First, I want to tell you about, first is some of the bars I've tried recently. The picture may look familiar because I posted about them a few days ago, when I was having the Perfect Day.
So, the Bumble Bar. I had the Luscious Lemon variety, which was about 210 calories and 6g of protein. Respectable. Unfortunately, I wasn't a big fan. They look really yummy, you can see all the seeds and whatnot, but I really wasn't a fan of all the sesame seeds. I've heard that some of the other varieties are better, but I probably wouldn't buy this again.
Second, the Orange Jocolat bar. I thought this was heinous. I know that is pretty strong, but I was super disappointed because I love the regular Jocolat bar. It tasted like alcohol to me, and not in a god way. That's really the only way I can describe it. I thought maybe it was a bad one, but unfortunately I had bought two. The second one was just as bad. It almost tasted to me like there was vodka in it or something. I don't know if this sounds silly, maybe someone can chime in and tell me whether or not I am crazy.
I spent some time shopping today, for student teaching stuff. I really don't like shopping when I have sort of specific things that I need. Like, work appropriate...blah, not fun. I also went to see Bride Wars, which I thought would be better. If you saw the preview, you pretty much saw the movie. I was also annoyed by Candace Bergen's commentary. Not recommended, and I like silly girly movies.
We did find this new "treat", I guess you could say, at a stand near the food court. They're called Kim's Magic Pop, and they are delicious. Everyone agreed that they have a taste similar to toasted marshmallows. It is faint, but its there, and it makes them awesome.
Has anyone tried these before? They're only 15 calories apiece, and are apparently a popular Korean snack, although they're made in Jersey.
My dinner was super boring. I had BBQ tofu with roasted asparagus and butternut squash fries. Ready for bland looking picture time?
Gosh, I swear it tastes better than that picture looks.

Okay, last but not least, I set off, yesterday, to put the carob chips that I recently received, to good use. I ate some...of course they're good like that. But I wanted to do something special with them. I made muffins! The first batch, I think I mentioned, were inedible, because I used the gluten free AP flour. I can't stand it. I tried again today and for now, they're good. I can think of some stuff that I should have added though, so I will post the recipe after I try them again.
So for now, I will simply leave you with a picture of my Banana Carob Muffins.
Oh what the heck, I'll give you the current nutrition information too.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I am, of course, being Saturday morning yoga girl tomorrow, then I am staying at my friends house and we are doing some recipe testing.
In case you need something special to start your weekend out on the right foot, I am leaving you with a pictures of my mom's cat. His name is Marco (his brother's name is Polo, I know, sickeningly cute, right?) and he was being extra cute today (those are not my sneakers).
Today's Cooking Song: "Rock N Roll Band" - Boston. Happy long weekend for those of you with MLK day off!!
