Our weekend has been a little busy. There are a lot of errands and housework to be done before we leave for our honeymoon.
I’m scrubbing and wiping every thing in our kitchen. I want to come home to a clean kitchen when we return. Chris and I both spend a lot of time in the kitchen and seeing it clean every time I walk in, makes me happy.
Bright flowers always make me happy. These are from our front yard. I finally had the chance to bring some roses inside and put them on a vase. Pink and orange were the wedding colors, so this vase has been a constant reminder.
And we missed our friends, so we made time to socialize too. We went out with friends and watched the movie “The Hangover Part II“. It was very funny and we laughed out loud so many times. If you loved the first movie, you will like the current movie also. I also loved watching the beach scenes in the movie, because we are heading to a similar place for our honeymoon.
This weekend, we also enjoyed his and hers pizookie. Cookies and Cream pizookie for Chris and red velvet pizookie for me.
We invited my mom and my sister to dinner. We wanted to thank them for all the help throughout the wedding planning.
Our dinner food was ok, but we all enjoyed our desserts. Pizookie, cookie in a pizza pan. It’s not pizza pizza, it’s pizookie pizookie.
I enjoyed a few bites of each to try them out. So sweet.
My mom and my sista. It was great catching up and all we did was talk about the wedding.
Our tradition of pancake Sunday continued today.
Kodiak pancakes with chocolate coconut butter Cacao Bliss, chia seeds and coconut flakes.
Cacao = bliss.
Welcome home, I heard the pancakes say 🙂
I also baked and made a batch of oaties this weekend.
I used cashew nut butter and added plenty of dried tropical fruits in the mix.
Dried mangoes, papaya and plenty of pineapple.
I was planning on mailing these out to a friend, but I could not stop at one sample and ended up eating half the batch. I’m going to make more tonight so that my goodie package doesn’t look like it has been attacked and half empty.
I need to ship these out asap before they make it into my mouth. Oh so good.
What is your favorite dessert at a restaurant?
Pizookie is one of my favorites, along with cheesecakes from Cheesecake Factory. I just googled the recipe for pizookies and I found them here.
