Coming Home

“It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you.” – Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay

I made my way to San Diego this weekend and let me tell you it has been really rough. I mean, leaving 20 to 30 degree bone chilling weather, where I was bundled and snuggled up tight, to sit on a patio in sunny Southern California, drinking coffee and enjoying fresh oranges from a tree only 10 feet from my table, gee, it’s tough to handle. I’ll try though, I’m definitely giving it my best shot. Gingered Date Breakfast Bar- Pure and Simple Funny thing when one comes home, the roles of the past sneak back all too easily. I am a competent woman, strong and determined, pushing to succeed in all that I do, but as the youngest of three strong determined women in our family, I begin to blend and start to lose myself a bit.

      Hi Michelle, thanks for stopping in. To answer your question the bars can be frozen, but I’m not sure I’d recommend it. These bars are a little more crumbly than most so I am not that freezing them wouldn’t cause even more crumbling. I believe it is because there is no gluten or eggs holding everything together. Hope that helps. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the great party!
