My Friday 4-1-1

4 things I've seen or done this week:

  1. I decided to fill a blank wall in my hallway. After spending lots of time on Pinterest, Instagram, and watching HGTV it's tough for me not to go out and buy everything I see. I got some photos printed in black and white and here's what I did with them. I am now trying to figure out what my next project will be. 

2. I started reading the novel Little Fires Everywhere after listening to Brene' Brown's Unlocking Us podcast with the author Celeste Ng. If you are a fiction writer, like me, I would suggest you listen to it. It was really good. I'm in chapter 2 of the book and it is great so far. There's a series on Hulu with Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon, so if I like the book, you will soon see me writing about watching that too.

3. Did you know almonds are a great source of melatonin and magnesium so eating a few before bed helps you sleep better?

ME neither. I have a tough time sleeping sometimes so I read up on some things to help me out. So, I did a cup of sleepy time tea and ate a handful of almonds about 45 min before I went to bed, AND I SLEPT ALL NIGHT. I did this for about two nights this week and it worked. If you try this let me know how it works for you. 

4. I made these muffins Monday with the apple pulp from some apples I juiced.

As promised, when I posted them on my Instagram feed, here is the recipe:

About one cup apple pulp (I left the skin on)

One cup almond flour

One cup almond flour

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup Greek yogurt

1/4 cup almond flour

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup flax seeds

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

I also had extra walnuts, so I threw them in as well (I didn't measure them)

Preheat oven to 350F

Mix all ingredients together

Spoon mixture into a greased muffin tin or into cup cake liners. I used these silicon ones so I can use them over and over.

Bake for about 20-25 or until you can insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.

Serve warm or cooled.

1 quote or scripture:

Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her. Luke 1:45
