Sunday stuff! (or fun in the park and a little bit of food prep)

Hello, hello!

I know I said I was back last week but, apparently, I wasn’t ready. I needed a little bit more time to focus inward and just be.

It was definitely a needed break!

What really made things better was having Thing 1 come home for a few days.

It was really nice to have her home. I mean, the last time I saw her was in May!!

We hung out, we went shopping, we dined onΒ Chipotle….. #winning

We also went out for a little photo shoot in the park with our favorite photographer. ❀

More pictures to come later!

Oh, look, there’s a wall over there! I must practice my handstands! #crossfitaddict

There may or may not have also been some planking and some push ups. πŸ™‚

Then, I got down to business with my Sunday food prep.

Which, honestly, wasn’t as much as normal. Β There’s some travelling going on this week and a little bit of extra time at home (don’t forget to thank a veteran!) so I didn’t need as much prepared food in the fridge.

I do, however, need to go to the grocery store because I went to make some quinoa for quick, healthy breakfasts and the box was pretty darned empty. 😦

I only got enough quinoa to try this recipe once this week.

Then, I made a loaf of sandwich bread, perfect for toast and, well, sandwiches. πŸ˜‰

Apparently, the yeast were (hyper)active and the bread hit a growth spurt in the oven. #milehighbread

Then, for dinner, I was craving some comfort food so I made some Skinny Shepherd’s Pie. YUM!

The best part is the leftovers!

And today, there’s aΒ pork butt in my crockpot and its destiny is toΒ become carnitas tacos for dinner. Stay tuned for the recipe!

So, want to know what happens when you take a little bit of time off from blogging?

180 spam comments in the queue, that’s what.

180.

One hundred. And. Eighty.

Seriously.

The best one?

“staples”

Really. That’s all the comment was.

Maybe they thought my Cinnamon Buns should be a staple in all households?

Well, that spam bot is right! πŸ˜‰

Talk to me: What’s your favorite way to useΒ quinoa? What’s your favorite comfort food?
