Hey guys, how have you all been? I’ve had so much yummy food over the fall break!
Thursday night dinner consisted of chicken, yellow squash, rice, and broccoli.
Then I made these delicious oatmeal bars. My mom got the recipe from a friend.
Chewy Oat Bars
3 tablespoons margarine or butter (I used Smart Balance)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. ground flax seed
Preheat oven to 375*F and spray or grease your pan. Cream margarine and sugar. Add honey, oats, salt, and cinnamon. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Bake for 17 minutes. While the bars are still warm use a knife or pizza cutter to cut into bars. Allow to cool before you serve.
These are my new obsession. The recipe only made 6, so I made more last night and added sliced almonds this time.
Friday, Mom took me to Trader Joe’s. She had her fall break, too, and so we decided to have a fun day and go out for lunch. We settled on lunch at Which Witch, a lovely little sandwich shop that has over 50 different warm sandwich options.
I got the chicken pesto sandwich with provolone cheese, lettuce, caramelized onions, and tomato. This is most definitely in the top 10 best sandwiches of my life.
Friday night, I went over to Morgan’s house and we made pizza with Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza crust.
I won a contest from Applegate Farms a couple weeks ago, and they sent a few discount coupons along with the prize. So I got some Applegate Farms Ham while at TJ’s.
I made a toasted ham and cheese sammie on a sandwich thin.
And leftover broccoli and rice on the side.
A delicious Saturday afternoon lunch.
There were a couple too many of these consumed over the weekend. So, so good!
After lunch, Mom and I went to paint pottery.
So many options!
I chose a purple theme.
That’s the bottom of the plate. I forgot to get a picture of the top.
Thanks for going with me, Mom! It was fun.
Last night’s dinner was one of my favorites—pasta with pesto and shrimp.
Roasted asparagus on the side.
This will most likely be our last batch of home made pesto of the year—so sad!
It’s been such a fun weekend, but it’s time to get back to school and back to reality now.
I hope your Sunday is going great!
