A New New Year’s Tradition – Opening the Good Things Jar

No comments:

I know, I know…  To quote myself, New Year’s is so last week!  But this was fun, and I think, worth blogging about!
Having seen the idea on Pinterest, last year I decided it would be fun to start a Good Things jar.  For anyone who hasn’t seen this, it’s a jar that you set up; we kept ours handy on the kitchen counter.  As you go through the year, you write down all the good things, big or small, that happen on a piece of paper.  The paper is folded and put in the jar, with the jar to be opened and all the notes read on New Year’s Eve.

(Fit) Friday Food - Healthy 'Banoffee'!

No comments:
Donna's Healthy Banoffee dessert.


Happy New Year everybody!

Before I get too far into this post, I want to make it quite clear - Martha Stewart has nothing to worry about!!  As anyone who knows me can attest, I cook when I have to, and the odd other, rare occasion. 

However, when I came up with this idea for a healthy New Year's Day dessert all by myself, and it turned out so well, I thought I would share.  There is no cooking involved, and it took less than five minutes to put together!  There is no recipe, merely assemblage!


I put caramel-flavoured Greek yogurt in the bottom of each dish.  I then layered sliced banana over that, topping it all with a couple of dollops of vanilla Greek yogurt.  The 'garnish' was a square of dark chocolate with salted caramel.  Easy-peasy!  And satisfying enough for Hubby's sweet tooth, as dessert. 

Bonus: you could also eat this as breakfast (maybe without the chocolate...?) if you wanted!

Try it and let me know what you think!

Cheers,

Donna
