Springing Forward

by Jenny on March 13, 2011

Good morning and Happy Spring Forward Day!  I won’t lie, I hate losing an hour of sleep but I’ll deal if it means Spring is around the corner.  Yayyyy warm weather!

Waking up at technically what my body thought was 4:30 a.m. was no fun this morning but once I got breakfast and some coffee in me I was ready for another day of weekend work

After dinner last night I decided to make some of Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Banana Butter.  Since I’m apparently on quite the Dark Chocolate Dreams kick, I actually ended up making Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter.  I cut up a medium sized banana (about 80 grams worth of banana) and threw it in the Magic Bullet with 4 tbsp. of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.  I let the bullet go to work and ended up with this dream of a spread…

I cut up an apple to use as a dipper and my dessert was set!

Apple sticks for dipping

Seeing that my jar of chocolate peanut butter looked like this after…

ANOTHER empty pb jar

…you can probably guess what was for breakfast today.  If you said Oats in a Jar, you are correct!  I added oatmeal prepared with skim milk and a tsp. of agave nectar into the near empty jar this morning.

Get in that jar!

And then I topped it with a tbsp. of raspberry jelly.  Chocolate Covered Raspberry Oats in a Jar anyone?!

Before running out the door to get to work, I grabbed some grapes to snack on later this morning…

Morning Snack!

…and more leftover Turkey Mini Meatloaves and Garlic Mashed Potatoes for lunch.

Leftover meatloaf is the bomb!

I’m heading out to my parents’ house tonight after work to get in some family time…can’t wait!  Hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday!!!

You’ve got that right! Your recipes are the best…I haven’t found one chocolate/peanut butter/ banana something on your page that I didn’t love! :) Thanks for them!!

Can I just tell you how silly I feel…I was going through life the last the last week thinking it was going to be light out earlier after the time change…turns out it’s the opposite. I’m pretty sure I left a comment on one of your posts with this incorrect info…not to worry, I figured it out!

haha well at least it wasn’t totally off the wall since it will be light out later now!
