Happy Humid Monday

How are you today?

I'm not happy to report that our A/C unit is officially broken!! We spent the whole day yesterday with the windows open and fans on, thank goodness there was a breeze!!

I got over to the trail yesterday morning and walked 8 miles. It was great to get out there again and I got a lot of thinking done. For breakfast I made some hazelnut-flax-blueberry pancakes.

I used:

1/2 cup hazelnut meal
2 T flax meal
1/4-1/3 cup coconut milk or cream
1 egg
vanilla extract

Mix the first six ingredients together to reach a pancake batter consistancy.

Pour onto a hot oiled griddle (I used coconut oil) and drop blueberries on top.

Cook on medium heat 2-3 minutes per side and enjoy!!

This was an AWESOME breakfast and I wasn't hungry for a long time. The rest of the day I did laundry and tried not to overheat while watching more Shameless. I had some leftover shepherd's pie for dinner (not pictured).

Today I woke up early--hello 5am!! to help the husband wake up for PT. He's been on leave for the past month, it's hard for him to wake up early, especially Mondays! I did a bit of tidying since I wasn't able to do any housework in the heat over the weekend. I made some eggs & sausage, but packed them to eat here at work just because it was too hot to eat!

I'm also trying a new tea flavor from Stash!

It's described as "White tea is full of potent antioxidants and may be even more beneficial than green tea. Rare and expensive white tea from China has been blended with top quality green teas for our Fusion blend. Pale gold in color, this tea has a unique smooth flavor and a hint of sweetness. Its delicate, exquisite taste is a treat for the connoisseur." This is a great light tea, perfect for my overheated body!!

My car should be ready to be picked up today--YAY!!! This meant I got a ride into work from Stella and packed my lunch. Spinach salade with carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions, strawberries, blueberries, bacon, balsamic vinegar & olive oil.

I've got quite a bit of work to do today, nothing major I hope to get it all done today!

Have a great Monday! :)
