When I heard that today was a snow day, the first thing that popped into my mine was, "I can blog tomorrow!!!!!!!!"  So, here I am!  This will be a bit of a longer post, so stay tuned. First off, I think I've mastered the scramlette:

Filled with dark chocolate dreams peanut butter -- extremely delicious!

Not the prettiest pictures in the world, but I think you get the idea -- it actually looks like an omelet! (Although I think I will still call it a scramlette because I like the name better :)  The trick is to make sure there are bubbles throughout the entire top of the omelet before attempting to flip it over.  The result is much lighter and much more like a pancake. I love the scramlette both ways!


Now, for the first recipe, I present......


Chocolate Covered Granola Bites

Ingredients:
Some of this

A pinch of this and a dash of that! (Sorry, but there's actually no this and no that for a pinch and a dash :)


Directions:
Melt the chocolate chips.  Dip large chunks of granola in the chocolate until the granola is completely coated.  Place the chocolate covered chunks on a small plate and freeze until the chocolate has hardened.

The perfect snack/dessert!  Those little guys are happy in my tummy :)


The second recipe is also really simple but really tasty!  I used to love chicken salad, so this is my vegetarian version.  The flavors are definitely not complex, and there is not celery, carrot, etc. (I like my chicken salad smoooooooth!).  But I still LOVED this!  As a matter of fact, I might use this snow day as an excuse to make another batch.  Yay for snow days!


Chickpea Salad

Ingredients:
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 big ole' spoonful of mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
Scant 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Scant 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
About 1 teaspoon (+ or --) honey mustard or regular yellow mustard
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:
Squash the chickpeas (that sounds almost criminal!)
Picture
Once your done apologizing to the poor, innocent chickpeas, whip in the remaining ingredients:
Picture
You can now spread your abused chickpea salad onto a sandwich (or you could even use it as a dip!)
Picture
Boy, descriptive adjectives can sound so hurtful! ;)


Congratulations!  You just finished my looooong post!  Well, not quite.  Your not getting off without a question. :)


The daily question:  What do you do on snow days (or days you have to go to work)?
I'm hoping to do some baking!  I would also normally go for a long ride on my horse, but when it's seven below outside, that really isn't a good idea!

When weather is to pretty or snow day people make some different recipes and enjoy the weather. They make different delicious foods or many sweet foods. And take many pictures of these foods that are easy to make.
