homemade pop tarts

Things just taste better when they are made with love. If you buy pop tarts at the store, sure, they taste like pure sugar, but you sure don’t taste any love in them. So even though it would take less time and energy to simply buy pop tarts at the store, there is much more joy in creating them with your own hands.

I found the recipe for homemade pop tarts here. I made ours with whole wheat flour, and with fillings of jam, cinnamon sugar, or chocolate.

wake up early: make banana bread and bulletin boards

I love mornings. The day is full of possibilities and so much time. The world is still quiet. And for some reason, waking up early on the weekends is way easier than waking up early during the week, probably because of the option of napping at 10am exists.

So I made some banana bread for breakfast. Nothing smells better than baked goods fresh from the oven.

While the bread was cooking, I decided to make some fabric covered bulletin boards. Super easy. Just cut out fabric, warm up the hot glue gun, and put those suckers together. Then we stared at our love notes while we ate warm banana bread.
