After more than 2 years of being a SAHM I find myself in need of more “adult” talk. Hubby’s working all day so I reached out to some wonderful moms in the community for play dates and “adult” talk.
We went out a couple of times. I’m having such a great time. I hope there will be many more play dates in the future.
Sometimes we decide to spend a couple of hours at the park and we have to pack a snack.
Some bring a piece of fruit, some biscuits, some a couple of sandwiches. And there she is, the mom that brings cookies! I’m that mom! (wasn’t that hard to guess, was it?) I mean, I already confessed about Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Almond Cookies.
Yesterday we were planning to meet again.
So I get up bright and early, took some oats, fruit and nuts out of the cupboard and decided to make some granola bars.
Granola bars are so versatile. You can add whatever fruit/nuts/seeds you have handy.
Mine had oats, golden raisins, cranberries, apricots, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and coconut.
The hardest part, when making granola bars, is to wait for them to completely cool before cutting them.
After keeping the pan a couple of hours in the fridge I cut them into bars, pack them in treat bags and had my fingers crossed the other moms would still tell me when a play date is scheduled.
Now you’d think we give each other a big hug, they forgive me for bringing the cookies and live happily ever after.
Wish I could tell you so. But the moment I got out of the house it started to rain. No play date. No big hugs.
I still wonder if I had made cookies it had rained. That question will be on my mind for quite a while.
Sending love your way,
