I will be blogging from a hotel room this weekend.
Let me give you a tour ...
Nothing special, but the hotel itself (the Westin) is quite nice.
We are in Calgary for the hubby's 1/2 Ironman race.
Yesterday before we left I made him some granola bars to help fuel over the weekend. I got the idea from Simply Life. Gina made chewy cherry almond bars. I took the base idea, and switched it up a bit to use ingredients that we had on hand.
Adapted from: Simply Life
1 2/3 cup quick oats
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups add ins (I used dried apricot, chia seeds, hemp seeds and pecans)
1/3 cup PB
1 tsp vanilla
6 T melted butter
1 T water
Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients and add to dry. Press into a square pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake 30 minutes. Allow to cool (in fridge even) completely before cutting into pieces.
This evening we ate supper at a restaurant in Calgary called Pulcinella. It is an authentic Napolenta pizza restaurant. We shared the calamari, and then tried the pepperoni and mushroom pizzas.
Tomorrow we are going to a street fair, and then on Sunday the hubby races.
What are you up to this weekend? Is it a long weekend for you?
