the name of the game is efficiency this morning.
i’ve got about 3 hours to blog, run, pack clothes and snacks, and shower. brad and i are setting out on a road trip today & we didn’t really pack or prepare anything yet.
this is so so so against my nature.
anyway, despite my limited time frame for blogging this morning, i had to do a seven things sunday post.
1. i didn’t do anything for st. patty’s day yesterday.
i didn’t even wear green.
loser-face right here…
2. i have no idea how i managed to skip over this dip last week, but i’m still thinking about it a week later, so you get to see it today!
liz is the one who told me to try this costco dip. sadly, she told me last night that her costco in cali doesn’t have it anymore! i need to go back to ours asap and grab a couple more containers if it’s still there!
3. banana fro-yo is back!
if you’ve never tried banana frozen yogurt, you’re missing out!
all you do is freeze some bananas into chunks, put them in your food processor and process until they reach a frozen yogurt consistency.
then top with deliciousness of your choice. i picked milk chocolate & peanut butter chips.
p.s. the reason we made this is because brad refused to give in to my custard craving – who is that man and what did he do with my husband?!?
4. i bottled a round of kombucha yesterday afternoon!
during the secondary fermentation, i keep my kombucha in a box in our laundry closet with paper towel pieces over each bottle.
yesterday i removed the paper towel, put on the caps, and put them in the fridge.
now i’ve got a little army of kombuchas to last me the next couple of weeks!
5. i learned something new on my most recent vitacost order…
apparently vitacost has a page where they offer samples of some of their products. with every order, you’re able to choose two free samples to try!
i have no idea how it took me so long to discover this, but of course i fully intend to take advantage of it from now on.
one of my first samples was this protein powder.
it was strawberry flavored, which i was a little nervous about, but it was absolutely delicious!
apparently i like sweet protein powder…
6. my march foodie penpal package arrived yesterday.
i’ll tell you all about it at the end of the month, but i had to share just one thing.
i’ve been avoiding buying this or the new trader joe’s cookie spread for fear of becoming addicted, but now it might happen anyway.
brad and i busted this open as soon as it arrived yesterday and it’s been calling me from the pantry ever since!
i think i’ll leave this at home during our road trip. i’m not sure it’d survive!
7. my dehydrator has been working overtime the past couple of days!
i made zucchini chips, sweet potato chips, juice pulp crackers, and strawberry fruit leathers!
all perfect road trip snacks.
(recipes coming at-ya this week!).
see you tomorrow from our final destination!
