Hey everyone! Gosh- these posts are harder to complete these days, and I’m not even employed at the moment! On the other hand, I work 24/7 keeping another human alive, so perhaps I should argue that I’m a workaholic.
First, let me tell about our Labor Day weekend. We decided to take our first adventure out of town with Evie. I spent ALL day Thursday and ALL morning Friday packing/preparing to leave. We packed our car to the limits- the stroller and pack n’play alone took up the whole trunk of my car, and we still had luggage, food, photo equipment, and 3 people to go (and wine..don’t forget the wine!)
We decided to head up to the Smoky Mountains of NC, so fortunately, we didn’t have too long of a drive. We rented a beautiful house with my parents and spent the next few days taking in the views, enjoying the sounds of nature, and breathing in as much of the cool mountain air as possible. So nice to get out of the city every once in a while, and my parents even babysat for us so we could go out for a hike and act like a normal married couple as opposed to co-workers for 1 hour. Evie was a champ, and she even slept 8 hours in a row Fri and Sat, and 7 hours Sun. I did panic and get up at her normal feeding time to discover her happily dreaming in her bed. So even that was a nice break for me! (Don’t worry- she remembered her 2am feeding time the second we got home.)
We also got to spend part of the weekend with friends, having an amazing meal on Saturday (which I am currently in the process of tracking down the recipes for) and heading out on the boat before leaving Monday. Here are a few pics from the weekend:
Now, I have to admit. I didn’t make these frozen yogurt bars today, or even this weekend. I made them in early July before Evie showed up and never had a chance to share them with you. Ideally, they would be a summer treat, but for those of you who like anything cold any time (ice cream anyone?) then perhaps you’ll be able to fool yourself for at least one dessert and have yourself one of these instead.
I discovered them here through pinterest, and unlike many of the things I try from pinterest, they actually came out exactly as expected! And they are super easy, so give them a whirl. Great snack for you, and great for kiddos who can eat solids as well (Evie hasn’t tried them yet..).
Frozen Yogurt Bars:
2 containers greek yogurt (prob should avoid Chobani at the moment!) – I used strawberry
1 1/2 cups chopped fruit (I used strawberries, blueberries and bananas)
3/4 cup granola (I used some homemade granola from a friend!)
Mix them all together and spread the mixture out on foil. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. When you remove it from the freezer, the aluminum foil peels right off (I was doubtful) and then you can cut it up into cute little squares. Keep them in the freezer until snack time, and keep some napkins handy, because if you don’t eat them fast enough, they will start to melt in your hand
