My Monday is going pretty well – busy at work, but good.
I drank a few cups of tea this morning to keep myself warm before opening up these new treats I found at the Amish market this weekend.
They’re like a teeny tiny Larabar! The texture is a bit softer since there aren’t any nuts in the date mixture, but it tasted very similar.
By the time lunchtime rolled around, I was cold again! All I could think about was a hot lunch.
I found one of those boxed Imagine soups, the butternut squash, so I heated up 1.5 cups of the soup.
I love the texture, but it was a bit sweeter than I wanted so I added a few things:
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- smoked paprika
- chile garlic sea salt
Sweet base with a little heat.
I also made a little hummus tasting plate, thanks to our trip to Costco yesterday.
Nick and I can go through a normal hummus container while watching one football game, so I knew we needed a good amount. Plus, this is only $6 and it’s 3 times the size of the containers I can get here.
Have you ever seen a hummus container the size of your head?
I have now! and I know our favorite SnackFace did this weekend, too
I scooped out some of the hummus to go with my multigrain Food Should Taste Good chips and some celery.
I don’t know how long this container will last
