I am on the Design Team at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog and this week’s challenge is Inspired by a Quote. Make sure you visit Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog to submit a project to this week’s challenge. I love this quote from Isaiah. We studied Isaiah in Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) a couple years ago. Next fall we are studying the book of John. BSF is available all over the world. If you’re interested, you should check the BSF website and see if there’s a class near you.
I used the PalsPaperArts sketch challenge to do the lay out of my card.
You can peek inside the card to see I added a strip of the DSP to dress it up.
I used a coordinating stamp from Flowering Fields to make the envelope cute. Flowering Fields is one of the SAB sets which are free with every $50 order until March 31.
Abby made a quadruple batch of protein balls (think healthy cookie dough balls) to take on our Colorado vacation. Well, the protein balls were gone before we got across Nebraska. We brought ingredients with us to make a double batch after we arrived in Colorado and those lasted a couple hours. I thought you might like the recipe since they are so popular at my house. The recipe came from my very good friend, Janene Pollack.
Chocolate Protein Balls
1 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. peanut butter ( I use Trader Joe’s 50% less salt peanuts and smash them in my VitaMix. I don’t add any oil, just
smashed peanuts. I keep my homemade peanut butter in a glass jar on the counter and it’s usually
gone within a week. My kids like it better than store bought peanut butter.)
1/3 c. honey
1/4 c chopped dark chocolate
2 T. flax seeds
2 T. chia seeds
1 T chocolate protein powder or to taste
Stir all ingredients together in a bowl until evenly mixed. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 min. scoop chilled mixture into balls. Keep in refrigerator until serving.
