Bars 'n Bubbly

Hello, hello. Whew…okay so posting has been a little … all over the place. I’ve been all over the place so I guess art is imitating life right now. haha I’m taking some time to visit my mom and hang with my brother (who’s sitting next to me write now) before the craziness of summer courses and my job set in.

My eats have just been as random as my life. haha Yesterday, after I dropped off my finished final yesterday, I decided that I neeeeeded to eat, and it was so hot that a cold, cold beverage was calling my name.

I decided on a Coconut Cream Pie Lara Bar and a Banana Bread one, too – and a POM pomegranate peach passion white tea…it was cold, sweet and delicious. Thirst-quenching at its finest.

When I got home last night – more thirst-quenching. This time in the form of bubbly. We toasted to a completed and successful year! We tried Barefoot Wine’s new Rosé Cuvée Champagne. It was pretty darn good. :)

We munched on unpictured salad, sausage and potatoes last night … went to bed very full and very happy.

This morning I was craving my usual PB&J roll up…so after rummaging through the fridge, I found some La Tortilla Factory tortillas and some Peanut Butter and Co’s Cinnamon Raisin. Needless to say…tortilla, pb and a little raspberry jam met a little while later. Delicious.

I hope you all are wonderful!! I’m trying to get myself back into normal posting mode! :) I appreciate you all for putting up for my scattered thoughts and posts. Love.love.love.

Seat Stealin'

Happy Saturday…evening! :) I hope you all are doing wonderfully.

It has been a drizzly, COLD day around here. I am at my mom’s house – which is love.love.lovely – but I am so bundled up right now it is ridiculous! It’s funny how easily our bodies adapt back to warm weather…throughout the winter I would have dubbed 40 degrees as a heat wave! haha Right now…it is downright freezing! :)

My day has been filled with lovely eats…though not the healthiest. It’s more than okay, though. Sometimes, you’ve just got to let go and have some fun with your eats. That’s how today has been for me.

I started my morning with a nice, hot cup of joe. I haven’t had drip coffee in forever – it was delicious. With drip, I usually do half of the mug coffee and the rest milk. Otherwise, I’ll be a jittery mess.

Breakfast was PB&J roll-ups (my mom is awesome and had Mighty Maple on hand as well as some triple berry jam that her friend MADE)…they’re an any time of day food … and I was craving PB ‘like woah’. I used these awesome La Tortilla Factory tortillas that my mom gets. They are so good. I cannot find them in Boston – I know La Tortilla Factory is a pretty available brand so it surprises me…but then again, the Shaw’s I go to in Boston is terribly organized…things are never in the logical places.

Warning: these are not the most beautiful roll-ups …however, they sure were delicious!

I spent most of the morning catching up on blogs, and look what happened when I got up for a second! Someone stole my seat….

Shadow is obviously checking out Angela’s blog and her amazing post about Nut Butter Encrusted Parsnip Fries. Can’t blame her…those suckers look absolutely mouth-watering…and well, I think I will make them soon. haha

I’m not going to lie…I was a total couch potato this afternoon. I hung out with my mom (always a good time) watched some television, read some books and munched on this goodness: blue corn tortilla chips and pineapple salsa. YUM. Pineapple salsa is easily my favorite fruit salsa.

Dinner was a lovely – home-cooked, made by mom with love -meal.

This place near us called Mike’s Red Barn does great meats, take-home precooked meals and salads. It’s located in Salem, NH on 97 for anyone in the area who is interested. They also do great little baked items, like biscotti.

Anyway, so for dinner we had some spicy sausage, some white beans roasted with stone-ground mustard and some roasted asparagus. Yummy, yum, yums. I usually only go for a small serving of the sausage – and don’t eat it very often –  but it’s really delicious. The beans were bombbbb, too.

  • Anyone have any epic Saturday night plans??

I plan on relaxing indoors with a good book or a movie…perhaps with some hot cocoa :) – not super exciting, but it feels amazing.
