Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Any fun plans for tonight? Mandi & Bryan are coming over for some good eats and to hang. I am very excited!!
I am meeting up with my group fitness manager (GFM) and another group fitness instructor friend this morning for breakfast (to my favorite spot , of course). Since it was recently my head GFM’s birthday, I picked her up a very cool new southern- themed cutting board and made her up a baked good treat. I decided since I am sweet-ed out, that she probably is as well. So, I decided to make her a sunflower and pumpkin seed quick bread based on this recipe.
As Amanda describes in the recipe, the dough does look like oatmeal that needs a little milk added:
and the final product:
The bread looks and smells fabulous! The only change I made to the original recipe was to use sunflower and pumpkin seeds (vs. just sunflower seeds).
Couple other fun items of note: 1. Checkout this adorable set of measuring spoons Josh’s Dad picked up for me in Disney:
2. A big thank you to two friends who sent me fabulous packages recently!! First, my friend Kelley who sent me an adorable spatula, measuring spoons, a fun book & a soup mug:
And the thoughtful Janetha , who sent me this amazing looking lemon emulsion! I LOVE lemon flavored baked goods and can’t wait to use this. Thank you thank you!
3. And, just in case you haven’t had enough, here is a Smile Box I made on our Disney trip. It contains three short videos that I took on my new Flip Cam (LOVE!). FYI: George is Josh’s amazing Grandfather who recently passed away- you will see his name mentioned in the video.
