This weekend I…
…Made Kim’s Craving “Easy Peasy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies“- that’s a mouthfull. I’ve made these cookies before, and once again I remembered exactly how irresistible they are. I used rolled oats instead of quick oats and only a 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips. I honestly don’t know if any more chips would’ve fit!
…Attempted dark chocolate coins. I did a coconut oil / cocoa powder / stevia thing based off a recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. Here is where I tell you I do not love these and I am wondering if I will make myself “enjoy” all 12 simply because I hate food waste.
…Walked the dog- or maybe I should say she walked me?
…Went on a double date with my good friend Kelly and her boyfriend. It is so good to hang with other couples our age!
…Put in some time at the gym. Getting to the gym on the weekends is hard for me. I go to my school’s gym on the week days no problem, but driving there just to go to the gym is harder. Yet, I know I will get a such better work out in than if I just “did something at home”.
…Went to church and then ate lunch at O’Charley’s with a very special family in our church. I had the California chicken salad. The salad was great (currently have a thing for blue cheese) and the company was better.
….Food prepped- I am doing a post tomorrow on how food prep went last week. In short, I found that it was totally worth it. However, not having a dish washer is a huge drawback here. So many dishes.
Watched our teens “take over” the Sunday night service. I am so proud of our youth group and I know my husband’s heart was beaming as his kids took turns leading worship- they sang, played instruments, performed a skit, and preached. … Completed lots of homework… got to stay on top of things!
… Ate this delicious single serving oatmeal pancake. It is one of my very favorite go-to breakfasts thanks to its simplicity and its ability to keep me full. Mix together well 1 egg + 1 egg white + 1/3 cup rolled oats + lots of cinnamon. Cook on medium heat for ~2 minutes, flip it, cook for ~1 minute and wah-lah. Pancake.
Now, tell me-
What did you do this past weekend? Best thing you ate? Best thing you saw? Best thing you heard?
