Yesterday was a tough day. No need to get into it as infants are unpredictable and some days will be better than others. I got nothing done other than eating, showering and some one handed facebooking. And of course quality time with a little lady!
Today was more productive with an extra set of arms. I was able to both shower and get ready to an amount of normalcy I have missed. I wrapped any gifts that are ready to be wrapped. I finished up some laundry and tried a new recipe. I have a bunch left to do before Christmas Eve and Christmas, but I’m doing much better than yesterday! I also changed up the blog…how do you like it?
The new recipe was Shakeology based. I wanted to have it for dessert, so I figured I would find something more indulgent than a shake. It was delicious, and perfect for post-wrapping!
Shakeology Peppermint Sorbet
2 scoops Chocolate Shakeology (I used vegan)
1 cup skim milk (I used almond)
4 to 5 drops peppermint extract
6 to 8 ice cubes
PREPARATION: Mix in blender until it’s really thick. Pour into container and freeze for 1 hour. (Makes 2 servings.)
I halved the recipe because it was just me and I knew I would eat the whole thing if I made two servings. It’s all about portion control and pre-portioning so you know you won’t over indulge! If this was something I could make and eat tomorrow (it would be too frozen then), I would have split it into two dishes to freeze. Putting it in one is just setting up for failure. A tip from me to you.
Here are our wrapped gifts beneath the tree. Also, our only holiday decorating this year. Next year, we will rock it.
