Hi friends! Hope you all had a fantastic long holiday weekend.
Saturday morning before hot yoga I had a modified breakfast cookie. I used premade granola instead of oats and mixins, and I hadn’t thought to make it the night before. I mashed half a banana with protein powder then stirred in the granola. It didn’t need anything else added!
Definitely more moist than a typical “cookie”, but sweet and delicious! After yoga I was headed for some outlet shopping (and damage was dont but the deals were INSANE), and I stopped at Einstein’s Bagels to grab a quick snack – I’m always STARVING after hot yoga.
More red white and blue eats – a yogurt parfait. I usually buy fat free unsweetened yogurt, so the vanilla yogurt used in this tasted like a real treat.
Saturday night my dad was making lasagna and I had some leftover lentils from my sloppy joes, so I made a baked lentil casserole with some of his sauce, ricotta, and some parmesan on top.
Remember how this happened on Friday? It inspired a major shoe reorganization. I threw out 2 pairs, decided to donate 4 pairs, and will try to sell 3 pairs to Plato’s Closet. I think I might also return 2 of the 4 I bought on Friday since they’re PRETTY similar to some I already have.
Sunday’s breakfast was blueberry GB flour pancakes with strawberry syrup. Sweet and filling!
Yesterday afternoon we enjoyed time with my family and our neighbors at a small cookout gathering. I brought a dessert inspired by this masterpiece. Stay tuned for that post!
Pittsburghers are notorious for loving fireworks, and my dad is no different. We watched downtown’s big show, then our local community’s fireworks, and then more of the NYC fireworks on TV when we got home!
Instead of taking pictures yesterday (which I had hoped to), I just enjoyed each moment. It was nice for a change!
What was the best part of your holiday weekend?
