What Happened To Yesterday?

Wow, I apparently got alot busier than I thought yesterday, and didn’t have a chance to stop in after my breakfast post! No worries, we’ll get caught up now 🙂

I did get in all my errands to Costco, the produce market, and the grocery store, and actually managed to spend slightly less $$ than I thought I would. Go me! Then I got myself absorbed in chores – laundry, sweeping, cleaning, vacuuming, etc. I would love to say my house is spic & span, but it still needs to some work – I need to clean out and organize the fridge/freezer today!

I managed to take a time out for a nice lunch outside with Sienna. It started with a tuna & dill pickle sandwich on some new (to me) bread that I picked up a Costco – Silver Hills “The Big 16” Sprouted Grain Bread.

Some very ripe strawberries that needed to be eaten ASAP.

And some of my favourite melon – honeydew!

Eventually I had to give up on cleaning and get myself into the shower, dressed, hair did, make up on, so I could get out the door to my usual Saturday night BBQ/Rockband festivities. I’m so predictable, I know. I brought along a beautiful piece of fresh spring salmon to throw on the grill, and I ate it with some leftover peanuty noodle slaw from Friday night. You know how it’s goes, no pictures. There was some Chardonnay consumed as well, and a few blue corn tortilla chips throughout the night.

I had a great sleep in this morning, after the usually Saturday night party upstairs ended around 2 am, and needed some fuel to get my Sunday started!

I picked up some of my favourite cereals at Costco since my cupboard was seriously barren. This morning I went with a bowl of Nature’s Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch. It’s been far too long.

And I broke out the new bread again, and made toast with crunchy peanut butter and my aunt’s homemade grape jelly.

With a glass of cranberry juice.

You know, I’ve never actually had grape jelly before? I’ve always been an adamant raspberry jam girl, but this was really good. Probably because it’s homemade as well 🙂

So let’s talk about this new bread.

Silver Hills “The Big 16” Sprouted Grain Bread.

I’ve had other Silver Hills products in the past, specifically their Squirrelly Bread. I found that one had too many seeds on it for my liking, and it seemed that their other breads were hard to come by. I can’t exactly say what made me pick up this bread this time around, perhaps it’s their new packaging? Or I was just looking for a change. Either way, there are some good things about this bread. One, it’s baked locally, in Abbotsford, BC. It is made with 96% organic ingredients – all of the grains in the bread are organic. Speaking of grains, what all is in here? Sprouted whole wheat, oats, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, millet, sprouted triticale, sprouted rye, sprouted barley, buckwheat, corn, brown rice, sprouted spelt, sprouted kamut, sesame seeds, amaranth, quinoa. That’s alot of good stuff! Each slice has 5 g of fibre, which ain’t too shabby! And it tastes really good, which really, is the most important thing. I always like finding good BC companies that I can get behind.

Well, It’s time for me to jet – more errands to get done today, more cleaning, some gym time, and I have a great dinner in the works 🙂 See you later!

    Homemade jams/jellies are always so, so good. My Mom use to make a wicked strawberry jam that we stirred into yogurt.

    That bread sounds pretty stellar. I love the “superman” on the packaging. Very fun!

    I’m a strawberry jam girl! Grape is okay but strawberry is the best 🙂

    Two thumbs up to local products! I love discovering things that are produced around me as well – gotta support that economy!

    Have you read anything about sprouted grains and health benefits? I am unclear as to what the deal is with “sprouted grains” . This is a question I get a lot and I never know the answer. The ingredients are all gluten free I notice, and the fiber content is nice! I’m assuming maybe 100-150 calories per slice? Anyway, thanks for posting the bread, I love trying new breads!

    I love squirrelly bread, I’ll have to look out for that 16 grain bread.

    Homemade jelly! That reminds me of the good ol’ days when my mom used to make strawberry jelly around this time of year…your grape version looks so tasty!
