This was actually last night’s post that I worked on in Scribefire. For some reason it did not post.
It is so nice to have a day off! I am preparing for my lovely vacation break next week. You know a test run, hey you wouldn’t buy a car without a test drive, right? So why have a break from work with out a “test break”??
Look at what I had waiting for me when I arrived home Sunday night! I didn’t open them until Monday afternoon since we were late getting home and I had to unpack, wash, take a bath, etc.
Terri Jo over at Amazing Grass was so generous as to send me some of their products to try out! I am super excited, I love to try new things 🙂 I will be packing some of the items for today’s journey!
I started off my morning with a lovely bowl of oats. I decided to try a little something new this morning. You see I was attempting to make a chocolate “pudding” with silken tofu Sunday afternoon (epic fail). It tastes great just not “pudding consistency”! So I placed it in the fridge and decided to use it to mix in with my smoothies. Perfect protein 🙂
The oasts started off with the same as usual, but instead of just almond milk I added in the silken tofu mixture with my water. I also omitted the banana since the tofu has a little chocolate and honey in it. It was okay but not as sweet as I thought it would be. I then topped it with some coconut butter and cranberries. No peanut butter this morning – that is coming a little later.
I started the day off with a trip to Target to make a purchase……
Yes, I did need these today even with all the glorious sun! You see it rained all day yesterday – I mean all day!
My next stop was for an iced English toffee coffee with soy…
To go along with my whole energy food bar from amazing grass. I loved the bar. It was made with lots of healthy organic ingredients, not to sweet, and was just the right thing for a morning snack!!
I spent the day with my son on a field trip 🙂 We visited a farm today! I grew up in prime dairy country, and I have said before that my parents always had a garden 🙂 My son however did not have the same experience.
So what did we learn about today?
- Dairy vs. Beef Cattle
- Honey Bees
The farmer talked to the kids about the names used for the animals depending on if the animal is a baby, female, male, how to care for them, interesting facts about the animals, etc. It was a very informative field trip, a wonderful learning experience!
The teachers had to kiss a pig!!
The students were allowed to pick cotton
It was a great trip~!
