Date Night

Hi friends!

I didn’t get out during the day today, so I made sure to enjoy the warm weather after work. I went for a long walk on the beach in the park and took a few pictures along the way.

Approaching a hill…

My favorite part of the trail right now… it’s like a canopy of leaves and colors. Although, the pollen is so bad right now that I occasionally have to just shut my eyes because they sting so much!

Pretty in pink…

I stopped at the store to pick up some chopped dates. After seeing Ameena’s date muffins, I knew that I had to make them.

Of course I couldn’t leave the store without some Edy’s frozen tangerine bars. Perfect in the heat!

I followed the recipe exactly, and this is what came out of the oven 20 minutes later.

So delicious that I had two! I liked that the recipe kept things simple- there weren’t gobs of anything in it. Not too much sugar, not too much oil… just right. I like getting a date in each bite for a little bit of sweetness!

Have you seen the movie Date Night? I really want to see it- Tina Fey and Steve Carrell crack me up. Hopefully I’ll see it this weekend!
