Hello friends 🙂
oh how I love good food days. Sunday night before we got back from dinner, we stopped at Safeway so I could pick up my granola for the week. The Bear Naked Banana Nut was on sale (woot 50 cents off……), so I bought two bags, and I decided to try a new flavor (Vanilla Almond Crunch):
I’m not sure how I feel about this one… I had it in my peach Chobani and it did not blow my mind. I am going to try it in my strawberry one today and see how that works out for me. I do like the way it tastes plain, so that is a plus. They are just so expensive I am not sure how many more of them I want to try….
Also on Sunday was my coworker’s birthday, and yesterday at work his girlfriend sent him an Edible Arrangement.
It was a Chocolate covered granny smith apple with cinnamon business on top.
The person that thought of these edible arrangements is a genius. Who needs flowers anymore, when you can send food to your friends and family as gifts! I would really love to try one of their arrangements with the chocolate covered strawberries! I took one home to Erik and the first bite he took he literally said,” O.M.G. these are amazing.” I mean come on which apple would you choose:
If you must know, I ate both, haha. But the chocolate covered one was obviously better. This really got me in the mood for Caramel apples! Last year when I had to go to Washington State for work, I went to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and bought two apples, one for me and one for Erik. I got the apple pie caramel apple for Erik (OMG SO GOOD), and I bought the peanut caramel apple for myself. I wish we had a store near us, I would go and snag some up right now, I would really like to try the cheesecake caramel apple this time! I guess I will just have to wait until we go apple picking to get a caramel apple.
After work, I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things for Monday night football chili
I did not use a recipe this time, just threw in a few things ( 1 lb ground beef, red bell pepper, onion, jalapeno, black beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce) and tons of random spices, and it turned out even better than my usual chili if you can believe it! It might have also been that I served it over cornbread instead of white rice, but oh man it was good.
I took the easy route this time when I made the cornbread and used a Jiffy box mix, but I think when I have more time I will make the cornbread from scratch:
Sorry for the messy picture, I took this after I had mixed in my cornbread. Thank goodness for the good food day, because the Redskins really blew the football game last night. Ella was not impressed:
I hope everyone has a great day!
Caramel apples? yay or nay?
