I had to a double take to see if that was cereal or oatmeal! Looks yum as always!

I’m not going to lie–the thought of fall makes me really sad inside. But your mug makes me really happy inside, so it mostly balances out. :)

Oh my gosh I love those steamy mug pictures!! So comforting and cozy! Those are definite fall pictures.

And that really is a beautiful bowl. Don’t you just love when your breakfast is so pretty that you can’t stop taking pictures? Haha. Every angle just looks better than the last :)

That really does look awesome – the heaping spoon of sunflower butter is the best part!

I love the steam photos Kath!!! (LOL, just like everyone else whose comments I’m reading now!) Gorgeous pics this morning! I agree with you that it is beginning to feel a bit fally – NOOOOOOOO! Given the choice, I’d like summer to last year-round. Have a great day at the bakery – glad you’ve got the power back! :)

It was a marvelous morning here, as well. The sun trickled through the tree line and came over the hill as I was driving to work. The nature hippy in my soul nearly peed his pants.

BEAUTIFUL pictures of the steam rising from that gorgeous mug! What a pretty way to start the day :)

SO glad to hear you’re back in business!

Just out of curiosity… have you ever or known anyone who has tried to make sunflower butter?? I attempted a couple weeks ago and it was a massive FAIL.

Totally off the subject…Your Greek Quinoa Salad from a few years ago…will it keep and still be good for a few days do you think? I was planning to make it ahead for a side dish (w/o shrimp) when we go camping. Think it’ll be good after being in the cooler for a day or so? Should I leave anything out and mix it in before serving? Thanks.

Reply

46 KathEats August 16, 2011 at 1:00 pm

I think without the shrimp it should be OK

47 Tighe August 16, 2011 at 10:35 am

This looks like such a delicious and relaxing breakfast! Those are some awesome pictures, Rudi’s likes the twist of adding sunflower butter to your morning mix!

Thanks for sharing, showed this to everyone in the Rudi’s office and it definitely made everyone’s day a little brighter!

Just wanted to drop in and say I bought a jar of sunflower butter today and love it. I never would have strayed from peanut butter, but you make sun butter look so good!

The thought of fall makes me sad, since it means school is starting back up, but I do love fall weather- so perfect for running!

Fall is my favorite! I’m in Alabama and the weather has been really nice the last couple days. A treat after the humid summer we’ve had. Enjoy!

Don’t talk about fall to me please (yet). I’m a teacher, and right now to me, fall is a 4 letter word. I don’t like to think about fall until at least after my birthday (Thursday). On the upside, oatmeal looks great! ;)

Your oatmeal always looks SOOO yummy, that even when I’m not hungry I want some :)
Have a wonderful day!

Glad your internet is back at the bakery! I won’t believe it’s fall until there is lots of pumpkin in your oats. :)

I was dreaming about a trip out to Carter Mountain for apple and pumpkin picking the other day. Must have been the rain and the cooler mornings!

Why don’t my oatmeal bowls ever look as pretty as yours? The nut butter in the middle would be the last thing I’d eat out of there. Best for last!

Fall mornings are the best! And I’m SO glad you have your internet back – right after college, I worked at a shoe store and one day our internet went down..it was a nightmare! Everything had to be either done manually, or not at all…ugh, I feel you!

67 katie @KatieDid August 16, 2011 at 12:08 pm

I noticed the hexagon lens flare in those coffee cup pictures, and I just staretd using the 35mm lens as well and love the cool flares it gives off. I’ve read that its ‘technically’ not good photography but I could care less because I love the artsy vibe it gives to photos. I can just feel and practically breathe that crisp autumn morning air straight through your pictures!

I’m excited/sad about the fall weather coming along. Part of me feels it’s too early (give me the beach!) The other part of me is excited for new fall flavors and fun.

These pictures SCREAM fall, which is making me excited…love the steamy mug shots! :D
