Blur

My day today has been a whirlwind.  Just got back from the post office and mailed out a very special package.


And my weekend was a total blur!

It started off on Friday afternoon by going to the mall

I posted about my Girly Trip

MY OTHER RECIPES

and my Whoo-Whoo sightings

Saturday I baked and packed

Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

And Sunday I ran around like a crazy woman getting ready for my trip

I ventured into the grocery store and stocked up on food for Scott and Skylar.

Because I’m sure that otherwise they’d starve to death in the 48 hours I am going to be gone if I hadn’t done so.

Cherries were on sale.  I love, love, love cherries!

I could most of that bag in a sitting.  Fiber much?

I picked up a watermelon from TJ’s

The past half dozen watermelons I’ve bought have been outstanding…

…But the one I bought on Sunday is just meh.  A little mushy and overripe.  Edible just not perfect.

Good thing I made up for it with a fresh salad.

And Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

Think you “don’t like tofu” or having trouble perfecting the way you’re making it?

This should help: Tofu Preparation & Cooking Tips

And for dinners for the next few nights when Scott and Skylar are fending for themselves, I made them a Cheesy Taco Casserole

Scott can handle nuking a few pieces of this for he and Skylar.   That way they’ll have more to eat than raw broccoli, cherries, and mushy watermelon.

And they won’t raid the goodie stash, too much. 

But as I mentioned, I always have a freezer full of treats.

Like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & Marshmallow Stuffed Rice Krispie Bars

From my last post, Whoo Whoo, sounds like there are some major Anthro fans.   Now if only someone could help us out with say an unlimited budget shopping spree, I’d be a very happy girl!
And it seems many of you are into animal-themed items.  Fun to hear about what you collect and like.

Questions:

1. Best thing you ate or did over the weekend?

I am standing by my answer in #3 here.  The footrub, backrub, and time with Scott and Skylar, just those 20 minutes, was the true highlight of my weekend.  Trips to the mall and fresh cherries are nice, but being with the fam is the best.  I’m going to miss them!

2. Do your weekends seem to go by in a blur?

Mine sure do!  Even though I work weekends, and they really aren’t that different than Tuesdays for instance, for some reason my Saturdays and Sundays just evaporate.  I pack a lot into each day and Scott will take Skylar for a few hours so I can turbo through my errands and chores, cooking project, photography shoots, or whatever else I need dedicated and focused time to accomplish.  But boy, the time just goes.by.so.fast!

Thanks for the entries on the Healthy Cookie & Brownie Giveaway!

See you from BoulderOr from an airport for some airport blogging.

  1. Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies are the big winner for this past weekends recipe & yes, even though I get 3 days off per week, it always seems to go by in a blur.

  2. Not only do my weekends pass by in a blur … my whole summer seems to be going that way too.
