Attack of the stomach bug…

by Elizabeth on February 11, 2014

Good morning! I had a few extra minutes this morning so wanted to see how you all were doing and also thank you for the tremendous support you showed me after Friday’s post! We had an extremely low key weekend which was wonderful! We got in a family walk and brought bread to feed the ducks.

On Sunday, however, our family caught the stomach bug and it was not pretty! Noah’s been sick of course but not like that. We spent yesterday recovering and it worked out perfectly because the weather here is nasty. I can’t wait until spring! I have been managing to see the chiropractor almost daily and my back pain is slowly but surely improving! I would be thrilled to be 90% pain free by next week :-)

I did manage to do some baking on Sunday. I had a brownie mix from TJ that needed to be used, so I mixed it with a can of black beans and two eggs just to see how it would turn out. Honestly, they aren’t bad if you undercook them a bit. They’re just not as sweet and rich as a traditional brownie. I tried to make Joe guess what the secret ingredient was and he had no idea… Today we are headed to a new Costco they opened a few minutes away and prepping for Noah’s Valentine’s day party at school tomorrow :-) Have a great Tuesday!!!
What’s your favorite Valentine’s day treat?

Noah’s so cute! We only have Costco here so I’d have to go with them! I stocked up on berries and avocados yesterday there. Sorry to hear you’ve been sick! The Chiropractor helped me sooo much during pregnancy!

Glad you guys are feeling better!

We shop at Costco, because it opened several years before Sam’s Club here in my area. I need to hit it up again before the big snow storm hits tomorrow night!

I have always wanted to try the black bean in the brownies but I have been so scared! haha
I hope you are all feeling better this week. The stomach bug is NOT fun!

Glad you guys are feeling better. No fun to be #1 pregnant and sick and #2 have your little one be sick too. Super excited for V-day – Luke’s daycare has a little party so going to do something fun for that!

Glad your back is starting to feel better! I haven’t used black beans in brownies yet, but I did use chickpeas in a cookie dough dip a few weeks ago (I loved it, Tyler thought it was so-so) and I have a TJ’s pumpkin bread mix I’ve been meaning to make with them as well. I LOVED the Valentine’s Day parties at school growing up. And Costco all the way!

Oh no! Lots of my family and friends have been sick recently as well. Hope you all rest and recover quickly! I’ll keep you in my prayers.
We go to both Costco and SAMs, and we like them both since they sell different items that we love. :)

I really like the sugar cookies with frosting on them! They are so yummy :) I go to Sam’s Club because I have a membership there, but I really like Costco as well.
