For breakfast I made Pumpkin Pie Smoothies from Plant-Powered Families. Pumpkin pie in August, why not? Topped with homemade granola because I must chew.
As if I did not love our hood enough already, Jackson and Olivia have been given free indoor soccer lessons for the rest of the summer just for being members of the neighborhood soccer association. These lessons are normally out of our price range, so this is a wonderful perk as well as a great way for them to get their exercise without having to be out in the blazing sun.
Jackson already has a few seasons of soccer under his belt, but Olivia is playing for the first time this fall. She is super excited to be taking lessons in preparation.
A little soccer humor on the wall at the practice center.
For dinner I made a couple of different dishes I came across on Pinterest. Forbidden Rice Salad with sweet potato, pecans, and dried cranberries was too starchy for my taste, but Tony enjoyed it.
Speedy Sriracha-Peanut Soba Noodles with Spicy Maple Chickpeas was speedy indeed, and also very spicy even though I cut down on the spice amounts. Too hot for the kids, but Tony and I ate it up.
I also roasted some asparagus, which Jackson and Olivia ate up before Tony even got home from work! Soccer works up an appetite.
