Saturday Tasted Good

This delicious jar of TJ's Almond Butter had reached it's last yummy clump and was ready to be reincarnated as joats (Jar Oats- aren't I clever? Feel free to use the term liberally)!

My joats consisted of 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup soymilk, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp flax seeds, 1 scoop protein and the remainder of the almond butter (appx 1 tbsp). Stir, shake and refridgerate. 

I was up a bit later than expected last night (I FINALLY fell asleep at about 3:45a. UGH.), so it was a late morning. I sucked down an iced coffee and decided to head into Manhattan to deliver birthday cupcakes to a friend.
 I pass over the Belt Parkway on my way to the subway. These folks are headed to Long Island, and that traffic was NOT moving. Good luck, friends. 

BLOGGER FAIL- I didn't take a single picture of the delicious cupcakes, my awesome friend or his super gorgeous stand at the farmers market his family (Stokes Farm) sells at. Too busy catching up! 

 After delivering cupcake happiness, Joe and I stopped at Whole Foods in Columbus Circle for dinner. I snagged a bowl of Indian yumminess...

 And had a few bites of Joe's parfait...

When we got home, we finished prep for tomorrow's beach BBQ! The veggies are ready to be grilled!

What sorts of delightfully embarrassing things can you talk YOUR signifcant other into doing? Avocado Oatmeal Mask, perhaps? Joe actually asked if we could eat it. Ummm. No. I like to beautify while doing kitchen chores, and decided that tonight, Joe would too. 

The fridge is packed to the max with BBQ excitement and the masks have been wiped off our faces!

When your husband works at Wafels and Dinges, dessert can get decadent. Thank goodness he doesn't bring me these every night, or running like a beast would be a bit more difficult. 

What was the most delicious part of your Saturday?

I hope you have a great time at your BBQ--the food looks great, even if it isn't cooked yet ;) And too hilarious with the masks! I don't think I could ever get a guy to do that for me haha.

I was all too familiar with that traffic yesterday! I was heading back to upstate NY from the Hamptons and it took a loooong time. I absolutely love Whole Foods in Columbus Circle too - your meal looks wonderful :-)

@Liz- Thanks! I'll post about the BBQ tonight! :)

@Amy- OY- I feel you- the traffic looked NUTS all day- hope you had a great time in the Hamptons, though! :)

@Sofia- Yes, they're QUITE dangerous... Let me know if you ever go and I'll share one with you- 1/2 the calories! :) And yes, Joe's pretty super. :)
