Home Alone

December 26, 2009

This morning is a bit like the departure in Home Alone when the whole family is running around. We decided to post pone our run until after our arrival on Bald Head to help de-complicate the morning.

In order to cut out more morning chaos I made overnight oats so I wouldn’t have to dirty a pot (or spare me the possibility of making oatmeal in the microwave ;) )

Last night:

  • 1/3 cup instant oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 container Banana Cream Pie yogurt (the aspartame kind :( )
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch salt

This morning:

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 Probar crumbles
  • Skippy Natural

merry christmas kath…beautiful breakfast as always!

Hey, nothing wrong with oats in the microwave, you just have to get the technique right. The key is more liquid and to soak them overnight.

Anyway, travel safe!

Skippy & Yoplait? You poor, poor thing :)

14 Mae December 26, 2009 at 11:42 am

Have a nice trip and a good run once you get there!
I love seeing how you eat when out of your own house becuase it gives me ideas of what to do for food while traveling. Have a merry December 26th!! :D


15 Susan December 26, 2009 at 12:01 pm

Haha, love the Home Alone reference ;) One of my fave Christmas movies! I find those yoplait yogurts kinda creepy. I had an apple crumble one once, and it tasted just like the real thing. Except… no apples…or yummy crumble bits. Too weird for my tastebuds!


16 Karla December 26, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Have a safe trip!!
Your oats looks tasty! I’ve still to try overnight oats!


17 Kailey December 26, 2009 at 12:19 pm

20 Tara December 26, 2009 at 12:42 pm

21 Christy December 26, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Purrrrty yogurt bowl :D


22 Ashley December 26, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Skippy Natural pnut butter is SO good! Super creamy + thick. Enjoy your trip!


23 Emily Eats and Exercises December 26, 2009 at 1:24 pm

I still have yet to make overnight oats. I just like something to warm me up – I don’t know if I will like cold oats. I’m always so impressed about how controlled you are about your peanut butter. I don’t always have so much control around PB… Have a great trip and a wonderful run.


24 Carol December 26, 2009 at 3:03 pm

Wow, that looks amazing. At first I thought that was a bowl of ice cream. YUM! But it looks not only yummy but is also healthy. Two thumbs up. Thanks for sharing the recipe.


25 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) December 26, 2009 at 3:14 pm

Aww…I’ve been looking back over your Christmas-y posts, and everything looks beautiful. So glad you’ve been having a blast with the family. :D

Safe travels home!

28 La December 26, 2009 at 5:43 pm

Gosh, you guys are go go go right now! Drive safely!


29 Maria (realfitmama) December 26, 2009 at 5:59 pm

OMG!! Home Alone was on repeat ALL DAY yesterday, but I can’t remember which channel. I think we saw parts of at least 3 times! I don’t know if it’s the angle of the picture, but that looks like the smallest bowl of oats I have ever seen. Maybe my oat bowls have been too big?!?! Happy Travels…


30 Carolyn December 26, 2009 at 7:46 pm

My oats are almost always made in the microwave. I am NOT a morning person and I rarely have time for the real thing.


31 Jenny December 26, 2009 at 7:49 pm

haha yikes, the departure in Home Alone is definitely crazy. Overnight oats are what I would have done too! Hope travels were smooth today!


32 Paige (Running Around Normal) December 26, 2009 at 9:02 pm

Hope you have safe traveling today!


33 Joelle (The Pancake Girl) December 26, 2009 at 9:24 pm

Banana cream pie yogurt?! That sounds like a dream!
