Happy Thursday! The sun was shining bright this morning and couldn’t have put me in a better mood.
The warmer weather has been putting me in a lighter foods mood. I’m upping my salad intake and loving it. A simple spring time salad of lettuce, sliced button mushrooms, toasted walnuts, dried cranberries, and a sprinkle of parm alongside a vinaigrette that I came across on Ryan’s Foodbuzz dinner menu.
I also baked the other day. I was lucky enough to receive some Kodiak Cakes products to review and was ecstatic to dive into the boxes and try them out. I decided to make the oatmeal dark chocolate cookies. The only added ingredients needed to turn it into a delicious dough was butter and an egg. There was also a tip saying you could substitute 1/4 c. applesauce for half of the butter so I’d figure i’d try that out and see how they turned out.
They turned out to be perfectly chewy and had the right amount of sweetness to them. Of course I loved that they were absolutely filled with dark chocolate morsels and melted in my mouth. Next up! Brownie mix and pancake mix 🙂
A few weeks ago I walked into a local hair salon to buy some hair products. As I was checking out I noticed a jar with tickets next to the cash register. They were doing a raffle for complimentary haircuts, so I filled out tickets for my mom, my sister, and I and went on my way. Well I got a call that my mom and I had won so tonight we’re going in for our complimentary haircuts and I can’t wait! I’m in desperate need for a cut, so this came at a perfect time, plus it will be so fun to have a mom and daughter night. After we get out hair done we’re going to get dinner at a local Thai restaurant that is absolutely amazing. I’ve gotten takeout from Thai Arroy before and it’s been delicious so I can’t wait to have her try it out as well.
