Chocolate Covered Cranberries

My Nina and Nino gave Ben and I some snacks for the plane ride back to CA. There were gingerbread bites…IMG_3642

and chocolate covered cranberries espresso beans. The company messed up and put espresso beans NOT cranberries in the package!!! Ha! I was disappointed, but Ben loves choc covered espresso so it worked out. Isn’t that weird though??IMG_3641

I wasn’t sure what I wanted for lunch so I just threw some stuff together… broccoli and carrots with hummus and leftover chickpeas.IMG_3632

My light lunch left room for a big snack :) I microwaved a pear with cinnamon and sugar. Then, I put that on top of cottage cheese and added almonds and chocolate chips. YUM!!! I went back for more chocolate chips and PB after this pic.IMG_3635

That snack let out the snack monster and I ended up munching on pieces of a granola bar and bread with PB too. I don’t know why.?

Dinner included toast with butter (since I was making some for Ben and kept eating his, I figured I ought to just make my own).IMG_3640

and a big salad with spinach, onions, roasted broccoli and chickpeas. There is a lot of green going on today!IMG_3639

I have to get rid of the chocolate chips in my house since I keep grabbing handfuls of them. So, I made peppermint bark. I’m not the biggest fan of candy canes so I’m hoping this will deter me from eating too much of it.IMG_3644

I am super tired, but I may try and fight it so I can watch an episode of Lost before bed šŸ˜‰

    Those chickpeas with the broccoli looked very good, what’s seasoned on them? And ohhmann, Peppermint Bark is amazing! I’m not a candy cane person at all so I definitely underestimated it the first time i had it, but i love the mint-chocolatey taste of just about anything… its a weakness! :)
