It must have been the cleanse because I haven’t been able to keep myself out of the grocery store or kitchen all day! All I want to do is cook : )
My mom requested that I make her a batch of her favorite Apricot Oat Bars while I am home. No problemo! After making this recipe several times, I can basically spit it out in my sleep. Oats and apricots were destined to be together, wouldn’t you agree?
My friend Daisy came over for the afternoon. We put the bars together as we gabbed and drank Tazo Calm Tea.
I only had a nibble – I am still staying on the “lighter side” – and then delivered the batch of warm bars to my mom at work.
Post Script. Did ya’ll notice how I made progress on Goal #10? “Bake more often and for others”.
I have a bunch of lemons left over from the cleanse, so I thought I’d put them to use for dinner tonight. I ended up only using one…any amazing (healthy) lemon recipes out there?
(Raspberries would have been ideal in this salad, but I can’t get myself to spend $6 on half a pint!)
Light as pasta can be!
…plus a piece of toasted local bread with local chive chevre – yum!
Tomorrow’s Friday! Who’s excited? My grandparents and friend Hannah are visiting this weekend from out of town – yippee!
