I decided that Saturday I’m going to be lazy!

That’s right lazy, I’m not going to work and I’m not cleaning all day.

lazy-day-food_lazy-catsSo that’s what happened.

Now, lazy to me is doing half of what I usually do and perhaps leaving some stuff unfinished. And I feel like a lazy day is needed by everyone once in a while.

So this Saturday…

  • I didn’t go out to work!
  • I didn’t make breakfast *gasp!*
  • I only did 2 loads of laundry, folded, but I didn’t put it away. *double gasp!*
  • I didn’t even attempt to do dishes. *triple gasp!*
  • I only swept and mopped where the baby crawls around. *this is ridiculous gasp!*
  • I only made sure one of the kids was bathed.

Lazy Day Food

Lunch time. I was the only adult home so I had to deal with lunch time.

“I want a bagel.” “I want scrambled eggs…no no spaghetti.” “Drool, babble, drool, screech!”

Gah! Nope! I’m not cooking!

I opened the fridge…nothing…it was like on TV when you hear crickets and moths fly out. How did this happen!?

Alright, I looked in our tiny freezer…thank God for backup frozen stuff!

My go-to smoothies on the way!

I have to say, I love, love, love my baby bullet and $20 blender!

I had bags of frozen:

  • Apple slices
  • Peach slices
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Raspberries
  • And blueberries

Awesome!

I threw it all in a spaghetti strainer and ran it under hot water while I opened my chickpeas.

Then guess what happened? Yup, tossed all the fruit in the blender! I put in half the can of chickpeas in there too, because, why not?

It came out a bit thicker than a smoothie, and I could taste the apples pretty prominently so I served it in bowls and called it applesauce. Made some toast and there was lunch.

The kids loved it! Like actually! All of them! I even made a second batch!

Funny thing is, they asked if I can pack some in their school lunch.

Heck ya I can!

It’s cheap and healthy. Way better than processed ‘meat’ and cookies that the school charges $4 a meal for. And it’s lazy day food easy to make!

The rest of my day was spent kid free with my mom. I have no idea what the kids had for dinner, but at least they got something good in them for lunch and that seems like an ok accomplishment for my lazy day.
