Sammie Bars

This morning I packed one of my homemade bars to eat as a snack when we were finished with our babysitting shift at the gym.  It was delicious and super crunchy.  These things were so easy to make.  I mixed cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and honey.  Then I pressed the mixture into a parchment lined 8 inch pan.  I popped it into a 275 degree oven until it looked golden brown.  I really kept my eye on it because I know how quickly nuts & seeds can burn. I let the whole thing cool completely which allows the honey to harden. I then removed the parchment from the pan and cut into 8 bars.  The combinations are endless with this recipe.  My goal was of course to have a gluten and soy free bar – mission accomplished.

Lunch today was a salad – lettuce, red & yellow pepper, hummus and salsa.  I also had 2 pieces of gluten free bread topped with red pepper and melted Swiss cheese.  There were 2 rice cakes included on the plate which tasted pretty good with salsa, hummus and veggies.

Then I had my second Oikos yogurt.  Today I tried the vanilla flavor.  It was not as yummy as the honey flavor but still an excellent Greek yogurt.  I would really love to buy this brand on a regular basis but at Whole Foods one 5.3 ounce container costs $2.19 which I think is very expensive.  I can buy a 16 ounce container of Greek yogurt at Trader Joe’s for $2.99 and a 32 ounce container of Chobani at Stop & Shop for $5.99.  I will definitely allow a splurge every now and then especially so that I can have the Oikos Honey flavor again – it really was exceptionally divine.

This afternoon I am watching Rocco at my house for my sis.  She dropped him off a little while ago and the dynamic duo have been enjoying some good old buddy time. 

Exciting news – My new camera just arrived.  I have the battery charging so hopefully I can use it tonight.  I must read the owners manual – this guy looks complicated.  We ended up getting this Sony Cyber-Shot which is a totally different camera than the old one.  I really wanted to get something nice for the blog seeing as it is kind of like a job. 

I hope you are having a great day.  By the way, I didn’t eat the dog treats. It was an April Fools joke. Plus they contain wheat : )
