March Rain Brings….

Some BORED animals!

2012March 006

It’s been raining since Tuesday.  I barely moved for Tuesday and Wednesday. Our poor dogs are so bored! They just lay around and stare at me.

We did get a break for a couple of hours yesterday.  The sun came out and it was beautiful. They only came in when it started to rain again.  At which time, they both had to go strait to the bath tub.

The cat just walks around crying to get outside. I finally let him out and then 5 seconds later he realizes he is getting rained on and cries to get back in, where he promptly walks to another door and cries to get out again.

Yesterday was full of getting our house back to normal.  Lots of laundry and cleaning.

I also made Godwin bars so we could have something healthy to eat beside candy and chips!

I made a couple of changes from the original recipe:

  • I didn’t have any cereal, so I double the amount of oats.
  • I didn’t have any almond milk, so I used a couple Tablespoons of water.
  • I didn’t have any lemon.
  • I didn’t have any coconut. (I never add coconut.)
  • For the dried fruit, I did a cup of blueberries, cup of cranberries and a cup of cherries!
  • I didn’t have any figs, so I used 10 dates.
  • I didn’t have any agave nectar, so I used honey.

These are so easy to make if you have large food processor.  I just dump all the dry ingredients in and process.

Then all the not so dry ingredients on top of that and process again! Done!

I use a scoop to place them on a cookie sheet.

Then I spray a spatula with Pam, flatten them out and bake at 325 for about 15 minutes or until they start turning brown.

When you follow the above link for the recipe, it shows them in bar form.  I use a mini loaf pan when I make them like that but yesterday I felt like making them in cookie form.

They are so good!

After not eating so great for two days, all I felt like yesterday was salads (and WATER)!

We ended the night with some TV: 30 Rock and Frozen Planet.  Have any of you watched Frozen Planet?  It is so neat!  I am in awe of our planet!

  2. Those cookie/bars look really good!! And super easy which is a plus in my book. I might have to try them.

    1. Hi Julie! Yes, super easy because of the food processor. I love that thing!
