I did make it until 11:30 last night - then I was knocked out so fast! I noticed the other day I had some questions on my comments and wanted to address them really quick.
How do you find living with your folks? I don't mind it too much. I get along great with Mommasita, so we never have any problems there. We always say if we only had to live and cook for each other, life would be a piece of cake. :) It is hard from time to time because I am an adult, and sometimes the parental units can forget that. However, I do not pay rent, they pay for my groceries, and put a roof over my head. I find because they have been so graceful to let me live here while FH and I saved up money for our home and through renovating it that I should be respectful and follow their rules. It is only fair!
Now that you are "off" for the summer, how do you find your daily and morning routine different from when you teach during the school year? I am a lot less tired - haha. I go to bed later, but tend to wake up still around 6 or 6:30 in the morning no matter what. During the school year, I get up around 5. My breakfasts are the same, just at different times. I am able to eat more throughout the day as I please, which I love :) During the school year, I run after school with friends. During the summer, I run mid-morning after my food digests. This summer is a little different with planning the wedding and renovating the house, but I have a loooot of free time to cook and bake, which I do not have time for during the school year most times. I love being a teacher - I could never imagine doing anything different. I also cannot believe some people have to work during the summer - YUCK!
I started my morning off right with a bowl of whipped banana oats! These were a little dry, probably because the banana was not as ripe as I usually like. This was topped with cinnamon, flax, bloobs, and peanut butter. Yum!
dry, but delicious
The bar was soft, chewy, and really did taste like an apple pie. I usually go for bars that have the crunch factor, but I can imagine this would be absolutely delicious if frozen for a while. In fact, I just left my computer to go put one in the freezer. :)
I haven't tried it yet, but probably will have some with my nighttime snack. I have never had sunflower seed butter before, but I am sure (just like all other nut butters) I will enjoy it immensely. I love looking forward to something new!
Can you even believe that after 4 days I have gotten the kids into a routine of having "rest time" after lunch? They are peacefully watching Enchanted right now on the TV so Auntie Chelsey can have alone time. LOVE IT!!!
Question: What food product have you recently tried that you love? What do you want to try soon that you have been meaning to?
