I love LARA BAR!!!

Seriously. I love them. I love the bars, I love their company....I think I may make them a "hearts frame" like I made my Oikos. Megan over at Megan's Munchies had a competition for a new bar from Lara called Jamfrakas. I was so excited to enter, because they aren't sold anywhere in my coastal town. Then Megan announced that LaraBar was so kind that they were going to give free bars to everyone!!!!!

As you can see from the pic above, my loot came today!! I was so excited to see that cute little box in my mail. Since becoming gluten free, LaraBar has SAVED me in a pinch. It is so difficult to eat quickly and outside of your house on the go. Gluten free fast food? Nope. Most of the fries are fried with gluten-containing foods AND I refuse to eat a salad from a fast food joint. I just can't do it. But now I always keep a LaraBar in my purse (lately it's been a Peanut Butter Cookie LaraBar) and it has bailed me out many, many times.
First I tried the Chocolate Chip Cosmocrisp. It was SO GOOD!! It seriously tasted like one of those really good granola bars from your childhood, but without the high fructose corn syrup and weirdo three-lettered preservatives. This bar was great! Plus the chocolate is Fair Trade! I can't wait to try another one tomorrow.

Max likes JamFrakas.

I'm going to talk to my Co-op about getting these bars in the store. I think kids (and grown-ups!!) will go crazy for them! I asked them to get in the Peanut Butter Cookie Bar and they've been selling like hot cakes, so hopefully they'll be in to these as well.

Tonight for dinner we are baking Lasagna again! Mmmmm...

So glad you got your loot and enjoyed your first bar! I hope that they will stock them for you!

Ha! That could be the same picture as my dog! He always looks at you when you are eating, but when you look at him, he immediately turns his head!

Nice loot!

YUM, those look good!

And I just made lasagna too! I LOVE IT.. and i make it pretty often (easy leftovers for the week too).. and i forget to take pictures of it EVERY TIME... I really should, i have an awesome recipe. I brought it into work one time (fully gluten free & made with turkey) and people here said it was the best lasagna ever!

It's a Barefoot Contessa recipe that I modified... I'll have to post soon -- how do you make yours?

Thanks again Meg!!!! Best giveaway ever.

Yes, Max is very sneaky.

Allie- I can't wait till you post yours. I've been looking for a recipe with turkey. I use the Tinyada lasagna noodles (so good) and then I layer with ricotta, mozzarella, Hormel pepperoni, and tomato sauce. So it ends up tasting like a pizza! It's pretty simple, but I love pepperoni in lasagna!
