Hope you all had a very good weekend. Mine was quite nice. It all goes too fast, though. I won the football picks for the week – so all is supreme in the land of Lori! I did fix John breakfast this morning because I felt bad about gloating, which is quite unusual (the cooking breakfast part, not the gloating). I made pumpkin custard oats for both of us!
Mine was topped with some of that lovely maple cream. My goal was to eat gluten free today.
John got some molasses cooked in with his and pecans on top with maple cream. Libby’s better get on the ball. I have 1 hoarded can of pumpkin left.
Did you know that almond milk can go bad? I did not. I opened up an almond milk that we bought yesterday a month before its expiration date. This is what it looks like. This was supposed to go in my coffee.
Curds and whey anyone? arf: It didn’t smell, thank goodness, but I did have to go to the store today to exchange it.
I was really productive today. Much, much better than on Friday. Must be because I won the football picks. You know when things go well, they just keep going well, right?
I really mean it now. No more tuna for a looooong time. This was so dry, even though I mixed it with light mayo. The last of the hurricane Irene stash. Even if we get some other weather prediction like another hurricane or blizzard or whatever, I am not buying more tuna.
I did, however, enjoy my afternoon latte!
This is topped with a drizzle of honey and some cinnamon. A miel, in other words. I don’t sweeten my lattes, but I do like a little drizzle of something on the foam.
Before getting dinner ready, I decided to make some gluten-free banana bread. I am using Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour mixture. My first foray into the multiple non-gluten flour blends. While that was in the oven, I heated up dinner.
Chicken thigh, mango and sauteed brussel sprouts. This was good! The mango was just perfectly ripe. I really should eat mango more often – it is such a tasty fruit.
After dinner I took a walk. Come with me…
Someone has a tasty dinner planned
Fall decorations abound now:
When you are 5 feet 2 inches tall, seeing your legs this long is really exciting!
My Broncos are on TV tonight for Monday Night Football. However, it is the 2nd game which starts at 10:15 p.m.! I will be asleep by the end of the first quarter, I think.
So how did that gluten-free banana bread come out?
Triple dipple thumbs up! Gosh this was good. You would never even guess it was gluten free, either. I will post the recipe tomorrow.
