Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
Well last night I never did get anything for supper but I did snack on these:
These are now my new sweet snack. I love Bugles and then to add caramel to them. What a happy treat for me. I also ate way to much of this:
Yep, I can eat this by the spoonfuls. I get this honestly for loving frosting from my mother. In fact, one year for my mother’s birthday I bought her 4 cups of frosting. Not just any frosting but the kind that is used on wedding cakes. What is so sad, is she went through 2 cups of the frosting in less than a week. We both love frosting, the sweeter the better. The reason I made the frosting is because I made these:
These are Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Almond Buttercream Frosting. I got the recipe from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life, mine are as cute as hers but they are absolutely delicious. I got all of that accomplished by 8:30. Then it was time to sit down for one of these with Mr. T.
That is my version of Starbuck’s Carmel Apple Spice. In the mix is apple cider that I heated up and then added a dash (or two) of cinnamon schnapps, carmel syrup and then whip cream with a drizzle of carmel syrup on top. Delicious. What a perfect way to end the night.
So onto St. Patrick’s Day. I got up early and took the pups for our daily walk. They are always so happy when I do this and I feel so much better getting in a 30 minute walk in the morning. Yesterday I told you I finished up this jar:
Which meant I got to make Oats in a Jar. I haven’t ever made this before but I have read many, many other bloggers rave about them. So I thought I would give it a try. So in the jar last night before bed I put:
1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup honey greek yogurt, Dash of Cinnamon and a small handful of raisins.
It doesn’t look to appealing but then I added some strawberries and Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal.
This is actually delicious. I see now why everyone raves about it. What floors me is, as I kid I absolutely hated (make me throw-up) oatmeal. I refused to eat it. I would start gagging at just the smell of it and now I’m eating it all the time. I guess it is true, your tastes buds change as you get older. I also had my coffee.
Yeah me, I figured out how to turn the pictures (still need to clean the mirror).
