I am continuing on with a Wednesday post consisting of not just “what I ate” but more what I LOVE.
As I sad last week, I have a ton of interests besides food and exercise (shocker, right?!) and why not share them in case you are totally missing out on some awesome aspects of life?!
I do, however, have to start with a grocery item that I was lucky enough to find on my doorstep a week ago; Barbara’s Snackimals.
My town is under a rock and does not sell these in any of my immediate supermarkets, which is extremely unfortunate because they are AMAZING.
I have seen some Barbara’s products floating around the blog world (PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE PUFFINS I WILL FIND YOU!) and even a few items at other stores in different locales, but for some unknown reason, none had made their way into my cart.
*tell me you don’t want these like, right now?!
WHAT WAS I WAITING FOR?!
I am always looking for new snacks to incorporate into my meal plan and we all known I crave sweet and crunch, so these little cookies were PERFECT for an after lunch treat.
Who am I kidding? I actually had them after lunch and dinner Tuesday. I spread The Laughing Cow Strawberry Cream Cheese on the Vanilla variety and totally dunked the Chocolate Chip in my Unsweetened Almond Breeze.
Truth be told they don’t really need any enhancements, because they are delectable on their own, but the point is, if you have the opportunity, pick some up! Or go to their website an order a sampler ASAP.
I am dying to try the peanut butter. I already have big plans for those babies smeared with a little Pb&CO. Dark Chocolate Dreams.
*Although Barbara’s was nice enough to send me their product, the opinions expressed above are completely my own. I thought I might have a problem eating the cute little animal figurines, but I got over that pretty quickly…all it takes is a bite!
Snackimals could also be consumed as a bedtime snack while I am enjoying my new favorite show.
Apparently not only is my town totally out of the loop, but so am I because how I had been missing Game of Thrones for so long is beyond me!
As a past history major and lover of pretty much all HBO, Starz, etc. entertainment, it kind of shocked me that I didn’t watch this with my husband last year.
Maybe it was because it was on past my bedtime and I already do have a long list of television programs I enjoy, but either way there is no excuse, GAME OF THRONES IS AWESOME.
We just did a marathon few nights to complete the first season and now I am seriously counting down the days until the premier this Sunday.
Apparently I need to work on my patience, in addition to all my other self-projects.
And just so you don’t think all I do is sit around and watch TV, I totally do love a good book! It may not be as often as it once was, due to lack of concentration (nutrition would help this!) but sometimes there is nothing better than curling up by the fire to enjoy a novel.
Whenever I see Jenna post about what she is reading I tend to check it out. I seem to have similar taste to her favorites because most of her choices have really appealed to me. After the Lost Wife, I thought the perfect follow up would be The Baker’s Daughter.
Historical fiction about World War II is my absolute favorite, so I didn’t think I could go wrong, and just as I expected, I adore this book, as well.
I am not completely finished with it yet, and I don’t like to give away too many details, but if you liked Sarah’s Key I think this would be a good choice for you.
Today I am keeping it short and sweet, but please feel free to add any suggestions you may have for new snacks, or entertainment! Both my belly and mind always welcome new additions 🙂
Here is what I am HOPING I can report on for next week’s WILW 😉
- PB Crave
- The Hunger Games (Friday Date Night!!!)
- FreshaPeel Hummus (Pumpkin Hummus?! Yes, please!!!)
Happy hump day!
