Hey everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was nice Got to hang out with Delilah who gets funnier every day. It’s crazy how smart and funny this kid is. Didn’t get pics though, sorry! Funny thing that did happen was I walked into my brother’s house and wandered into the living room looking for everyone and there was a big bunny house thing in the corner! The cutest bunny was in there and I was so confused and excited because I love bunnies but never heard anything about them getting one. They are pet sitting the bunny for the week. He is so freaking cute!
Before I get into what I did today, I totally forgot to tell you guys last week that my trainer no longer works for my gym I’m super sad about this because we had a really good rapport and I am not really interested in training with anyone else there. I’m kind of trying to figure out what to do. I’m thinking I may join a different gym that has classes so I can get different workouts without having to pay for a trainer. I have a gym in mind and the funny thing is that one of my former trainers heads up the personal training there and he is an AMAZING trainer so when I’m ready to get back into the personal training I’d be so happy to have him training me again!
So today I would normally go grocery shopping but I still have plenty of stuff from last week so I spent the day in and did a little cooking. Here’s what I made!
This first yummy summer treat even looks pretty waiting to be blended.
I finally got to try the Strawberry Watermelon Slushie I mentioned in a Fun Friday post a while back. It was just as delicious as I imagined it would be Very refreshing!
I also finally got to make the buckwheat pancakes I’ve been meaning to make. I used this recipe but instead of poppy seeds I added blueberries because that’s all I had. They taste pretty good but next time I’ll probably use a cup of oat flour and a half cup of buckwheat flour. I’m still getting used to the taste of buckwheat so this was a little overpowering but they are still pretty tasty. The batter was very thick too and I didn’t know if that is normal since I rarely ever make pancakes.
Finally, on the heels of my gift themed Fun Friday post, I have some pretty new cupcakes to show you! Another year has passed and the same friend that received the pretty pink cupcakes in my header is the birthday girl again. I decided to try and make a two color swirled look and for the three you see here in front it worked out pretty well. I need to perfect my frosting transfer to piping bag since the first three cupcakes came out pretty much all pink. Oh well. I added some of the glitter flakes to these as well for a little extra sparkle I’ll be dropping off these cupcakes this evening with a bottle of wine for her to enjoy!
Finally, for all of my fellow seasonal allergy sufferers, did you know that what you eat can exacerbate symptoms? Apparently there are certain foods that can cross react because of allergenic proteins and cause you to have oral allergy symptoms? Read about it here, here, here, and here. Interesting huh? I’m still having a hard time with allergies even though I’ve been taking my antihistamine. It’s getting annoying lol.
That’s all I’ve got for today. I hope that your Monday has treated you well! I’m hoping to pop in again sometimes before Friday Have a great week if I don’t!
