Monday I shared with you guys February’s SRC post. Holla for the Secret Recipe Club! Love that thing!! Anyways, I made Old World Pumpkin Bars, and they ware pretty gosh darn fabulous, so I recommend you check them out and this lovely lady’s blog from whom I got the recipe from. Loved getting to know her a little more and try one of her recipes.
High school soccer tryouts also started, those are always fun…in the 40 degree weather. outside.
Tuesday was actually a somewhat exciting day for me, I got accepted into The National Honor Society! It was kind of cool, throughout the day people go around to classes who have kids invited to the National Honor Society and hand out these pretty little flowers to those who are accepted. I can see how it would be totally annoying for people who didn’t get accepted because some people really just parade those flowers around. But anyways being accepted in the National Honor Society is really quite a load off my chest, it makes me feel a little less stressed with the whole college thing since it looks pretty good to schools.
Wednesday I decided to share another pumpkin recipe. What can I say? Monday kinda got me in the pumpkin mood. Plus I had a little left over pumpkin puree I wanted to use up. I made some white chocolate chip pumpkin granola bars. ohmygawd. ah-mazing. Best granola bars I have ever eaten. Better than those Quaker ones. (Not to toot my own horn or anything, but… TOOT TOOT!) Trust me. Just make them.
Also, Wednesday was Leap Day! Woohoo!! Happy February 29th. Do you know anybody who was born on the 29th?! That has got to be a crazy birthday to have.
Thursday was pretty much like a Friday for me since we didn’t have school Friday! Woohoo! But then again, I also had soccer tryouts. We have been 2-a-days all week so I was pretty worn out and there was not way I was going to try and look presentable and go out when I got home at like 9:15.
Friday I shared with you guys a cheesy baked potato soup. A perfect meal for Friday during Lent. When we ate this, it wasn’t on a Friday so we had it with ham sandwiches but this soup is hearty enough to have a nice big bowl on it’s own, or with some bread, or even a nice grilled cheese sandwich!
