We woke up to snow on Saturday morning. Just not right for April, even though it's not a big surprise for our area. Hubby said it looked like powdered sugar on the pachysandra. It was the craziest weather day. We had bursts of snow and hail off and on all day, along with 50 mph winds that had its icy hands rattling the windows and gutters and clanging them against the house.
Staying in on Saturday was a given. I actually dragged out some of my scrapbooking/journaling stuff. And the reason I say actually...I am terrible at making headway with this. It's hard for me to sit and concentrate on projects. I'm much more of an "up and doing things" kind of person.
Had yummy food food going on all weekend:
Roasted pepitas make a tasty, nutritious snack. Just toss raw pepitas with a little extra-virgin olive oil, pure maple syrup, chili powder and cumin and toast in the oven at 350F for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes.
Made a VEGGIE CURRY for dinner - delish over rice.
Sunday morning blueberry muffins...wheat and dairy free, no refined sugar:
2 cups almond flour or almond meal (I used almond meal)
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 large eggs
4 T raw honey or pure maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
1 c frozen wild blueberries (NOTE: Do not thaw!)
Preheat oven to 350F. Mist a muffin tin with cooking spray. (Note: This recipe only makes 7 muffins.)
In a large mixing bowl, whisk almond flour/meal and baking soda. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, honey or maple syrup, vanilla, vinegar, cinnamon and salt; pour into flour mixture and gently mix until combined. Fold in frozen blueberries.
Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly golden.
Homecare (isn't that such a lovely word...so different than housework) included repotting some succulents and making a new vignette on the top of the dresser in my office/Phil's old room.
There's always the sweet pleasure of sleeping kitties, curled up like commas and squeezed into their little beds.
