I was in a bit of a rush to get ready this morning so I felt like I didn't have time to make porridge etc for breakfast. What I did eat probably took just as long to prepare anyway, but it was delicious so I'm glad I came up with it! A "banana split" with cinnamon peanut flour sauce, dried cherries and chocolate chips:
The peanut flour sauce worked really well as I could make it a slightly thinner consistency to spread easily (well, completely fill the gap between the banana halves really - I made lots!). I always find that peanut butter clumps if I try to spread it on cut banana. This was definitely dessert-for-breakfast...eaten with a spoon, this made my sweet tooth very happy! :)
Mum dropped Izzy back from her sleepover and we set off. Toby was a bit tired and grumpy, and Izzy hadn't gone to bed until 10.30pm at Mum's house (!) so we only stayed for a few hours - they are both having afternoon naps as I write this - but we had fun while we were there!
Free moving horse ride...

And many other things that went unphotographed because
After a bit of outdoor play we went inside to the more Toby-friendly soft play areas and to have lunch. I had my new favourite wrap/sandwich filling - Philadelphia, thinly sliced basil tofu and cucumber. Plus pineapple juice, a clementine and a Nakd bar.
Random eating shots...
We must have got to the indoor part just early enough to get a table. By the time we'd finished eating there were adults standing around waiting to grab a table as soon as someone started packing up!
We went back outside after lunch anyway, but didn't last much longer. Liam took Izzy on a couple of the bigger rides while I took Toby for a walk to look at some animals, and then we called it a day and headed home. I like that we have membership so we don't feel that we have to stay the whole day to get our money's worth - if we'd done that today that would've lead to very tired grumpy children and stressed out parents!! ;-)
This post feels short as I haven't eaten as much food yet - I think I'll have an afternoon snack in a minute and then I'll have a late dinner when I get home from the gym. I'm posting now though as I'm sure I'll be too exhausted later...I'll let you know how Body Pump went tomorrow...wish me luck!! :-D
Do you eat many sandwiches? What are your favourite fillings? When I first stopped eating meat, I got into a bit of a rut with my sandwiches - always cheddar and cucumber, egg mayonnaise, or brie & grapes if I was feeling adventurous! I've been starting to enjoy sandwiches/bagels/wraps/pittas again recently though - grated carrot and houmous, basil tofu with cream cheese and cucumber, roasted veg and houmous... - they might take a bit longer to prepare, but the taste is definitely worth it. And I'll always love a fried egg, cheese & ketchup sandwich if I'm at home to make it...delish! :-)
