Picky Kids Peeking…

I learned yesterday that I  have some young readers out there… namely, my kids!  Yesterday afternoon after school my youngest, Stinky freaked out looking for the apple pie.  Apparently he doesn’t always READ the content, but he does look at the pictures.  After he searched the fridge, and cupboards, and even the cold room and freezer he finally was willing to listen to me, and go through the post.  I explained I had a fake apple pie, and that photo of the pie slice was not mine.  After we finally got everything straightened out I agreed to make him and Bubba one of my psuedo apple pies for dessert.  It was a healthy dessert option and a win with both kiddos!

Supper last night was some Salmon we brought back with us from BC, and a reproduction of Pat’s Salad I had at there as well.


Ahh… heaven.  I actually had that salad for lunch yesterday as well, with half a hummus, red pepper, and gouda sandwich.

Today Picky Hubby has been sleeping, and I ruined a couple batches of cookies by forgetting about each pan in the oven… How does someone keep forgetting!?!  Yes I am talented!  Once the kids are out of school we will be off to pick up some lumber and supplies… Guess what we are doing this weekend??

…If you guessed slaving over our house, you guessed right!!  Fingers crossed something actually gets DONE!!

I will leave you with a recipe for that amazing salad… if you try it, please share if you liked it or not! Measurements are a little estimated… if you like more avocado add more, or black beans, or tomatoes ect!


Avocado Black Bean Salad

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 can black beans rinsed
  • 1 large tomato or  a couple smaller ones, diced
  • Sprig of cilantro (I used freeze dried stuff and it turned out)
  • green onion chopped (1 stalk or more if you prefer spicier)
  • tsp of lime juice
Stir and enjoy!  It tends to get even better with flavour as it marinates in itself in the fridge.  The lime juice prevents the avocado from turning brown.

What are your plans for the weekend??  and/or Do you enjoy home improvement projects??
