It’s Monday again! The weekends always seem to pass by so quickly. And on that note… the summer seems to be passing by extremely quickly! :( Boo. I love my job. But summer is just so nice.
Today was a pretty busy day in the Confessions house. This morning, I got up early to get Sadie off to school. She didn’t get to go all last week and she really missed her friends and her teacher. She was so excited to go today! Once I dropped her off, I came home to make breakfast and coffee, and to prepare my grocery list.
Breakfast was an egg-and-spinach scramble with almonds on the side. Nom… have you tried this out yet? It’s seriously a power breakfast. While I ate, I planned out my grocery list. This involved looking at a few websites like Nom Nom Paleo and Everyday Paleo. I’ve spent the past few nights looking at recipes and thinking about what we might eat this week.
Then I hit the stores. I had to visit 2 stores today: Harris Teeter and Earth Fare. I did most of our shopping at HT, but I had to get some Kombucha at Earth Fare. (Harris Teeter doesn’t sell it.) I really don’t drink soda. Most of the time, I drink water. But occasionally I need something different, and Kombucha does the trick: fizzy, tart, and refreshing.
By the time all the shopping was finished, it was lunchtime.
Leftover chicken, watermelon, carrots, and Sunbutter for carrot-dipping.
Then I did something amazing. I made mayo. I attempted this once before (prior to owning a food processor), but it didn’t work. I got a sauce instead. But now I am the proud owner of a food processor, and I made this amazing light, silky mayo.
Can you believe oil and an egg turn into this?
(Yes. My mayo is stored in a holiday jar. Note to self: get some plain, clear jars.)

And this mayo made my lettuce wraps extra delicious tonight.
I’m not the only one who did something amazing today… check out what Miss Sadie did for the first time today…
Another proud mama moment.
A couple of notes to the readers:
I did more photo editing tonight than I usually do. I love editing, but I’ve gotten lazy about doing it lately. How did you like tonight’s food photos?
Also… did you notice the new header? What do you think?
