Hi, Matt blogging here because Kath didn’t have time this morning!  She’s doing some sort of yoga-jamboree today so she had to be out of the house early.  She also wanted to bike there in the amazing Springish weather we’re having, and I accompanied her.  I don’t really know much about the yogafest, but I assume it’s something like this:

Actually, it’s probably closer to this:

The day began with a delicious cup of french press, and a blend of oatmeal and Great Harvest Nine Grain Hot Cereal mix.

Personally, I’m a fan of stirring in all your toppings, but I can see the benefit of leaving them on top when it comes to blogging.  Let’s see, I can detect some peanuts, butterscotch chips, walnuts, and some sorta crumbled up granola bar.  Serve with a gooey spoonful of one of the 10 nut butters we have in our cabinet.

I like adding the nine grain to the oatmeal because it’s just enough to give it an extra nutty taste and a little bit of texture, but you still get the volume of oats.  Nine grain by itself seems a little sparse for breakfast, ‘specially when you have hours of yoga ahead.

I don’t know why this next picture is on the camera because I don’t remember her eating these, but here ya go:

Well, I’m off to brew beer while the wife is out of the house.  Today’s got lots of potential for greatness!

Have fun at your yoga jam Kath! The hair looks really cute. I like how this post is a foreshadowing of the kind of blog entries we will get while you are in Africa. 😛

Haha Matt you’re hilarious! Kath, you’re lucky to have him!!

Hahahaha I Love this post! You two are cute and hilarious!


34 Mom March 7, 2009 at 11:45 am

Hi son-in-law. Make some cool beer. If you guys can spare us a weekend, we’ll come down and taste it.

Oh but maybe it won’t be ready yet? Then we can have some from an older batch. You are turning me into a beer drinker! We had some last night at a cool bar in Greensboro and Cliff wrote down the name for you on a napkin. Then the bartender took the napkin. Happily, he was able to retrieve it from the trash.


35 Meg March 7, 2009 at 11:47 am

Great posing Matt! Kath I hope you have fun!


36 Rose March 7, 2009 at 11:49 am

41 courtney March 7, 2009 at 12:30 pm

42 K March 7, 2009 at 12:42 pm

HYSTERICAL pic of Matt’s yoga pose :) And sweet of him to post your bfast!


50 Amy March 7, 2009 at 3:32 pm

haha love the “nut butters” comment.


51 faith March 7, 2009 at 4:40 pm

so when do the bears get to become “yogi=bears” and play too??


52 Oh She Glows March 7, 2009 at 8:03 pm

Are those dates in that pic at the end? They look HUGE! lol


53 laci March 7, 2009 at 8:07 pm

You guys are the most envyed bloggie couple- livving the “American Dream”, SO sweet! 😀


54 hk March 7, 2009 at 8:50 pm

see matt do yoga…impressive :)

have a great day, both kath and matt! can’t wait to hear about the yoga event !!



55 Mom March 7, 2009 at 9:15 pm

I agree with Faith. I think the bears need to be enrolled in a special yoga class. They could start a trend for teddy bears across the world.


56 Heather March 7, 2009 at 9:50 pm

HAHA! Wow, that post just made my day! HILARIOUS MATT!

Kath, Hope you enjoyed your “yoga-jamboree” as Matt calls it! I can’t wait to hear how it went!


57 Lindsay March 7, 2009 at 10:04 pm

Your breakfasts always look so delicious, I wish that I had the time in the morning to make such delicious breakfasts… during the college semester, I have to be out the door by 7:15am because I have to drive half an hour to campus. What would you recommend I do to have something for breakfast other than granola bars and flavored water??


58 Kath March 7, 2009 at 10:25 pm

I really enjoyed coming home to read this :) Thanks for all of the great comments!

Lindsay ,
This past summer I had to be out the door by 7 so I made my oatmeal in advance in a big pot and just re-heated it in the microwave. It was all the perks of stove-top cooking with the expediency of microwave. I also made smoothies with cooked oats. Yum! Go back to the June 2008 archives for more info.



59 Me March 7, 2009 at 11:06 pm

Ha! Matt needs a guest post more often, this brightened my day!


60 seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) March 9, 2009 at 8:23 am

hahaha ” i don’t know why this picture in on the camera but i guess i remember her eating those”—toooo funny! 😉
