It’s Monday, and it’s raining again. I’m not sure why, but it seems as though every Monday has been rainy and dreary lately.
First things first, over the weekend, THIS happened! I have been dying to put Ella’s hair in pigtails for the last three months, and well… There you have it. Basically the cutest thing you ever did see!
Mike spent much of the morning Saturday working outside, which obviously left me enough time to play with Ella’s hair, but also time to make these homemade cashew cookie “larabar” bites.
They’re super easy to make, and much less expensive than the whole bars you buy at the store. Best part, they’re healthy, there’s only 3 ingredients, and there is zero cooking involved!
The recipe goes a little something like this…
Cashew Cookie Dough Bites (homemade larabars)
20 medjool dates, pitted
1 cup raw cashews
Pinch of salt, to taste
Purée dates in a food processor or blender until they come together (about 30 seconds). Add in cashews and salt and purée until all ingredients are combined. Pour ingrients onto a surface (cutting board/plate) and work together with hand to form a large ball. Break off pieces about the size of a walnut and roll into smaller balls. You should get about 16 “bites”.
I like to store mine in a ziploc bag/Tupperware container in the refrigerator.
Yesterday we made our way to the outlets to do some shopping and then stopped to visit friends of ours who recently purchased their first house.
They had an absolutely enormous LoveSac and the movie Rio, so Max was pretty much in heaven. He had such a blast that he passed out on our couch when we got home, which rarely ever happens.
Which brings us to today… We’re easing ourselves into this week gently.
Hope you all have a fabulous week!
