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:

Chocolate Peanut Butter macaroons!

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

NEW this week…

Presenting Crunchy Peanut Butter Maple Macaroons

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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. :)

Ange, I just realized I forgot my dark chocolate chip banana bread in the cooler today :( I’m sooo bummed, especially after seeing these photos and realizing what I’m missing out on now!
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!

I love those summer moments. I hate when summer is over!!! That’s why I’m cherishing every sweaty, hot, sunny moment of the season.
