National Pie Week and a Chilled Weekend

Have we all had a good weekend? I know I have, its been really quite relaxing all in all : )
 I worked Saturday morning over in Brighton and popped into my old place of work which was nice, I really miss the lady I used to work with so it was lovely to catch up. I also paid a visit to my papa when I got back to Hastings then it was home to spend time learning some course material. 5pm came round and I decided to go for a run instead of doing Insanity (don't worry I did yesterdays session today!). It was the best run I've had in ages, love it when that happens I could have run for ages but stopped while I was ahead and finished after 40 minutes. The evening was spent doing a little sewing and just chilling out, Dale was away fishing so I had the flat to myself : )

Today I was up and ready to do my Insanity workout for 7am! Ha Insanity on a Sunday oh yes!!!
A very sweaty start to the day but I'm not complaining : )

I definitely needed this bowl of loveliness after my workout, this was a mixed berry smoothie topped with homemade granola, yum! Straight after breakfast I got my stuff together and walked to my sisters to put her through her paces in an exercise session. It took me about 20 minutes to walk there and being up hill all the way I definitely didn't feel the cold now the weather has decided to turn again! 

I spent the rest of the morning cleaning the flat and hanging out with Dale when he got home before he went to see his mum. Then it was lunch time and I had an old favourite, ryvita topped with soft boiled eggs and dry fried mushrooms. Yes there was ketchup! 

Then I got to making tonights pudding. If you didn't know already the 4th to the 10th of March is national pie week and I had a lovely pie dish begging to be used.

I have to be honest and admit I didn't have all the ingredients to make and actual pie with a pastry crust so I thought I'd make crumble!

Raspberry and Mango crumble to be precise, its a new combo for me to try as a crumble but I'm pretty sure its going to rock, I don't think you can go wrong with these fruits : )

I made the crumble topping with a mix of whole oats, unsweetened desiccated coconut, almond flour, cinnamon, a little ginger coconut sugar and some coconut oil. I literally put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mixed it then added some coconut oil and mixed it together with my hands to make the crumble.

I'm pretty excited about this and can't wait to cook it and eat it later! I will have a full review of the pie dish and crumble soon!

For now its more chilling out before a busy week ahead, I have lots of forms and client stuff to go through in preparation for a very busy few months. 

I hope your all having a lovely day especially all you mamas : )


Have you made pie this week?
