Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s March already? Me neither. But onward we go, kicking off the weekend with a few favorites…
1. Trader Joe’s Swiss Dark Chocolate with whole hazelnuts. This is, hands down, my absolute favorite chocolate. Brimming with whole hazelnuts, they add a fantastic texture to the smooth dark chocolate. Yum!
2. For a little healthier snack, I discovered these apple chips at Costco a few weeks ago. They are crispy and slightly tart, with a good dose of sweetness, too. A fantastic swap for potato chips in size, feel, and texture. And while they don’t have the salty zing of a good potato chip, that tart apple zing more than makes up for it. These totally satisfy my craving for potato chips. And my kids love them!
3. My morning coffee. I’m not exactly addicted to coffee, but my day is much better when I start out with a good mug. My favorite way to make it a little more exciting is to sprinkle some cinnamon over the grounds, so as the water drips through, it picks up just a hint of cinnamon-y goodness. Cinnamon has all sorts of good things for your body, and can help reduce your blood sugar. So I get a 1-2 punch with my little trick — a super tasty cup of joe AND some goodness for my body!
4. Words With Friends. I was introduced to this when my girlfriends visited a couple of weeks ago and now I’m hooked. I hadn’t played scrabble in ages, so I had to dust some cobwebs off. I lost every single one of my first games (I think I started about 10 or 12 the first night I played). But I’m on my 2nd and 3rd round with some games and I’m starting to get the hang of the tricks. . . I may even win a few games this go round! If you have an iPhone or iPad, you have to get this game. There’s a free version (you just have to deal with a few ads) and it’s so addicting!
