The rest of our adventurous day was a lot more low key and much more typical of a relaxing Sunday.
We played games…
And did some baking…
Granola bars are really hard to get just right and this is probably the closest I’ve come to delicious granola bars that actually stuck together without being too doughy or too hard. Plus the granola bar batter was pretty darn tasty.
My sister and I also prepped black bean burgers for dinner in the afternoon. We made one big batch and then split them up so Ryan and I would have some and she and my dad would have some for dinner when they got home.
Leslie and my dad left our place close to 3 p.m. I was sad to see them go! Family visits are always too short.
Ryan and I spent the remainder of the afternoon working around the house and walking Sadie.
Dinner came together in a flash thanks to the prep work Leslie and I did earlier in the day.
Black bean burgers for all!
They fell apart a little, but the taste was really, really good.
Leslie and I made them using this recipe, which contained minimal ingredients. The burgers were made of black beans, brown rice, salsa, chopped onion and an egg. Yum.
Later this evening, Ryan turned to me and said, “I want ice cream.”
Music to my ears!
We put Sadie in the car and drove to Dairy Queen where we ordered a large Blizzard to share.
Oreo + Reese’s combo. It didn’t stand a chance.
Time to go enjoy the last of the weekend!
