The birthday boy and I had a lot of fun together yesterday!
Per Craig’s requst: Greek Yogurt Pancakes.
I went on an 8-mile run while the birthday boy was still snoozing. It was a really good run, but it was ICY!! I really had to slow down my pace in fear of falling.
I was being indecisive about what toppings to put on my pancakes, so I loaded them all on: Greek yogurt, pumpkin, Crofter’s jam, and pumpkin butter!! Oh, so good!
Does anyone know if it works to freeze leftover pumpkin puree after you open the can? I did that with some pumpkin, but it did not taste good!
Craig’s presents were in three parts. This is part one: some of this favorite snacks–Dots, gummi bears (to be added to ice cream, which Craig loves doing!), and dark chocolate.
I also got him a new brown belt and a new black belt. Since he’s lost about 40 pounds, he needs some new belts!
After showers and getting spiffed up, we headed to our favorite coffee shop: Kaladi Brothers Coffee.
Espressos + cribbage
Since it was after 1:00 p.m., our bellies were in need of food. Next stop: Bear Tooth Grill.
I ordered the zucchini and toasted corn build-your-own-tacos. I’ve never had them before, but they were way good!
Plate #2: guacamole, pico de gallo, and lettuce.
After filling our stomachs with delicious food, we did some shopping:
- Costco (to get a few essentials)
- Toys ‘R Us (for the kid at heart my husband is)
- Michael’s (for the some crafts for the crafty husband)
Craig loveslovesloves pizza and he loveslovesloves Indian food, so why not combine them together?!!?
I have a recipe for naan that I love, so I used that one! (It can be found here.)
I was going to add mango to this pizza, but the mango I had bought at the grocery store wasn’t ripe yet. (bummer!)
I was a little intimidated when I first saw the post because I thought it was going to be difficult and labor intensive, but that was not the case at all! Yes, it did take time, but it went relatively quick.
To top off the night, we watched a favorite of Craig’s: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Actually, Craig loves all/any of the Harry Potter movies, but he hadn’t seen the most recent one, so that’s what he decided to watch last night.
I think the movies are okay. I have read the books (except for the last one), and I like the books way better. (Craig has not read the books.)
So that concludes our recap of the day. It was a good one, and I think year number 26 is going to be a good one for Craig as well!
