I had such an awesome surprise in my mailbox yesterday!!
Thank you Larabar!!!! I’m so psyched to try these awesome new flavors! Especially this little gem:
I grew up piling jif peanut butter onto a piece of bread with a small smear of jelly. Mmmm! I’m thinking this is going to bring back fabulous memories 🙂
Next up during my sweet sweet night was some cookie baking! We have an overflow of bananas right now – we always buy the over ripe ones on sale when we can find em and stuff them in the freezer for smoothies + baking. I’m always looking for new cookie and muffin recipes they are relatively healthy and these banana oatmeal chip cookies from Carrots n’ Cake fit the bill! I whipped these up while James ran out to pick up a chicken sandwich from his fave local pub so when he got home..surprise!
They were good too. I used a crumbled up dark chocolate bar for the chips and also added some raisins. James liked them too!
But really…I wasn’t craving cookies. What’ I was really craving..was ice cream.
Oh yes. That’s the infamous banana softserve. Can you believe that creamy decadent bowl came from 2 bananas being whipped around in a food processor? Okay and some chocolate syrup James put in there when my back was turned.
I did eat dinner somewhere in between there! But nothing special enough for a pic: quinoa + black beans + salsa + hummus. Some of my fave things mixed together.
Another bandwagon I jumped on: twitter! I was so opposed to this at first but it’s actually pretty fun! So feel free to “follow me” as all the kids are saying: @redheadyelowdog. There wasn’t room for it all of it so the second “L” in yellow got the boot.
Okay time to continue on with my to do list!! Have a good Saturday!
