I told you these would happen.
Well, they had to happen.. I made them over a week ago. Ugh… there are so many pretty photographed things that I’ve made way longer than a week ago that have yet to see the light of “blog”. I never really know what to do when that happens.
Most of my recipes have anecdotes, meanings, jokes, stories… but when I made the food a month ago… all of those memories that usually cling to things that I make.. fade.
Because I’m sixty. And I can’t remember before October.
Ok not true. I can. But I’d have to sit on the comfy couch covered with purple blankets for a really long time making a really hard thinking-face that my roommates might mistake for something else and tell me to get off the couch right now.
More proof that I’m sixty. Also I can’t hear. It makes for good misinterpretations by me always. I’d love to share them with you but, duh, I can’t remember them right now.
Right, moral of the story… I think I have to abandon those recipes that didn’t have time to make it to the blog and just move on forward. The emotional connections… they’re gone. I’ll make new ones.
These babies are super fresh in my mind. YUM.
I don’t know if you guys have had Luna bars. They occupy a pretty special place in my heart/mind/thing.
1) I was an athlete kid, sports nutrition bars were exciting and seemed super necessary for me to be a super powerful athlete.
2) Luna bars were made for GIRLS. Woah, special.
3) Chocolatey-Crispy-Gooey goodness that I got to pretend was a health food.
This is not a health food. No there’s no refined sugar, but they’re as sweet as my freaking roommates. Don’t be fooled. Also, you control the amount of protein and other goodness in them based on the amount of powders etc. that you throw in.
Oh and yes, obviously these were also made for Coralie. These are good. There was only half of a pan left for Coralie.
