Energy Balls Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • ⅔ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup ground flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, then refrigerate for 30 minutes so the “dough” is not too soft to roll. Roll into small balls and keep in refrigerator.

Lilies and Tulips

In the dead of winter, it’s nice to remind yourself that one day Spring will be back! What better way than with lilies and tulips.

Lobster Dinner at Home

Our New Years Day family tradition is to start the year off with a delicious meal – lobsters at home. January 1st is actually my Dad’s birthday, and this has always been what he wanted to do to celebrate.

When gathering and celebrating, a charcuterie of meats and cheeses is always a nice way to start.

 

Some tips for eating lobster at home:

  • See if your grocery store will steam the lobsters for you – saves time and you know it will be cooked to perfection.
  • Make sure you have the proper utensils: Kitchen shears, lobster cracker, and seafood fork.
  • Melted butter and a lemon wedge are a great accompaniment to lobster.
  • Have a big bowl on table for discarding the shells, and paper towels on hand for mess.

I served this meal with shrimp cocktail appetizer, as well as sides of mashed potatoes, corn and asparagus. Delicious!
