Presents!!! :)

I came home today to two lovely packages… the first package was another box of Chobani!!  To be fair I let them know that they had already sent me a box, but Tiffany at Chobani is apparently very aware of how much I love her lovely yogurts.  😀  IMG_2124

Just look at those beauties… apparently I wasn’t the only one curious to see what was inside.  Peekay couldn’t resist poking his little Siamese face around the box of goodies.IMG_2127

My second box o’ treats was from the lovely people at Gnu!  I got a wonderful assortment of Gnu bars to try.  I’m so excited – I’ve never tried their bars and cannot wait to try them.IMG_2128

IMG_2129 Especially this flavor…

I whipped up a fabulous Swiss Chard Pie for dinner and popped it in the oven to cook.  It’s not really pie, more like a Swiss Chard souffle over a delicious crispy gluten-free bottom crust.  I’ve never made it on my own though so I was a little nervous…IMG_2133

Since it takes almost an hour to cook I decided to whip up a batch of chocolate snap cookie dough for some Faux-Reos I’m making for Christmas.  This is part of Christmas task #1.  I get incredibly excited about Christmas if you haven’t noticed…IMG_2134 IMG_2137

When my Chard Pie was ready I dug in… so insanely delicious!  Swiss Chard wasn’t on sale, so I subbed in spinach.  I guess it was technically Spinach Pie… Regardless, it was sooo good.  Afterwards I had a nice bowl of popcorn while catching up on yesterday’s Gossip Girl and PrivilegedIMG_1982

Off to do more Christmas crafts!!  G’night moon!

    great treats!! That’s awesome about the chobani, i’d eat and post about them, however i’m lacking the funds to promote Chobani out of my own pocket 😦 Have a great night that Spinach pie sounds delish!

    food looks fab! Those are such great presents! I need to go get me some Chobani! I drove all the way to whole foods last week and they were out of chobani 😦 I ended up buying a different kind of yogurt that was terrible!

    Love Tiffany!

    Luck girl- Chobani and Gnu in one day!!
    I have had Gnu bars before- every flavor and they are all SO good. Tons of fiber in them, too.
    Have a great night 🙂

    Wow, that is too cool for freebies!

    hey! do you make popcorn home made or bagged in the micro?

  • 9. Kristie  |  December 3, 2008 at 10:14 am

    TWO food packages?! Wow I’m jealous. 😛 Lucky you!
    That pie thing looks really really good. It’s making me hungry.

    carolinebee Try contacting Chobani directly through their website… they might be willing to send you a sample package if you agree to post on your site.

    Erin I just linked up the recipe to the bolded “Swiss Chard Pie” in the post. If that doesn’t work, just go to my “Edibles” page. That’s where I list all my recipes.

    Megan I was really psyched to see how much fiber they had! I’m hoping that means they do more to kill my hunger than most bars do.

    seeleelive I always make my popcorn on the stove. Just a little olive oil and some corn kernals in a covered pot over a medium low burner. Sprinkled with tons of salt afterwards… 😉

    So jealous of the Chobani package! Although I just saw what you commented back to carolinebee, and I think I may try that too! And your Spinach Pie and popcorn look delicious!!
