Well, hey there lovers!
I’m going to pretend you’re all my lovers, whether you’re willing or not, since I’m by my lonesome this Valentines day. This is the first V Day that I’ve been single since the inception of this blog. In that time I flew through two relationships… and boy are my arms tired. Buh dum chh!
If you’re wondering why I’m up in the middle of the night posting about Valentines day stuff instead of having dreams about Channing Tatum like every sane single gal, there’s a good reason. I’m sleepless in central Illinois because one of my amazing ex’s is either extremely short sighted, or super masochistic, and decided to send me an email the day before Valentine’s day.
In my last email, I told him not to respond, to forget I existed and to leave me alone. In a bold, kind and genius move he decided to toss that request out of the window, the day before the most romantic holiday on this here planet. What people won’t do for the last word…
While I may sound a bit bitter (I am), I’ve chilled out a bit and am ready to take on this holiday in single lady fashion. What does that mean for me? A day of blogging, doing yoga, reading, watching a movie with Jason Segal in it, and eating a quick fatty vegan desert while trolling the Craigslist personal ads in a half joking, half curious manner.
These take literally 3 minutes to make. So if you get hungry in between your crying jags/sex marathons you can whip up a quick batch and chow down before heading back to your lamenting/nude romantic activities.
Unfortunately, even though I’m such an amazing cook and food blogger, I forgot to measure all of this out so be warned, these are precise guesstimations.
- 1/3 cup of uncooked oats
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup dates
- Small handful of vegan chocolate chips or cacao nibs
- 3 T raw coconut flakes (optional)
- 1/2 t agave (optional)
- mix ingredients together until the mixture isn’t dry or sticky. Add more peanut butter if it’s dry. Add more oats if it’s sticky.
- Roll into 1 inch balls
- Pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes, or skip the fridge and pop them in your mouth.
Alright, it’s time to shake it all off and catch some shuteye. What (aside from babies) are you making this VDay?
