“Sunday’s not my day of rest.”

I really wish I wouldn’t procrastinate so much. I was super-lazy yesterday (well, up until it was time to make dinner and dessert), and while I was sitting on my bum zoning out in front of the TV, I could’ve also been sorting laundry or popped a load into the washer. But I’m also considering the fact that I don’t have to worry too much about work clothes, since I only need 2 days’ worth…And then I remember there are 2 other people in the house who need clean clothes too (and I’m not saying that Jay can’t do laundry–He’s perfectly capable of it. It’s just easier to do it all at once).

The bambino got me up around 6:30 to go to the bathroom, and while I tried going back to sleep, I knew it wasn’t going to happen. I got out of bed at 7, made some coffee, and unloaded the dishwasher. I also got started on these:

Peanut Butter Granola Mini Bars, from Taste of Home. They’re not exactly mini, I know–I was looking for a peanut butter granola bar recipe, and figured I could make these, and cut them larger.

I also left out the honey and used maple syrup instead (I can’t stand honey). They’re a little crumbly, but so is every other homemade granola bar I’ve made. I figure they’ll harden if I refrigerate them, so I’m not worried. I’ve been buying Clif Crunchy Granola bars, which I like, but they’re $3/a box. So, if I can save myself the money, I might as well. Especially when I’m spending money on stuff like this:

I think I might have a hoarding problem. Especially when it comes to butter. I also picked up this:

I have heard that Danish butter is apparently the be-all and end-all of butter, so I thought I’d give this a try. At $4.25/8 oz., I don’t think I’ll be buying it all that often, but I’ll have to make some cookies or something and test it out.

I was going to save the leftover chicken and use it for the next 2 days as some form of lunch, but then I had another idea for it:

Buffalo chicken pitas. Somewhat like my favorite sandwich at George’s Pizza, but with buffalo chicken instead of beef.

The only complaint I had about them is that I should’ve heated the chicken up before popping the pitas under the broiler. Other than that, they were good. I’m trying to figure out how I can take one with me tomorrow for lunch!

I should’ve waited awhile longer, but I had more bread pudding and ice cream after I cleaned up the kitchen. I’m stuffed to the gills now, but thank the gods for flannel pants with elastic waistbands!

Sharing is caring!

    • I can’t resist a good sale–Out here our butter is normally $3.50/lb. $1.99 seems like a true bargain! And I’ll be doing even more baking in the near future–Once the weather gets even colder. I like eating crackers that way too! I thought my family was the only one that did that, but my sister & I used to go through a sleeve of saltines at a time when we were kids.

      • I’m also a saltine and butter kinda gal!
        PLEASE don’t waste that lovely Lurpak butter in a recipe. It’s too awesome to eat any other way than as a spread. You want to savor every flavor molecule!
