Yesterday was an EARLY morning. I woke up BEFORE the sun! In my own personal opinion, I don’t think you should wake up before the sun. It’s crazy! So I sleepily fumbled through my shower and rushed to get dressed. I didn’t leave myself enough time for breakfast, let alone coffee. So I decided to try VIA.
I bought a 3 pack of these when they were first released, but had still never thought to try them.
It was actually really good! I definitely boiled my water too hot…I burned my tongue and spilt coffee on my shirt during my commute…but it was still great! Good flavor. I will def buy these again. My breakfast consisted of homemade granola (of course!) and a small glass of OJ.
And so as the sun was rising, I was already well on my way to DUKE University! Since April, I’ve been working within mere miles of Duke, but I still had never really explored. So when I was asked to do an offsite sale at the Duke Divinity School, I jumped at the chance!
Hello gorgeous! This is the Duke Chapel. The offsite sale was held outside the Refectory Cafe, in a building that connects with the chapel. It was such a pretty campus. Driving on campus is another story! I totally get why students love Duke…but why don’t any of the roads connect? I drove around for an hour ( I was given bad directions). It was so frustrating! I could see the chapel, but couldn’t figure out how to get to it. And with six boxes of inventory, walking on foot was not an option! But I finally figured it out, and shook off my bad mood as soon as I saw this chapel. Gorgeous!
I’m ashamed to say that I was so busy at the sale…I didn’t really have time for lunch. I ate an apple. Sad. I did laugh later however, when I spied this
I of course thought of Ang! I was disappointed in the conventional, bigger then my head, apple, but it was all the cafe offered (no organic).
For dinner Parrish and I enjoyed leftovers! Which also aren’t pictured because by the time I got home, I was starving. (Obvi an apple is in no way an appropriate lunch!!)
So for dessert, I whipped up a quick treat from this sweet little book I got in the dollar grabby section at Target:
On page 70 there is a recipe for no-bake peanut butter squares. And let me tell you, they are tasty! I used the Kinnikinnick Smoreables Graham Crackers (which are great BUT don’t read the nutrition facts…eek!!), but that was the only substitution made. I can’t post the recipe because it’s not mine BUT I did find it online here.
Tasty! Parrish and I enjoyed these while watching the new Modern Family. I seriously love that show!
These squares were so good! I loved the texture. The next time I make these, I’m definitely going to top with melted dark chocolate!
I hope you guys are having a great Thursday! Thanks to Veggie Girl for the shipping tips!
