Oh man, this week has just been crazy, you guys. Between busy days at work and busy evenings at home, I feel like I’m behind on about 1,001 and different things. You know how it goes!
Monday was my father-in-law’s birthday, so as soon as Jay got out of work, we all headed over to visit with him and celebrate.
The good news is that he’s no longer in the hospital (I think I mentioned this to you guys before but I can’t remember) but he’s currently (and hopefully temporarily in a nursing home). We’re hoping that with the help of some physical therapy and occupational therapy, we’ll be able to get him home soon, but only time will tell.
We all want Papa T home!
As for Monday, we all had a nice time celebrating and we all thoroughly enjoyed the birthday cake!
What else have I been enjoying this week? Hmmmm, well, there’s been waffles with peanut butter, banana, and syrup.
And there’s also been some delicious salads made with lots of veggies and rotisserie chicken.
Oh yeah, and then there was THIS salad made with chicken, avocado, cranberries, apples, carrots, and creamy Italian dressing. That was a winner.
I also made a banana bread with some overripe bananas and not only was it super simple, but it. is. DELICIOUS. I used THIS RECIPE in case you’re interested!
And as you can see, I also wound up baking some cookies. These would be my Chewy Chocolate Chip Heath Bar Cookies, which actually got a little blog re-do/makeover.
That post has been one of my top recipes for as long as I can remember, and it’s always been at the back of my mind to spruce it up a bit. The pictures were taken over 5 years ago and, well, they were looking a little sad (I even left a few of the originals in the post, haha). So if you haven’t already checked these babies out, definitely go see them freshened up a bit over there.
By far, one of my favorite cookie recipes!
So how’s the week going for all of you so far? What have you been thoroughly enjoying?? Almost to Fridayyyyy! <3
