Current faves...

Recently I have really been enjoying butternut squash!

I sometimes have it plain (seasoned with a little salt) as a side dish:

Or sometimes it gets incorporated into my all time fave meal:

I am also really into refried beans at the moment, I particularly like this brand:

These are 'Mexican style' refried beans and consist of whole and mashed pinto beans, onions, peppers and jalapenos- nice and spicy!

I also like the 'La Preferida' brand of refried beans (available from wholefoods). They do lots of different flavours of these but I like the plain ones best.
I actually quite like eating refried beans on their own as a snack (occasionally even cold- I know I have strange tastes!!)
Another favourite snack of mine is hot cereal mixed with protein powder. I have always used a plain flavour of soya protein powder, but I recently decided to try a chocolate flavour:

I highly recommend this flavour. It is so yummy, there is no way I can go back to the plain flavour!
I love it mixed up with some 'wheat biscuits' and microwaved until nice and mushy (kind of like porridge in texture- sounds and looks gross but tastes really good!). I use this cereal to make my choccie cereal combo:
Before I go, is anyone out there interested in doing a snack bar package exchange? I really love swapping goodies with other bloggers! If anyone is up for it, please let me know by leaving me a comment or sending me an email!
I hope everyone is having a nice Easter weekend!

hehe, I'd love to do a bar exchange but there doesn't seem much point asking to join in this time since we're in the same country!
Butternut squash is wonderful stuff, I usually eat it plain too, but it makes great soup.
