GOOD MORNING BLOG FRIENDS! Hope you had a fairly good weekend. Our big event here was seeing the Avengers. The characters were great. But am I the only person that didn't like that city tore up like like? Reminded me of 9-11. It was good though and my family loved it.
Okay yes yet another (high speed) barn picture - from South Carolina. I am going to have to start looking for some more here. Now I know the attachment is called a pole barn. And this kind of looks like a house to me, but it was a barn.
What is this you ask? My grandson made this for me last night. It is a waffle with whipped cream for the hair, two cherries for the eyes, and a chocolate mouth. (And then he brings me - sugar free syrup.
The next picture is the boys 'resting'. The story behind it is kind of funny. Well Rick is supposed to sit and rest. And Disco is used to resting with him - and lays where the grandson is sitting. Well grandson decided to sit with grandpa and help him rest - playing with the X-box (which I hate.) Anyhow then Disco had to be up there - but he kept looking at grandpa and crying for his spot!
I used (to feed 1 1/2 kids and 2 adults):
3 crispy and slightly tart apples (we ♥ honeycrisp! yum…)
1 tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
For these, I sliced up some apples thin enough so it would be easy to eat the slice in one or two bites.
I also lightly spritzed the apples with lemon juice to keep them from browning too fast.
Then I melted some peanut butter–until it was super runny–and drizzled it all over the apples.
Next, I topped the apples and peanut butter with unsweetened flaked coconut, sliced almonds, a few pecans and, of course, chocolate chips.
And finally, I drizzled a little more peanut butter onto the plate. Ya know, for good measure.
Couldn’t get much easier! Be sure to eat these with your hands, just like real nachos.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
