The past 2 afternoons I have spent Christmas shopping at the Outlets and the Mall. I seriously need to stop this shopping or at least learn to do it all in one day.
When I entered Macy’s, I was greeted with Santa’s Mail Box and a table for the kiddos to write their letters to Santa. I held back from writing a letter, in fact, I was going to get in closer for an additional picture of the letters, but I heard a girl behind me ask if she could write one and I felt just a little creepy hovering over the table. 3 years ago when Mike and I were Christmas shopping, we stopped at the table so that I could write a letter to Santa. Yes, as a junior in college I asked Santa to make Jay, my college boyfriend, my official boyfriend.
I browsed around Le Gourmet Chef and fell in LOVE with these cookie dishes and holders. I’m debating purchasing a few for my family’s Yankee Swap, or just for myself. 😉
I also hovered over the graham cracker pretzels and gingerbread dip for a little too long. The combo of both flavors created a party in my mouth and I could easily see myself eating the entire jar in one sitting.
After a day of shopping I went to Gold’s to complete my legs and arms workout before going home to demolish my healthy 3-ingredient pancakes.
The texture, taste, and appearance were the best yet. So perfect. This time, I played around with the amounts of ingredients and am happy to report that this is a recipe to keep!
3 Ingredient Healthy Pancakes
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 banana mashed
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
All you have to do is combine the above ingredients in a bowl, whisk it together until you can get a majority of the coconut clumps out, and pour 2 equal sized pancakes on a pan. After that, just monitor the pancakes to get your desired look. I personally love them crispy and lightly browned.
*I do have to mention that I did need to add a splash of almond milk to the batter to thin it out a bit, so it technically should be 4 ingredient pancakes but I do what I want! 😉
Today hasn’t been too exciting to report a full-on novel, but for those who actually care, here are the highlights:
- 4 mile run, 1 mile walk, core and back work at the gym
- Christmas shopping
- the official start of the Christmas Pandora station.. woo woo! 🙂
- Christmas with the Kranks & Home Alone
Now I’m off to prep tomorrow’s meals before watching Hitched for the Holidays, a Hallmark Christmas movie with the hunkanator, Joey Lawrence. He better have his shirt off so I can drool over his lovely muscles! 😉
P.S, back to work tomorrow to end the holiday weekend. Eww.
