Look at that...
Then a year or two ago a pretty significant vine started growing up our fence. I didn't think much of it but one of the little branches bloomed a little purple flower. I. WENT. NUTS. My Wisteria had somehow survived. I guess it's a pretty strong little plant! So last year I didn't cut any of it back. I wanted to see what would happen. And this my friends is what I now have...
That's not in full bloom but it's already so pretty. I'm in heaven! :D
On a totally different note this week is Kai's Spring Break....Which means I have no time off. lol!
If I don't blog at night it's just not going to happen. So I'm going to try, but I may be a little more MIA this week than usual. I thought I'd go ahead and give you all a heads up, since I know the majority of you just sit and stare at your computers waiting for my posts to pop up. -just kidding...or am I? :)
Breakfast this morning was fruit nachos! I definitely think they're prettier when you have strawberries to top them with but these were tasty non-the-less. Apple & Pear slices topped with raisins, chia seeds, flax seed, cinnamon, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, rolled oats and Raw Wildflower Honey.
MMMMM, that's a tasty mess!
As lunch time rolled around and I realized my Almond Butter jar was pretty much as empty as it could get so I decided to make up some Hummus.
1 can of Chickpeas, 2 T Lime Juice, 2 T Tahini, Drizzle of Olive Oil and a whole lot of dried basil...Blended until smooth.
Once I had the Hummus made up, wraps seemed like the next step...
That would be Hummus, Carrots, Sweet Pepper, Tomato, Spinach, Mushrooms and Greek Yogurt. I actually drained the yogurt to the point of almost being a cheese it was so thick...And I LOVED it!
After lunch I whipped up a slip cover for our ottoman. We bought a new rug over the weekend (the old one had passed the point of dirty and was in gross-mode) so our red ottoman didn't fit in quite so well. The plan was to cover it in brown but I didn't have enough brown material so instead I picked a bright yellow...Hey, it's spring. I like it. The Hubs said, "Yellow...That's Interesting", i.e. I HATE that color. BUT he's agreed it fits in with Easter so we're going to leave it for at least two weeks. lol!
Anyway, when we got home Kai wanted a Jelly Sandwich so that's what she got, plus a banana and then a hard boiled egg.
I roasted some cabbage, onion & brussel sprouts at 475 for 30 minutes...
and then topped them with some nutritional yeast.
That was followed up with the last hard boiled egg for some protein. :)
Now I'm just watching the Pacers whoop the Heat while I snack on some popcorn, raisins, pumpkin seeds and nutritional yeast. :D
