Comforting Monday

Instead of always buying energy bars or breakfast bars I thought we could try a couple different recipes and see if we can make something good to replace them. The first I tried today was called Multigran fruit bars. Its packed with fresh blueberries, dried cranberries, brown sugar and Kashi puffed cereal. I was also able to use the food processor so that was another plus. Baked in a 9x13 the batter going in was pretty thin but they still rose up nice! They are more "cake-like" which is a refreshing change as they are pretty light. Very tasty and perfect for hiking or just snacking!

I was in the mood for comfort food tonight so dinner was Individual mini meat-loaves, mashed potatoes and grilled fresh sweet corn on the cob. It went pretty well together and really had that down home feeling. The meat-loaves were very juicy and the corn was delish! Its been too long since we've had fresh corn.

New pesto recipe for dinner tomorrow... until then!



  2. Wow !! Sweet Corn sounds Great.. I will have to try to get out and get some.
