I love having company and entertaining (we’ve talked about opening a B&B as a wild future idea before), but I don’t realize how much it wears me out until I am by myself in my house. I sent the padres on their way this morning – but not before I fed them some more oatmeal!!
My dad NEVER eats breakfast. He only does when he goes to a B&B or when brunch is the planned event of the day. He’s just a big lunch + dinner person. But somehow I convinced him to have a bowl of oatmeal this morning! He said he “enjoyed it very much.”
Here’s his half portion of whipped banana oats topped with coconut butter, coconut flakes, flax, raisins, Maple Nut ProBar, and Honey Cinnamon PB –
My bowl was the same, just a bigger portion. I rarely cut back on breakfast on recovery days after a weekend of overeating – but I do try to keep lunch + dinner extra healthy. A day with a simple plain bowl of oats just wouldn’t be exciting.
The husband put leftover whipped cream on his oats and a dollop appeared in my bowl!!
With a half cup of coffee (my dad stole my cup!!) Ah geez, that photo is blurry!
The husband wanted to workout before he went into EarthFare today so we went to the gym together this morning first thing. I got in a sweaty 40 minutes on the ET followed by a heart-pumping (I just typed pumpkin!!) set of weight lifting: biceps, shoulders, pushups, squats, lunges (jumping).
I’ve got a long to-do list and a rainy day ahead of me and am sipping some tea while I start this big Foodservice paper. Andrew is due at the airport later this afternoon and I might be joining him and Karen for lunch, but our plans are up in the air at the moment. His suitcase is here but we don’t know where he is after going out with friends last night!
Hope all of you have a relaxing holiday weekend!
