I've been a little off these past couple of weeks.. the days seem to be speeding by. I haven't been sleeping well.. and the days just seems to be blurring together. I feel uninspired and unmotivated. Not to say nothing has been happening.. life still goes on.
We have of course been reading.. D is reading The Mysterious Benedict Society and H is attempting to read The One and Only Bob, he still needs help with some of the words. We finished the first Harry Potter book and have now started the second one. Over the last few weeks we also watched a lot of movies based on books. We watched the first Harry Potter movie, The One and Only Ivan and Wonder. When asked, the answer was unanimous, the books were better than the movie. Hands down. The boys preferred the way they had imagined things, the movies skipped so many parts..
The weather has been all over the place.. and we are making the most of all the warm days that are popping up. In fact we even had an impromptu photo session one day.
I had a few recipe fails this week.. a cheesecake that didn't set, kebabs that were too dry.. but some hits as well. I had some leftover pizza dough and tried my hand at some money bread.. it was delectable.. so so unhealthy yet so good. M and I had to restrain ourselves to only one piece each, the kids devoured it and ate whatever was left for breakfast.
and I make this chocolate banana bread often, though I make it in the form of muffins. I added some peanut butter to half.. we loved the peanut butter addition though M preferred chocolate only.
The longer nights and cooler days gives us more time to indulge in our sweet tooth and we really must control ourselves but everywhere I look there are more dessert recipes just waiting to be tried out.
Wishing my fellow American's a Happy Thanksgiving.. stay safe everyone. We usually have a friendsgiving but with two of our friends being pregnant we will most likely do nothing.. I anticipate lots of eating, watching movies, board games and maybe some sleep.
