Thankful.

I painted this a while ago.

It was an inspired painting, I guess you could say.

Usually I just paint to play around and have fun.

But I was feeling rather thankful and just felt like I had to paint it.



And I am thankful.

Pita Bread.

Yesterday I was hungry for gyros. But we didn't really have the ingredients.

No pita bread, no cucumbers, no lamb, no Greek yogurt...

So, I improvised and made what I could.

I made pita bread- It was really fun, kinda easy and very tasty.

as for the other stuff- I substituted- I used leftover roast beef, kefir and goat cheese. and I skipped the cucumber.

This is the recipe I used for the pita bread- "Homemade Rustic Pita Bread."


although I used mostly whole wheat and added minced garlic.


It was a quite delicious supper if I do say so myself.

I plan on making them again.

Daisy-Flower Popcorn.

This is she.

Daisy-Flower Popcorn.


She is our bottle fed baby. Bottle fed babies are special because like any life form- you become attached to your mommy. and since we are the feeders, we get to be the mommy.

My timer picture. :) Everybody else was kinda busy so I decided to take our own picture. It was kinda awkward though because I had to kneel down in the mud. But that was kinda fun too. :)


Megan named her Daisy-Flower. Now Daisy is a bit of a rerun name, but since it was Megan's naming job it is excusable. :) But I added the popcorn. Just 'cause I liked it.

Saturday's Breakfast.

Strawberry - Kiwi


Our family has decided to go on a weight loss challenge. I am aiming on losing 10lbs. and I am not sure what everybody elses goals are.

but I like sugar a lot. So I have been dreaming up healthy yet delicous desserts.

This is the only one so far... but I will keep you posted.

Pretty.


What makes it healthy? Actually it still has sugar. And it has fat. But not a whole lot of both and it has fruit too! So that makes it like 10 times better for you. ;)


But anyhow...

The crust is a sugar cookie recipe with almost all whole wheat.

The frosting is a light glaze made with neufch√Ętel cheese ( instead of cream cheese.)


and of course there is fruit on top. :)


so it's healthy- right?
