Peaceful Easy Feelin’

June 28, 2009

Happy Morning! I love mornings. Everything seems so fresh and peaceful outside (One of the benefits of not having your AC on and being “one” with the outdoors while in your house!)

I managed to sleep from 11 to 8 – too many hours!! When I sleep too much I feel kind of sick and stiff :( But I guess my body demanded it. I woke up having crazy dreams, a sure sign that I overslept.

I stumbled downstairs and put this together:

Pure bliss –

And Matt made me this short iced coffee for dessert

We are off on a biking/running adventure to SouthPark to put a blanket down for the symphony tonight!!! This week is Italian Week, so we’re making a huge batch of gazpacho and bringing bread hunks to dunk in it. And red wineof course!!!

Later gators!

Ah I love mornings, too! Especially Sunday mornings. :) I enjoyed my own big bowl of cereal, fruit, and peanut butter…but I had milk no yogurt. Looks delicious!

I am so a morning person too. But this morning I woke up at 4…a little TOO early if you ask me!

Hope your day is great…looks like a yummy start!

Seriously, you come up with the yummiest looking combos! And the fact that you put them in such cute bowls makes them look even more enjoyable. I need to go get myself some of those pretty bowls. LOL. Have a great day!

Isn’t gazpacho Spanish? :)


5 Sara June 28, 2009 at 9:37 am

hey kath,
gazpacho doesn’t have a “t” — and it’s a classic spanish dish (although i’m sure italians like it too)


6 ellie June 28, 2009 at 9:41 am

Happy Sunday! I always feel groggy/stiff after sleeping too long :( stretching and coffee helps!

What exactly is European yogurt? I eat ‘fromage frais’ a lot because it’s so much cheaper than greek- it tastes the same as Fage and has similar nutritional stats, but is MUCH runnier. I prefer the texture of fage but the cost of fromage frais…

I always have crazy dreams when I oversleep, too. Not fun!


8 Hannah June 28, 2009 at 9:48 am

I have to agree with above posters and burst your bubble – gazpacho is definitely a Spanish dish…

I love our mornings – we live in the “sticks” so there is not a lot of traffic and the sounds of the birds is wonderful to wake up to – especially today because it is so cool – the breeze coming in the house is amazing!

Great idea for the concert to make gazpacho!! Have fun 😀


10 Christie @ Find My Weigh June 28, 2009 at 9:51 am

Enjoy your gazpacho whether it be spanish or italian!

happy sunday!

Yummy breakfast! I want to put cherries in my yogurt but I’m too lazy to pit them!


12 K June 28, 2009 at 9:55 am

I don’t like sleeping in either – it throws me WAY off!! Have fun at Italian night! Don’t forget some caprese salad :)


13 kate June 28, 2009 at 10:25 am

Hi Kath,
What is the font you used for “red wine”?
I know, I’m crazy.


14 ashley, mom of 3 gets healthy June 28, 2009 at 10:28 am

breakfast look delish, they have a park near my house that does the free concerts and I’ve never been. i’m not sure what the kids would think. have fun and enjoy the day!
ps- how hot does it get without a/c? i don’t think i could do it here in South FL


15 Ada June 28, 2009 at 10:37 am

Your breakfast looks so pretty! I am so jealous that you are making gazpacho, that is one of my all time favorite foods :) Here in NYC the price of tomatos is still high, but hopefully soon I’ll be able to make some.


16 Mel June 28, 2009 at 10:40 am

I love that bowl that your breakfast is in!

Lucky you with Italian Week at the symphony, that would be right up my alley.


17 Mrs. Myers @ Eat Move Write June 28, 2009 at 10:44 am

I feel exactly the same way if I sleep too much. When I do, I always wake up like NOOOOOOO. Too much sleep to me is worse than too little. Have a good one. Exercise is a good remedy.


18 Jenn (www. ) June 28, 2009 at 10:59 am

Today is Italian theme day on my menu, too! Being Italian, I naturally gravitate towards things I grew up on. Lots of pasta + bread! 😛 hehe



19 elise June 28, 2009 at 11:21 am

wow. that iced coffee looks so refreshing right now. how come the summer went from MIA to heat overload in 1.375 seconds!?


20 Erica June 28, 2009 at 11:57 am

I hate that too much sleep feeling. I usually find a big cup of tea and a walk do the trick to pull me out of my funk though.


21 Tiffany! Van June 28, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Your breakfast looks amazing.

Your blog introduced me to the food blogging world and inspired me to create my own. Thank you so much! I added you to my blogroll.


22 Katherine June 28, 2009 at 12:45 pm

Love the dessert coffee after breakfast! I had a hot one at the Farmer’s Market…it’s breezy in Vancouver :)


23 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 28, 2009 at 12:51 pm

What a perfect breakfast to start out the day. That almond butter flavor sounds absolutely AMAZING!!!

Have a fun biking/running adventure!!! :)


24 Lynette June 28, 2009 at 1:36 pm

You are always up to something fun – the symphony sounds wonderful – enjoy!


25 semihealthy June 28, 2009 at 1:54 pm

My half italian side CANNOT wait for Italian week! I’m a little too scared to watch the fish preparation video but good on you for doing that!


26 Sheila June 28, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Gazpacho is Spanish and, also, by the way, it would be impossible to make it without onions.
That said, have a great night at the symphony!


27 Kath June 28, 2009 at 2:16 pm

ellie ,
The euro yogurt is definitely running and it much tangier than sour. It’s quite the opposite of greek yogurt, actually.

kate ,
It is just Arial big.

ashley, mom of 3 gets healthy,
Up to the high 90s up there – it’s hot but not as humid as FL.



28 Pam Striker June 28, 2009 at 5:55 pm

Oh, that iced coffee looks really good!


29 Katrina June 28, 2009 at 8:16 pm

THAT breakfast does look and sound divine!


30 Tay June 29, 2009 at 1:47 am

How are those nut butters? Which one is your fave/one you’d recommend? I’m thinking of splurging on them sometime in the future, but not sure on which ones would be most worth it!


31 Kath June 29, 2009 at 9:04 am

Tay ,
The vanilla almond butter is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
