Mitten Monsters and WIAW

Fall is definitely here, frost covers the ground and I am spending a ridiculous amount of time every morning trying to find missing mittens for Little. Why is it you can only find ONE of the two when you need them? Do the lost mittens go to the same place the lost socks go? Are Mitten Monsters responsible? Or has one of the mittens eaten the other in a cannibalistic ritual? I placing bets on the cannibalistic ritual.

Today is my first post with Peas and Crayons What I At Wednesday (WIAW) and I did not get photo’s of everything I ate. I’m hoping because it’s my first time WIAW-ers will cut me some slack. I promise to be on my game for next week.

Breakfast Part One (pre-morning run) I enjoyed a chocolate peanut-butter, honey and banana smoothie. 1/4c peanut-butter, 1/2c greek yogurt, Tbsp honey, 1 small banana, Tbsp chia seeds, Tsp cocoa powder and topped up with soy milk. No pictures but it was yummy!

Breakfast Part Two (post morning run) Banana Spelt Pancake. I apologize for the sad looking picture, my Nikon battery was charging and I had to take the picture with my obsolete Crackberry.



Lunch – Fritatta with spinach, tomato and feta cheese.



Dinner – Cod with lime and Quinoa with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and cheese.coddinner

I snacked on almonds, cheese (mmmm cheese!) and itty-bitty Halloween chocolate bars.  Because they’re so small they don’t count right? No pictures because let’s be honest … I forgot.


Have you gone on a mitten hunt lately? Where do you think single lost mittens go?

What are your plans for dinner tonight?

  1. I lose mittens like it’s my job! I’m now on a mission to make mis-matched mittens trendy :) Dinner will likely be leftover pasta eaten in the 5 minutes I have between work and my baking class!

    • Does mitten losing pay well? If it does I’m getting Little in to their union ASAP because University isn’t going to pay for itself! Thanks for stopping by Davida. 😀
