HOT! HOT! HOT!....Grilled Cheese Anyone?

Hi, I know..I know...are you crazy, WHO eats grilled cheese in the summertime...I do...lol! I went out and picked our first tomato from the garden and I love them on my sammie. I also made this gluten free bread yesterday....so good! Come on......just try it...you might like it...ha!



Another photo for you to drool over! Hubby and I don't do so well eating regular cheese, so we use the veggie kind and it works out very well.


We were so excited, also out of our garden came these two lil guys...yummy cucumbers!



Well you all stay cool out there in blog land.....till next time!......

Averie's Banana Oat Cake with Peanut Butter

Happy July to ya all and I hope you had a great 4th! Here is a quick, simple, and easy snack. The recipe comes from Averie....thank you girl! Her blog is here. The recipe goes like this...

Microwave Banana Oat Cakes

(Vegan & GF)
1/2 Banana, mashed
3 Tbsp Dry Whole Rolled Oats
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar (omit or reduce, use white sugar, or use stevia, if desired) (I use one packet of stevia)
1 Tsp Cinnamon (or use pumpkin pie spice)

Optional: 1/2 Tbsp Chia Seeds (or use ground flax, or omit)
Optional: 1 Tbsp Dried Coconut Flakes
Optional: 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder for Chocolate Banana Oat Cakes

Yields 1 oat cake but you can double the above recipe and microwave half the mixture in one bowl, half the mixture in another bowl, for 2 oat cakes

Mash Banana, Combine & Stir All Ingredients

Spray down a clean bowl or dish with cooking spray or nonstick spray.

Transfer the mixture into the sprayed bowl and microwave for 90 seconds.

Remove from the microwave and just wait a minute or two for it to cool and firm up a bit.
And then, it will pop right out.

I smeared peanut butter on mine like Averie did....yum yum!!!

Happy Tuesday! Hugs!
