Weekend Recap: Chicago

In case you missed it, Friday was Admiral's 2nd Birthday!  Kevin and I got him a new football for his birthday.  We dropped him off at my parents on Friday night because Kevin and I were headed for Chicago on Saturday morning.

We went to Chicago to help move Kevin's cousin in to his new apartment.  After a hard day's work (by the boys, not me), we of course headed to Giordano's for the best pizza ever.

We left Chicago Sunday morning, picked up Admiral, and then headed home.  I ended up making some super yummy, super easy, super healthy cookies on Sunday night.

2 ripe bananas
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Grease non-stick baking sheet
3.  Mash ripe bananas
4.  Mix in oats, then chopped pecans
5.  Spoon tablespoon size amounts on to baking sheet
6.  Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and enjoy!

I told you they were easy!  You could even add some chocolate chips if you wanted.  They are great for a quick breakfast or a yummy snack.

I hope you all had a great weekend.  I'm linking up with Sami to share my weekend recap, and you should too :)
