Im soooooo sorry that I have been a bit absent. This weekend was my mom's birthday as well as Thanksgiving weekend so I was swamped!
Mom's birthday went well. It was a Mexican Fiesta with a taco bar. Not too much to it. As it turns out, this was my mom's first birthday party. She's a lovely lady (a bit off her rocker LOL) and she felt so blessed to have the people she loves together.
I need to do things like that for her more often!
Im needing to recap and make up for the days last week that I missed. I'd like to share my "Thoughts on Thursday" and some "Fashionable Friday" ideas with you.
I'll start with my favorite morning pick-me-up...
Energizing Oatmeal Pancakes...
I ate these daily when I was training
(for about five weeks)
and I never once wished for anything else. I'd even look forward to sleeping because
I knew I'd get to wake up to these :)
Ingredients (one serving)
*6 egg whites
*1 packet raw sugar or stevia
Mix all ingredients in mixing bowl and cook over medium heat. Mine usually take about 2 minutes/side. I top with spray butter and pure maple syrup.
OH THE SIMPLICITY.
These are amazingly versatile! Some of my favorite variations are :
- 2T peanut butter either in the mix or spread on top
- fresh blueberries or muddled strawberries in the mix
- pumpkin butter and syrup on top
The possibilities are endless. Let me know if you create a variation to share...
I'd love to hear it!
