Things I am loving Friday

by forloveofcarrots on January 4, 2013

Hey there!! It’s Friday already! Wouldn’t it just be wonderful if work weeks were always this short!

Since its Friday and nobody really wants to do much work/thinking I figured I would share with you some new things I am loving as of late!

My beloved Cascadian Farms came out with a new granola flavor and it is the best flavor yet!

Berry Cobbler Granola! It has pieces of blueberries and cranberries in it and goes perfectly with a cup of Chobani!

RUSKS!! These aren’t new to me I lived off of them in South Africa, I am not even kidding! I loved them so much I tried to recreate them when I came home; you can find my attempt here. My mom found a website online and got me 2 boxes for Christmas! I am really trying to savor the boxes but I just popped open the second box so I can’t for see it lasting very long!

Some body left these mini hand sanitizers in all of our mailboxes at work! Oh my goodness the smell of this makes me want to eat a zillion ginger bread cookies!

While stumbling through the Bryant Park Markets my mom and I came across Jammin’ Nut! They had a bunch of different flavored peanut butters, I got a cookie dough peanut butter and my mom got some health peanut butter!

Tried anything new lately?

Have you fell in love with a food in another state or country and not been able to find it near you?
Aside from rusks, I fell in love with Drink Chia at HLS 2 years ago and I am sad that we don’t carry it anywhere locally!

Cookie dough peanut butter is a most excellent choice, I am sure I would have chosen the exact same one :) Those biscuits sound quite interesting as well, yum!

Rusks?! Tell me more! The granola sounds awesome too. When I studied abroad in Rome I TOTALLY got spoiled with awesome pasta dishes. Now I’ve got to rely on myself and I just don’t do it justice. ;)

I have been told that no pasta will ever taste the same if you experience pasta from Italy! Sometimes they have the rusks on amazon :) and my recipe did not do them justice :(

That granola sounds so delicious! And I bet I would eat my hand if I put on that gel.
Well, that happens to me all the time since I get to taste some things from the U.S. once in a while and can not get it here. McVities, Justins Almond Butter, Flavored Stevia, Larabars….so I just live vigurosly through all the US bloggers :-)

Those rusks look right up my alley, so cool! Glad you found some. The Jammin Nut PB also sounds incredible, I love flavored PBs. Been jammin on PB Crave lately myself. I can’t wait for my Cascadian Farm package to arrive, I’m expecting one too! Of course I’ll be mixing it with Cho as well. You know I love my Cho. I can’t think of any distant food items in the grocery store that I can’t find but I so wish I lived closer to Wildflour in Pawtucket, RI so I could go there every single weekend and have a savory vegan scone. Have never been able to find one like it elsewhere.

Ooh I didn’t know Bath & Body Works had that scent!! That’s definitely dangerous for me, haha. Just looking at the picture I can imagine how good it smells.

I’ve never had rusks before…I’m definitely intrigued. I love the idea of cranberries in granola! I’m a huge fan of craisins, so I think it would be a great punch of sweetness. :)

I’m obsessed with Ouma rusks too – my dad is south african and I grew up eating them – my parents still live there for part of the year and i get them to bring them back to the states for me – that and good old cheap freshpak roiboos tea!!
