Nothing

by Meghann on February 11, 2009

Tonight has been great. I am completely free, casually doing stuff around the apartment that needs to be done while catching up on all the great stuff on the DVR. Right now I am watching last week’s Grey’s Anatomy.

I was very relieved today when I discovered my Peanut Butter Kashi Granola bars were not part of the batch that are being recalled. They have an expiration date of October 2009 and all the ones being recalled have a best by date before September 2009.

So I happily chowed down on the bar mid afternoon.

Tonight I took my time with dinner and went with a recipe I saw on my cousin Andrea’s Blog: Lentil Chili.

I followed her recipe except I added Carrots, Tomato and lots of Chili Powder to the mix.

I also topped the chili with raw onion and goat cheese. Yum!

With the chili I had a left over Oat Biscuit that has been in the freezer and was still very good.

After dinner I got enjoy a reader sent treat.

Amanda baked the Brownie Toffee Hearts for the blogging bake sale and was so sweet to send me a batch of her goodies in the process. Isn’t her label sticker cute? Amanda, are you a professional baker?!?

I had one of the Kit Kat Blondies for dessert.

I was going to break it in half and just have half but when I went to put it on my plate I just didn’t have the heart to break it apart. I enjoyed every bite! SOO GOOD!!!! Thank you Amanda!!

Now I have more relaxing to do! Good night everyone!

Don’t forget tomorrow morning I’m announcing the winner of the Gracie’s Gear Contest. There’s still time to comment so get them in!

Those are the cutest labels and that kit kat blondie looks phenomenal!

Did you like Grey’s last week (and are you into Private Practice)? I was ticked that it really wasn’t a crossover…and at the Grey’s ending (haha I don’t want to say it in case you’re still watching it/ haven’t seen the end yet). :(.

Glad you liked the chili! I heated my leftovers tonight up with spinach…very tasty. I think I’ll add some into the next batch I make.

Congrats on your awesome bake sale success!!! You know you can count on me for another in March…that’s what family is for! ๐Ÿ™‚

22 Missy (MISSY MAINTAINS) February 11, 2009 at 10:40 pm

24 Heather Eats Almond Butter February 11, 2009 at 11:54 pm

I’m so glad you’re getting in some R&R Meghann as I know you’ve been super busy with all the bake sale stuff. I’m also glad you ate the entire blondie. ๐Ÿ™‚

25 Mica February 12, 2009 at 12:01 am

Man, I have got to try this chili with some tasty oat biscuits because it is the COOL thing to do!

26 eatingbender February 12, 2009 at 12:10 am

I’m glad you got to relax tonight, Meghann! All your eats look amazing and I’d say that Amanda is definitely a professional baker…or should be! Love the label!

27 alessa February 12, 2009 at 12:11 am

Lentil chili sounds SO good! My mom makes awesome chicken chili, and this post totally reminded me of that. Anyways, enjoy your night. Crossing my fingers I win that sports bra!!

28 carolinebee February 12, 2009 at 1:58 am

Yes chill time!! I’m so glad u can enjoy some bake sale goods, i mean for all your work, right!? Ha and can I just say- when you wrote “to tide me over” in your other post, I just got so happy, it really bugs me when people write “Tie me over”, i dont know why!!

29 seeleelive February 12, 2009 at 8:00 am

30 Kristie February 12, 2009 at 8:00 am

Mmm delicious looking kit kat blondie!
Casual rest/catch up nights are my favourite. I plan on having a week full of them next week during my spring break. I cannot WAIT. ๐Ÿ™‚

31 raspberryrunner February 12, 2009 at 8:03 am

32 brandi February 12, 2009 at 9:20 am

What a cute package!

I wouldn’t have the heart to break that brownie in half either ๐Ÿ™‚

33 Elina February 12, 2009 at 9:40 am

So sad I missed the giveaway ๐Ÿ™
Those blondies looks divine. They do look professional! ๐Ÿ˜€
Glad you enjoyed your alone time. Those are definitely much needed once in a while ๐Ÿ™‚

I FREAKED about the TLC recall because I loaded every. single. OOT box (96 of them) with one… But then I realized I didn’t have any PB flavored ones hahahaha! (sigh of relief).

can’t wait for grey’s tonight! I hope my plane is not delayed so I can enjoy it in philly!

35 The Almost City Girl February 12, 2009 at 1:38 pm

Heres a dumb question for you or anyone reading! How do you pack up baked goods like that to mail? I wanted to mail some cookies to my mom but am afraid that by the time they get there it will just be crumbs. Those blondies look totally intact!

36 Amanda February 13, 2009 at 9:00 am

It’s Amanda, aka kit kat blondie baker…I am not a professional baker yet, but I am thinking about it…I take requests, so email Meghann for my email if you want to place an order! (that is, if Meghann doesn’t mind… :))
