Chili Cheese Fries

Good morning!  I decided to try a new recipe this weekend: Chili Cheese Fries.  This is not something I normally make, but I thought I'd live a little and be more adventurous.  I used the last of my garden fresh potatoes to make the fries, and then I cheated and used canned turkey chili.  I topped it off with some shredded cheese.  Pictured below is the final result:

Maybe next time I'll try making the chili from scratch.  The homemade fries were delicious!

And don't forget to enter my That's it. Fruit Bars giveaway!  It ends Sept. 30!

Have a great week!

That's it. Fruit Bars Review

I've discovered yet another new product: That’s it. fruit bars!  These bars come in 3 flavors: Apples & Cherries, Apples & Pear, Apples & Apricot.  I was sent all 3 flavors to review for you here.

I love how these bars are all-natural and made from only two fruit ingredients and no preservatives, purees, concentrates, added sugar, GMOs or nuts. They are kosher, vegan-friendly, gluten-free, diabetic-friendly, high-fiber, fat-free and low-calorie :-).  These bars also contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene and 3 grams of fiber per bar.

While these bars aren't exactly cheap, they are affordable at $19.99 for a box of 12 or as low as $1.29/bar when you buy a 1-3 month supply.  While I would normally just buy real fruit, I think these bars are great for road trips or a day out hiking, touring the city, or shopping.  In those cases, real fruit can get bruised, mushy, etc. and these bars provide a great alternative.

Check out my pictures and review below!

Apples & Pears: 10 of 10.  Simple and delicious.  Very sweet with a nice blend of apple and pear.  I liked the chewy texture with chunks of moist, dried pears and apples in a pureed fruit mix. 

Apples & Cherries: 9.5 of 10. Same great texture with the perfect blend of cherry and apple flavors.  My only complaint is that it was a tad too sour for my liking.

Apples & Apricots: 9 of 10. Sweet and a little sour.  The apricot overpowed the apple flavor by a little, but the bar was still moist and had a great texture.

They sound good, don't they?!  Well, if you'd like to try them, stay tuned for a 12-pack giveaway coming up soon!!
