Once again, I’m a little late in posting my weekend shenanigans. Better late than never, right?? I need to get better at transferring the pictures from the phone to the blog. I always plan out the post in my head, but never have time to follow through the way I want to.
So this past weeekend was supposed to be a productive weekend. We didn’t have anything planned, but I did have a few very important things on my To Do List. (Taxes being one of them!!)
But as always happens, if there are things I don’t want to do, I will find a way to put them off. On Saturday morning, I thought waffles were a great way to procrastinate…. These are Protein Oat Waffles.
Don’t get excited and ask me for a recipe. Even though they look pretty, it was a HUGE waffle fail!! I found a recipe for pancakes made with oats. You were supposed to put the oats in a food processor to make them into a fine flour. I skipped that part thinking it wouldn’t matter. Oh, it mattered!! That step was in there for a reason.
I, of course, still ate mine after I smothered peanut butter all over it. But the hubs and the kids weren’t too crazy about the consistency. Oh well. Back to the waffle drawing board.
For lunch, I made a hard boiled egg wrap in a Flat Out.
Have you tried these Flat Outs? I love them!!
Eventually I ended up taking care of my chores. And to celebrate, Hubby and I went out for a date night. Well, a ‘Not Quite Date Night’. We ventured down the street to a neat little place called Double Dogs.
We had to take one kid with us. The other kid was spending the night at my Mom’s house. She prefers to keep them one at a time.
And a date night with a little person is not quite a date night.
And it meant we had to share our fried pickles with her.
And then we had to deal with her fits. She is definitely a two-year old!
But my California Buffalo Burger was delicious. Here’s the description: A low-fat Buffalo burger patty topped with fresh spinach, tomatoes, red onion, Dijon mustard, our signature lime sour cream and Provolone cheese.
And I shared my fries with the little one.
On Sunday I was able to get the taxes prepared, filed and put away!! Yay. That’s always a chore I hate doing. Even if we do get a little money back, I still wait til the last minute to do it because I hate the process so much!!
That was what was Marvelous in my Monday …. even though now it’s actually Thursday. Oops.
Question of the Day: What chores do you hate doing that you put off??
