JB is currently in Lyon, catching up with family.
I'd love to have gone with him, but as i just returned from a 3 week holiday and am off 3 days next week for a wedding, I couldn't really justify it : (
So last night, after a really weird yoga class called "Warrior" (to which i will not be returning. ever again.) I made these almond butter granola bars.
Some bedtime reading for you, if you fancy it: Advantages of almond butter compared to peanut butter
They are not blowing me away i have to admit. However, i did not use the dried cherries as the recipe suggests. I though "ewww no that will make it far too sweet".
But of course, my problem now is that the end result is not sweet - it's too nutty.
So if you try this, do not make the same mistake I did - use those dried cherries!
However, the bars are still completely edible - i have brought some in to the office today for colleagues and I just munched on one before i wrote this!
So not a total waste of money then - buying those organic fruits and nuts!
Do any of you know Garance Doré. I really love her and her blog!
I particularly enjoyed this post : I'm fine with it
I especially cherish what she says about smiling. I love that so much about New York.
There are some people who are great at having a mysterious air about them and are fine with not smiling much. Paris will love these people.
Not me though - there is no mystery about me. I like smiling and i like to see smiling faces.
It's how i'm wired and we're all wired differently, n'est-ce pas?
Leading on from Garance - her boyfriend is The Sartorialist a.k.a. Scott Schuman.
I spotted one of his latest photos, and it took me back to New York.
Our apartment was so close to Lafayette Street. Sob.
That plastic Starbucks cup, it's like a uniform in NYC during the summer. Sob Sob.
The polished, put together look. Like every female New Yorker! Sob sob sob.
I'm off to the park now over lunch. I've just started Nancy Mitford's "The Pursuit of Love".
Any of you bloggers out there happened to read it? Thoughts?
Tomorrow is Thursday, what a lovely thought!
