We both got salads with tons of veggies and shrimp. The server gave me an extra shrimp because he liked my salad bar enthusiasm and the fact that I ordered with a smile.
What can I say? Salad bars excite me.
That extra shrimp must have weighed 5 pounds because my total at checkout was $16!
To be fair, the total did include a granola bar that I’ve been dying to try.
After some fun girl talk, I headed on home and made mini cashew cookie Larabars.
These little buggers are so simple to make and only involve two ingredients: dates and cashews.
I used 16 ounces of dates and 8 ounces of cashews. The cashews were chopped in a food processor until crumbly. The pitted dates were put in the microwave for 15 seconds and then mashed with a potato masher. The cashews were then added to the dates and mixed together with my hands. It got very sticky!
Once the dates and nuts were combined, I put them in a mini bread pan , turned the pan upside down, and cut the block into 4 mini bars. I repeated this a second time with the remaining mixture and then put them all in snack bags.
Once I discovered Sex and the City reruns on the E! channel, I settled comfortably on my couch and wrapped myself up in my Slanket with some tea.
A perfect Sunday. I hope you enjoyed yours as well!
