    Beautiful and Delicious.

     

     Todays snack for school featured yet again some of our much loved LUNA bars! Todays flava was Vanilla Almond.

     Can you see my little Leaf necklace? Isn’t it adorable! lol

    When Court and I finally made it home from school, there was a HUGE amazing package waiting on the porch for us! Can you say Christmas in September? lol This generous package was from the lovely people over at Artisana.

    Check out the loot. It is seriously a girl’s Nut butter Mekka. OMG 🙂

     The beauties well surely be put to good use.

     We each got to pick a Nut Butter flavor, and here were the picks for our BIG jars. I was dying for the Macadamia butter after seeing it on Gracie’s blog, and Court just had to have her classic coconut Butter.

     Shall we check out the stats?

     So far we’re thinking about using this one as a good German Chocolate Oat combo. Any good ideas?

    Maybe we will have to head over to Chocolate Covered Katie’s. After all, she is the Chocolate and Artisana butter Queen! 

     I really wish Macadamia nuts were not so expensive, because anything with Macadamia Nuts is fabulous. Okay, now I am craving a White chocolate macadamia nut cookie. Oh and I just got a genius Oat Creation idea.

     Lunch consisted of a Turkey and Cheddar melt with an apple drizzled with Macadamia Butter.

     Grilled is Mandatory of course 🙂

     Macadamia Butter Verdict: Fantastic aroma and consistency the moment that you open the jar. Court and I were so tempted, that the first lick was simple straight finger dipping. Oh, and the Apple Macadamia butter combo was perfect 🙂

     After lunch we completed Level 1 of shredding it with weights, and then had some good ol’ homework time, which is never fun! There was Psychology terms, reading the Great Gatsby, and studying for Pre-calc. My brain is officially fried. lol

     With a Pumpkin and sweet tooth craving tonight, Court whipped us up some delish Pumpkin pancakes

    Twas a good night. Tomorrow is a work day from 7-1, then off to art at 6. Have a fun night guys!

      Could you girls please be my personal caterer for a day? You are amazing! That is freaking awesome that artisana sent you that package of nutty love! I just made my own chocolate coconut butter tonight out of coconut oil, Stevia, and cocoa powder. Not to shabby!!

      I can’t wait to find out how the Cacao Bliss and Macadamia butters are…like you, I love macadamia nuts but I don’t love the price. 🙂

      Oh my god, nut butter heaven! The only two I’ve ever tried are almond butter and peanut butter… not fair 😦

      How do you guys make your pumpkin pancakes? I have some pumpkin that I need to use by this weekend and I figured pancakes would be amazing!

      Oats! I should have guessed it would be oats. Those look great!

      Very jealous of your Artisana loot, I’ve always wanted to try that stuff. My grocery store is kind of lame though and doesn’t have it.
