My kitchen has been a little boring this month. After my eye surgery, I couldn’t see well, so Terry did most of the shopping & cooking. Once I started recovering from the surgery, I got hit with a nasty cold. On the bright side, why not get all of the crappy things done at once, right?? I must be good for the rest of the year 😉
In my kitchen, there have been some failures…
These are supposed to be pancakes. I am epically bad at making them, so I thought I’d cheat and buy a package mix… apparently not even that can save me haha.
Heart shaped things:
Flowers from a certain husband who looooooves me =D
note to self – do not be bummed if there are no valentine’s day gifts as he prefers to do cute things on non-special days throughout the year
Bored puppies from lack of walking and adventuring:
Takeout pizza to celebrate National Pizza Day (Feb 9) , complete with matching socks!
And some fun things:
Coconut water to hyper-hydrate after my eye surgery. Canned soups and mini oranges during the cold. Fun, new yogurt my husband picked up (he clearly missed the memo about getting the plain, unsweetened kind I normally get). The BEST sundried tomatoes in the whole world found at our local Farmer’s Market. Vegan, gluten-free pepperoni pizza (another find while Terry was shopping… amazing how these things don’t make it home when I shop haha). And some new breakfast porridge! I originally bought this as it comes in individual little packages and is “quick cook” and I wanted to bring some with me when I visited mom. As it turns out, this stuff is *really* good. I was not expecting much, but it has become a favourite staple in our kitchen. I cook it in almond milk instead of water and add a bit of maple syrup, cocoa powder, almond butter and fresh fruit. It’s ready in under 5 minutes and is the bomb. Go find some!
Outside of my kitchen…
My face after the one workout I got in between the all clear from my eye doctor to finally get back to exercising and getting a cold. Ah well, such is life 😉
What’s in our kitchen??? Anything I should try out?
