Just got off the treadmill. Did an easy pace 9 miles while watching Failure to Launch. I’m starting to like this whole workout first thing in the morning thing because it doesn’t give you any time to really think about it.
And then you get coffee and yummy breakfast afterwards.
I’m actually currently sitting here pretty darn sweaty while some kabocha is roasting and some green STUFT CHO muffins are baking for the boys. Nice.
Did you know it’s National Coffee Day?
I think Starbucks is giving away free samples of a new flavor or something all day. Might be worth checking out.
We’re going to do our best to stay at home all day, so we’ll celebrate here.
I’m letting the boys stay in their pajamas too. It’s just a coffee drinking, pajama wearing, staying at home kind of a day.
Things are going wacky with my computer, so I don’t have pictures of some fun things I want to share from the weekend. Beavis.
But, I do have before and after shots of the boys and their new haircuts.
Hey- pajamas in both pictures. Lovely.
Can you name the movie character that Joaquin looks like post haircut. It starts with an L.
Since I haven’t been adding sugar free syrups to my mochas lately I thought I’d share the new way I’m making them in honor of the National holiday and all.
Here it is.
The New Unsweetened Mocha
brewed espresso (Starbucks is my favorite and I brew it in my stovetop espresso maker)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
1-2 teaspoons coconut oil
splash vanilla or almond extract (my new favorite is Penzeys Mexican Vanilla Extract)
cinnamon (Penzeys is THE BEST)
I brew the espresso and mix it with everything but the milk. Lately I’ve just been heating the milk in the microwave and then using my little hand frother to froth the milk. It’s been working quite well if I do say so myself.
My other favorite mocha as of late is this STUFT Detox Mocha. It’s a good one that uses a ripe banana as sweetener. And that recipe has all the steps with the frother and all.
Speaking of that particular post, those seeds that we planted back then and the teeny tiny kabocha we got from them…..
I roasted that mini kabocha yesterday.
I couldn’t even eat it. It did NOT taste good. How disappointing huh?
Maybe size does matter. Ha ha.
Okay, gotta get out of these sweaty clothes and check on what we’ve got going on in the oven.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Are you celebrating National Coffee Day?
Anyone want to have a pajama day with us?
