Happy Monday to you! For all the Canadian folks…. a special Happy Victoria day to you! What a weekend! The weather is above average to say the least ( in the mid 20′s or higher) which is so nice to see. The action packed weekend contained a huge grocery shopping spree in preparation for a big Sunday feast, BBQ clean up for 3 hours on Saturday, Zest and Mrs. Cooking driving a dirt bike, a Sunday family gathering at our house and last but not least a special Kashi delivery on Friday!
So as you know by now, I am a big fan of Kashi products. Whether it is the crackers or bars I rave about, I am sure you have read it before. The kind folks at Kashi contacted me last week and asked if I wanted to try some new samples and of course my response was a toned down version of “Hell Yes”. With that said, I waited patiently and told the whole fam that we were getting a fun parcel.
Here are a few of the shots I took when the parcel arrived on the scene.
I am so excited to try some of the new products because here on Prince Edward Island – I cannot find some of these flavors at the grocery stores. A few of my pre taste favorites have to include:
- Chocolate Pretzel
- Peanut Peanut Butter
- Blackberry Graham
- Both Cereals and Crackers!
Have you ever tried any of these flavors? What is your favorite Kashi bar?
Just because I cannot wait any longer I have to go through and talk to you about the menu from yesterday’s feast. I will feature some of the recipes I created throughout the coming weeks.

I am off to shingle a roof for my aunt. Wish me luck as I am not super handy both with a hammer nor on a ladder. But I heard rumblings there will be homemade biscuits at break so that pretty much sealed the deal. Have a super great Monday
