Anyway, keeping up the same Friday tradition I've had for the past few weeks, here are some things I'm into this week.
I just joined Pinterest! I literally just joined a few hours ago so I'm working on it but definitely feel free to follow me! I can't figure out how to get the button on the side of my blog because for some reason Blogger will only add a URL and I have HTML code for it? Oh well, for now please just click HERE to follow! ;) If anyone has any pinterest advice I'd love to hear it!
Another song that will be played out in a week but I'm loving anyway is Gotye ft. Kimbra "Somebody That I Used To Know." It's a great song and Kimbra's (the girl) part is pretty much the story of my life, Ha!
The minute I saw Gabby's Raw Lemon Coconut Hemp Seed Bites I knew I had to make them... soon! I figured it was a perfect way to start my pantry challenge so after I got home from work today I made a batch for myself :) They are SOOOOO good and super easy to make. Thanks for the great recipe Gabby, I'm so glad I found your blog!
BUBBLE TEA!! I have loved this stuff ever since I was a grad student in Seattle (5-6 years ago) and there were 3 bubble tea places within 3 blocks of my apartment. It is tea with some sort of fruit flavor and tapioca pearls. It's so good and I hadn't had one in so long! I found out that a new place opened close to my house and they had bubble tea so I naturally made my way over there. This one is peach tea with tapioca pearls. Sorry the picture is so ridiculous, I was practically hanging out of the car taking it. The place was very small but cute, had a lot of different flavor options and even had a few vegan food options! None were gluten free but the bubble tea was enough for me. Before this place opened up you'd have to go to Flushing or Manhattan to get it and I'm never really in either place. It was incredibly sweet so I'll ask them to only put half the usual amount of fruit puree in there next time. Best. Discovery. Ever.
And finally, the start of my pantry challenge this weekend is rocking my socks off! I already wrote up a list of dishes I want to make and I can't wait to start varying up my meals a bit. Hopefully the blog will perk up with some creativity this week :)
Hope you have a great Friday and Saturday! I'll see you on Sunday, and don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY by midnight on Monday!
