Reese woke up at 2:45 am in a panic. He couldn’t find his blankie (I snuck it out of his room last night to wash it). Officer M took him downstairs to try to soothe him so I could go back to sleep. At 4:30 I woke again to SCREECHING! Officer M was trying to put him back to bed – with a damp blanket now – and he wasn’t havin it! Now it was my turn to take him downstairs.
Needless to say I’m exhausted. I mentioned this to my BFF (who is on maternity leave with her twins) and now I feel whiney and ridiculous…
Ok, so the rest of my day – pretty boring. Phone duty at the office, laundry, emails, cleaning etc. I did make lunch however:
Chicken Sausage and Peppers Penne (IN-sanely Easy)
Have you met my friend?
This is my Turbo Cooker (aka Wonder Cooker – because it’s a wonder all the things it can do!)
I chopped up a red pepper, yellow pepper and half a vialia onion. I threw that in the Wonder Cooker with 1.5 cups of dry pasta and 1.5 cups of water.
Cover and let it cook on high until the pasta is al dente. While that was going, I cut up some chicken sausage:
Tossed these in with 1 can of diced tomato of your flavor choice, garlic powder, onion powder (and fresh basil cause I have it) and simmer a few more minutes until the favors meld.
Tonight is kickboxing night (yay!) so I wanted to get all our play-date treats ready for tomorrow and out of the way:
PB Banana Drop Cookies
These are carzy easy to make too.
1.5 c Quick Oats
1/4c Smooth Peanut Butter
2 Rip Bananas (mashed)
Raisins and Chocolate Chips
Mix banana, PB and oats together really well and fold in chocolate chips and raisins.
Scoop into a little ball using a tablespoon. I only got 19 this time…
Bake ’em at 350 for 12-15 minutes until you see browning. I like to put them in tupperware in the fridge once they’re cooled off.
Seeing as it’s still ridiculously hot here, I think dinner is going to be a Chocolate Protein Ice Cream. That and I’m sooooo done cooking today. Have a great night!
