Mama's Night In

My oh my how the weekend flew by.... I hate when that happens. We were just so stinking busy! Saturday evening I had a girl friend over. I made some appetizers for us, grilled chicken with a cucumber sauce (trying to use up all my cucs) and a bruschetta (basil & tomatoes from the garden) with homemade french bread.... it was YUMMY!

Even thought technically I am not a full time homemaker I would like to believe that I do the best I can with the time, energy and money I have. Eventually I would love to be at home full time with a clean house full of kiddos, ok maybe the clean part is a stretch :) But who knows what the future will bring.
Anywhoo here are a few pics of some of my attempts, well 2 to be exact to keep costs down and health up!
Harvest from our garden, August 2nd, 2011
Homemade granola. So easy and so yummy! Recipe found & adapted from Brown Eyed Baker.
Finished product with blueberry Greek yogurt for breakfast. Yum, Yum!
Life is good and we are blessed :)

My Daily List

One of my favorite blogs is Little Miss Mama. She is a super wonderful, honest, talented stay at home mommy :) I always get a kick out of her stories about her and Baby W's adventures. Well this morning I read her post about Lists.... and let me just say, I am ADDICTED to lists! I have never thought about it as an addiction (hee hee) but I get the same sick satisfaction from crossing things off that Ashley does. So here is my list for the day....
  1. Find a DJ for the wedding (I have 2 contacts, have called and left a v.m. for one)
  2. Text my stylist back about the trial run for hair and makeup
  3. Mail Bills
  4. Blog post
  5. Make chicken tacos for dinner
  6. Work on sewing project (This prob will not be posted for awhile but I will post it in oh... a month and a half or so :))
  7. 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels (I did it last night and feel pretty good today, I might step it up and do level 2 tonight!)
  8. Water garden

So this is my list... I am sure I will add more and cross some off and start a new tomorrow! Do you all make lists and get the same satisfaction from crossing them off?

Banana Muffin

This is not just any banana muffin. It was SUPER moist and fluffy! I used this recipe from all recipes
I added Peanut Butter chips as well as chocolate chips. I also used sour cream instead of yogurt since I had a tub of sour cream I needed to use up. As you can tell I am a sucker for the chocolate and peanut butter combo. Plus I had a bag of each I needed to finish off :)
Happy Baking!
