Monday Musings

1. The ever-generous of us at Chobani not too long ago despatched me a field of their new “flip” yogurts (plus a brilliant smooth tee-shirt and a cool yogurt spoon) to strive.

I’d charge them within the following order (1 being my favourite): Almond Coco Loco, Key Lime Crumble, Strawberry Dawn, and Vanilla Golden Crunch. The coconut yogurt within the Almond Coco Loco was superior! They need to make yogurt cups of simply the coconut taste… SO good! The important thing lime flavored yogurt was okay, however the graham cracker crumbs and mini white chocolate chips had been an incredible addition.

My one gripe is that there isn’t sufficient of the crunchy add-ins for any of the flavors… I say load ‘em in ;).

2. I don’t know whether or not it’s as a result of I’m nonetheless making up for 9 months with out runny yolks or as a result of it’s a straightforward meal to toss along with an toddler snuggled on my torso in her sling, however I’ve been consuming toast with mashed avocado and easy-over-eggs for lunch on extra days than not.

I merely can’t tire of this scrumptious mixture!

3. We had one more big storm blow by way of Jap Massachusetts this previous weekend. Our city was pounded particularly laborious, buried in 22 inches… although I’d rely us fortunate compared to a number of the coastal cities, which suffered energy outages and even homes fairly actually falling into the ocean. Yep, for 2 days straight the native morning information centered virtually solely on a few ocean-front homes that broke off from their foundations and collapsed partially into the waves beneath.

Makes me suppose twice about sometime proudly owning a trip residence on Cape Cod!

4. I lastly caved in and acquired a sluggish cooker (due to my in-laws for the Amazon birthday reward card!).

Earlier than Lily was born, I admittedly thought sluggish cookers had been a “cheaters” means of cooking. Dumping substances right into a pot and letting it cook dinner all day didn’t enchantment to me once I had time on my arms to spend an hour or extra making dinner each evening.

Now that I’m a mother, I completely get the comfort issue!

I’ve began to gather slow-cooker recipes, and would love hyperlinks to these you get pleasure from.

5. You already know it’s been a looooong winter (see #3 above) if you roll down the automobile home windows and really feel like carrying a tee shirt on a forty five° day. I’ve reached my threshold for snow, and am hoping that the gentle climate forecasted for this week will soften all of it away!

6. My mother is coming to stick with me subsequent week whereas John is away on a enterprise journey, and I’m so excited! Even if you’re a mother your self, there’s nothing like having your individual mommy round for consolation, woman discuss, and an general good time :).
