I was SO busy having fun this weekend that I completely ignored the Internet…how great is that to do once in a while?!
Matthew left, I went in the sauna, Joe and I watched a few episodes of Weeds, Mom and I went on a walk, and I’m now procrastinating! This is why I like to get up early and do work before the day starts—once things start to happen, there’s no telling where my attention will go! I have several things I must do before midnight (some of my classes’ weeks end on Sunday night and I have to post wrap-ups and also Monday’s content)…I hope I start soon!
Last night, Matthew spent the night (across the street) with my Mom, and I went to dinner with a friend at Red Dove in Geneva—Ali and I both got the same thing, and it was really awesome. I wanted one of the sandwiches they had, and also a salad, but since I don’t eat bread/gluten, I asked them to take the contents of the sandwich and put it with the salad…it worked and it was perfect! I dislike asking to modify things on a menu (and rarely do it), but I’m glad I did, and I hope they didn’t spit in my food because I tailored my order! (I doubt they did—they seem really nice there)
In my procrastination efforts this evening, I had big plans for the kitchen, but when I looked around at what I had on hand (and the likelihood of my vision turning out well), I went with my standby—-coconut cream based ice cream. This time….peanut butter!
Peanut Butter Ice Cream
Low carb, no dairy….no guilt! In fact, eat it for breakfast!
8oz container of coconut cream, refrigerated (I use WIlderness Family Naturals 8.45 ounce container–you can try this with a can of coconut milk too, just make sure to refrigerate it overnight and when you open it, pour the liquid off the top)
1 tsp liquid stevia (vanilla)
2 Tbsp Peanut butter powder (you could try regular smooth peanut butter too—I’m betting it would work!)
With hand mixer, blend all ingredients until smooth. Then freeze in small blobs.
How was your weekend?
Do you ask for modifications to what you order in restaurants?
For people without kids….when kids come into your space, how do you deal with the destruction and messes they cause?! I totally understand now why my Dad would lecture us that “the couch is not a gymnasium!” ….This weekend, I almost said something along the lines of: I paid hard-earned money for that stuff you’re ruining and putting your grubby feet on! (I stopped myself)
Review of Chocholistic chocolates (tomorrow) and a giveaway of My Favorite Things (very soon)! ….So far on my giveaway list I have my favorite peanut butter, coconut cream, Finger Lakes Roasters coffee, and I want to add a few more to make it worth it.
