A New Kind of Breakfast

This post is for two of my favorite friends, Amy and Amanda.

I picked up one of our local magazines this week and had never really gotten a chance to scrutinize it, until dance class yesterday.
I saw the above page and my mouth watered. I think it could have been that I was very hungry and the fact that I love everything in the picture: sugar, coffee and oranges! These cookies/ wafers/ bars looked right up my alley.
I tried to explain to my friends that I LOVE things and have grit to them. They laughed and laughed. I don't like anything that has a smooth texture. I tried to explain how Chick-fil-a has gritty ice cream. I LOVE their ice cream. I have also always loved those Biscott cookies that they serve on airplanes. I want to go to every person on the plane and ask if I can have theirs.

Amanda pointed out that these could not be good because they are whole grain. She also pointed out that they say, "golden oat." She reasoned that that would surely be a turn off. She was convinced that they were way too healthy to be good and that she doubted they were sweet.
We all questioned the "energy" they would give?

Well girls, I am here to tell you.....THEY ARE GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They have been my breakfast, snack and dessert!
Steve loves Velveeta, I love belVita.


I haven't seen these. Where did you find them?
You are SO weird. :-)

I love the biscott cookies too. Walmart and walgreens carry them. I once ordered tbem from their website before our stores carried them.

Those cookies do look good! Never got any biscotti the last time I was on a plane but I do love them, all I got the last time on the plane was some pretzels and coffee.

We used to get biscotti cookies from Sam's club but my sister knows how to make them though, at our old church, she made them every year and brought them to the Christmas Eve service for afterwards. She made two different kinds. She's a good cook and loves to bake and sometimes she does goodies as Christmas gifts. She's the baby of the fam, she and I were both adopted but from different Foster parent's. I was 9 mos. old and she was 4 mos. old when coming to the USA.

I'm going to be honest...nothing about those "cookies" look appealing! But, I'm glad you enjoy them!

ha- love the play on words! I saw these at the store this afternoon and thought of you- they come in big boxes here and have different flavors. Do they offer choices in the States?
Jill said…
HAHAHA! The last line in this post was the best.

I love biscoff cookies too. My Mom found biscoff spread that's like peanut butter but taste just like those cookies. She loves it. I thought it was too sweet. You wouldn't like it though because it's smooth and not gritty. UNLESS you were to crumble up some biscoff cookies and eat it that way...that would make it gritty. LOL

I would try these cookies your recommending...they look yummy to me! :)

That is so funny! I want to try them now. I so get what you mean about chick fil a ice cream, I crave it and had it twice this week.

I'm not sure I've ever commented on your blog before. I do not have a blog, so I just read, and I'm sorry if that's cheating :) Or if it's weird; I promise I'm not weird. Anyway, I linked to you from your friend Kelly's blog. I have to say, you are hilarious. You have such a wonderful sense of humor. So thank you!
Hahahahaha!!! What an unexpected find ; ) Have you ever seen the movie True Grit?
Sara Campbell said…
I agree with Kelly. You are weird. :) but I still love you. I'll bring you some gritty turkish cookies this summmer. Thought of you all weekend. Had a 40th girls weekend in a hotel and wished you were there. A lot.

Just so you know...Target now carries the Biscoff cookies!
Erin said…
Ha! I am laughing so hard right now. You are the funniest person ever! The last line is priceless! you should make their commercial!
Hope SK is better soon. Kinley has some awful cold too. yuck!
Megan said…
I had to try these after I read your post and they are delicious! Way better than a granola bar, in my opinion!

I am constantly seeing these on commercials now! Are they gluten free by any chance?

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
