Productive Sunday

Well today has been so productive already and it’s only the early afternoon! I love that. James didn’t have to go into work until noon today so we took the opportunity to go to Trader Joes to get our weekly grocery shopping out of the way!

Then, once James was off to work, Toby and I ventured over to get my oil changed (which came with a free tire rotation!). While I waited the 30 minutes to get my oil changed, Toby and I went for a walk and I read more of my book, The Glass Castle. I like using little opportunities like a 30 minute wait to get some more movement into my day. Plus Toby appreciated the exercise. We’re not the only ones that need daily exercise!

Then I came home and made some Kalamata Garlic Hummus! So simple. Just a can of chick peas, a clove of garlic and 5-6 kalamata olives in oil.

And I put my yummy mixture into a re-purposed container from some store bought hummus. Aren’t you proud Pretty Green Girl?

Don’t be confused. It’s not Moroccan Hummus. Although that Moroccan hummus was delicious…

And next on my agenda was to make a little treat for my padre since his birthday is coming up! (Don’t worry..he doesn’t read the blog! Still isn’t a big fan of computers ;) )

Poor padre is allergic to chocolate! So I decided to look toward the baking guru, Veggie Girl, to make him some of her infamous blondies!

What’s so great about these blondies, is they are basically a blank slate waiting for you to make them your own. To mine, I added some cinnamon and almonds.

And some chocolate chips in one corner for James since I knew I wouldn’t be able to send all of these to my dad.

YUM!

And putting it on wax paper to bake made it SO much easier to take out. James loved these. Hopefully my dad does too :)

 

Okay now a little cuteness factor:

He was laying in bed when James was trying to make the bed so he was just made up in it. We thought this would make him want to get out. But nope. He was quite comfy.

James and I have a “date” later to do a deep clean on the apartment. Actually cleaning sucks but afterward it feels SO nice to be in a clean apartment! So that’s something to look forward to :)

My goal this week is to make some kale smoothies!! My energy level has been lagging and I’m hoping that those will give me an extra punch that other bloggers have experienced.

What’s your goal this week?
