Where did this energy come from?



  • We decided we are moving in a month and filled out an application for a new apartment.
  • We went to the pumpkin patch.
  • I made a buffalo chicken casserole, which was amazing. No lie.
  • Fed the kids, played with the kids, bathed them, brushed their teeth, read stories, and put to bed with nary a tear.
  • Made a cold oatmeal parfait for breakfast in the morning.
  • Made rootbeer pulled pork in the crock pot.
  • Made breakfast cookies.
  • Did laundry.

The only explanation I have is that I won’t do any more chores or feats of amazing-ness for the rest of the week. Oh, yeah. I have to work tomorrow and teach. Maybe I should go to bed…

Breakfast cookies:

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup peanutbutter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • large handful of dried apricots, diced
  • large handful of mini semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix and bake at 325 until slightly brown.

Cold Oatmeal Parfait:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1.5 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 cup peach pie filling I made this summer with my dear friend Katie

Shake until combined in a mason jar. Leave in the fridge until morning.

Rootbeer Pulled Pork

  • Pork Butt, a large one
  • 2 onions, halved
  • 4 or 5 chipotles in adobo
  • 20 ounces of rootbeer
  • 1 cup-ish chicken stock

Low and slow in the crock pot all night.
