Good workout today. Still a little cold on the way home and I was ready for some coffee and steel cut oats that I soaked overnight.
I used 1/3 of a banana mashed into the cooking water, then I sliced the rest and sauteed in a little butter and cinnamon. You must do this. So very good! Plus a drizzle of coconut butter on top. I was a super happy camper eating this morning
Just a wonderful gorgeous day today. We even had to mow the lawn for the first time.
That’s pretty much all of our lawn right there. Only a strip down the side of the house. It takes 10 minutes to mow.
Lunch was some leftover souffle with a pear.
So good. I told John I want souffles all the time now.
Pixie just doesn’t know what she is missing with not eating people food.
She looks like she cares, right?
Work slowed up, so I went out to take some pictures of this week’s tulips. These are some kind of apricot ones. I really need to write down the names of the ones I get LOL.
The pretty inside:
I have 2 groupings of this color:
There are a bunch more buds on the other tulips as well. I thought I had planted some daffodils, but maybe the squirrels got them.
Then John and I took a ride for some frozen yogurt!
I didn’t even need to put on my hat today after taking off my helmet. Lucky me.
It was fairly windy out today. Guess that is what is pushing in the warmer air. 16 miles of biking today!
Tonight’s dinner was more leftovers. I have to say that I am about ready for some meat! John made a shrimp poboy for dinner and I really wanted one. Instead, I cooked up a yukon gold potato and put some of the palak chole over it.
Pretty good. Getting a good carb load for a longer ride tomorrow. We need to build a better base before increasing mileage. We jumped from 45 to 66 miles and that was a bit much. Tomorrow will be in the 40 to 50 mile range.
Sunday is bagel day with my mom for Mother’s Day! See you on the flip side of the weekend!
Question: Are you a leftover lover?
