Technically, it’s still winter, but you would never know it by the temperature! In the 60s today! I slept in this morning until a little after 7 and got up to make something you have not seen in a while:
Triple stack! Didn’t make waffles out of this mix! So good. Still seems like less than when I put the same amount in the waffle iron. Go figure.
** Of note for those that like pancakes – Kodiak Cakes at a sale price of $14.95 in my Open Sky shop for the next couple days, which includes 2 boxes of pancake/waffle mix and a bottle of natural raspberry syrup. You can also save 10% with the code THANKS at checkout!
Working my last day of the week today. Yay! It’s going to be a glorious next couple of days, too 😀
Lunch break was greek yogurt, protein powder, 1/4 cup of pumpkin, spice, and the rest of my choco protein granola.
Interesting combo, I have to say. Not sure chocolate and pumpkin go together all that well…
John made me a latte snack today paired with a couple squares of Extra Dark with pomegranate!
Then it was hooky time! It was 61 degrees, so we got on the bikes and took a nice ride. Did about 15 miles in a little over an hour. The bike trail is clear now, so we got on that today!
No snow! Another sign of spring is this along the bike path:
All the seasonal shops are opening in a couple weeks. Also, our favorite spot on the bike path has yogurt again! They stop selling it in winter. That might be on the agenda for Saturday! We are going to bike to Lake George that day. 30 miles… hope I am ready.
Today’s ride was an average speed of 12.4 mph and a top speed of 19.4! Woo Hoo! My thighs were burning a little bit, though. Good workout.
Got home just in time to start dinner I made a shrimp and broccoli stir fry using a sesame ginger sauce. It’s the organic store brand at Price Chopper, and it is very, very good.
Very, very good. That’s a pear dusted with cinnamon. As I said before, I put cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice in pretty much everything! I just love the taste. Here are some interesting facts about cinnamon to tie into National Nutrition Month:
- Cinnamon has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels.
- Cinnamon also may be linked to lowering cholesterol.
- Cinnamon is naturally antimicrobial.
- Cinnamon may help with digestion.
Pretty good for a sweet little spice!
Question: What do you put cinnamon on (or in)?
