Yesterday was so refreshing! We ran errands in the sun and got home and Bunny planted a bunch of flowers. I can see some of our more interesting flowers popping up. Not that I don't appreciate all of the daffodils! I love them and there are so many in our yard. The cuttings really brighten up the house. If you enlarge this photo, you can see a flower poking out, ready to bloom!
I am trying to remember the name of this flower, and I know it is common, but I cannot think of it for the life of me. After gardening and housework we took a lovely walk and when we got home we were famished, and after last night's rich and heavy beer bread I wanted something a little healthier and light.
I made whole wheat flatbread to have with hummus. The recipe is here. It is insanely easy to make and very savory. The only thing I did different from the recipe was I sprinkled sea salt on top and I baked them a lot longer to make them more pita chip style. I served them with smoothies, which I haven't made in so long! I used to have one everyday after work last spring/summer. These were made with banana, mixed frozen berries, soy milk, hemp powder, and plain yogurt. I felt like a million bucks after I drank it.
Isn't Nigel just too cute? He looks like a bobblehead in these photos. I feel bad because right after these were taken he puked everywhere. He is a little under the weather, so I am keeping an eye on him today.
