Since you been gone.....

What is it about Kelly Clarkson songs that I love so much?? I do not know. Sorry that I have been a little MIA this weekend. Here is a brief summary:

Friday: Ran 3 miles, Outback, WF's, Relaxing
Saturday: Taught Body Step, Parents came to visit for lunch, longgggggg nap with Josh and Frank, lots of baking
Sunday: Walk with the Frankster, little shopping, Body Step practice, little work, din din.

Tonight for dinner, I wanted something wholesome. I made soup with tons of veggies: peas, corn, potatoes, zucchini, carrots, spinach, chickpeas:


I had mine with some bread. For Josh, I made a melty turkey and cheese sammy to go with his soup:

And now, for something fun! Our new house is ALMOST done and I wanted to show you some pictures of my kitchen to be! I am currently cooking in a very tiny and old kitchen. I cannot wait to move into this beauty. All that is left to put in are the appliances and faucets. View from the family room:
Breakfast nook (sorry its blurry):


View from the nook:

etc....
Ah! I cannot wait! The only thing my old kitchen (in MD) had that this one doesn't have is an island. I will miss the island a bit but really love the setup of this kitchen!
How was your Sunday?

Thanks for your really nice comment on my blog the other night! I try hard to instill awareness in my kids so that they are grateful for all that they have. It's extra rewarding to me when others take notice of these things! :)

The Blonde Duck said...

That kitchen is gorgeous! I love that bar!

Jenn said...

It's gorgeous!!! Just think of all of the delicious meals you can make!

lesley said...

We got Nature's Gate toothpaste. We really just kinda looked at them and picked one because we just didn't really know which one to try? ha ... but we both like it so far.

As far as the bread, Erik's not much of a recipe kind of guy, ha, he really just threw some things together. Basically all that he did for this bread was grind up sprouted kidney beans, quinoa, and rice and mixed it with some baking powder, some cinnamon, and agave nectar. Since it was a experiment this is all we did. And since it worked, we're going to try to make it better now and actually use yeast and make it more of a real loaf. I'll keep you undated;)

Hope you had a great Monday!! : )

Sharon said...
