We really enjoyed the show and having the opportunity to hang out together. It’s kind of weird that she’s Mike’s aunt because I really just think of her as a good friend. 🙂 We had some fun
shopping looking at ridiculously expensive stuff that would be fun to buy if we had several more 0’s in our bank account balances.
I have drooled online over Christian Louboutins for a couple years…and they had them just sitting out there on display in the Seattle Nordstrom! I picked one up and half expected a big guy in a suit to clobber me to the ground. I was like, “OHMYGOSH, I’m holding a Louboutin!!” I would be scared to death to wear those shoes! I’m sure I’d break a heel in less than 5 minutes…and then, there goes $700!
Of all the stuff we looked at (Chanel sunglasses, Coach purses, Tiffany’s stuff…so fun!!) Lululemon had the most realistic stuff for ME. I would be MUCH more comfortable in some awesome yoga pants and super cute tops & sweaters. I added a few items to my “once I start working” wishlist. 😉
After we hung out in Seattle for a while and met up with Mike & Aaron for dinner downtown, we came back to our house and stayed up late watching movies. I made Mama Pea’s Double Chocolate/Single Chin Brownies for dessert. (Probably the coolest recipe name ever!!) They’re yummy!! You should definitely try them.
We have found a church that we really like and they have a 5pm service on Sunday evenings that we’ve been going to. I LOVE being able to go to church at 5pm because we can sleep in and have a relaxed morning. Amy spent the night at our place, so this morning I wanted to make a special breakfast. I really enjoy being able to cook for people.
I had several peaches that were just about to become over ripe. So, I decided to make a breakfast peach cobbler (i.e. more healthy and less desserty). Since I also have a bunch of blueberries that Aaron and I picked earlier this week, I threw some of them in as well. It ended up being really good…and, since I tweaked another basic recipe so much, I feel like I can claim this one as my own and share it with you!!
Breakfast Peach Cobbler
Serves 4-6, depending on how big your servings are. 🙂
About 2 lbs of peaches, chopped up (peel is optional) or you could use frozen
Optional: 1/2 cup berries of your choice (blueberries worked really well for me)
3 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 cup honey (I didn’t actually measure this…just do a generous drizzle all over)
2 TBSP corn starch mixed with 2 TBSP water
2 TBSP butter or margarine
1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup flaxmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup almond milk (or soy…or regular, depending on your preference)
1/4 cup agave nectar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a pie plate or 8×8 square pan with some cooking spray.
Now, make the topping!
Put the flour, oats, flaxmeal, baking powder, and spices in a large bowl.
Cut butter into little pieces and use a pastry blender to mix it into the dry ingredients until it is broken up into pea-sized bits and well incorporated into the dry ingredients.
Combine your milk with the agave nectar and then pour it into the dry ingredients/butter mixture. Stir until combined and you’ll have a thick batter.
Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto the peaches. You can smoosh it out a little bit, but it will spread while baking. Don’t be too OCD about covering the fruit – it’s pretty to have some showing through. 🙂
