Friends, we recently had our first rainstorm of the summer! As the storm clouds rolled over the mountains, they were mixed with thunder and lightening. It was also Alder’s first experience with rain. We welcomed the rain .. oh, did we ever welcome the rain.

At this moment as I’m writing, there is a rainbow arcing across the gorgeous central Oregon sky. Beautiful!

Looking out at the landscape I love so deeply, I find myself so thankful for seasons. We’ll be saying goodbye to our sweet Abby this week as she heads back to Seattle for college. What a sweet season with my daughter this summer.

My heart is full and I feel so thankful to have such a beautiful girl in my life. I continue to learn from my almost-21-year-old–so mature and full of grace. She teaches me things about beauty, love, and patience. I’m not afraid to admit that I kind of like my daughter! :)

So Abby, off to college you go!

There weren’t many left on the plate, because they’re too easy to keep popping in your mouth!

PS. The last week we transfered Alder (who is crate-trained) to Abby’s room. Giving mommy (me) a break from rising so early (with so much energy), Abby graciously took over.

ENJOY!

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Yield: 24

Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 medium-ripe bananas, sliced
  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter (smooth works, too)
  • 12 oz bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped
  • Sea salt

Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the bananas into 1/4” rounds. Lay half the slices on the lined pan.
  2. Using a spoon, top the banana slices with a dab of peanut butter. Place another slice on top.  Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
  3. Microwave the chocolate in a glass bowl on HIGH for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  4. Remove bites from the freezer and dip/roll (using 2 forks) them into melted chocolate. (Work quickly before the bites start to thaw and get mushy, or the chocolate starts to harden). You can choose to completely cover the banana, or dip partially. Arrange the bites back on baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  6. Immediately return to the freezer. Serve frozen!
