That sounds just great. Don’t you love weekend mornings that are lounge-y and relaxed? It seems the weeks are so busy, it’s a good time to just hang and enjoy. Love the pants!!

Such a perfect way to start off a Saturday! Haha before I finished reading the post, I was thinking that everyone’s going to comment on the matching PJ pants! Cute! I buy men’s pajama pants sometimes just cause I think they’re more comfortable!

Lol, I’ve always been attracted to the softness of mens pajama pants, but I didn’t want anyone to think I was weird (like my boyfriend)! I never buy them, but I always end up wearing his around the house, I’m glad someone else does this!
Have a great Saturday, Kath :D

My husband and I also have matching pajama pants! We give each other pajamas for Christmas every year and a few years ago he waited until the last minute so all that was left at J.Crew (where he and I both got the pajamas) were men’s so we ended up with the same pants :)

Have a great weekend!

Your guy’s’ semi-matching slippers are pretty much the cutest thing ever. And Michael Scott (meaning Jim Halpart too!!!) and Conan?? Sounds like the perfect morning!

Haha I love the matching PJs. When I was a kid my brother and I would race to wake up first and pick the cartoons for the morning!

That’s funny your pajamas’s, socks, and slipper’s are alike or a least very similar.

I loved Saturday morning cartoons! Except they certainly contributed to my chubby youth as I would sit and watch cartoons for 4-5 hours every saturday morning. Typically after eating pancakes like I did every morning until I was about 16…

Kath,
Thanks to your Neat Home series, I organized my kitchen drawers and put all of those messy cereal boxes on top of my fridge in media boxes on top of my fridge. It looks so much neater. Thanks for the inspiration!

I have had that granola (from Costco right?). Wasn’t my favorite. After making homemade granola with coconut, coconut butter, and tons of nuts, I am pretty much ruined for any other granola/cereal. I keep my (homemade) granola in the fridge to keep it fresh and crunchy.

42 Emily @ Savory and Savage February 5, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Lazy Saturday mornings are the best! And men’s cotton pajamas are for some reason – so much softer than women’s – especially after a bunch of washings. :-)

Saturday morning cartoons, oh the memories! My siblings and I would always get up early because we had to complete a chore before we were allowed to go to my grandma’s and watch (we don’t have tv).

Michael Scott is a pretty good alternative, and might I add a perfect contribution to an “adult” weekend? :)

Lazy mornings are the best! And I think I have those very same slippers, but in green! They are incredibly warm and comfy!!

Steel cut oats in the rice cooker with brown sugar and banana this morning for me!

We’ve got some cinnamon rolls from our local GH for tomorrow :)
I love how each one is so local! Ours sells Michigan map oven mitts-works out nicely for the mitten state :D

I love smoothies in a bowl also! Why mix in the oats into the smoothie instead of scatter it on top? Just wondering!

I love the site, but I was puzzled with the post that featured Vega. I followed the link, and was suspicious when I saw that they did not list the ingredients, but made liberal use of the word natural, which as you know, means nothing in terms of nutrition. Cyanide is natural.

Below is a link to a review that seemed to make sense:

http://www.greendrinkreviews.com/wp/2010/01/10/review-vega-health-optimizer/

Here is part of the review: “Vega is designed differently than most green drinks. It provides a larger than usual amount of protein, which makes it a cross between a protein drink and a green drink. The protein comes from hemp and green pea mostly, but also contains some rice and flax. The last two would be fillers to most people, but they do provide some protein. These ingredients give the mixture a slightly gritty texture, but you can easily overcome that by mixing with a “thick” fruit juice or nectar…… Maca is one of the ingredients I consider to be “average” in terms of benefits-to-bulk ratio (see my list of best, average and worst ingredients here)…. At approximately $4.35 per serving, the formula is a bit on the high side in terms of cost-benefit. The cost per ounce is low at $2.14, but the suggested serving size is larger than normal at over 2 ounces (61g). Flavored and sweetened with Stevia, the taste is something you have to try for yourself.

My question: How can you say this is real food? It sounds like a protein drink just like any other, lots of fillers and inexpensive ingredients which do raise the fiber and protein, but are not quality ingredients.

Reply

65 KathEats February 5, 2011 at 6:07 pm

I never claimed that Vega was 100% whole, real food. But it passes my ingredient list requirements. And it’s also not something I rely on for nutrition – I use it mostly for taste.

Reply

66 Maria February 6, 2011 at 11:23 am

Thanks for the reply. I hope other readers are not confused by the inclusion of this product on your site.

I would use 100% cocoa powder, less expensive and no fillers. Perhaps this would not give exactly the flavor you are looking for, but it seems heathier to me.

Full Disclosure: I have no financial interest in any products, but I have become concerned about how easy it is to misunderstand endorsements. This site seemed so genuine that I wanted clarification. Thank you for doing so.
