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)



  • 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


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.

da pan


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…)

Bird Room 01- Carpet Still Installed

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!


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!
