Happy long weekend Open-mouthed smile  Just knowing I don’t have to go to work tomorrow relaxes me quite a bit!

Scott and I have had a super busy weekend so far.  I woke up yesterday morning and had a hankerin’ for a Banana Scramble!

(Recipe generalized from Ashley’s list – you can’t go wrong with any of them Winking smile)

served

Ingredients

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1T chia seeds
  • 3T Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 scoop BioChem Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 2T Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk

banana scramble ingredients

Directions

Mash ingredients together with a fork until banana is creamy and set aside for a few minutes so the chia seeds absorb some liquid.  Start a pan on medium/low heat – divide mixture into two.  With a spoon, shape into two patties on the pan and cook each side for approximately 3-4 minutes.  Note: these are NOT easy to flip… they are crumbly!

I had mine with a toasted whole wheat bagel thin, topped with a bit of PB and strawberry jam… and coffee.

Absolutely incredible way to start the day!  This was so good I did a repeat of it for breakfast today Winking smile.  Right after, Scott and I got to work painting another room in the house…took us 2 gallons of Behr “Macchiato” to cover it (and two coats!).

And now we’ve got super white windowsills!

Here’s the before! (Absolutely hideous carpet, brown windowsills…)

In between coats of paint, lunch was served!  A salad beast with spinach, cukes, carrots, orange pepper, a veggie patty, crackers, water, and a Chobani Pineapple yogurt/granola.

After 4 hours of painting, my arms were DEAD!.  So, we hit the pool for the afternoon.  Seriously, painting IS a workout.  I brought along a perfectly juicy nectarine and some almonds to snack on Smile

But, the best part of yesterday was this!

dinner

A too-gigantic-portioned piece of Tilapia with Panko, steamed green beans, and Farro with a tomato based sauce.  Some red vino on the side because that’s all we had Winking smile.

Hope your enjoying your long weekend!
