Happy 4th of July to all my US readers. Today I will be indulging in one of my favorite family traditions...laying around watching other people play tennis. My dad used to call it "pigging out" on tennis (I miss you Dad!). Roger Federer is up today, he is probably my all time favorite men's player. Better go make waffles.
Enjoy this fun video of Roger and Stephan Edberg (my 2nd most favorite men's player)!
Blog reader Sue Schoch just sent me this picture of her AWARD WINNING Mimi's Bloomers quilt. She won a special award for her use of color at the Vermont Quilt Festival. I just love this version. Congrats Sue!!!!
FYI All the Mimi's Bloomers small patterns are still free. You can purchase the center block, Miss Mimi, from Patternspot.
Here is my latest installment in the healthy eating category. These energy bites are super yummy! I think no-bake is a bit misleading since you need to toast the oats and almonds but that makes them taste really good.
1 1/2 cups rolled oats 1 cup blanched almonds 1/2 cup almond butter 1/2 cup maple syrup 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I like mini’s for this)
Place oats and almonds on a cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes at 350. Transfer to a blender when cool and grind into a coarse meal. Mix in other ingredients. Scoop into balls. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
