Another Lost Season

I'm going to try to write this with the most optimistic attitude as I can, but I'm going to warn you, after seeing this pathetic Eagles game and watch out team blow another shot at the Superbowl, I'm not in the best of moods. 

Let's not talk about that though. 

Let's talk about the good things about today. 

Like the food.  The food is always good. 

I was up at my normal "sleep-in" time. 7am is the longest by body allows me to sleep apparently. 

By 8am, I'm starting breakfast and deciding when I need to wake up the boy. 

 Today, I think the smell alone was enough because as soon as these Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes hit the griddle, someone was awake.

In today's mix, I added about 2 TBL of TJ's Peanut Flour and it made all the difference.

I also whipped up 3 eggs to split between us for some protein.  I was going to Body Pump and wanted to fuel properly.

Body Pump was killer today.  We used an old release so although I wasn't feeling the music as much, the moves were intense.

After class I did some grocery shopping, came home, showered and heated up lunch.

Leftover Thai food was calling my name.

 To make it more voluminous, I added some broccoli and sprinkled the top with edamame.

The rest of the afternoon didn't really get exciting until this little peanut came to visit.

My sister and brother in law decided to come over for an impromptu family dinner so my dad put on his apron and got busy while we played with the company. (Just Weston, not my sister and brother-in-law)

For dinner, my dad outdid himself with his famous lasagna.

And because he loves me so much, my own personal cheese-less veggie lasagna.

Dinner was superb!  Thanks Dad!

Dessert was not so sweet.  We all kind of loss our appetites after the Eagles game.  Ugh, another season down the drain.  This was supposed to be our year. 

I hope you all had a better Sunday night than we did.  

Goodnight friends! 



  1. The first photo of the peanut is so precious. Sorry about the Eagles' loss :(

  2. Your dad is quite the cook! It's so nice he made an entire lasagna for you!

  3. sorry about the eagles! so nice of your pops to make you a cheeseless lasagna. that means when i come over for dinner i can share w you!

  4. Looks amazing! Your nephew is adorable!

  5. Hi Love...Ryan and I were disappointed with the game too. We always get so close...and then it falls apart. At least you had some yummy food and a cute baby by your side. You are so photogenic, my friend! Thank you for sharing, my dear. I hope you have a good Monday. Let the week begin!

  6. Sorry about the loss :( There's always next year!!!

    Those pancakes sound so good! I've seen the TJ's peanut flour all over, but I haven't gone to TJ's in forever so I haven't tried it, but it sounds awesome :) And if I were Toly I would've woken up too lol. That's also very sweet of your dad to make a special lasagna for you! It reminds me when a family friend of ours was staying with us she made this German dish called "Nudelauflauf" and she would make two since people had different tastes.

    XOXO love you to pieces!

  7. Josh was SO totally bummed. Sigh....oh Eagles. Glad you guys had a nice evening. Both lasagnas look fantastic. Your Dad is such the cook! Have a good Monday

  8. Looks like a lovely dinner!!!!!

  9. Sorry about the Eagles... your dad's veggie lasagna sounds delicious, though! even if dessert wasn't as planned... :(

  10. I think my brother cried after the game last night. Disappointing. Hey, at least the Phils have been getting far(ther) than the Eagles lately...

  11. holy mackerel those pancakes look amazing! sorry about your team, mama. all i can say is THANK GOD because marshall is in a good mood for one more week. phew.

  12. I posted a comment earlier, but I don't see it on here so if I'm repeating myself I'm sorry. I was wondering if you could share your dad's cheese-less veggie lasagna recipe. I've been wanting to make one for awhile and would love a recipe to follow. Thanks!
