He Made ‘Em –>

March 7, 2012

Thanks to this guy, I enjoyed slowly waking up in bed to the smell of oatmeal!

Matt actually got up to go on a run this morning, and when he returned he asked if I wanted breakfast in bed.

YES PLEASE!!

I didn’t end up enjoying my whipped banana oats in bed, but we did enjoy it together. We used to eat breakfast together every morning back in the day. I miss that!

Whipped banana oats [Matt style, which means no chia and whipped violently] with vanilla, strawberry jam, WF peanut butter and more banana.

He even heated tea water for me! Earl Gray to sip.

You deserve to feel like a queen and what a prince/king/thoughtful husband you have! The Matt-style oats look delicious, even after being violently whipped and chia-less. Hope the rest of your day is as wonderful as its beginning.

Sounds like a keeper! ;)

My hubs isn’t a chia fan either. I always try to sneak some in when making oatmeal for both of us but he noticed every single time.

What a good hubby! Food always tastes better when it’s made by someone else with care. :)

Looks delicious! Especially the bananas.

For some reason I found the idea of Matt violently whipping the oats hysterical! I’m still smiling :)

The whole time I’m yelling, “BREAK DOWN YOU BETA-GLUCANS!!!!!”

13 Kate @ get up and flow March 7, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I laughed at that too! Sounds like a very manly approach to making oatmeal.

Hahaha awesome! Love your sense of humor! I hope you and Kath have an amazing day!

15 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon March 7, 2012 at 8:44 pm

We all know what trouble those beta-glucans can be. Glad you put them in their place!!

haha — “whipped violently”! i love that. glad you enjoyed the fruits of someone else’s labor… in my opinion, food always tastes better that way :)

17 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance March 7, 2012 at 9:08 am

I could get used to that!

Is jelly really the way to go? I’m all about the peanut/almond butter, but jelly seems like a weird texture to add to oatmeal. Guess I’ll give it a go.

19 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries March 7, 2012 at 9:11 am

the jelly gives it a little added sweetness! i enjoy it!

I love it! It melts a little too

21 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 7, 2012 at 9:15 am

Wow, what lovely morning treatment!! All he forgot was a massage and foot rub lol! Breakfast in bed is awesome and I haven’t enjoyed it in far too long. Do you guys whip the oats by hand or with an immersion blender?

Reply

22 KathEats March 7, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Just whipped by hand – just stirred well

28 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl March 7, 2012 at 9:56 am

Awww… that’s cool he made you oatmeal and tea this morn. those oats look yummy. think I will go make me some now minus the jam.

I love when my man brings me hot tea. We do that frequently in the evening. As for the massage, I treated him this weekend with a day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Was truly nice as it was 80 degrees out.

I love this idea of PB and Preserves/Jelly in your oats, I’m going to have to try it!

Reply

30 Sarah @ See Sarah Eat March 7, 2012 at 10:07 am

I love PB&J in my oats, it was seriously one of the best discoveries ever. For oats, at least ;)

34 Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie March 7, 2012 at 10:45 am

Hahah it’s so cute that he made you breakfast. Though I must say, violent whipping of oatmeal is key ;)

35 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning March 7, 2012 at 11:02 am

Can I rent Matt to give my husband lessons? Seriously- I don’t think mine has ever once made me breakfast! And the fact that Matt knows how to cook oats correctly is pretty amazing. Definitely jealous over here! Enjoy!

36 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga March 7, 2012 at 11:07 am

I remember reading your old posts and always wondering how you guys pulled off breakfast together almost every day…well, very sweet memories you will always have at least :)

Reply

37 Jasper Naomi @ crunchylittlebites March 7, 2012 at 11:34 am

my family and I used to eat breakfast together every morning…those days are long gone…paradigm shift is in order, though, I think and my father and his wife just arrived home for a 3-month period after being in Africa for 3 years and I should request family breakfasts again! :D

on the days my hubs doesn’t work, he often brings me coffee in bed, it’s a good way to get me back in there later.
