Summer in the midwest is unpredictable at best.This summer has been pretty decent so far…….and then….holy crap its hot!!!!!!! When it’s hot, the last thing I want is to heat up the kitchen, or eat anything hot….ugh! Asparagus Farro Feta Salad is a cool delicious salad…. when its too hot to cook.
Tim and I had to give up our beloved asparagus patch when we moved, but we still enjoy asparagus as much as ever. With summer heat ramping up I really don’t feel like cooking….I barely feel like eating, although I do manage…LOL
Too hot to bake??? You bet, so don’t! No Bake Tropical Bites are a tasty trip to the Islands without the heat.
Little pop in your mouth snack that are filled with almonds, coconut, and pineapple. And the best part is you don’t have to turn on the oven.
These little bites are good for you too. Almond butter, oatmeal, and flaxseed, make them a clean eating snack as well.
Over the summer our school has a summer crew that does all the work that can’t be done during the school year. For a little extra cash I worked this summer on the paint crew. So, for those who know we well, know I LOVE TO PAINT!!!!!
Perhaps I’m slightly obsessed with painting. So, the paint crew seemed like the right choice and it was……I truly enjoyed it.
But, I had to pack a lunch everyday and I really tried to pack items that did not need refrigeration. No Bake Tropical Bites were perfect. Just popped them into a ziplock bag, and off I went. Now, I usually ate them for breakfast, they have oatmeal and that’s breakfast.
They also would make a great snack, or a sweet treat after a big meal. You know, when you have eaten a really great meal, and are stuffed, but just want something a little sweet, No Bake Tropical Bites are just the ticket.
