This weekend my mom and my little sister, Stacy, came to town. It was so nice to see them, I love it when we have family come stay at the house 🙂
Mom, Chris and I road in the Big Creek Fall Bike Ride on Saturday. Of course it happened to be the coldest day we’ve had all year which made the morning ride quite unpleasant. I made it about 10 miles before I decided that I wasn’t having any fun but mom and Chris made it the whole 40 miles (nice job you guys!!). I felt bad not going the whole way but it just wasn’t any fun and I think if I’m not having fun what’s the point, right?!
We also watched a lot of football this weekend, including the bears game Sunday afternoon (DA BEARS!!)
While we were all hanging around the house Saturday night, I made some treats for Calie. Frosty Paws are super easy to make (I first found them here) and Calie seems to LOVE them.
32 oz. of plain yogurt
1 ripe banana (mashed)
2 tbsp of honey
2 tbsp of peanut butter
Just put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well blended. Then pour into a mold and freeze. Ice cube trays, eggs cartons and small cups will all work for this. Once solid, warm for a few seconds in hot water or the microwave to pop them out of the mold. Store in a bag in the freezer.
I found the egg carton pieces a little too big for Calie (she made a bit of a mess when trying to eat them). I had talked to Gabby about this after I made them the first time and she is so nice that she got me these awesome molds from Ikea when she was there last month!
With the smaller molds, I now have a ton a treats for Calie and had some fun making them. Next time, I’m going to try some different flavors of yogurt (maybe blueberry) to see if she likes it.
