I seriously had a difficult time getting myself out of my warm cozy bed this morning! And I think the BOY was struggling as well. We had a really fun weekend! Saturday morning, I was back on my mat with my last session of kids yoga this year. It is a unique group because my younger class is all at the top end of the age range and have been doing yoga with me for a bit, so we were able to try some new stuff. They stuck with it all and did great!
My older class is a mix of abilities and new and experienced kids. It is a huge learning experience for me to try to teach to everybody while making sure all of the kids feel successful and comfortable. The morning flew by, and I left work feeling grateful to have the opportunity to share my passion for yoga with this amazing group of kids.
I spent the rest of Saturday running around and luckily had some downtime on Sunday. Then we went to my parents house to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah.
After dinner, the BOY and I went to Bed Bath for our registry completion event. We bought a few big things for the kitchen including a gorgeous knife set and this…
I am still drooling over it!
After the weekend, it’s no wonder when our alarm went off this morning, we were more than happy to stay in bed. And Cooper was more than happy to join us! While the BOY drove off to the train, I met my trainer for a strength session.
Then stopped by the grocery store on the way home. When I was in NY I had the simplest and tastiest Maple latte so I decided to recreate one while I unpacked groceries and took a little downtime to catch up on emails and make my list for the day ahead. Big things on today’s list included an oil change, holiday cards, and setting up our Hanukkah décor.
On top of that, I baked two loaves of Cinnamon Delight Bread and two dozen 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.
Since I was making Thai Peanut Butter Chicken, I figured it would be easy to use my extra homemade peanut butter for cookies. And I love that I always have ingredients to make this recipe in my pantry.
Do you love my Hanukkah spatula???
After running around ALL day, I was absolutely exhausted! And stuffed with leftover potato pancakes and cookies. I made an easy dinner of turkey burgers before cleaning everything up and sinking into my couch. Good Night!
Meal Planning 12/07/15
Monday: Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers
Tuesday: Clean Peanutty Thai Chicken
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
From Gimme Some Oven
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy…I used homemade)
1 cup sugar (plus extra for dipping if desired)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using an electric mixer or a strong spoon, mix together the peanut butter, white sugar and egg until smooth.
Form dough into round tablespoon-fulls. Then roll in an extra bowl of sugar, if desired, to coat the outside of the dough ball. Place on the baking sheet at least 2 inches apart, and then use a fork to flatten and form a cross pattern.
Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, until the cookies are just slightly browned on the bottom, being careful not to over-bake. Remove and let cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
