Slow Day...

Today has been a slow day. Not feeling the greatest, so the kids and I have been playing indoors!
We started with some Easter Crafts.




Then I finally worked on a craft I have been wanting to do forever! I made vases out of empty glass jars. Fill the jar with a latex or oil based paint coat the inside, and empty any left over. Let dry, and voila! Beautiful homemade vases. Excellent as a gift for someone filled with flowers!
I am filling ours with flowers as Easter gifts.


And lastly, I made some amazingly delicious and oh so healthy trail mix bars.


They are so good...even the kids enjoyed them!
2 cups oats, 1/2 chopped peanuts. Toast these two together.
Mash 3 bananas then add 1cup natural peanut butter and melt (microwave or stove-top)
Let both slightly cool, then combine together. I then added about 1/4 cup of Milled Flax Seed.
Stir all together.
If you want to sweeten them slightly you can add honey or as I did, some chocolate chips. A little goes a long way.
Mix all together. Spread out in a baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper.
Bake 350 for approx 30 minutes. until golden brown and edges crunchy.
Cool and Enjoy!
I highly recommend these as they are quick and easy to make, and a healthy snack or breakfast meal even...if you added the sweetener, then maybe after lunch snack :-)

Now, nap time for the kids and spin time for me :-)
Happy Thursday!
