Hey hey, it’s Monday! People say we Monday around! We’re too busy singin’ to….oh damn it’s Monday.

But that’s okay cuz we’re living in the moment now, right?!

I am surprised to say however that the weekend went by enjoyably slow. Saturday was spent gearing up for the Grace Potter concert at L.L Bean up in Freeport, FO FREE. Now I see where the town gets it’s name. 😉

Grace Potter Concert in Freeport

While she put on an awesome show, and it was free so I can’t complain, here’s me complaining. I spent the majority of the time trying not to step on the army of infants present, jumping up and down to see over jolly green giants on hills, and singing. All at once. No easy task.

At least I got this really framable close up of Grace post show.  Continue reading

Happy Tuesday Eve morning to you!

Sounds SO much better than the M word amiright?!

Last Monday may have missed the usual recipe postage, but it feels good to be back in the saddle, especially with a long awaited partner in recipe creating crime, my first DSLR camera!

I went with the Canon Rebel T5, since I’ve heard good things, read lots of reviews, and was well in a price range I was willing to pay for my novice DSLR camera skillz.

I have been longing to bite the bullet, and finally cave in and buy one, but could never pull the trigger on that locked and loaded Amazon shopping cart. FINALLY, the time was right, and now I’m a happy gal. The end.

Morning friends!

It’s officially begun. The part where summer flies by in the blink of an eye after the fourth. The 13th already?!

I’ve been trying to enjoy these warm and sunny weekends as much as I can since I know as soon as I’m done this cup of coffee it will already be November.

This weekend started bright and early (5 AM) to help out with the Old Port Half Marathon.

Me and about seven other gals rocked out and played water cup jenga all before 7 AM. The neighbors must have loved us.

It was great to see all those runners killin’ it in the 80 degree heat, but I am so glad I wasn’t one of them. I did however get the itch to sign up for my next race sometime in the near future!

The rest of the day was spent with my man-friend who came up to visit for the weekend. We did a whole lotta exploring, which included a random man playing the drums in a field….for hours, a hidden speakeasy, and the most gorgeous and absolutely amazing meals. But you’ll have to wait until Wednesday to hear all about that 🙂

I did however find some words I can live by.

After a quick brunch with my friendly man before he hit the road, I spent the rest of the day studying for law school.

Until I convinced myself that running in the 90 degree sun was a good idea.

 

 

It’s not. I somehow managed to do 3 miles, until I thought my face was going to melt straight off my head. Us runners, we crazy.

I found it only appropriate to reward myself with a cool post-run treat.

And then it was time for breakfast!

 

These sweet potato pancakes require just two simple ingredients, making them an quick & easy paleo and gluten-free breakfast...for dinner. Since I didn’t get my Sunday pancake fix in the AM, I had to make it happen one way or another.

And since I teased you about them last week on Instagram, I couldn’t let my pancake reputation become tainted.

I first fell in love with sweet potato pancakes when the Southern roomie and I took a road trip to Nashville, and waited an hour to experience the Pancake Pantry.

And since I never want to take the time and effort to make pancakes with more than a handful of ingredients, I found a way to get my fix with only two.

Two I tell ya! I suggest jazzing them up with some cinnamon, because it makes them all the more delicious, but who am I to tell you how to eat pancakes.

Having this little smoothie blender sure came in handy. If you have one, or one of the single-cup options with your blender I suggest using that. It made it getting these pancakes into my pie hole that much faster.

And a little butter never hurt a pancake. Peanut or regular. 😉
