This weekend I had the distinct pleasure of sharing a tiny hotel room with three wonderful women. As wonderful as they are and as much as I love them to death, I have to admit I was looking forward to having my own space again.
It’s very refreshing to be back in my apartment. I love my friends and I love spending time with them, but sometimes it just nice to be able to sit in front of the tv in my underwear and not worry about the exploded suitcase that has yet to be touch to the left. Yes, I’m a slob and I love it!
My hunger never completed subsided this afternoon, so I was glad to have to substantial tasty snack ready to be devoured.
Chobani were kind enough to send me some sample of their brand new flavors. Today I decided to try Pineapple.
For the topping I broke up a Nutty Granola Square that Andrea from Pom had traded me for the bake sale. I gave her one of Whit’s Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes I had won and she gave me one of Elisabeth’s Granola Squares.
Is this not the cutest packaging? Elisabeth did a great job beautifying these bars!
Loved the pineapple flavor. Loved the Nutty Granola Bar. Disliked how runny the yogurt was.
I’ve had Chobani before and remembered it being thick and creamy, but this was a little thin and runny. Maybe I got a bad container? I’m willing to give it another shot! 😉
I have a little chobani giveaway in the works, so stay tuned!
As you could gather from above when I got home I had no aspirations to do anything but sit in my underwear in front of the tv. It felt great to just relax for once. My energy is way down my body is craving rest.
Before I stripped down I did find motivation to make a quick run to Publix and throw together a quick meal.
Fresh veggies and herbs was what I needed. I did a spin on Caprese salad and tossed together Cucumber, Avocado, Tomato, Mozzarella, Fresh Basil, EVOO, Balsalmic Vinegar and S&P.
The salad truly it the spot. It was light, refreshing and a pleasure to eat.
On the side I made some Okra Fries that I baked in the oven at 420 for 10 minutes.
With a little ketchup for dipping.
Whit’s Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes thankfully survived the trip home from Boston. Albeit a little smooshed.
I think this one had coconut in it. Yum! THese babies are so rich and moist. I definitely made a wise decision with these!
If you will excuse me, I have some serious couch potatoing to get back to!
Peace and Quiet… I love it!
