Strawberry Sushi

Happy Friday!

I don’t know about you, but this work week just crawled by.

E Card - I haven't been this excited about a Friday, since last Friday

Not only is it Friday but I have a 3-day weekend on the books and boy, do I ever need it!

I was absolutely exhausted last night after a long day: waking up at 5 am, working out, working a full day, attending 3 hours of class and not arriving home until 10 pm.

But I guess I can’t complain too much.  When I walked in the door, I was pleasantly surprised with an hour-long massage!

Dave’s cousin, Ryan, scheduled a masseuse to give us each an in-home massage as a house-warming gift.  She works for their dealership and gives their customers free neck and shoulder massages while they shop for cars.  Very thoughtful and could NOT have come at a better time. 🙂

This afternoon I had fun creating myself a little snack.

I originally was in the mood for a wrap with peanut butter and banana.  However, I forgot about the “buy one, get one free” huge containers of strawberries I bought and needed to use up, so my snack took a slightly different turn.  And my experiment turned out quite tasty!

Mix together nut butter and yogurt.  Spread mixture over tortilla.  Sprinkle granola and lay sliced strawberries down the middle.

Roll up and cut into slices, if desired.  Enjoy!

Note:  I used Naturally Nutty Butter Toffee Peanut Butter, but any nut butter will do.  It’s not necessary to mix with yogurt, but I find you don’t have to use as much butter and it turns out much creamier this way!

Check back in later this weekend – I’ve got some yummy food in the works and a few recipes coming your way soon!
