*Forgive me I have been working for 12 hrs again*
Thank god I love my job! I can't imagine doing this for something or some company I didn't love (actually I can-LIVED IT... glad to be done with that)
So another long day means another uneventful day with food right? WRONG
I got up early enough (barely) to cook 4... or was it 5?... eggs for breakfast...
THANK GOD TOO! That held me over for my 7 hr shift then I went home for dinner and Ben had already made our Taco Salads (remember, we had a plan for food this week... that's the 2nd on the list)
Taco Meat... yummy! (2 onions... 2 lbs of meat ... 2 packets of taco seasonings from POM *like trader joes* no additives)
The salad (Pre-mixing it up into a crazy pile of delicious... Pile of lettuce, pile of meat, queso, salsa, cheese, sour cream)
And then I decided to surprise Ben with some Chocolate *almond* coconut bites ... I **'d the almonds because I used mostly sunflower seeds. Our "Trail Mix" was really good... if you ate the almonds and walnuts... the sunseeds were NOT the best... so then there we were with like 1/4 of a ziplock of sunflower seeds with like 4 almonds and 3 walnuts... So i turned that into butter adding maybe another handful of almonds...we also rolled them in more coconut ... cuz I mean really? who doesn't want more coconut!?
Here are the pitturs:
The butter... it REALLY is so creamy!!! I can't wait to make it just with almonds!!!
The ingredients sans nutbutter... :) NUMS!
This is what they looked like... they were kinda warm and soft cuz I made them with FRESH MADE nut butter so it was warm.
This is what they looked like done! :D aren't they just BEAUTIFUL?? We rolled them in coconut when they were still sticky... OH and they aren't really very sweet... I look forward to tasting them made with almonds only... and I think it needs some more coconut-I LOVE this WOL!!!
So that is about it. I get to sleep in tomorrow which will be FABULOUS and I think Ben and I are going to go out on a date either tomorrow or Sunday... I am probably gonna go with Sunday... not sure yet... To have a TOTALLY relaxing day where I never take my PJs off is really really inviting. However, I am a better person when I at least DO something-not to mention I don't really want to go on a date and then have to go to work afterward... We'll see-STAY POSTED! dundundun! (that is my best attempt at a cliff hanger!)
Have a great day and wonderful weekend!
**ETA** GIVE AWAY!!! For the 10th 21dsd post and the 30th blog post... A HUGE HUG for whoever posts the best comment!!***
