Sonny treated the special ladies in his life (l to r: our moms and i) to a SCRUMPTIOUS dinner at Capital Grille.  excuse the crappy pic- ALL of our phone batteries were too low to use the flash, smh. 4 outta 4. what are the odds…. so our waiter used the restaurant’s digital camera and even printed us all hard copies. what a nice touch to our special date!

IMG_20130512_211500yes, yes, yes, and yes.  lobster mac n’ cheese, my mom’s pan seared chilean sea bass with citrus and pea tendrils, creamed spinach, and of course i got the salmon which had green beans and onions on the side.  everything was cooked and flavored to peeeeerfection.

so beautiful and true.  i love when my own little family can all sit down and eat a meal together, but  i definitely miss eating at home with my ‘rents…. i often find myself reminiscing about my childhood memories when hanging out with Chiso.

anyway, that creamed spinach and mac n cheese had my tummy upset with me until about wednesday!  i’ve been keeping my dairy consumption super low, but i went HAM that afternoon. i had to.

so that was last weekend.  THIS weekend, i had been to the gym all week and didn’t want to go anywhere near one saturday morning. i stepped outside instead! Chiso and i had some birthday parties to attend, so i ran to Walgreens (yes, last minute as always) to get some cards.  Walgreens is about 3 miles away, so i ran there and back. literally.  it’s always great to switch things up a bit.

 one of our events for the day was Rilee’s 1 1/2 birthday fun fest!  this was our first 1 1/2 party and i thought it was the coolest idea ever.  i love when people do their own thing!  Kudos to Tinnell and Marcus.

Chiso had THE time of his lil’ life lol.  he went from the bounce house, to the petting zoo, to stuffing his face with James Coney Island hotdogs and fries nonstop from start to finish.

and he even got to experience his first pony ride!

sooo about the ebook!!!!! the sweetest girl in entire world, Ogechi, came over to proofread it for me again.  i claimed May for the book’s completion date and i’m sticking to that. for one of the books anyway;)   i posted about the sweet snack above on IG- they are crunchy almond butter brown rice crispy treats and taste DARN GOOD. see for yourself!  i made some of them for us to snack on, yum.

crunchy almond butter brown rice crispy treats

the stuff: 

  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 cup crunchy almond butter or cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp Enjoy Life dairy-free dark chocolate chips or plain dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp Walden Farms Pancake Syrup
  • 2 cups gluten-free crispy brown rice

do this:

in a medium pot, set your burner to medium heat.

add brown rice syrup, vanilla, Walden Farms syrup, and almond butter together and stir until well combined.

shut off the fire and add in your cereal.

mix well and transfer to a pan that has been sprayed with no stick cooking spray (rectangle, circle, square, don’t matter) and press the cereal flat into an even layer.

refrigerate for at least an hour so it can firm up before you cut it in squares.

gluten-free and dairy-free treat!  as always, sprinkles are optional but you gotta have’em.

makes: 10 bars. serving size: 1 bar. 79 cals – 1g fat – 66mg sodium – 18g carbs – 9g sugar – 1g protein.
