Good morning friends! Happy Sunday!
The boys and I slept in today. It was a first. It probably won’t happen again for at least 5 more years, but it was glorious.
Judah had big plans to play his video game until Mama was ready to get up.
The STUFT Gratitude List
So, I’ve been wanting start a family gratitude list for awhile. The idea came from One Thousand Gifts (that I’m currently reading- slowly, but surely).
Every night before bed we talk about what we’re thankful for. I decided it was time to write them down as a family.
Our goal is to get to one thousand.
We did the church thing last night wearing only our finest new clothes from Old Navy.
Pirate shirts, a nose picker and a prayer- church perfection, no?
When we sat down for dinner later I got out the book and explained the plan to the family.
(Free book from LEGOLAND. Anything will work.)
We started our list.
Nothing too exciting for the first night, but since we can’t do the same “gifts”, I’m expecting some really great things to come. And I’m really not sure if STUFT Daddy’s was sarcasm or not. I attempted a zucchini crust pizza last night.
It wasn’t too bad, but I need to try it again before I post any kind of recipe. I made the standard supreme homemade pizza for Andrew and some cheese pizza for the boys.
For some reason they didn’t want to try my zucchini crust and I didn’t feel like fighting it. Once it’s perfected though, they better watch out. Ha.
I think I’m adjusting to the no sugar thing. I did not adjust very well to not having kabocha squash for a couple days though, so I broke down and had to buy a few.
Lately I’ve been roasting it with a little coconut oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, dark cocoa powder, cloves and sometimes some all spice in there. It makes the house smell delightful.
I miss mochas. I was especially missing one this morning.
Here you go.
STUFT Detox Mocha
brewed espresso (or prepared instant espresso)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/3-1/2 ripe banana
sprinkle of cinnamon
splash of vanilla (optional)
Brew the espresso. Add the espresso to the cocoa powder.
Heat up the banana until it gets a little mushy and has more liquid.
Mush it up.
Whisk it together with the hot almond milk. I just microwaved the milk and used my handheld milk frother.
Add the milk banana mix to the chocolate espresso and viola.
Also very important is that it’s in a cute mug. You won’t even miss the sugar free syrup that way. Ha ha.
Also on my gratitude list this morning from my picture taking outside just because:
These kabocha squash seeds from the great Casey.
The best hubby in the world that already got them started for me.
(Having my own kabocha would be like a dream come true.)
My other plants that he planted for me and are doing mighty well.
And, well, these two cute guys that I get to spend the rest of the day with. I’m started to really appreciate and take advantage of these race free Sundays.
I’m going to make them some banana pancakes and then we’re headed to the gym for a little spinning action.
Enjoy your day!
What’s on your gratitude list this morning?
