Day 2 of #SmoresWeek!

This is kind of torturous for me because I decided to go paleo on Saturday or Sunday or somewhere around there. I can’t remember, my brain is not functioning correctly due to lack of pizza and sushi.

I’m not doing it longterm.

Also, not really paleo because I still put large amounts of splenda in my coffee and drink 15 Diet Pepsis a day.

But, foodwise… paleo.

It’s been…

Uggghhhh.

I just want a warm chocolate chip cookie.

That’s it. Just one cookie.

To distract myself, I’ve been binge-watching Wentworth. Have you seen it? It’s like Orange is the New Black but without the funny parts and I was bawling halfway through the first episode. It’s intense.

Are you loving summer?

I’m loving summer. This has been the best summer of my life and we’re only a few weeks in. My kids are all at really good ages for outdoorsy things right now and we’re just really loving everything central Texas has to offer.

Plus, we’re counting down the days to our next roadtrip!

Wait. Another roadtrip with 3 boys and a dog?

Amanda, are you crazy?

Maybe.

Happy Monday!

How’s the time change treating you?

Won’t lie, I slept until 9:42 yesterday morning.

Can we talk about how awesome it is to have kids that can pour their own cereal and entertain themselves for a little while? I feel for all of you with tiny ones.

It was also really nice to have daylight for so long! It was almost 8 by the time the sun finally faded. You know what that means?

Food bloggers are no longer cooking dinner at 2 pm! Yay sunlight!

Loaded Cookie Bars - this easy recipe starts with a boxed cookie mix and are stuffed with chocolate, peanut butter, candy, and coconut!

I recently had a really fun opportunity to participate in a baking Blog Hop. So I baked something, sent it off to Becky of Somewhat Simple, and received the yummiest Double Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies from Jenny of Picky Palate.

This Blog Hop featured the new Pillsbury Purely Simple baking mixes. They contain simple ingredients, no colors, no preservatives, and no artificial ingredients. Have you tried them yet?

I used the Pillsbury Purely Simple for these Loaded Cookie Bars and it was fabulous. The mix only requires a stick of butter and an egg if you want to make sugar cookies. I, of course, added more than that! This bars have white chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, coconut, and milk chocolate candies!

I would’ve added more but I ran out of things in my baking cabinet!

I love these kinds of bars! Something fun and different in every bite! Plus the chewy cookie itself!

And since I started with the Pillsbury Purely Simple baking mix, these took no time to whip up! The hardest part was waiting for the butter to soften!

Happy Tuesday guys!

Did you watch football last night? I had it on but I’m not really into either team so I was more worried about painting my nails and online window shopping for fall clothes. You know how it goes!

I also made myself a delicious #MeatlessMondayNight meal!

One of my favorite football season meals is kabobs with spicy peanut sauce. But since I wanted to sideline meat last night, I decided to recreate that into this delicious Roasted Sweet Potato Pasta with Spicy Peanut Sauce.

Sounds weird? No! Peanut butter and sweet potato is one of my alltime favorite combos. I’ve been making these Peanut Butter Crusted Sweet Potato Fries for years now and I always drizzle them with sriracha. So good.

So it’s pasta (I used mini farfalle – use whatever small pasta you like), roasted sweet potato, and then the spicy peanut sauce made with Silk Cashewmilk.

I love Silk Cashewmilk so much! It’s one of the only things on my grocery list that I’m willing to go to another store for if my usual store is out.

It is lactose free, dairy free, cholesterol free, contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, enrolled in or verified by the non-GMO Project, and is responsibly produced. And that goes for all Silk products!

And it’s delicious! Also, it comes in chocolate which is also on my grocery list each week.

Anyway, I used the Cashewmilk to make the spicy peanut sauce for this pasta super creamy and delicious.

The pasta turned out seriously delicious. The spicy sauce with the sweetness of the potatoes and the green onions just all worked together. I’d be more that willing to eat this meal for #MeatlessMondayNight next week and the week after and probably the week after.

Not eating pasta? Use spaghetti squash! I also love spicy peanut sauce on squash and I bet it’d be extra yummy with the roasted sweet potatoes!
