Goji Berry Oatmeal + Fran’s Encore

Don’t you hate when you stay up late to write a lengthy blog post and your stupid software EATS it?! Yea, that’s what happened last night…so irritated!

But let’s move on.

Check out my latest bulk bin purchase – goji berries, dried cranberries and coconut flakes. There was a better looking bin of coconut flakes but it had like 10 ingredients in it. The one I got had one – organic coconut flakes. :lol:

I had a fabulous breakfast of goji-berry oatmeal, “sausage” and coffee.

A bag of mini multigrain chips. I think Bailey wants them for himself.

Thank you Food Should Taste Good!! I can’t wait to try all of these!

Since I had avocados on hand, I decided to make a guacamole to test out some chips. I only had avocados and not other guacamole ingredients, so I made a semi-homemade guac with 1/2 avocado, salsa, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

I let hubby pick out our chip flavor to try – The Works.

I made sure to sample a chip without any guacamole so I could really taste the flavor. The chip was very flavorful and I loved how it wasn’t all heavy and oily. These were so better than restaurant chips!

My mom made an impromptu visit so we hit up a local nursery (photos of the goods later) and then decided to eat out. I knew the perfect place! A repeat of the night before – Fran’s Filling Station.

I thought my mom needed to try one of my faves – a local doughtnut.

After saying “later” to my mom, I headed out to a ladies night out at a local bar where we were doing a demo with my dance fitness group.

SO much fun dancing with my girls! We took over the stage at the bar and demoed some of our fave songs. Loved it!

Busy weekend ahead. Gotta run! :) Have a great weekend everyone!

    You’re SO lucky to receive that huge box to sample! I’ve tried the lime and sweet potato flavors, and can’t wait to try the rest. They are AMAZING. I’m having a hard time finding them in my area…. all I can really find is lime, multigrain and sweet potato (sometimes). I can’t wait to try chocolate!

    I think you have sold me on trying Fran’s. I actually passed it a couple of weeks ago and was wondering about it. It must be a great place to try since you’ve been there twice in two days! :)

    Ever since I saw all your oatmeal pictures I’ve been putting cinnamon and cranberries on my oatmeal. Need to pick up some other things at the store next time I go. Goji berries sound like a good idea.

    I am quite curious to hear how the chocolate chips are.
