Sunday Funday

I love Sunday evenings.

Today started off with church. But not without a hearty Sunday morning breakfast-pancakes!

Obviously I was hungry, so a picture didn't happen until mid-meal

I used this recipe, but subsituted a flax egg for a normal one.  I hear of bloggers all the time making this easy sub, but never actually tried it for myself.  I must say I was pleasantly surprised!  The consistency of the pancakes was phenom.  I topped one with apple butter and one with almond butter; both with loads of cinnamon and chia seeds.  An A-plus breakfast fo sho.

After church (my first time back in over two months-so refreshing!) the fam headed out to Yard House for a midday meal.  It’s a draft house in downtown Houston, and the food is seriously on par.

Of course I failed to take pictures of our meals…I always feel so awkward whipping out my camera and snapping pics of food.  So until I grow the balls to do that, you’ll have to do with a measly description!  I hate having a big lunch, so I opted for a Mediterranean sandwich-portobello mushrooms, grilled red peppers and tomato, lettuce, and a chipotle sauce with feta on a poppyseed bun.  It was alot heavier than I had anticipated, but I still could not resist devouring a side of sweet potato fries.

Sundays are normally the day I take off.  Since I’ll be taking 9 days off in just a few days, I decided to hit it hard today.
