Okay, i know i shouldn't but...i need energy. We bought four boxes of those protein-energy bars at the store. My honey (not your health-nut eater) kept going to the cupboard for an energy bar -- two or three times a day!
"May i try one of those?" i asked. I bit into wonderful chocolate and peanut butter! "How much sugar do these contain?"
He shrugged, "I don't know, but they're energy bars. It says right here on the package. A-n-d, they have FIBER!" he gave a single nod and smiled back all toothy-like.
After reading the ingredients, i laughed, "They're nothing but candy bars....or glorified cookies!" i had a light bulb moment: Cookies are a great source of energy, at least my oatmeal raisin cookies. They have protein and fiber.
I know I shouldn't but.....i ate a
two three four. Know what? I was tired, but now i'm good!
Changing the subject on purpose....What do you think about incorporating a piece of furniture like this hutch into our painted Barn House kitchen? Quaker old fashioned disappearing oatmeal raisin cookies and milk below.
