Today is a real big day. February is already lining up to be one awesome and busy month!
You may ask why this is turning into such a special month and while there a lot of things going on, the most important one is that MY SISTER IS IN LABOR!!!!
She’s been in labor for a solid 17 hours. There’s no telling when he’s going to pop out but my guess is sooner than later. I CANNOT wait to meet the little guy when I’m there next week!
Breakfast 8:30 AM
This is a bowl of mom’s natural whole grain cereal. Super tasty and has 5 grams of protein per serving. Not too shabby cereal…
- Fresh strawberries
- slivered almonds
- chia seeds
I came home a tad bit early from work because of all the texts and phone calls I was getting from family. It was hard to focus with all the excitement. I decided to take advantage of the extra time at home to cook up some big meals to have left-overs for the rest of the week.
Dinner: 5:30 PM
I made a fillet of tilapia and a GIANT pot of red chard risotto. I made this same risotto on Sunday and it was soo good. The leftovers were seriously just as good. I think this might be my favorite dish lately. I should definitely write a post about this recipe, since I made it from scratch. It’s very easy to make, it’s just the time in front of the stove stirring that takes a bit. I also roasted some veggies I had laying around.
- pumpkin seeds
Covered in olive oil, salt pepper and some crush red pepper. I think the pumpkin seeds as a nice nutty and crunchiness to the veggies. I enjoyed this combo. Dinner was so filling tonight. Normally, I like a smaller dinner but I enjoyed it all way too much.
My night was joined by these two lovelies. A little bit of ice cream, a little bit of cat. I can’t really asked for much more…except a brand new baby!
If he looks even remotely as cute as this guy (his cousin), I know he will be the cutest kid on the block.
I cannot wait til Tuesday where I get to be in the land of sun, palm trees, friends & family.
