Breakfast prep in the heat. Yeah, yeah we all know it’s hot here in VT :-). Enjoy it! Don’t make it an excuse. Easy, no cooking “overnight” oats. 🥣 2 scoops with an old protein scoop of oats
🥜 1 pinch nuts of your choice, I like almond slivers 🥥 1 pinch chopped coconut
Combine above ingredients and have on hand. 🥛 Night before cover the oats with milk- I like almond milk
🍬 When you want to eat add one scoop of protein. My go to is phormula-1 vanilla milkshake
My little AAU gals say it tastes like Easter 🍬 When the kiddos approve, score 👏🏻 #mealprep#overnightoats#iam1stphorm#eastercandy#breakfast
Following other artists here creates new challenges to your own artistic flair, especially when they have a #designcontest , #fooddragon#artcontest#giveaway#contest which is exactly what @dragonsandbeasties is doing until June 1st. Since I've Never worked with #polymerclaycreations before, I thought I would give it a try to teach my grandkids.
Here is #myrendition of My favorite #eastercandy of All time for my Entry in the #fooddragoncontest
My first little #dragon came in it's own wrapping and to my surprise when I opened it there was Extra Special Surprises included.
An Easter basket of it's own with a Bunny, a Duck, an egg made from the wrappings. And holding it's very own #cadburyeggs also across it's back.
An egg cream center for a saddle, #creameggs for Chestarmor and Spikes, and wings made from the wrappings also.
If I didn't know that I made this from #sculpy I seriously would want to take a bite and devour it. I hope that this inspires you to know that anyone at any age can do #art .
My hubby made a Scottish Ring while I was creating this #fooddragon .
I got a super-awesome kid-culled gift basket for Mother’s Day that included (among other things) *four* delicious gourmet chocolate treats. I’ve eaten three and haven’t shared one bite. Meanwhile, this is my child’s *Easter* stash. Who is this kid???? 🍫 🍭 🍬 🍫Don’t even get me started on the Valentine’s candy he’s saving in the fridge. 😳
Not sure how this happened, but my mom gave me this bag a couple months ago and it lasted until just now!! I’ve never had such a low consumption of these- I look forward to when i see them in the stores after Valentine’s Day! See ha next year, #starburst#starburstjellybeans#eastercandy#yum 😋
Confession... Today I yelled at this sweet face. More like screamed. And so hard my throat hurt. Insert mom guilt. It was nap time and both of us desperately needed naps. She was cranky and I work tonight. After fighting with her for an hour and a half to go to sleep and being woken up multiple times in 15 min (yes, I fall asleep fast!) the frustration set it and I lost it. Completely. Lost. It.
The old me would have gone downstairs, found the hidden Easter candy and eaten until I was sick. Because I “deserved it”. I “needed it”. The new me grabbed a La Croix and sat in the sun to refuel.
Have you ever had these moments? Please tell me I’m not the only one! What do you do to reset your mind? Eat chocolate? Drink wine? Go for a run? Read a book?
A coworker once told me, if you want something for a gift just get it yourself! If you expect someone else to get it for you, you’ll just be disappointed. Mother’s Day is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate all the hard work and time you have given to those sweet faces than to take a small percentage back to devote to yourself. THAT is something you deserve!
