Brunch for One: The Waffle Craving Edition

Wheat Bran-Flax Waffles with Cranberry Blueberry Sauce and Toasted Pecans

Waffles: Basic waffle recipe but I added 1/4 c of wheat bran, a 1/4 c of milled flax seed, and a touch of vanilla from Mexico

Sauce: Cranberries and blueberries with honey

And, devour!

The best part about making waffles for just myself, is that the leftovers can be frozen and popped into the toaster when I want to eat them again.

It's been almost a year since I posted on here. I just thought to come here today, and then realized that my background was still appropriate for the upcoming holiday.


I can't promise that I'll remember to post, or even have time for that matter. But hopefully I can post some pictures at the very least.

Yoga 101

Well, here we go again. I haven't done yoga since my freshman year of college at Hamline. And I had quit for a reason: IT HURT!

But, Groupon had a 5-class pass for the Yoga Eight studio, so I thought I'd give it another shot. I went to the beginner class last night. I was pleasantly surprised! The owner/instructor taught a very good beginner class. I actually felt good afterwards, especially my neck, which for my old lady neck is awesome.

Downward facing dog is still giving me problems, but it'll just have to be a work in progress, as will shavasana. For the life of me, I can't quiet my mind. "Acknowledge your thought and move on," the instructor said. Yeah...sure, I'll work on that. Maybe if I had a mantra to repeat it would help. I felt like Elizabeth in Eat Pray Love, yelling at her mind.

Try again next Tuesday!

O Christmas Tree

It's December 1st, and I have, therefore, lifted the Christmas music ban.

We put up the tree, and lights on the deck. I subjected the furry children to wearing their sweaters. Insert death stares.

And now it's past my bed time.

Love Always,
