Aren’t these little guys adorable?
Yesterday, I spent a little time putting out some of my Halloween decorations, including these candy corn cuties. I ended up finding them at Kirklands a couple of years ago and they are easily one of my favorite Halloween decorations. I think I can totally relate to the cutie in the middle and definitely the one on the right.
I’m not quite sure what’s up with the appetite today; one minute I’m hungry, the next minute I’m not. I wasn’t in the mood to put together a full lunch, so I’ve been doing a little snacking throughout the afternoon.
Snack #1 – Odwalla bar
I received a small package in the mail a couple of weeks ago from Odwalla, including a few of their latest White Chocolate Macadamia chewy nut bars. I’ve recently sort of fallen in love with the Odwalla bars, and this one is just as tasty. My favorite part is definitely the white chocolate chips…no doubt.
Snack #2 – Apple with Peanut Butter Pumpkin Yogurt Dip
Despite the fact that my apple browned up in about .5 seconds, this was one fantastic snack. At first, I was just going to pair the apple with some PB, but then I decided I wanted a bit more volume. So I grabbed a few ingredients and got a little experimental…and it worked!
It may not be my creamy fruit dip, and I’m sure that others have probably come up with something like this before, but it sure is tasty and I liked it!
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Yogurt Dip for One
- 1/4 cup yogurt (I used Chobani plain nonfat)
- 1/2 tablespoon PB2 (I’m sure that regular PB would work just as well and probably give it an even creamier consistency)
- ~3 tablespoons pumpkin
- Dash each of Truvia (or any sweetener of choice), cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice
Mix it all together and voila! You’ve got yourself a delicious, nutritious, pumpkiny dip for one.
I still had quite a bit left over after my apple was finished, so I scooped up the rest with some TJ’s’ cat cookies. Ummm, amazing!
Time for me to get back to my work…I’ve been pretty productive and don’t want to end up getting sucked into the vortex that is my Google Reader (since it’s definitely not difficult to do). Hope everyone is having a fantastic Monday!
Question for the Afternoon:
What’s your favorite way to eat an apple? Naked? Dipped in PB? In a sandwich? Baked?
