Good morning!

IMG_6707-2Blog

Matt requested oats again – yesterday’s must have been good!

IMG_6710-2BlogIMG_6701-2Blog

Coach’s oats with banana, chia seeds, cottage cheese stirred in at the end – plus Carpe Donut! They’re locally made, cider, organic donuts and made a fun addition to the mix.

Rooibos tea

Rain’s on the way and likely will last all week – better get outside while we can!

It was odd to wake up to a house without artwork and near-empty cabinets – for the first time since we went under contract, this move seems real. More packing to do!

a cakey donut sounds like an amazing topping!

Good luck with the move! I always think its good when it starts to not feel like home anymore since it makes it easier/happier to look forward to moving to the new house!

I rarely, if ever, crave doughnuts—but this post put me in doughnut-craving mode big time. Yum.

Carpe Donut! Dang, now why didn’t I come up with that name?

25 Suzanne September 5, 2011 at 10:22 am

Totally off-topic, but I saw another shirt that I thought you’d like. It’s on sale right now too, $10.

What gorgeous pottery! It always makes a meal better when it’s in something pretty.

28 Molly @ RDexposed September 5, 2011 at 10:30 am

Fall just asks for oatmeal each morning! I think Folgers is wrong…oatmeal is the best part of waking up!

29 Cait's Plate September 5, 2011 at 10:41 am

I love that you added one of those doughnuts right in. I need to do that with cider doughnuts this Fall!!

So i’m guessing your new house is being painted right now?? The move is this week, right? Exciting to start something new!

32 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance September 5, 2011 at 10:48 am

I saw Coach’s oats at Costco the other day and was SO excited! I didn’t buy them but after finding bugs in my Quaker oats this morning, I might just reconsider that decision

Ack!!

34 Cait @ Beyond Bananas September 5, 2011 at 10:55 am

Enjoy your day off and pack, pack away! Packing and clearing everything up always makes it real, huh!?

Donuts on oats = yummy-ness!

The sky is filled with some dark clouds, so I am thinking that rain is on its way in.

Kath, Talk to me/us about chia seeds. I see you use them all the time, but I am not familiar with them. Are you just throwing them in whole? Where do those of us far away from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods find them?

Reply

38 KathEats September 5, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Yep, I throw them in whole. I love their texture, and the dose of protein/fiber is also a bonus. I get mine from Chiaseedsdirect.com because it’s the cheapest, but you can find them at Whole Foods in the spices section

Reply

39 Cathy September 6, 2011 at 11:52 am

I seen these at WF. Lots of variety. I did not know which one to buy so I left empty handed. They even have chia seeds in a pkg to put in a drink.

40 Katie September 5, 2011 at 11:06 am

The donut sounds amazing and love the addition of it into your oats!

Happy Moving! So excited for you guys! We are moving here too, to PA! So packing has been my life all weekend and today!

Those cider donuts look delicious – I love a good cake donut! ;)

50 Hannah September 5, 2011 at 7:14 pm

Oh my gosh, I was wondering what that soft-and-delicate-sponge-cake-looking adornment was. Donut! Amazing!

Reply

51 Eileen September 5, 2011 at 9:03 pm

Mmm … we go apple picking every fall, and the orchard has cider doughnuts, and they are the BEST. Totally worth saving for once a year … I feel like if I had more than one, they wouldn’t be as special.

Yay the big move is so soon!

Love today’s title- it makes me think of CHRISTMAS!!

Good morning! I made my fist bowl of Kathy style oats this morning! It was delicious! And I got my chia seeds that I ordered in the mail, they are little wonders! I will post pictures of my delicious oatmeal on my blog later today! Thank you for all the wonderful recipes! I also made kale chips last night, my husband had never had kale before and he love them….score! :) and I did too!
