A Marvelous Weekend With A Delicious Banana Bar Recipe!

Posted Jun 10 2013 6:45pm

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend.

We had a great weekend at home, despite for the daunting task of packing (which we still have lots more to do!). We move in two weeks; I can’t believe it!

Before I share some of our weekend highlights, I’m linking up with Katie for another Marvelous In My Monday. Thanks, Katie for always hosting!

Here are some of the marvelous things that happened this weekend…

Kicking off the weekend on Friday afternoon by cooling off in my parents’ pool. Keenan was so excited to swim, he literally stayed in the pool from the moment he woke up from his nap until dinner (3 hours!).


Saturday morning, we enjoyed a lazy morning of pancakes made with oat flour (a new recipe coming soon!), an iced coffee and then a trip to the farmer’s market.

To beat the horrendous heat that struck Northern California this weekend, we took a break from packing and enjoyed some delicious ice cream at one of the best places in the area, Gunther’s Ice Cream Shop ! Keenan was SUPER excited for his ice cream cone!

For dinner on Saturday night, my husband and I enjoyed an “at home date night” making bison Greek burgers with oven-baked zucchini chips (another recipe coming soon!) followed by watching Silver Lining Playbook (such a good movie!).

On Sunday, my husband let me sleep in a bit and treated me to a wonderful breakfast of eggs and homemade oat flour bacon and cheddar biscuits with a nice cup of coffee topped with his whipped cream. Everything was delicious! Sorry, I was so excited he made me breakfast that I forgot to snap a picture!

In the afternoon, we took a break from packing and Keenan helped my husband make cherry ice cream.

After ice cream, Keenan and I baked some yummy Gluten Free Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting !

We each enjoyed a bar for breakfast this morning; they were SO good!

Last night, my husband cooked another delicious meal for us, a wonderful grilled Swiss chard salad topped with Italian chicken sausage and feta cheese with another one of his tasty biscuits.

Oh, and I can’t forget Keenan’s awesome request that surprised my husband and me on Saturday! Since we were planning to have our “at home date night” after Keenan went to bed, I asked him what he wanted for dinner. I asked if he wanted a homemade pizza and he requested a chicken salad instead! My mouth dropped, as he had never requested a salad before! He likes to eat the artichokes, olives and avocado in my salads, but never a bowl for himself. So, I made him a spinach salad loaded with carrots, tomatoes, avocado, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, feta cheese and turkey tossed with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. He loved it so much that he finished his whole bowl in a matter of minutes! I was SO pumped, because I have always hoped my kids would love salad like me. Keenan seems to be following suit!
