I then topped the potatoes with the above mixture and a little low sodium Provolone cheese. I also topped Josh's with the chicken. The above recipe is an adjusted version of this recipe.
The breakfast/treat recipe that I made today was apple bars! I had a lot of apples in our fruit bowl and I saw that a lot of bloggers had gone apple picking this weekend (i.e. Sammie and Bridget) , so I thought it would be perfect. I was inspired by this recipe, but adjusted it quite a bit:
5 cups tart apples, cored, peeled, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Mix chopped apples, sugar, and almonds. Let sit for 30 minutes- 2 hours.
Add vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla. In a seperate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Mix wet and dry ingredients together:
In other exciting news, I found these cool arnold rolls at the store this weekend. I am going to use them in Josh's lunch tomorrow and will let you know what he thinks about them!!
