Celebrating the simple things this week.
It has been above 80 degrees everyday so far.
The Summer concert series that takes place right outside of my house has started up again…complete with entertainment in the form of tight rope walkers!
Free outdoor theatre is available every night of the week.
[Shakespeare in the Park puts on two shows every summer…this year they are performing Richard the Third and A Midsummer Night’s Dream<-my favorite!….professional theatre for free? I am in love.]
Created a new variation of my Cocoa Mint bars….may I present Cocoa Orange!
makes 5 servings
1 medium orange
1 large ripe banana
1 cup finely processed wheat bran
1/2 cup oats
2 tbsp cocoa powder
water, as needed
Preheat oven to 350. In a food processor, puree orange and banana together until smooth. Next, add cocoa, bran, and oats. Add a bit of water if needed to get the processor going. Once all ingredients are evenly mixed together, spread mixture thinly and evenly in a rectangular shape on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and freeze for at least one hour. Remove from freezer, slice into desired shapes and store in the freezer.
Going to the see Brave tonight
[Yes it’s a kids movie…and YES I am excited to see it….plus, FREE AC people!]
I’m going blueberry picking tomorrow!
I am rolling in green beans from my garden!
[Pretty much the only thing that’s growing right now…but hey, I’m not complaining! I love me some green beans!]
I have a delicious giveaway for you all.
Well a chance to win that is
A while ago I reviewed GNU’s new flavors of their fiber bars…
[Blondie, Blueberry Cobbler, Carrot Cake]
I absolutely loved all three….not to mention their other flavors! Pretty much their whole line of products is on my list of staples! A lot of you contacted me saying you would love to try these bars but you couldn’t find them anywhere around you…well that is quite a dilemma in my opinion so I contacted GNU to see if they’d be willing to host a giveaway on my blog! And lucky for you, THEY AGREED!
Gotta give the people what they want, right?!
So a variety box of all their delicious flavors are up for grabs!
Other forms of entry-
Tweet up to once per day about this giveaway (with a link!) and leave a comment saying you did so.
Link to this giveaway on your blog.
Go to GNU’s website and tell me which flavor you would most like to try!
Giveaway ends Sunday night!
Good luck everyone! Have a winning rest of the week
Bonus nugget: I feel the need to share this since it was the most disgusting thing I have seen in public in a long time…as I was coming out of 7/11 today, I saw a man open up the ground beef package he just bought (who buys ground meat from 7/11 anyways?!) and start eating it with his hands! RAW MEAT…I almost barfed. Sorry if you’re eating while reading this! Just needed to share this with SOMEONE.
Definitely NOT a WIN.
