Well Happy Friday to you all! Before we get to the subject of this post, I just have to go ahead and toot my own horn for a second. Remember last night how I said I really wasn’t sure whether or not I’d find the motivation to head down to the treadmill after dinner?
Well…I did it!
I told Jay that once 7pm rolled around, he had to make sure that I stayed committed to my plan, but I managed to get down there all on my own. I spent the 40 minutes doing a steady walk while reading through my book (only 2-3 more chapters left!) and I felt great for doing so…HOWEVER…
Almost immediately after I was finished, I was struck with a case of tight chestness (from my asthma), wicked heartburn (from dinner?), and a super stuffy nose. And then, sure as shit, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I am now sick. Full out stuffy/runny nose, sore throat, congested face, and all the like. I crawled into bed just after 9pm, hoping that I’d feel better this morning, but so far it’s not lookin’ good. Blech…I just hate being sick. Especially when I can’t really take much for it!
But hey, ya know what? I’m gonna try not to think about it and keep pushing through the day. Things could always be worse, right? Right. So now that I finished my whining, let’s go ahead with something much more fun. How about, to help us all get through our Friday a little easier, I go ahead and offer a fun little giveaway this morning? Yeah? Okay, awesome.
I recently became the lucky recipient of a wonderful goodie box filled with some of my favorite snack crispbreads, Wasa.
Included in the goodie box was multi grain, light rye,
and, my favorite, the crisp ‘n light Wasa crispbreads.
Now if you’ve been reading STSL for any amount of time, then you probably already know that I’ve been a fan of these crispbreads for quite some time (as has my girl, Alyssa)…
They’re amazing for sampler platters.
Counter-clockwise, starting to top left:
- Cucumber hummus, and basil
- The Laughing Cow and fruit salsa
- Fresh mozzarella, tomato slices, and basil
- Peanut butter, nectarine slices, and chia seeds
They’re delicious when topped with chocolate PB2.
Or packed up as a snack with a wedge of The Laughing Cow cheese.
Again, going with the same pattern, they continue to be delicious with The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese and sliced strawberries (perfect savory and sweet combo).
And quite possibly one of my favorite snacks is a Wasa cracker topped with raspberry jam, eggs, and cheese.
That is a seriously epic snack right there. No joke.
So today, Wasa is offering to give away some Wasa crackers AND a $25.00 Visa gift card to a lucky STSL reader!
To Enter: Leave a comment on this post sharing some of your favorite (or would be favorite, if you’ve never tried them) recipe ideas to create with Wasa crackers.
I’ll choose a random winner on Monday, January 7th. Good Luck!
And if you think of it, send some good vibes my way to help me shake this cold sooner than later. ;) xoxo
