Monday, March 21

Celebrate Mondays!

    Today is March 21! (Happy Birthday to my Brother-in-law!!!) How is March almost over? Where did the last 21 days go? Seriously, I barely remember. It is just a blur. Nonetheless, March is almost over. But that means spring is here and we are ready to welcome it with open arms. 
    I have the windows open and a nice little breeze blowing in and the sun comes and goes, the birds are chirping, my windchimes are singing, and the trees are budding. The smell of freshly mowed grass is in the air as well. It's warm without being too overwhelming, like being kissed on the face when you walk out. I love when we actually get to have a spring here in NC. It seems like most years we go from 40 degree weather one day to 80+ the next-- no, I'm serious. I'm not exaggerating on this one. It really has done that. But not today...ahhh, today. 

    For breakfast this morning, I decided to make french toast. Why not? While cooking these up, I remembered that we had picked up some strawberries at the grocery over the weekend. How to incorporate these into this breakfast? Then I remembered that we also had picked up some Greek yogurt. 

    I took out my food processor, rinsed off some strawberries, tossed 'em in, then scooped up some yogurt. After pulsing that for a minute or two, I wanted to add an extra healthy element, so I poured in a bit of wheat germ and then pulsed again. Ssshhhh! Don't tell the girls. :)

    The sauce turned out great on top of the french toast with Nutella. Great way to start off the day!

A few bites in. :)
