Return of Kale Chips!

I had a bit of a late lunch of Fage yogurt and a banana with peanut butter. The yogurt was topped with sliced strawberries and a sprinkle of cheerios. I guess this looks more like a breakfast plate, but, it was a great lunch! 

The rest of my day was filled with a wonderful date with my best friend from home. We pretty much spent 5 hours on my porch just chatting away about life. She recently returned from a trip to China and she brought me back all sorts of neat things! I’m particularly excited to use the chop sticks.

As we chatted I munched on the bag of “Chinese” peanut M & Ms. By 7pm I was hunngrrryy and whipped up aquick dinner, including KALE CHIPS! It’s been quite a while since the last time I’d made ’em!  I used the Kale we got at the farmer’s market, it was the flat leaf kind, came out delicious!  I made two trays-full and devoured them both … 

The rest of dinner was composed of gyoza dumplings and a big beet! While cooking dinner I ate a few hunks of french baguette. 
A great filling dinner. Love how easy the gyozas are to steam up in a flash! Topped these with soy sauce. After dinner I was excited to see that my Amazon package had arrived – its contents are very exciting! After a few months of deliberating I finally took the plunge and bought a French Press coffee maker. I’m a huge coffee drinker and always use an automatic drip coffee. But after having Jeff’s french press coffee there’s just no denying how much better pressed coffee tastes. So, I’m excited to use this guy this year! I may test it out tomorrow morning – mom is eager to try it out.
I was then inspired by Tina of Carrots n Cake and her recent post on Kodiak Cakes. They sounded great and having to only add water to the mix sounded like a great camping trip item! I found a 3 pack on Amazon for just $11 so gave it a shot. 3 boxes though… that’s a lot of flapjacks .. better get eatin’!
