Simply Morning

January 19, 2011

No workout today (we needed the sleep!)

No walking (had to check out of hotel and drive)

Just a good ole breakfast enjoyed during morning meeting.


Un-overnight oats that were put together 20 minutes before eating. It works just fine – it’s just not quite as thick and doughy as an overnight soak.


The Mix

  • ~1/2 cup muesli
  • 1 container Siggi’s Vanilla (I prefer plain yogurt for overnight oats)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 mashed banana – super ripe!
  • Crunchy Buckwheat Granola
  • A Biscoff!!


Plus, of course, coffee!


We’ve got a big day of sandwich making ahead – and a road trip up to Missoula after that.

Happy Tuesday? Wednesday?

Biscoff makes up for the fact that they weren’t doughy, right? 😉

Enjoy your day!


2 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 19, 2011 at 10:12 am

Mmmm…Biscoff is a welcome addition to ANY meal!

Happy road-tripping!


3 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 19, 2011 at 10:12 am

I have never tried a Biscoff but judging by your rave reviews they sound like something I need to get my hands on! Enjoy sandwich school! :)


4 Liz @ Tip Top Shape January 19, 2011 at 10:13 am

Your quickly thrown together breakfasts sound better than my planned ones ever do!! You are clearly destined to have a career with food 😀


5 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 19, 2011 at 10:13 am

I wasn’t aware that sandwich making was such a big part of Great Harvest.


6 Kath January 19, 2011 at 10:15 am

It’s not a huge portion, but we’re in Sandwich School this week


7 Christine January 19, 2011 at 10:14 am

It’s Wednesday!

I usually forget to make overnight oats, so I am always surprised at how doughy they ARE….

Have fun!

Sometimes a morning without exercise is just perfect, isn’t it? And breakfast looks delish.


9 Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen January 19, 2011 at 10:17 am

Love much.


10 Trish @I_am_Succeeding January 19, 2011 at 10:20 am

safe travels…oh and yummy looking breakfast.


11 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) January 19, 2011 at 10:20 am

Looks like a tasty way to start the day! Have a great Wednesday!


12 cathyb.@brightbakes January 19, 2011 at 10:21 am

safe travels…and our breakfast looks similar :) Never would’ve thought of a raw oats/yogurt-soaked combo before I started reading KERF!

Really loving your blog Kath. Very entertaining, creative and authentic! I have a question that maybe you or another blogger can answer. How do you get your pictures side by side?


14 Kath January 19, 2011 at 10:40 am

I use Windows Live Writer and format them in there by resizing them down until they fit


15 Amanda January 19, 2011 at 11:44 am

Thanks girl;)


16 Amalfi Girl (EatRunHaveFun.blogspot) January 19, 2011 at 10:22 am

That actually puts me in the mood for crumbling a graham cracker into my oatmeal…


17 Allison K. January 19, 2011 at 10:31 am

Yay! You are going to LOOOOOOVE Missoula!


18 Heather January 19, 2011 at 10:40 am

Enjoy your trip to Missoula!

What a great idea to crumble a cracker into my oatmeal – I need to make granola this weekend to add to my oatmeal in the morning!


19 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 19, 2011 at 10:43 am

How fun is sandwich school? I want to go to sandwich school!


20 Alaina January 19, 2011 at 10:51 am

My days are kind of melding together too. I think it’s Wednesday? :-)

Have fun in Missoula!


21 Michele @ Healthy Cultivations January 19, 2011 at 10:55 am

Hmm, Wednesday it is. I’ve come to LOVE overnight oats and look forward to them. When I first saw them on blogs, I thought it was a bit insane… until I tried it. Now, I prefer them cold to hot.


22 Tine January 19, 2011 at 11:10 am

Lots of biscoffs (speculoos) in Belgium here.
The Lotus Bakeries story started in Belgium. Jummie!


23 Ann @ Day by Day January 19, 2011 at 11:13 am

Oh good another day of sandwich school! Have fun on your trip to Missoula!


24 Hope January 19, 2011 at 11:15 am

I’ve never had a biscoff before. It sounds and looks good. Overnight Oats are always so yummy! Yours always look perfect! Have fun at sandwich school and in Missoula!


25 Krystina January 19, 2011 at 11:27 am

I tried biscoff for the first time on my Delta flight and fell in love!


26 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table January 19, 2011 at 11:28 am

Oddly, I actually like the non-overnight oats. I like a little crunch. :)

And I have sandwich school envy. Haha!


27 Katy (The Singing Runner) January 19, 2011 at 11:29 am

My friend worked in Missoula over the summer! She loved it! 😀


28 Heather (heathers dish) January 19, 2011 at 11:35 am

Sometimes the simplest breakfasts are the best…I think today’s is a prime example :)


29 Bess @ Bess Be Fit January 19, 2011 at 11:36 am

It definitely feels like Tuesday since I didn’t have to work on MLK day….but yay that its hump day! Weekend is just that much closer :)


30 lynn (The Actors Diet) January 19, 2011 at 11:40 am

yeah i had no idea what day today was either!


31 Kiran January 19, 2011 at 11:42 am

Yummy Biscoff! Wondering whether it would taste as good in a pumpkin oatmeal? :)


32 Katie January 19, 2011 at 11:45 am

I always need a crunch in things I eat, especially oats! Love that you crumbled up the biscoff in there!

Have a fun day!


33 Natalia - a side of simple January 19, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Happy…day! I’m thinking biscoff should make a regular appearance at breakfast time. I mean…it is basically a tea cookie…


34 Beth @ DiningAndDishing January 19, 2011 at 12:09 pm

You know you’re having fun when you forget what day of the week it is :).


35 Allie January 19, 2011 at 12:11 pm

Sometimes it is soo nice to take a break from working out and walking a lot to just get going with your day, huh?! Your breakfast looks awesome, especially the warm coffee :) Have a great day today!


36 Maryann January 19, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Have a safe drive! I’m still on winter break and sometimes forget what day it is as well :)


37 [email protected] January 19, 2011 at 12:26 pm

I can’t wait to see more sandwich making photos!! This is so much fun!


38 Rachel @ Grateful Girl Goes Gluten Free January 19, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Your sandwich making is keeping my google reader so interesting!


39 Shannon @A Pinch of Ginger January 19, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Safe travels and enjoy your trip back to Missoula. One of my favorite towns to visit by far :) Was there last summer and was enamored by its charm :)


40 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) January 19, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Mmm…this looks fabulous! I love “un”overnight oats.

Have a fabulous Wednesday, Kath! And happy sandwich making! 😀


41 Namaste Gurl January 19, 2011 at 1:00 pm

At least they were in some what of oat form— and you got your oat fix, of course! :)


42 Justeen @ Blissful Baking January 19, 2011 at 1:10 pm

Mmm I haven’t had overnight oats in a while – the cold weather makes we crave a bowl of hot oats in the morning! But I do love cool, creamy overnight oats once in a while. Maybe I’ll have it for breakfast tomorrow :)


43 kaila @ healthy helper blog! January 19, 2011 at 1:21 pm

Hmmm I love overnight oats….and I love siggis vanilla flavor, its my absolute favorite yogurt ever! Hope you have a great last day and safe roadtrippin’! Looks like Montana was a lot of fun!


44 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) January 19, 2011 at 1:36 pm

Even though I’ve never had a Biscoff, I want to get some if I ever find them. They look great on oatmeal :)


45 [email protected] January 19, 2011 at 1:45 pm

haha Happy Wednesday girl!


46 Sandy January 19, 2011 at 1:57 pm

Love your attitude. It is always so refreshing to read your posts and you never grumble about the conditions or situation but just make the best of everything. Thank you.


47 Amy at TheSceneFromMe January 19, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Some days sleep is just more important that a workout for mental health! Happy Sammy Makin Day!


48 Sam January 19, 2011 at 2:46 pm

I am still cracking up thinking about your mom face…the frowny smile. Hilarious!
Are you still selling KERF shirts? I can’t seem to find them.


49 Kath January 19, 2011 at 2:49 pm

I am! They are here:

They probably need an update!


50 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) January 19, 2011 at 2:56 pm

That looks so good! I bet the Biscoff is out-of-this-world yummy on it!!


51 Anne @ butter and bear January 19, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I have yogurt and granola or muesli every morning for breakfast, but have never thought to put them together the night before. I am definitely going to try that tonight, yours looks yummy!


52 Lisa (bakebikeblog) January 19, 2011 at 4:38 pm

Safe travels!!!


53 ann January 19, 2011 at 5:03 pm

I thought buckwheat had wheat in it but I saw it today in the gluten free section (I am gluten free). I have been wanting to try your buckwheat granoloa and now am so excited to do so.



54 Hannah January 19, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Biscoff… oh how you taunt me!


55 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 19, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Sometimes it’s nice to take an entire day off from physical activity. The rest gives me so much energy for working out the next day!


56 Allison @ Happy Tales January 19, 2011 at 7:47 pm

Your big breakfast bowl of oats look fantastic! And gosh, I know… I can’t believe today is Wednesday…and it’s practically over now! This week is a’flyin’ by!


57 Kate January 19, 2011 at 11:25 pm


I had no clue Great Harvest served sandwiches…there is one just a few miles away and I’ve never been. I went to their site and THEY do have sammiches. Is that a new thing??!
