingers but modified a few things. I added some almonds, chocolate chips, more oats and more peanut butter to make a little more. I also drizzled it with about a tablespoon of melted coconut butter before baking. It was delicious!
Of coarse I had a helper in the kitchen today. I remember when I was a kid and I would get to lick the cake batter, cookie dough or brownie batter off the spatula. Ha! The love nugget gets hummus!
And he loved it! You should have seen when I took it away 🙂
As I mentioned earlier, the love nugget and I went to the hubbies work to pick him up and go to lunch. We brought along a little father’s day gift.
We gave it to him today mainly because it was full of candy and I wanted him to have it in his office. That way I wouldn’t be tempted to eat any 🙂 He
loves hates it when I give him candy!
The flower pot was super easy to make. Here’s what we did.
and the love nugget and I painted it using some paint I had on hand.
Well… he pounded, I painted 🙂
Then I cut out a tie using my Cricut and the love nugget
smeared painted his hand print. Finished it up with a little puff paint and viola!
We also bought the hubby a spiffy new outfit for a wedding we are going to tomorrow and a little something else he’ll get on Sunday 🙂
For lunch we went to a restaurant called Brookestone. The hubby says that he always gets steak and eggs. Kind of a strange lunch but he justifies it by saying its full of protein! Whatever floats your boat dude!
I had a Mediterranean salad with grilled chicken.
It was okay. I’m just so darn picky about my food and have such a hard time eating out.
After lunch I realized that we would be driving right by my favorite frozen yogurt spot, Pinkberry. The love nugget has never experienced the goodness of the pink palace so we made a pit stop. I ordered half strawberry, half mango topped with coconut and dark chocolate chips.
It was so tasty and refreshing on such a hot day. Someone else really enjoyed it too 🙂
He sat patiently waiting for a few bites. So cute! We had a nice little yogurt date my love nugget and I 🙂
It is such a hot day today and is supposed to be over 100 tomorrow! Yikes! The hubby and I are getting up early and heading out for an 9 mile run. With the love nugget! This will be the longest run we’ve done with him so hopefully he will be nice and content the whole ride. He usually is 🙂
Anything fun planned for this Father’s day weekend?
We’ve got a wedding tomorrow then we are spending some time with family for Father’s Day. Looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend.
