Saturday Morning Grumpy Face

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 17, 2010

Can you believe it is already Week 5 of the Farmer’s Market? It makes me sad because that means summer is flying by too quickly! I can not believe that it is July 17th. I just can’t! *sniff.

Last night, Eric and I were running a couple errands and we had the windows down in the car and the music cranked (Billionaire! bahaha). It was one of those ‘I love summer so unbelievably much’ moments. There was a gorgeous sunset and the air was crisp and fresh. I felt like sticking my head out of the window, but I restrained myself.

Today’s Glo Bar flaaavas:

 IMG_2852

Chocolate Peanut Butter macaroons!

IMG_2856

Truly unbelievable…I wish I could give all of you one!

IMG_2860 

NEW this week…

IMG_2831

Presenting Crunchy Peanut Butter Maple Macaroons

IMG_2833

The crunch = rice crisp cereal. Oh gosh they are so good. They also have maple butter in them! Mmmm.

I also modified my Cherry, Banana, and Coconut Butter Bread recipe and made Dark chocolate chip banana bread

IMG_2840

IMG_2847

Modifications:

  • Added 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • Used maple butter in place of coconut butter
  • No cherries (they didn’t have any organic at the market last week)

 

Awesome.

IMG_2844 

I sliced it up and wrapped them up for sale individually.

I woke up with the song ‘Stay’ by Lisa Loeb in my head. It’s still in my head as I type this. We heard it in a store last night and I sang every word to the song and Eric goes…’What song is this and why do you know all the words…?’ LOL, men….I tried explaining to him that the song was the anthem of my 90’s, but he didn’t get it.

This morning I had to pull out all of the ‘wake me up’ stops.

Wake me up 1)

Tea in a CAT mug.

IMG_2915

It’s the little things.

Wake me up 2)

Breakfast this morning was Vegan Overnight Oats (1/2 cup oats, 1.25 cup almond milk, 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/4 scoop Amazing Grass Chocolate Amazing Meal) along with a chopped banana I added in afterwards.

  IMG_2910

So thick and doughy!

IMG_2912

Couple things to note:

  • I doubled the chia seeds from 1 tbsp to 2 tbsp for more satiety today
  • I whipped the VOO for about 3-4 minutes with a whisk before placing it in the fridge. I swear this made it thicker!
  • If you are having problems with your VOO being too liquidy, you need more chia seeds! I had to add an extra 1/4 cup of milk this AM because mine got too thick!

 

Wake me up 3)

My favourite MAC Select concealer for the eyes

IMG_2925 IMG_2926

I resorted to cutting open the end to get it all out. Ladies, don’t try to act like you don’t do this! If you have tried this MAC cover-up you will know why I did that.  :biggrin:

I also packed a couple In a Jiffy Curry Chickpea burgers for us to snack on around lunchtime! I love these so much I am thinking of turning them into a Savoury Protein Breakfast Bar.

Well, I better pack up the car and head to the Oakville Organic Market..see you later!

PS- Don’t forget to enter the picture poll– there is a tie right now…it’s going to be a close one!

Oh my gosh, YES. That song was totally my anthem in sixth grade. I loved the whole Reality Bites soundtrack.

Good luck at the market today! And yes, I can’t think about how far into summer we are without crying a little too :-(

Angela, you are a genius w. all these new flavors/products. I think a savory breakfast bar is a GREAT idea!!!

Do you use MAC powder or any of their other products?

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 17, 2010 at 6:45 am

Nope, the concealer is the only thing I use by MAC…I got hooked on it before my wedding in 2008!

Good luck at the market today! I’m half tempted to trek to Canada JUST to try some Glo stuff :P Oh, and to say thankyou for bringing VOO and spelt pancakes into my lfie!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is July 17, 2010 at 7:29 am

Oooh I have a question about the MAC cover up – I use all MAC products too and you can recycle the empty tubes for a free product. I wonder if it’s cut if they will still take it??

Whenever I see the pictures of your Farmers Market food it makes we wish I could go to Canada just to try some, they all look so tasty!!

Reply

Liz @ Tip Top Shape July 17, 2010 at 8:18 am

Ha, I have never cut open the back of a make-up thing like that but I do go to pretty great lengths to get the last of my toothpaste out.

All that foods looks pretty darn good! Especially those Glo-Bars! Do you ship them to Chicago by chance?? Because I swear I have seen something similar at the Whole Foods here and Farmers Market.

Reply

Erin July 17, 2010 at 8:21 am

These look great! I’m sad that farmer’s markets will be gone soon, too, but we do actually have a year-round market that sells local, seasonal produce.

Reply

Michal July 17, 2010 at 8:21 am

I hope your Market customers keep up the buying! Do you have a physical bakery store, or is it all online?
By the way, I just tried a VOO SoftServe where I added cinnamon to my VOO before refrigerating it overnight. I don’t use any chocolate so maybe that’s why this is blowing me away! I’m going to spazz slightly about it on my blog later :-p
Have a great Market day!

Have a great time at the market! The MAC photos totally cracked me up – I ALWAYS did that when I used Lancome under eye concealer as regular concealer for many years. I swear, it got another few weeks of usage!

hahah yup they last over 2-4 weeks when you cut them open!!! Not sure about the sanitary aspect of that though…lol

Hi Angela!
Just thought I would stop to say hello. Your blog was recommended to me by a friend yesterday while hiking up Grouse Mountain (the Grouse Grind in Vancouver BC Canada). I’ve recently made the decision to begin running regularly and eating healthier. It looks like your blog is going to be really helpful!!
Thanks and good luck with everything!

I love MAC! I have 2 Trunk Fulls of it. The crazy part is as a mom, I don’t wear makeup hardly ever, except on photo shoots or a special night out :) But I love my MAC!

Farmer’s Market, love it but it’s year round here (I am totally spoiled in San Diego)…and yes, summer TOTALLY is flying by!

Have a beautiful day, Angela!

I made my first batch of VOO yesterday and while I liked them (but didn’t LOVE them), I’m actually craving them this morning after seeing your photos. I think I’m going to turn into of of those crazy VOO girls…totally a good thing!

Question- what size (in cups) food processor do you usually use? I am thinking mine is too small for a lot of your recipes so I want to look into a larger one. Mine is only about 2 cups now.

AngelaOSG July 18, 2010 at 2:56 pm

Mine is a 12 cup Kitchen Aid

Holy Toledo Batman….Crunchy Peanut Butter Maple Macaroons and Chocolate Chip Banana Bread all in one blog! YUM YUM is all I gots to say to that! I wish we had an Angela Glo Bakery at our Farmers Market….I’d so visit every Sat. Oh well, I’m out of Run Glo Bars, except I saved one for part of my pre-race meal tomorrow…woohoo, so it’s time to put in another order. I love MAC makeup, but haven’t tried any of their concealers or powders. I use their shadows and liners is about it. I’m so darned dedicated to Clinique for all my other stuff, have been since high school. I do like their recycle program, I think that’s awesome!

Good luck on week 5!!!

Hi Angela,
I was just going back and reading some of your past posts – I’m an avid reader but I don’t comment much. I just wanted to really encourage you to try to sell some of your photos! They are soooo beautiful – I know I would definitely buy some to put in my kitchen – it would probably encourage me to eat healthier if I saw those gorgeous pictures of strawberries and peas on my wall!
Good luck today at the Farmer’s market!

p.s. random question: what’s your favorite green monster recipe of all time?

Reply

AngelaOSG July 18, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Hmmm probably 2 cups spinach, 1 cup almond milk, 1 frozen banana, 1 tsp maca, 1 tbsp carob powder, 1 tbsp…wait who am I kidding I cant pick!!!

Jenn @ So Very Fabulous July 17, 2010 at 1:06 pm

The macaroons look absolutely divine! So does the dark chocolate chip banana bread. I’m hoping to try making the Cherry Banana Coconut bread recipe this weekend. Hopefully today if I have time!

You gotta get every last bit of that concealer out of there! Looks like you’ll have used up yours pretty soon. I love MAC’s Back to MAC recycle program where you can bring in 6 empties from used up products and get a free lipstick, gloss or eye shadow! I’ve got a stack of empties waiting to be turned in for some new goodies. :)

Hope the afternoon went well and you and Eric stayed cool :) xoxo P.S. The peanut butter chocolate macaroons didn’t last the ride home haha! Delicious!
