Is that a banana in your pocket...


Or are you just happy to see me?

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loaded up and ready to go swimming with a banana in one pocket and an apple in another.

Here's a super easy homemade power bar recipe:

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup honey
1 cup protein powder
3 cups oats

Melt peanut butter and honey in pot. Don't need to bring it to boil -- just warm it up to get things mixed well. Stir in protein powder until well mixed. Remove from heat and then add oats. Mix well and then press mixture into a cookie sheet or loaf pan or whatever you want. Once cool, cut into bars or squares. I like to put mine in the freezer and take out a little square out when I need one. These suckers are awesome and CHEAP and totally bomb-proof to make! :) :)

Enjoy!

Some of you might not know this story. The "are you just happy to see me" line was a result of the Hayes Code in Hollywood, which severely restricted what could be said and shown in movies. However, Mae West in the 19933 film She Done Him Wrong, gave it the famous inflection that had the censors ripping their guts out. Which just goes to show, it isn't what you say, it's how you say it.

Oh, and I think I'll try the recipie today.

That sounds pretty simple, I doubt I'd even manage to eff that up.
