• Pug Loaf

    Have you ever seen a pug loaf?

    I just had to share this photo! It totally cracked me up! 😆


    My afternoon seems like it’s going to get pretty crazy, so I wrote my lunch post after breakfast today. It’s weird writing about lunch before I have actually eaten it, but this method seems to work for me– otherwise, who knows when lunch will get posted!


    For lunch today, I packed a container of plain Chobani Greek yogurt.


    And some more “lentil surprise.” (This stuff is never-ending!)


    And, finally, I enjoyed a Chickpea “Blondie” that I baked this morning. The recipe is from the baking genius over at Have Cake, Will Travel. And, my goodness is this recipe delicious! You’d never know that chickpeas were thrown into the mix.

    Like usual, I made a few substitutions in the recipe: I used blackberry preserves instead of strawberry and all-purpose flour instead of brown rice flour. I also only made a half batch because I can’t be trusted around amazing goodies like this! Holy yum!

    My Claw-Foot Tub Con

    Who knew there were so many claw-foot tub lovers out there!

    I agree, claw-foot rubs add character and are a beautiful addition to a bathroom, but functionally, I don’t like them. From my experience, they’re hard to get in and out of, the shower curtain constantly sticks to you, and there’s no where to put your shower products. Plus, I’m not a bath person. I’d much rather take a long, hot shower than sit in a bath. Mal’s not a fan of claw-foot tubs either, so when we made our pro-con list last night, it was on the con side. So, that’s my reasoning. To each their own, right? 😉

    Busy afternoon ahead! See ya for dinnah! 😎

    oh no, that loaf is wierd, not sure if I like it……! Chickpea blondies sound interesting though, I’ll check them out.

    Oh! I’ve GOT to try those chickpea blondies! I swear… the (good-for-us) stuff we’re able to hide in dishes/desserts is crazy…

    We have a claw-foot, (which I love, even though I maybe take six baths per year,) and solved the product dilemma by getting a “bath caddy” — it lays across the back of the tub, and you can stack a TON of stuff in it! Check at a Bed Bath and Beyond type place — I’m sure they’ll have something that will work for you guys!

    We have a claw foot tub and I too hate it. I’ve learned to live with it for now. It was on our con-list when we bought our house, but like you, the pros outweighed the cons and we bought the house. We love it – but older homes always create interesting issues 🙂

    That pug loaf is way too cute!

    Personally, I love the look of the claw foot tubs, but my husband the plumber has had bad things to say about them so we will never own one.

    Of course, my dream is to have a tub that, when it’s full, actually covers your body. We have the tiniest tub in the world!
