Chocolate Cupcake w/Peanut Butter (whipped icing)

Yes folks today is National Cupcake Day… It’s a holiday… no reason you can’t  have one!

I picked a chocolate w/peanut butter icing and let me just say… IT’S  NOTHING  LIKE the chocolate/pb cake I grew up on in Hagerstown! <–it's the best!

What is your favorite flavor? I love Yellow or Chocolate  cake with white buttercream icing. It's the best flavor combination! Mmmmmm get yourself one! Then burn it off 🙂

FREE Outdoor Movie Festivals in the DMV

MOVIES

CLICK THIS PICTURE TO SEE LOCATIONS

School is out, and if you’re one who has children, you know it gets a bit challenging trying to find inexpensive activities to keep them busy. This is especially hard when you have multiple children.
One year I discovered this little activity that is absolutely
FREE <– (one of my favorite words)

The outdoor movie festivals in my local area provide a way for families to gather under the stars and enjoy a night out at the movies FREE of charge. Now don’t get me wrong… there are some festivals that double as fundraisers but you don’t have to participate to be able to enjoy the movies. In addition most places allow you to bring your own snacks. I started a little tradition for my children and we’re going to recreate it for my Grandchildren. Here is how we prepared for the Outdoor Movie Festival!

1. We make various sandwiches (every kid has their fav)
2. Pop microwave popcorn and put it in ziplock bags (1 bag per child)
3. Pack movie candy ( Dollar Tree) has a good selection
4. Pack the cooler with their favorite drinks
5. Pack 2 blankets to lay out (little ones WILL fall asleep)
6. If they can carry their chair they can bring it
7. Enjoy!!!

PHOTO ASSIGNMENT- send me a picture of your family at the outdoor movie festival to: look4thefro@gmail.com

nOvas 1st Try- Organic Gemini Tiger Nuts

Ok…HAVE YOU TRIED #TIGERNUTS?
If anyone knows me, they know I’m am very picky when it comes to food. My resolution for 2015 was to expand my palate. Soooooo here goes my review of TIGER NUTS!

On first look…they look look like a dried bean.

image

Upon further inspection  of package it says. THEY ARE NOT NUTS..they are actually tubers, small root veggies. The taste is supposed  to be sweet and nutty. Tiger Nuts fueled 80% of the PALEO ancestors diet 2 million years ago. SEE MY VIDEO BELOW!

image

This is the video reaction to me trying  Tiger Nuts for the very 1st time!

Ok…as you can see…I DO NOT like Tiger Nuts, but I really  only like peanuts. These have the consistency of a walnut, flavored like a chestnut… you can also put them in water to soften and enhance flavor.

I’m going to try a wet one, then I’m going to try to plant one… i mean it is a tuber…shouldn’t  it sprout something? Lol check back. On a scale of 1-5 I’d  have to say 1… I didn’t  like them at all
😦  sorry #DeerNuts
