I had originally planned to go to the beach at Callaway Gardens today, but my friend couldn't join us so I decided to stay in, do some laundry, clean the house and have an impromptu Once-A-Month-Cooking day.
Here's what we ended up with today:
No Bake Granola Bars - I had some dried cherries and cherry flavored dried cranberries, so I added both kinds to the mix along with chopped natural almonds. Then after the granola bars cooled for a minute, I sprinkled the top with a few chocolate chips.
Banana Oat Muffins - I doubled the recipe and made a dozen with a few chocolate chips on top for the kids. They love it this way! The other dozen are plain, just for me :)
Pizza Muffins - I added some fresh basil from our garden. I wish I had turkey pepperoni, but only had regular pepperoni. They are still only 120 calories per muffins, which is still pretty good.
I found some canned yams on clearance at ALDI the other day, so I've been perusing recipes to use them. I found this one for sweet potato and bean burritos and this one for sweet potato pancakes. They had pretty good ratings so I'll give them a try later this week. I also want to try some squash frittatas. I'm supposed to go over to my cousin's house this week to learn how to pickle some cucumbers, and she said she has a pile of squash. I can't wait to try out a new take on my favorite Summer Squash and Zucchini Quiche recipe.
My Momma came over so I could highlight her hair. It turned out really pretty! I should've taken a picture of it. Maybe next time! Anyway, I wanted to get more done in the kitchen, but it was fun doing her hair. Hope y'all are having a great Monday!
