My afternoon snack:

My second afternoon snack (I don`t think I really like these…):

This afternoon was spent getting organized for tomorrow`s big night of Relaying…

- groceries for sammiches for team

- Bulk Barn for midnight treats for team

- make Trail Mix Oatmeal Bars for team

- laundry

- lay out camping gear (chair, lantern, sleeping bag, small pillow, tent)

- make sammiches ---  tomorrow

- pack overnight bag --- tomorrow

(extra pants, shirt, socks, shoes, sweater, hairbrush, towel, face wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, water bottle, travel cup, umbrella, gloves, flashlight, bug spray…)

Sorry…I guess this just became my packing list!

FH had a big lunch and didn`t care if I made anything for dinner, so after I went to the grocery store I just made myself a sammich and salad.

Tuna sammich with baby spinach on sunflower flax bread:

Served with a simple tomato & basil salad, dressed with just olive oil, fresh ground pepper, and fresh ground sea salt.  Fresh & delicious.

Then I baked up a batch of Tina`s Oatmeal Bars but made an extreme version which I`m calling Trail Mix Oatmeal Bars.  Loaded them up with raisins, mini choco chips, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, hulled hemp seeds, and coconut.

I just HAD to try one for my evening snack…crumbled up with sliced strawberries and light coconut milk (I won`t do that with the coconut milk again…it`s not very tasty on it`s own).

And now off to bed for a good night`s sleep since I`m going to be up for 24 hours tomorrow!  (the donations are still coming in…weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!)

Jaime - did you measure out the extra ingrediants you added to the trail mix bars? I'm going to make a batch of those today from the Carrots N Cake recipe and wanted to put all the stuff you did as well! J loved them which doesn't happen often when there's all that healthy stuff ;)
