Life feels like it’s spinning at 6453 klicks per hour these days.

Some things are happening in our lives that I can’t tell you about just yet, but will soon. Don’t you hate when people say that? I do. I hate myself for saying that.

No one likes a tease, including me. But here I am being a tease. ;)

I can tell you it’s home and career related for us (not baby related), but that’s about all I can divulge at this time. Unless of course you get me drunk and spill the beans like I did to every breathing soul that I chatted with at the wedding. I’m a good secret keeper like that. Give me a 5.5% beer and I’ll tell you my life story.

The summer is speeding by though! Suddenly, it’s August 9th, I’m craving pumpkin like it’s Thanksgiving, and I’m in serious trouble if I don’t buy Eric a kick-butt birthday gift by the 11th. We’re also hosting some Irish family this week and capping the weekend off with another big family BBQ. The weeks are flying by!

Eric said, “Ange, don’t worry! You don’t have to get me anything for my birthday.”

Oh, what a relief. I thought I had to for a minute!

Wait. This is a trick.

I thought only women played the “you don’t need to get me anything” card. Sometimes Eric even plays the “you don’t need to get me a card” card. Clearly, he wants to test me. Or he hates my cards.

Or maybe he wants one of those sentimental homemade gifts this year.

Oh noes.

Does a homemade meal count?

I will scour Pinterest hoping inspiration strikes. If all else fails I’ll just make one of everything on my Food board and send him into a food coma until he forgets all about birthday gifts.

Yes, food coma it is.

Double Chocolate Torte, you’re next on the list.

I recently made this cheeze sauce for my family last week and everyone devoured it! They spread it on sandwiches and loved it as Mac n Cheeze. The kids and adults both gobbled it up!

Unlike birthday gifts for your significant other or alcohol and secrets, you can’t go wrong with this dish.

For dessert, I made something that looked much more naughty than it really was, made primarily from GROUND FLAX and a few other all-natural ingredients.

I prefer to roll them in sweetened coconut because the flax balls aren’t very sweet and it gives them a nice pop of sweetness on the tongue, however unsweetened coconut works too. Freeze them for 30-60 minutes to set and enjoy!

The chopped almonds give them a little crunch too and the cup of flax lends an earthy, nutty flavour with a hint of sweetness. You know what else I love about them? They pack in a ton of healthy Omega oils that aid in glowing skin, hair, and nails. Hence the name, Glowballs. :)

I’m with you on this summer speeding by but I kind of don’t mind because I’m SO excited for Fall baking – apples, pears, pumpkin, oats! I absolutely cannot wait.

And also? You are a tease – and now I’m dying to know what it is!! I’m sure it’s wonderful though so I’m preemptively happy for you (and will be in real time when the secret is out as well!) :)

Christie @ Running Through Peanut Butter August 9, 2011

Those glowballs really do look naughty, but sound quite healthy! I can’t wait to try them! I bet the addition of peanut butter in those balls would also be delish!

Question for you: Where do you find these different kinds of pasta (kamut, brown rice, etc.)?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 9, 2011

I buy it at Superstore :) Natural food section

Tara August 9, 2011

I’m glad to hear someone else already has pumpkin on their mind! I am counting down the days til I can crack open my pumpkin chai tea from david’s tea. I put it away in hiding once the Christmas season hit. Can’t wait!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 9, 2011

Did you say Pumpkin Chai tea??? Going to scour Davids tea online now!!!

Reply

Tara August 9, 2011

Yes that’s right! I am pretty sure it was part of their fall seasonal line last year, so they may not have it in stock year round… but I am positive they’ll bring it back this fall since it was so popular last year. It is delicious!! I just opened my can and took a smell… mmmm! Have you tried any of their other teas? I have about a dozen of them, all amazing in their own way :)

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 9, 2011
