Leave it to Maddies
As I was going to bed last night, I saw this underneath one of the tables:
The culprit? This little blighter, of course (you’ll have to tilt your head – sorry!):
Ferocious! Shiver me timbers, arrrrr.
The end of a peanut butter jar is always a celebration because that means I can have OIAJ for breakfast!
Oatmeal parfait with peanut butter, oatmeal, frozen blueberries, unsweetened coconut, and tart cherry jam:
Peter and I spent most of the morning cleaning. The before and after pictures are most telling:
Sweat, choice words, and a crazy, vacuum-hating puppy attack later, a clean room:
We cleaned all the rooms in the apartment. I never realized how many crevices there are in a 1200 square foot apartment. How does dirt collect in a closet we don’t even USE??
I broke for poached egg on spinach:
Eggs are such a wonderfully rich source of cheap protein, and topping a salad with a poached egg means you need just a little dressing. Of course, the future dietitian in me MUST say: eating undercooked eggs poses a risk of Salmonella, so just be aware!
Chobani, Barbara’s squares, and passionfruit syrup from Hawai’i (yes, I STILL have it from our honeymoon):
So, why are we doing all this cleaning? Because it’s Spring Break and we’re going here:
That’s right! We’re flying out to Utah tomorrow to ski in the beautiful mountains. I’m so excited! I’ve been out there once before and had a blast. I can’t wait to share my pictures with you guys!
We’re getting into Utah late tomorrow, so no post tomorrow night. I’m anticipating Internet out there, so I should be able to post as usual starting Sunday (crossing my fingers!).
I’ll miss this little one:
But, I know she’ll have fun playing with her buddies while we’re gone:
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone – I’ll see you all on Sunday!
Q: Have you ever been skiing? How did you like it?
Oh I’m so jealous! Have fun in Utah!!
Have an amazing time! No I have not been skiing, my husband loves it, but I am afraid. Next yr, when I am not training for a marathon!
By the way, I loooooove poached or lightly fried eggs on top of salad with reduced balsamic. Decadence!
Reduced balsamic – yum!
HOOOORAYY FOR OIAJ!! that makes me soo happy! yay!
This morning I soooooo wanted OIAJ that I contemplated scooping PB out of the jar and putting it in another container just so I could eat OIAJ, haha! 😉 I settled for just putting a blob on top, but it’s just not as good… sighhhh… 😉
I am not a skier. (Skiier?) I’ve been a couple times and the bunny slope was as far as I made it. I prefer the ski lodge sipping on hot cocoa. So exciting, right? haha! Anyway, hope yall have lots of fun!! 🙂
Haha! There really is something magical about scraping the inside of a PB jar. Is it because I’m being economical? Nah, probably not 🙂
Jessie, going to Utah! Cool! I heard it’s FREEZING there, so bundle up!
I actually HATE skiing. I’ve been there once and it just resulted in me being wet, freezing, and cranky. I’m also not good with speed: I tend to get all pukey when flying downhill with the blustery wind and snow in my face.
Okay, don’t let me be a pooper…you go enjoy yourself, girl!
Haha, awww 😛
I went skiing a couple times in my teens but never really liked it. I don’t think I am that coordinated 😀
I love salad topped with eggs. Maybe I will have that for lunch today!
I have a pretty strong aversion to cold and falling on my bum, but I went skiing in Colorado when I visited a good friend in 2006. Yep, it’s been a while! Fortunately, a) there was a good ski school b) her brother, who had tried out for the X Games, was helpful c) I didn’t die.
I’m just a klutz with those slopes!
c) is pretty important 🙂
I’ve been skiing a few times and think its great! Its good exercise, its fun, and you’re usually somewhere beautiful 🙂 Hope you have an amazing time!
Thanks so much!
