Prepare yourself for what I’m about to say… I’m glad I still have a full work day ahead of me!! I have so much stuff to do, coupled with losing Monday’s work day, that I’m actually glad I have 8 hours to get some much needed stuff done at work! Do you ever feel like that??
Maybe you’re wondering what the temperature is down at Casa de Iowa Girl Eats…whabam!
That’s 76 degrees, friends! Literally 30 seconds after I took this it jumped to 77 degrees…poor Ben, he absolutely HATES being hot more than anything, but do you understand how expensive air conditioning is?! Plus it’s not even June – I can’t bear the thought of turning on the AC when I don’t even feel like it’s officialy “summer” yet!
So this morning on my walk, I was telling my mom that I was thinking about having something other than oatmeal for breakfast (I know, fascinating stuff right?) and she said – “Oh! Won’t your readers be disappointed though?!” Hahaha she’s great. I told her I didn’t think so, but then I got to thinking about oatmeal, how delicious it was, etc. and before I knew it – I was making Banana Walnut CLIF Bar Oatmeal for breakfast!
My opinion on the Banana Walnut flavor -very sweet. Very, very sweet – but I did appreciate the giant chunks of walnut throughout the bar. I really like that about CLIF bars actually – you’re not eating some mushy “bar” – these babies have substance!
Final verdict: the bar was decent, but I think right now my heart still belongs to the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut flavor. That bar is decadent!
For lunch I used the other half of my banana and a flat out wrap to make a Barney Butter, Banana & Fig Rollup. Oh yes, oh yes…what a combo!!
Chunky Barney Butter, you are many, many things – but a good spreader – you are not! That was tough…worth it though 😉
Look at this!!!
Sweet, chewy, creamy, crunchy – perfecto 🙂
I also packed a side of carrots and watermelon…mmm…
Well everybody, I’m off to start my productive day 🙂 Is everyone working/schooling today? Or did you take Friday off for a four day weekend?! 8)
