Some days are just no fun and that is exactly how today has turned out to be. This morning we got out for an hour or so to run some errands and when we made it home we realized LB had a fever and just wasn’t quite himself. After cleaning up the “sickness” we will call it he took a shower with his daddy (his favorite thing to do) and we went on with the rest of the day. His fever is now gone and I think he is beginning to feel better but we will just say that today was full of a lot of cuddling on the couch and pedialyte. With all of the sick fun going on there wasn’t much time for me to be creative in the kitchen but we did get lunch and dinner on the table and I consider that a major success.
For lunch I took some leftover spinach and artichoke dip from last night and used it to top some chips for some quick nachos. I used an assortment of corn tortilla chips, whole grain tortilla chips and baked pita chips. I topped them with the dip and baked on 450 for 10 minutes and then on broil for 5 minutes.
I served the nachos with a veggie burger. I had a tomato basil pizza burger and Lew had the mushroom lovers burger.
For an afternoon snack I made a little yogurt bowl for Lew and I to split. For some reason (probably because it was the 15 minutes both babies were asleep at the same time and I wasn’t thinking about the camera) I did not get a photograph.
In the yogurt bowl:
- one container of Chobani Greek yogurt with honey.
- Sprinkle of bear naked granola
- About a teaspoon of peanut butter
I stirred everything together and it was wonderful. Here is the conversation we had about this snack.
Lew: You know what this needs?
Lew: More peanut butter
Me: Couldn’t everything use more peanut butter?
Lew: Well…this is really good! Why have you never made this before?
Me: I have but you always said it looked gross…
Needless to say, we will be having a lot more yogurt with peanut butter in our house.
For dinner I warmed up some homemade chicken noodle soup that Carolyn sent home with us after we ate lunch with her last week.
This was so good! LB and Daisy loved the carrots and the noodles.
Sadly there was again no work out today. However, we have a schedule made for tomorrow and as long as LB is fever free we will both be making it to the gym. If he is not fever free I will be doing an at home workout of some sort!
