Sunday Brunch

ok….so i have a secret….this is a sunday brunch from last sunday….but that doesn’t take away any of its sunday brunch special-ness dignity right?!

yes this is how behind i am….how do you all do it?

with work, school, my working out schedule and and fullfilling my duty to attain a somewhat high standard as a wife at home….i just cant find the time to fit in my bloggin at the end of the day…. i apologize- ill fit you guys in better somehow ūüėČ

so anyhow, look at what my husband blessed me with last sunday for brunch….

we didnt eat until about 1 and i was becoming impatient and starving-however, the wait was worth it:

our menu included:

  • rudis 7 grain bread french toast
  • egg¬†frittata
  • fresh fruit
  • coffee
  • love

it was absolutely delicious and after devouring my entire plate, i was well fueled for our hike with alice later.

alice had some breakfast too :

eggs for alice:

no coffee for you miss alice..

later that day we came home and called it a day on the couch.

we watched gangs of new york- which we had not seen.

i was very impressed….and it is a very violent movie might i add….

but the acting is great.

i felt so guilty because i like the villans acting so much that i kept being tricked into liking his character and….he was a very, very bad man!

after lots of yummy assorted appetizing treats throughout our movie,

it was more mac and cheese for dinner!

ryans take this time:

alice was really ready for bed!!

you make me coffee, i make you breakfast.

ok, now this is a special coffee..

look at that:

he says he makes them with love..that would explain it.

i stayed in bed and did homework and indulged in my beautfiul warm drink, in my cozy warm bed, with my cute warm dog cuddled under the covers with me, for quite some time.

as i made my way out of bed to start some breakfast i found this:

isnt he cute?.. (xbox)

he makes me coffees, i make us breakfast, its our sunday tradition.

these..amazing! really though..so good.

my guy is an egg guy.

i started like this: (ps isnt my new cutting board gorgeous?!)

i added some butter to a hot pan.

sizzleeee, sizzleeeeee, sizzzzzlleeeeee

in went to eggs:

i readied this, it was destined to be toasted:

add spinach:

presto!

um..mom wheres mine?

i didnt forget the kids!

they get special sunday breakfast too:

she was very pleased:

i attempted to recreate the berries and cream like yesterday..but i was out of vanilla protein..

i failed..it was really nothing to brag about:

it really had good potential! but it was lacking the vanilla/cream aspect.

the highlight was really the almond butter and granola..

rye and i had a really good workout!

he burned 1000 calories! whoa! i was super proud.

i had a good balance of cardio, legs and abs but my arms were very soar.

thats me, and you can see rye behind me in the blue:

dinner wasnt to exciting. leftover pizza from saturday and a yummy salad i made.

lets have a great week!

saturday morning

this morning i got to sleep in! it was heaven. …..truly it was. ok..moving on then.

i was delivered coffee in bed:

we had to try out our new coffee pot and my new mug! love it.

in this glass you will find:

  • starbucks organic coffee
  • trader joes vanilla half and half (nice and frothy thanks to my sweet man)
  • 365 organic whipped cream (my weekend treat)
  • cinnomon

while indulging you will find:

  • happiness
  • warmth
  • deliciousness
  • love

ryan was getting to work on laundry and office detail so i decided….a much later in the morning…. after being in bed and blogging and enjoying coffee…. that i would get on breakfast duty!

i started with fuel for my man….

prepping essentials:

cooking away….(might i add i was a distant minded this morning, first i readied the toaster and decided to toast away before the eggs were ready, and i plated the eggs before adding the cheese….i managed to get it together somehow and….)

finished product:

scambled eggs extra extra love:

  • 5 organic eggs (he was a hungry boy and it was nearing noon)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • a few meaty organic mushrooms
  • handful of organic cilantro
  • 1 small organic tomato chopped
  • 1/2 jalepeno¬†chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic (we are garlic people)
  • rudis 7 grain bread
  • bonne mamman¬†raspberry¬†preserves
  • franks red hot
  • salt and pepper

to cook:

melt butter over low heat, add eggs (after prepared for scrambling, with chopped garlic, chopped jalepeno, salt, pepper and franks red hot), add mushrooms, cook very slowly, stirring frequently ( i like to use a spatula and turn them over rather than stirring), once eggs are half way cooked add tomatoes, cilantro (save some for garnish)

when eggs are near finished toast bread, once bread is toasted if cooking for ryan add lots of butter and top with jam.

(notice our other ‘new mug’..oohh la la)

then it was breakfast time for mwah

prepping essentials:

(this yogurt is really yummy, and its so low in calories..i dont know how they do it)

yum:

all in all including the add in’s:

  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
  • cup cantaloup
  • 1/4 cup of ezekial cereal (i call them “healthy-er grapenuts (my fave))
  • 1/4 cup of natures path granola
  • honey almond butter (of course)
  • dash of organic blueberries
  • tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey (little goes a long way)

tadahhhhhhh

it was a big breakfast, i know. but it filled me up all day.

and i was off for my work out. it was a good one. i gave the credit to the sleep, breakfast, but mostly the coffee i am sure.

when i¬†retuned, it was kitchen fixing upping for me….and a lot of it. but it was worth it! my kitchen is much more¬†manageable. thank you me. the office looks amazing, thank you ryan.
