So this is how last night went (warning: this is absolutely ri-donk-u-lous hahaha)
Okay, I must confess, this was not a creation that I took part in devouring — that was The Man — ALL OF IT!!! Ahhh to be 6’4″ …..
Anyways, as we all know I am slightly obsessed with my main man PB Loco so therefore I was uber-excited to crack this puppy open and give it a whirl! (I had some tastes guys, sue me)
This PB tasted just like a caramel apple, seriously peeps. Not like fake-y caramel apple flavor (as we all know is bleck) but like the real deal itself! The one thing about this jar vs. the cookie dough flavor is that it had to be stirred, had all the liquid on top… oh well, The Man was fine with that bc it actually made it easier for drizzlin’!!!
PB Loco – you’ve done it again!
This morning I woke to RAIN!! Nooooooooo it’s friday – grrrrr 😦
So I decided to cheer my spirits with some Christmas oats — yea, I know, doesn’t make much sense considering it’s September but just roll with it!
The mix today included some of the leftover coconut milk and it was AWESOME! Plus I did them stove top — lovveeee.
- 1/3 cup oat bran
- 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk + 3/4 cup water
- 1/8 cup light coconut milk
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp pumpkin butter
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 tblsp peanut butter
I was singin’ jingle bells after that…. really. No, not really. But that would have been amusing 🙂
So this brings us to….. fall vegetable fun fact time!!
DAY 2: SWISS CHARD!!!
Swiss Chard vs. cookinfanatic —- never had it before!!
If vegetables got grades for traditional nutrients alone, Swiss chard would be one of the vegetable valedictorians (I read this fo realz’ online peeps). The vitamin and mineral profile of this leafy green vegetable contains enough “excellents” to ensure its place at the head of the vegetable Dean’s List.
- Low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol
- High in Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, Manganese, Thiamin, Folate and Zinc.
How the heck to pick the good stuff out?
Crisp, tender leaves that are not overgrown. Bright color.
How to store?
Keep refrigerated in plastic bags to maintain moisture. Rinse as many times as necessary to remove sand. Remove thick, tough leaves.
Not exactly sure what’s on the menu for Din tonight, but I’m feelin’ the creative juices flowin’! Goin’ to try to use up some items in the house and a veggie/turkey mexican taco/casserole/burrito recipe is currently being built in my mind 🙂 Tune in to see!
But for now I gotta go chow down on some lunch real quick (huge turkey sammies and brownies provided) — no pics today considering I’m in a conference room of 60+ and they may find me to be a bit crazy haha — although someone has already asked me if I needed a pic of their fruit plate (obvi sarcasm was involved in that convo haha)
HAPPY FRIDAY!! 🙂 🙂
