Fluffernutter and Locopops

I am a huge fan of Locopops. I tried them out right after they opened their first store in Durham. Thanks to the awful parking situation at Duke, I saw it when it first opened. Just a quick walk across the street and I had a tasty treat for the ride home. A favorite Friday evening tradition. I subscribe to their mailing list to get updates on their current pop flavors. This week I was really excited that they had a fluffernutter flavored pop. I exclaimed to my husband that we really needed to go right away and get one, but he was not excited at all. Come to find out, he did not even know what a fluffernutter sandwich was. So, we took a quick trip to the grocery store to get marshmallow fluff. It has been years since I had one, and it was the best after dinner dessert I have had in a while. If it has been a while since you had one, you should make one right away.

So, on with the Locopops part of the story, in Raleigh, while killing time, we drove past the Locopops located there. So, in I went for my fluffernutter pop. Unfortunately, they were out, so I got the sesame candy instead. And I think it is my most favorite flavor yet! If you have never been, you must go now. Or at least put it on your list of things to do this summer.


Sunless Kitchens with Breakfast

I have a confession, I have about half a dozen different meals ready to write about, and even have pictures in my camera of them, but I have a sunless kitchen. So every picture I take has this yellow tinge to it, making food very unappetizing. Good news though, I should be moving in the next 2 months to a house with a kitchen with lots of windows. I know I will become a better, more consistent blogger when I don't have to take my plate of food outside so I can get a decent picture of it.

In the mean time, here is my new favorite breakfast. I got the recipe from Ellie Krieger and it can be found here. Here is a reproduction in individual serving sized proportions. Perfect for toting to work to eat on the job, as if I would take the extra time in the morning to eat at home.

Oatmeal Yogurt Parfait
1/4 c skim milk
1/4 c low-fat or nonfat yogurt
1/4 c rolled oats
1/2 T honey
berries (I use frozen blueberries)
Toasted nuts (I use walnuts)

Mix the milk, yogurt, honey and oats together to combine. Add frozen berries to the top and let sit in the fridge overnight. Toast the nuts and toss on top of the berries and enjoy!
