Right now I am living in the town of Renoville. We are currently putting new flooring in our upstairs. Although I am very excited, I want it to be over!!! The house chaos has meant throw together dinners and little creativity in the kitchen. Having said that, I ran across a recipe for a gluten free, sugar free, dairy free bread. My favourite part about this bread is that it is very high protein and high fibre, so unlike other breads it keeps you full. The recipe can be found here.
This bread makes a great snack. 

I made my own almond meal by blending almonds in the food processor.

I topped mine with almond butter, chia seed and a little dribble of honey.

Birthday fun!

Last week was my birthday week and as usual Andrew ensured that it was full of celebration. On my actual birthday we went and saw...

I bawled!!!! I highly recommend this movie, however, if you are prone to crying wait until it comes out on video. Seriously people I was swallowing my sobs as tears streamed down my face. Andrew thought maybe it wasn't the best choice for a birthday film!

Other birthday festivities included...
Bowling!!! It was my first time 10 pin bowling; I need some practice

We visited some bead stores in Toronto. I left with a little bag of goodies to get my craft on!

Shellac manicure. Attention ladies if you haven't tried Shellac manicures yet get on it! They last for 14 days without chipping. Bonus: they are really shiny too.
And lastly wine, lots of wine...
