After getting such a late start to the day, 8 PM seems like 5 PM! Let the House Hunters marathon ensue. 🙂
In fact, the whole day has been lazy. We went out to lunch at Big Daddy’s for burgers.
My Dad joined us. So nice to have him near.
I was craving sweet potato fries, so I ordered a bunch for the three us of to share as an appetizer.
And for lunch, I had a black bean burger on a whole wheat bun. I really must figure out how to make these at home. They clearly are fried and have sour cream and corn in the mix. Any recipe ideas?
With a lovely side salad. Big Daddy’s has the best side salads.
We were planning to go on a hike after dinner, but my knee hurts STILL. This is definitely not my runner’s knee flaring up; it’s something different. And so acute! It wasn’t even bothering me at all until yesterday. It’s like one run did me in.
Instead, we saw a movie. RED was pretty good. It was a hybrid action/comedy. Sad when Bruce Willis plays the “old, Grandpa figure” though. I still think he’s hot. 🙂
Since I never had breakfast (I slept until noon), I had breakfast for dinner.
Just a big bowl of oatmeal (3/4 cup oatmeal, rice milk, water, banana, pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, almonds and chia seeds).
And currently, something fun is sitting in the freezer!
I used to love to make Rice Crispy Treats as a kid. I need to bring those back!
I made a single serving for the Husband and I by mixing together brown rice syrup, oatmeal, puffed millet, powered sugar, and oatmeal. I wish I could share the ingredients, but I just kind of eyeballed it. But it’s going to taste ah-maz-ing, though.
So, it closes on another Sunday! Can’t believe the weekend is already over though. What do you guys have planned for this week? Anyone planning their Thanksgiving menus yet?
Emily @ The Front Burner has a GREAT black bean burger recipe. They aren’t the same as the Big Daddy ones but are def. worth trying b/c they’re sooooo good! http://www.thefrontburnerblog.com/2010/05/vegan-bean-burger-recipe.html
