My coworker and I were just talking about you yesterday. Ha, sounds funny, but she was telling me how she is convinced that she see’s “Hearts” in just about everything. Soups that she makes, her cereal bowl, in the sink after she brushes her teeth. So anyways, I told her that I have a blog friend who also sees shapes in her coffee everyday! :) I totally thinks this means that you are truly artistic and are able to see the imagery in life. Great characteristic! :)

Have a great day lady!

Yummm, I have never had barney butter before…maybe a new try for me?

I’m impressed you still make stovetop oats when you’re leaving so early — I’d just throw ‘em in the microwave and call it a day. ;)

12 Christy January 13, 2010 at 7:44 am

I really need to try oats on the stove… I’m always using the microwave and have heard SO MANY TIMES that it’s 10x’s better on the stove!

I need to try oats in a jar – throwing out empty jars of nut butter is just unacceptable!

You put me to shame. I can’t even seem to eat breakfast, period (I rather hit the snooze 90837498237 times, apparently)! Time to dust off the ole’ oatmeal jar and shelve all the excuses, methinks.

Reply

39 Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 13, 2010 at 10:03 am

Oats in a jar is THE best breakfast ever! Especially in a Barney Butter jar! I also have an early start on most days but I always take the time to make a good breakfast, starts your day off on the right foot!!

almond butter out the jar! yes!!!!

41 Allison K January 13, 2010 at 10:23 am

So, I made stovetop oats for the first time this morning, on a weekday. Man…they really are so much better than microwaved!

Looks awesome! I’m glad you still make time for breakfast!

When my mornings got early I cut out oats for a while too but I missed them so much!! Totally worth getting out of bed a bit earlier to make them :)

I am always so heartbroken when I see all the beautiful peanut butter clinging to the sides of the empty pb jar. It never occurred to me to put food in the jar as a way to get every last bit. You are a genious.

An eggplant? I’m going with potato.

I bought Barney Butter “for PhillyBoy” muhhahahaah! It was a great way to justify the shipping charge! “It’s a GIFT!” Too bad he can’t find it anywhere. It might just be hiding in my desk drawer for now….

Reply

57 HeatherBakes January 13, 2010 at 11:53 am

I just had OIAJ, too!! The best part is that you can just toss the jar afterward. No dishes :)

58 Patricia @ Run Foodie Run January 13, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I just tried Barney Butter for the first time when my roommate bought it the other week…sooo good! :) I definitely need to try it in oatmeal soon! Happy eating everyone!

OIAJ is such a bittersweet day. I love eating my oats in a jar but at the same time it is sad that the jar is gone. Hmph.

Looks delicious! I made overnight oats last night using the recipe you posted for inspiration and it was soo delicious!!! Definitely going to be making that again soon!
