2 JENNA September 17, 2009 at 7:58 am

good luck with your test! :)

some days your long lists make me wish I were in school again….some days being the key words! 😉

Looks like a perfect day for oatmeal!


3 tina September 17, 2009 at 7:59 am

Love your photos!!!!!


4 CaSaundra September 17, 2009 at 8:02 am

I am actually somewhat looking forward to the cooler mornings—time to bring out the yummy hot chocolate&oats of course :-)


5 Pam September 17, 2009 at 8:03 am

Just remember to breathe Kath!

Have fun!


6 Madeline @ Greens and Jeans September 17, 2009 at 8:12 am

You know you have lived in Phoenix too long when you are actually jealous of the fog…


7 Shannon (The Daily Balance) September 17, 2009 at 8:14 am

At least you had your cheerful bowl to add some color!

Good luck cranking out that list — I’m with ya on the busy-factor! Hang in there 😉


8 Karissa September 17, 2009 at 8:17 am

I love that bowl! Is it part of a set? Where did you get it/them?


9 Courtney September 17, 2009 at 8:20 am

Ooooh…I love spooky foggy mornings!! We get good fog out in the country where I live!
Thanks for the reminder that the Office is on, time to set the DVR!!

10 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is September 17, 2009 at 8:27 am

Busy week ahead! Foggy mornings remind me of Halloween. Kath, you use a french press, right? Do you like it better than a regular coffee pot? I am not too familar with them!


11 brandi September 17, 2009 at 8:28 am

yuck, our forecast looks like just yours!

i hope you get everything done today! I love that bowl.


12 Maggie September 17, 2009 at 8:33 am

I love planning! It makes me get so much more done :) Good luck with your list.


13 Julie September 17, 2009 at 8:34 am

I LOVE that bowl!!! So super cute! :) I have to eat most of my meals out of Tupperware at work… not so cute.


14 Leianna September 17, 2009 at 8:34 am

Wow such a busy girl, but so organized! Love the great pictures!


15 kay (eating machine) September 17, 2009 at 8:38 am

it’s super foggy here too-i know because the gmail background shwos it :-)
you’re a busy lady!


16 Elizabeth September 17, 2009 at 8:44 am

Oh Kath, you’re so lucky to get to take a practice RD exam!! I’m being serious. They’re horrible tests, totally weird and random questions covering a huge knowledge base, but at least if you’ve taken a practice exam before you’ll have a better idea of what to expect when the time comes to take it for real!
None of the interns in my program, myself included, had such an opportunity, and I know it would’ve SERIOUSLY decreased our test anxiety!
Best of luck!


17 Kate September 17, 2009 at 8:47 am

Good luck with your long week ahead! Sounds like it’s got some pretty fun stuff in there.

Fog + Fall = Time for Oats!


18 Heather September 17, 2009 at 8:54 am

We woke up to a foggy, dreary morning here in MA as well. Good luck with all your work – sounds like you’ve got it all mapped out pretty well.

I need to try some caco nibs – I bet they would be great in oatmeal! Hopefully the sun peaks through the clouds for you.


19 marla September 17, 2009 at 9:00 am

Sorry this has prob been asked a gazillion times,
but how do you use the date and fig in oatmeal(do you cut it into tiny pieces and then add,in beg or end?
Thanks for your patience with ?’s ;)or if any longtime readers wish to answer :)) thanks too!


20 Deb (Smoothie Girl Eats Too) September 17, 2009 at 9:00 am

I am sooo addicted to Cacao nibs. They are such a great topping on anything- such a wonderful crunch! A bit bitter, but I still love them. Often when i have a chocolate smoothie, I’ll put cacao nibs in at the end for a crunch/chew…MMMMmmm!

Love the fog. Unless I’m driving in it- then I’m paralyzed with FEAR!! ;-D


21 Mara @ What's For Dinner? September 17, 2009 at 9:02 am

Good luck with getting everything done :) I think you and KERF readers would love my giveaway since its $150 of cheese and kitchen gadgets! Check it out!


22 Holly September 17, 2009 at 9:03 am

ahhhhhh busy week – enjoy and remember to take some time off to relax!


23 Jenn (www. ) September 17, 2009 at 9:11 am

Yum, those oats looks like the perfect cloudy day wake-up food. :)

Busy is good! I’d rather be overwhelmed than bored lol.



24 BethT September 17, 2009 at 9:14 am

I seriously LOVE the fog (hence my love for SF!). Sun is overrated. Fog provides the perfect temps for running outside!


25 Whitney @ Lettuce Love September 17, 2009 at 9:21 am

That looks like a big ToDo but planning always helps. I am loving the pictures!


26 Weekly Bite September 17, 2009 at 9:23 am

Good luck on your RD practice exam! Those practice exams come in handy!


27 Dawn September 17, 2009 at 9:26 am

Definitely sounds like a busy week–good luck with everything! I seriously love that bowl you have your oats it, soooo pretty!


28 Megan @ Megzz Wins At Life September 17, 2009 at 9:30 am

30 Valerie (College Girl Eats) September 17, 2009 at 9:53 am

I can’t wait for The Office! You are one busy girl with that schedule, but I’m glad you’ve got it taken care of!


31 Kat (Kat's Daily Plate) September 17, 2009 at 9:59 am

Its getting cold here in NYC, too. Where did summer go?!
Good luck with everything!


32 Pam (Highway to Health) September 17, 2009 at 10:01 am

Busy week! Hang in there!

Warm oats on a icky day are my FAVE!


33 Kristen @ September 17, 2009 at 10:04 am

I think fog/rain sounds cozy. I’m kind of over the heat here in California. Bring on the fall!

As always, your oats look amazing.

Hoorah for The Office!


34 Marisa (Trim The Fat) September 17, 2009 at 10:19 am

Weather isn’t so spectacular here either!

Love the bowl!

Good luck today!


35 Cynthia (It All Changes) September 17, 2009 at 10:24 am

I get depressed looking at forcasts like that. I either like nice sun or thunderstorms to watch out the window.

SOunds like you have a ton on your plate…remember to breathe.


36 Kaye September 17, 2009 at 10:32 am

LOVE that bowl. Good luck with studying for the test!


37 Beth @ DiningAndDishing September 17, 2009 at 10:42 am

oatmeal and coffee on a foggy morning is just perfect!! wish i’d had time to make some today. i guess there are perks to crappy weather sometimes…. :O)


38 Lauren September 17, 2009 at 10:53 am

You take such great photos. The weather is icky here in MD as well. So stinky!


39 Megan September 17, 2009 at 11:36 am

I absolutely love your bowls! Where did you get this one?


40 Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries September 17, 2009 at 11:54 am

I love that bowl. The red really pops with the new cam!


41 AnnQ September 17, 2009 at 12:00 pm

You DO have a lot going on! At least you had good oats and coffee weather! :-)


42 Kim September 17, 2009 at 12:08 pm

I too am jealous of your RD practice exam–I’m taking the real one tomorrow morning and would have loved extra practice during my internship. Lets just hope a few weeks of studying Inman’s will do it for me… Good luck on your practice test, I hope we both pass!


43 Biz September 17, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Wow, that’s a busy schedule! Hope you can squeeze some chillaxing in before next Thursday!


44 Gina September 17, 2009 at 12:11 pm

What a busy week! I hope you do awesome on your test =]
That weather forecast sounds lovely compared to the weather here (it’s HUMID).
Breakfast looked so good!


45 Food Makes Fun Fuel September 17, 2009 at 12:17 pm

Nice breakfast. And I’m soo excited for the office too!


46 lynn (The Actors Diet) September 17, 2009 at 12:17 pm

it’s interesting to see you back on the school schedule again!


47 HeatherBakes September 17, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Wow, busy week!!! Sometimes I miss the whole school “schedule”- but then I remember weeks like that. Sounds like you’ve got it covered, though!

Hope the weather clears up for you. It’s been raining in TX for a solid week. Yucky, but the cooler temps are nice.


48 Kath September 17, 2009 at 1:01 pm

RE. bowl –
Found it at Homegoods a year ago.

Yes and yes! They are awesome. Caitlin ( did a video on how to use one a few weeks ago. I’m overdue for mine!

Cut in tiny pieces and add at beginning!

How cool!!



49 Amari September 17, 2009 at 1:09 pm

Walking study sessions are the best, I love taking my notecards to the treadmill with me for some movement!


50 Jenna September 17, 2009 at 4:11 pm

yummy oats in a cute bowl :)


51 maria September 17, 2009 at 6:09 pm

That oatmeal looks super yummy, but after just eating my own oatmeal I feel so full!!! Good luck with your busy week coming up, and hopefully you can relax soon enough!



52 Lele September 17, 2009 at 10:09 pm

I am so glad you introduced me to the idea of figs in oats, because I made fig oats for breakfast yesterday and they rooooooooocked myyyyyyyyyyyyy woooooooooorld. You are the queen of oatmeal, for sure!


53 Laurel November 24, 2009 at 7:20 pm

Hey, I know this is a new comment on an old post, but I was catching up after a big move :) Also delurking, hi, I’m Laurel. Just wanted to give you a tip to help with the looming RD exam (I just took mine in August): You can check out some websites for free “question of the weeks,” I liked And when the time came for a study guide/review course, I used the one on that website; it was all online and definitely simulated the exam better than some of the other review courses.

Good luck on your internship!
