madness, continued

Busy basketball baby day!

While Talia was taking a marathon morning nap I made workout cookies.  The top there is slathered in the last little bit of the peanut butter.
(That corner must have fallen out.  Hm...) I also sliced up strawberries.  I had a pretty picture of them, but between the camera and my computer, it got eaten.  Oh well.

Then Talia woke up and we had some happy belly time
and put in the window screen.  Mosie did eventually conquer her fear and was here most of the afternoon.
Then Talia and I went for a walk and when we came back we made peanut butter!
A full jar.  I loooove Peanut  Butter Day! (I loooove licking the bowl and spatula!)

We watched a lot of basketball
and made tahini!
Then Talia had to go home.  So I made another Runner's World recipe!  And it was fabulous.

Original recipe here.  I made a few modifications.

Pasta Bean Toss
1/2 zucchini, diced
1-2 carrots, diced
1/2 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 t. salt
Saute together in olive oil.
Meanwhile, boil 1/2 (or more) bag or frozen chopped broccoli and rinse one can of kidney beans.
When vegetables are soft, drain broccoli and beans and add to the skillet.  Saute together for a few minutes.

Serve over whole grain pasta or over barley (Dave had pasta, I had barley.  Both were excellent.)  Top with parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast.
For the most delicious dessert, eat one of these, fresh from the fridge:
Pretty much die of happiness.  Revive yourself in time for the next batch of basketball games.

It's time for popcorn... and hopefully the Kentucky game?  Right now they're showing N. Iowa and UNLV, which is fine but, um, is not Kentucky.
