Look what I brought home from work today!


A giant bag of mini LarabarsWHEEE!!! 


A friend of mine at work has a fiancé who was at a race this weekend where they were handing these bad boys out (woah, that was confusing!) Apparently there were a TON leftover so he got to bring some home and, since they know I heart Larabars, they gave me the entire bag!


From what I can tell, all my faves are inside. Peanut Butter Cookie, Cashew Cookie, Coconut Cream Pie, Key Lime Pie and Lemon Bar. Larabars for years. This totally made my week! :D


I’m still in a “I just got back from vacation last night and have a million things to do before I’m leaving for another semi-vacation in two days” mode, so I made a tasty, yet quick, 5 minute dinner tonight. Grilled Cheese Salad!


Don’t adjust your monitors, those are grilled cheese croutons in my salad – YES!


All I did was rip up some baby spinach and toss it with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and Bisignano’s Italian Dressing


Then I cubed up a grilled cheese sandwich that I had buttered on both sides and cooked on low heat so it got really super crisp. Toss again and serve!


Tell me grilled cheese croutons don’t kick stale, store-bought croutons to the curb! YUM! Cheesey, crunchy and perfectly soaked with zesty Italian dressing. The best. :)


In other news, Ben acquired an illness while I was gone (I know, I leave the man alone for two days… ;) ) so I’ve got to go play nurse. I’ll also be answering emails, so if you’ve sent me one in the past week, you should hear back from me tonight!

OH! Speaking of butter – I need to announce the winner of the I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter Great Grilling Giveaway! You guys had me drooling over your favorite ways to enjoy warm, melty butter and giggling over your… eccentric… uses as well. Buttered cheerios anyone? Tehehe! ;)

The winner is…
