lunch suggestion and peanut butter delight

It was a busy weekend with my mom in town, so I have a brief, random post before work this morning.

First, a must-try sack lunch idea: almond butter and apple sandwich! It's a favorite! Almond butter -- similar to peanut butter, just made with almonds -- is a creamy, rich flavor offering your sandwich some spice! And an apple (sans the skin) offers a fun, crispy interior. I can't imagine this isn't a complete jackpot among the younger generations, but I love it, too! 

 This weekend I made a new Southaven Farms recipe -- Peanut Butter Surprise Muffins! They are delicious!! For 145 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 5 grams of fiber, and 21 grams of can't go wrong! Yumm!

And football had a good weekend for me this week! Illinois and Michigan won and Ohio State lost. Between OSU and USC it was really the lesser of two evils for me. I was actually going "Big 10" but can't say I was sad when they lost! : )  Lily also enjoyed our time this moderation, of course.

Have a great week! 


  1. I will ignore that last paragraph, and just say those muffins sound and look AMAZING. And, I can't believe your dog likes beer!! That's too funny, I would think dogs would hate carbonation, I guess I'm wrong, he's slurping it right up!
