Buttery plum pie bites

I was going to start this post by telling you all about plums and how they’re the best thing you can have during this season, and how I didn’t even like them as a kid, but then life happened. And now I don’t feel like writing about plums anymore.

I got a call from a card management center and the woman on the other end of the line informed me of some odd transactions made with my Visa card. I didn’t notice anything myself, so I was shocked by it all. And confused and by the end of the day pretty pissed.

Card fraud when I’m really careful? When I rarely even use the card? When there are codes you need to enter that are supposed to protect you? What the hell? Well apparently this shit still happens and it can happen to anyone.

Chocolate dipped coconut peanut granola bars

I’m eating the last granola bar of the second batch made in the past 2 weeks as I write this. Two batches in two weeks sounds a lot but it’s really not. Granola bars are a great snack and both Rok and I love them, so we always have them on hand. And if you’re wondering whether I’ll make another batch soon, the answer is hell yes (!), I will.

Granola bars and me go way, way back. When I was in primary school my mom often tucked one in my bag whenever we went on school trips, and when I was in school I lived off them. They were often my only snack at work or breakfast at college and they are still my snack of choice. Speaking of snacks, years ago I bought those round plastic containers that protect your apple/orange/other fruit when you carry them around in a bag. Totally great and useful, but when compared to a granola bar, they still take up more space and as good as a Golden Delicious is, it’s just not a granola bar. That’s why the plastic containers are now collecting dust in one of the drawers.
