It’s true. Sundays are my absolute favorite day of the week 🙂
I’m not sure why…they just seem to be the most relaxing and laid back day of the week!
My Sunday started out with a cup of green tea and lazing around.
I lazed around a little too much and consequentially had to speed through my yoga routine to stay on schedule! 45 minute practice reduced to 30 minutes. Score!
After a 10 minute shower and some quick getting ready, I helped myself to a bowl of overnight oats!
These oats were prepared my favorite way: soaked in water, with salt, cinnamon and honey overnight. Then mixed with PB, more cinnamon and heated up in the microwave! I topped the warm, nutty oats with a sliced banana and uhm more cinnamon.
What are the consequences of consuming too much cinnamon? Never mind, don’t tell me.
Next, I went to church and caught up with Halle over a cup of honey ginseng green tea. Then I came home and did some stuff around the house before an awesome lunch…
YUM! This was super easy. I spread hummus on a whole wheat tortilla and topped it with sliced avocado, hot scrambled eggs and tabasco!
Just so we’re clear, I am not the biggest egg lover…but I will eat almost anything wrapped in a tortilla with hummus, hot sauce and avacado 😀
All the girls in my sorority were coming back and moving in today so I had a blast catching up with everyone. After lunch, I worked on scholarships and finished my last Christmas (yes…still finishing Christmas 2012 in almost February 2013…Lord help me) painting for my dear friend Lauren!
It kind of looks like I ran out of paint and used ketchup and mustard doesn’t it? But I was happy with how it turned out!
In between all that scholarship filling and painting I did get hit hard with an urge to bake.
Problem: we have no oven.
Well, okay, we do. But it is a large, scary industrial one and I would most likely burn down the city so I opted for a no bake cookie instead.
LOVED these. Are they pretty? Not really…. Do they resemble poop? Yes definitely. But I still love them!
I mixed a mashed banana with dark chocolate chips and heated it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then I added 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 cup crushed chex cereal, and 5 crushed pretzels to the mix! After some intense stirring, a little salt, a little honey and a few more chocolate chips, I rolled the thick mixture into little balls.
PRESTO! Salty, PB, No bake cookie balls!
If that doesn’t make your Sunday a Fun day I’m afraid I can’t help you.
I’m off to have dinner with Lauren and Hal Gal 🙂
Have a great night everyone!
