The rest of the day following my 5k this morning has been spent watching “Couples Retreat”, eating, relaxing, napping, cooking and eating some more. It’s been a great day.
The movie was cute. Not one that I would probably watch over and over but it did make us laugh really hard a few times. I ended up eating my apple that I picked up after the 5k shortly after I ate half the bagel and banana from earlier.
I was starving again in no time and the hubs heated up some pizza he bought the other day. I just ate two slices of cheese.
After the movie I ended up climbing into bed to watch some Oprah’s I had DVR’ed and ended up cat napping for an hour or so. The hubs ended up running to Starbuck’s to get some reading accomplished and I just lounged around and vegged.
Right before he got home I got a burst of energy and knew it was a good time for me to get to making the homemade peanut butter granola bars that I had bought all the ingredients for yesterday.
All the ingredients.
The dry ingredients mixed in a bowl.
The wet ingredients after being microwaved for about 30 seconds.
I added the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and started mixing together. It stayed a little clumpy so the hubs suggested I mix with my hands.
It worked perfectly. I’ll mix with my hands each time from now on!
I placed it into a pan, flattened it out and stuck it in the fridge so it all could bind better.
I have a feeling I’m going to be addicted to these! And they are super easy to make. After Lent I’m going to have to add some chocolate chips I think. ;-)
Go over to Anne’s page for the recipe.
It was then time for dinner and I was quite hungry after mixing all these great ingredients together.
On the menu: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and wheat crackers for a light side.
I thought it was delicious. The hubs prefers original hummus.
Main Course: Flank steak on top of organic spring mix salad with feta cheese, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, shredded carrots and balsamic vinaigrette.
I decided that after dinner I was craving some fruit. I started out with a clementine and decided it wouldn’t be enough to satisfy me so I added some red grapes. Just what I needed.
It’s been a great day and I look forward to spending time with the hubs tonight while he’s taking a break from studying for a few hours. I can’t believe tomorrow is Sunday! My last day of my 3 day weekend! Boo.
Hope you all have enjoyed your Saturday! See you all tomorrow!!
What’s your favorite flavor of hummus?
