The Weather Outside is Frightful: Edited

.. but it's not snowing!! Nope, we've been stuck with freezing rain. The worst possible weather. I was freezing after walking home from school in the rain, but it was nothing a good cup of chai couldn't solve!

Attune bar review- I liked this a lot! Dark chocolate is one of my most favoritey favorite foods, so I don't go for crappy dark chocolate. It's very rich and creamy, and it's got a real depth of flavor due to the 63% cacoa content. Plus it has fabulous nutrition and probiotics! Highly recommended.

Banana Manna Weil bar- Super yummy as well! They banana flavor is very subtle, not fake tasting like other bars. There was quite a strong date taste though, so if you don't like them avoid this bar. I prefer "pure" fruit and nut-ish bars to fortified ones, so I'll be buying this again.

I started the day out with an egg, a green apple, and a bowlful of goodness:

1 cup of whole milk yogurt and some Kashi Honey Sunshine. I'm not a cold cereal person, I hate eating it with milk, so I hardly ever buy it. I got this this weekend though, and it is now my new favorite cereal! It's not overly sweet like regular kids cereals, but it's not bland either. And I love the cute pillow shapes! I also had another bowlful of goodness, aka pumpkin oats.

Edit: For dinner, I made Cheddar Apple Bacon Frittata (without the bacon for me!!) from Kath Eats. This was super yummy! I love getting little bites of sweet inside a savory dish. And my sister liked it, which is rare. Ignore the yucky bacon in the picture.


I had it with two pieces of wheat baguette with a little butter and a clementine. For snackerage tonight, so far I've had a caramelized banana with melted dark choco chips. Pure heaven. I always have to eat a lot at night, so there will be more that I'm not posting. It's supposed to snow tomorrow morning, so I'm crossing my fingers for a two hour delay!

Caramelized banana? I can't say I've tried that before. It sounds really tasty.

And thanks for doing the reviews on those bars. Not a date fan, so that was good to know about that bar! :)
