The socks were practically dripping as if Avery herself played the game, and most of her body due to an unused umbrella, but go Gigi go!! She was delighted to cheer on her friend and I was delighted to feel like a soccer mom.
After the game we were both in need of a pick-me-up, and how convenient it was that a drive thru was on our way out of town.

|Skinny two pump pumpkin spice latte|
Quite often I'm a sucker for a vanilla scone to go with my Pumpkin spice Latte, but I opted for a much healthier treat, but delicious I might say.
Every day Energy bars:
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Adams creamy P/B
2 Tb pure maple syrup
1 Tb canola oil
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1 t pure vanilla extract
2 cups old fashion oats(you can use the quick cooking also)
2 cups Kashi cereal(I used the combination one.....picture below)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ(you'll find this in the cereal section)
1/2 cup chopped toasted plain almonds
1/2 cup raisins(or dried figs are good too)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips(or use semi sweet, or milk chocolate)
1/2 t salt
Spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, P/B, maple syrup, canola oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Stir and cook until mixture just begins to bubble, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
In large bowl, combine oats, cereal, wheat germ, almonds, raisins, and salt.
Pour warm mixture over dry mixture and stir gently with a spatula.
Add chocolate chips, and stir gently until combined.
Spread in the prepared pan, cover with parchment, or wax paper and press firmly into dish.
Allow to cool completely in fridge or counter. Cut into squares or bars.(These will keep about two weeks in the fridge, if they last that long)
Awwwww, I'm starting to feel my toes.
