Hi all. I have not been the busiest of bees since last I wrote… which means I’m sort of in “cruch time” mode and this is going to be a bit of a quickie.
I tried my last True Delights flavor today: Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry.

This bar was very sweet. A little salt would improve the flavor a lot, but then again I like my trail mix (this tastes very trail mix-y to me) to be both sweet and salty. It’s not as much of a pleasure to chew as the other two flavors were. Overall, the bar is still good, but I probably wouldn’t buy it myself.
Other Quaker True Delights bars I have reviewed:
I’ve been having a bit of a love affair with Veganomicon recently. Tonight, I made my own version of Terry & Isa’s Spicy Tempeh and Broccoli Rabe With Rotelle.
Take some tempeh and cook it up with some spices…
Add a little braised spinach…
Toss it with pasta and voila! Delicious and healthful meal.
I don’t have time right now to type out the recipe, but if you’d like it, let me know and I’ll put it up as soon as I can.
For my “pre-dessert,” I took Sarah’s advice and had some frozen grapes. Amazing! It was like the perfect tart and sweet ice cream, but as finger food. How have I been living without this for so long? I just packed up the rest of the box and froze them, too. Yummy!
I’ll probably have a little chocolatey something while I study a little later. And maybe some tea. With caffeine. This Patch is T-I-R-E-D.
I just started listening to a new audiobook that my dad gave me for Christmas. It’s a book called I See You Everywhere, by one of our favorite authors, Julia Glass. What do you listen to in the car?
