Big Spoon, Little Fork

August 21, 2012


KERF reader Jordan sent me a darling hand-made baby hat and this peanut butter from my home-city-area of Durham, NC! Peanut + Almond mixed with wildflower honey – it’s wonderful!! So wholesomely simple. From Big Spoon Roasters! Absolutely love the company’s design and website too : )


So I dished out some Big Spoon with my little fork onto some Cville Crunch toast



Smashed banana, Big Spoon, strawberry jam, chia seeds, Cville Cluster and peach on the side.


Tea with extra milk



And a dose of kitty cat!



She wanted some too!


Speaking of PB&J – I SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!! I was reading in bed and got hungry so I had not only a handful of almonds, but a tiny PB&J at 11 last night. I woke up several times throughout the night, but I had no trouble falling back asleep. Wheeeee! Food is the answer.

Busy, busy day today. I’m getting both cars inspected/oil changed and squeezing in a dentist appt and a conference call plus hoping to finish BERF posts through 40 weeks! It’s funny around 20 weeks I felt I was running out of topics and now that we’re on the home stretch, I have more topic ideas than days left!

Yum! That looks like my idea of heaven! Glad to hear you slept! Since you hadn’t posted I thought you had gone in to labour!!


3 KathEats August 21, 2012 at 8:45 am

I feel so bad when I’m late with posts nowadays : )


4 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 21, 2012 at 8:59 am

I thought the same thing!


5 Michelle (Peachy Palate) August 21, 2012 at 9:11 am

Soon you’ll have plenty to keep it will be far from your mind! :)


6 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat August 21, 2012 at 8:49 am

Yay for a full night of sleep!! That’s awesome! I think it’s gotta be one of the best feelings in the world, and I can only imagine how much better it must be when you’re pregnant too! That is one colossal looking piece of toast you’ve got there. I’m going to check out the Big Spoon Roasters site now!

Aww, how nice of them! That is a super cute logo too.

Hurray for a full night’s sleep. Those almonds really seem to do the trick for you most of the time. That reminds me, I need to pick some up tonight for the Mr’s lunches. Thanks for the non-intentional reminder! :)


9 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 21, 2012 at 8:53 am

Yay for getting a good night’s sleep! and that breakfast looks delicious, as usual!


10 Erica { } August 21, 2012 at 8:54 am

Yay for a good nights rest!! Maybe your body is trying to prepare you for impending labor!


11 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat August 21, 2012 at 8:56 am

Very creative (and tasty looking) twist on a simple breakfast!


12 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio August 21, 2012 at 8:57 am

Oh man, what an awesome breakfast!


13 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 21, 2012 at 8:59 am

I love the label on the nut butter… and the fact that your toast looks like a pancake.


14 Amanda @flecksofgreen August 21, 2012 at 9:08 am

I’m glad you slept through the night! –it’s about time you had a good night’s sleep. That toast looks picture perfect :)


15 Laura Lea August 21, 2012 at 9:17 am

I know it’s trite, and I know everyone is probably saying this to you, but seriously, enjoy those full nights of sleep now!
Also, in the 4 years I’ve been reading your blog, I’ve never thought, “I wish Kath would post on …” but, I finally have something i’m hoping you will post about. Your food intake while breastfeeding. In the first few weeks I found myself craving carbs, but I know protein and fat are very important for me to eat.
I was thinking about this and I compared/contrasted my breakfast to yours. I had half an avocado, and three eggs cooked in coconut oil. Don’t get me wrong, yours looks delicious, but I know it would have me hungry in about 30 minutes, especially since I feel like I eat more while breastfeeding.


19 KathEats August 21, 2012 at 9:42 am

It might look like a carb heavy breakfast, but our breads are relatively high in protein. I just can’t do eggs for breakfast. I prefer dairy, nut butters, whole grains to give me energy and stick to more protein-vegetable heavy lunches and dinners. My instinct tells me that breastfeeding won’t change my meals necessarily but will demand lots more snacks and that’s where I’ll have to be careful to get in some quality foods.


20 Allison K August 21, 2012 at 11:04 am

It’s interesting what different people “can do” in regards too food. I for example, loves eggs for breakfast, but can NOT eat them mixed with vegetables. I can eat vegetables adjacent to eggs, but frittatas, or eggs scrambled with veggies makes me want to vom.


21 KathEats August 21, 2012 at 11:05 am

Agree : ) I am shocked by those who can’t do mushy for breakfast!


22 Rachel August 21, 2012 at 9:44 am

This looks so good, I never thought of putting granola on toast :) I’ll be interested on how you introduce Pumpkin to your little guy… my parents did that with me when I was born with our cat Chrissy… she wasn’t all that interested though lol


23 Averie @ Averie Cooks August 21, 2012 at 9:46 am

PB + AB + wildflower honey all in one — DROOL!! Sounds amazing!


24 Ann August 21, 2012 at 10:01 am

Love the presentation of the peach!

And Pumpkin’s little face is soooo precious!


25 Tracy August 21, 2012 at 10:32 am

Love that cat!


26 Nicole August 21, 2012 at 10:57 am

Hey Kath. I know you’ve vacationed in Outerbanks in the past. My family is going there in a few weeks for the first time. Do you have any recommendations on places to see/eat? We’ve got 2 little ones with us too. Also, we are driving there frThanks Norfolk airport, so if you know of any fun spots on the way down too, do share. Thanks!


27 KathEats August 21, 2012 at 11:06 am

You muuuuuust go to Jockey’s Ridge!!!!!!!! One of the coolest places on the planet.

Unfortunately it’s been 10 years since I was on the Outer Banks (so sad! So hard to get to!) so I don’t know any restaurants or other things to do. Hatteras Lighthouse is another fun place to see.


28 Nicole August 21, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Fabulous! Thanks!

36 Christina August 21, 2012 at 2:53 pm

LOL- where is the scorecard for this breakfast?!?!?


37 KathEats August 21, 2012 at 3:35 pm

38 Christina @ The Beautiful Balance August 22, 2012 at 2:28 am

I completely thought your toast was a pancake. Regardless, looks delicious!
