This post is going to be short and sweet. And when I say sweet, I mean it. I found this recipe for stuffed dates online and I wanted to simplify it (as in really simplify) so I could give it out at work. People loved it at work, so I made it for some guests over the weekend. This could pass as a dessert or appetizer and can be made in 45 minutes. I know this might sound like a lot of time, but you can watch TV or listen to the radio while you are relaxing in the kitchen and making these. It’s calming, really.
What you will need:
Salted and shelled pistachios (a typical 6-ounce bag)
~40-50 large dates (large Medjool dates work best)
~1/4 cup honey
What you will do:
- Chop the pistachios
- Add the honey to the pistachios and mix until the pistachio pieces stick together relatively well (well enough to stuff into the dates)
**NOTE: This is NOT a low FODMAPS recipe
- Pit the dates and stuff them with the honey and pistachio mixture.
Seriously, this recipe is too delicious not to make. You could put these out with a cheese tray, or serve them with some vanilla ice cream. Whatever you do, I don’t care, make this (someone at work told me this was the best thing they had eaten all year)!
And now on to the dreaded new year’s resolution……..
I’ve been writing some posts on my recommendations for new year’s resolutions, for other people (more to come this week and next), but have yet to declare my own. The reason for that is simple; I don’t think you really care. I’ll be honest, I don’t really care what yours are, so I figure no one cares about mine. However, since I still continue to read posts about people’s declarations of new years resolutions, I figure you might continue reading this one, so I’ll go ahead and tell you mine; First, I resolve to do yoga twice a week, and get my arms nice and toned for my September wedding (so far I’ve been doing well with this) and my second resolution is to do a triathlon next year. Remember my biathlon this year? This year I’m going to swim too! Yikes.
There, it’s in writing, now I must do them.
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!
