A Sunny Spring Saturday!

Wish I could head to the farmer’s market this morning, but I’m giving a talk and then off to work for a little bit before I take off this afternoon for some R&R : )


Any time I know I have to get up and get going, I plan overnight oats. No dishes to do. Nothing to cook but tea water.


In the jar was my usual overnight oats base plus Uncle Sam, Grandma Candy’s Jam and some Wild Squirrel.


Tea, a drink with jam and breaaaaaaaad!


Hope you have big plans for this big day!

On this GSS (that’s a gloomey spring Saturday), I am enjoying skillet oatmeal and then off for a run and then treating myself to a large Starbucks. If it stays gloomey, my closets await. Spring cleaning, here I come!

i always get more done in bad weather! good weather inevitably leads to intense procrastination.

Have a good day kath :]

A bright and sunny morning here! Going to enjoy my breakfast of oats and berries, a cup of green tea and the morning paper! Wish our market was open now…opens in May.

I seriously need to get some overnight oats back in my life! I make them every Monday since I don’t have time for breakfast but I should make them more often!

It’s nice to have breakfast ready when you have to be somewhere early. Always a good idea! Have a great Saturday. :)

Can’t lie- I have so much baby on the brain that I was thinking something else when I saw SSS. I listened to the Pregtastic podcast on Elimination Communication on my run/walk last night so what I was thinking when I read sss……….. On to the topic at hand- Enjoy your Sunny Spring Saturday! :)

I love the detail on your spoon! It looks vintage to me. Very nice indeed. Glad to hear it’s sunny there as well. What a perfect spring day…enjoy!

She needs a touch of silver polish on it. Slightly naggy mother here…

Where did you get the adorable bumblebee mug?


13 KathEats April 14, 2012 at 11:09 am

It was a gift from my dietetic internship school!


14 lynn @ the actor's diet April 14, 2012 at 9:08 am

uh, why is it so gloomy and cold in LA?!?


15 Averie @ Averie Cooks April 14, 2012 at 9:56 am

Enjoy the weather…it’s cold, rainy, windy, and miserable in “sunny” San Diego today.

Gorgeous spoon!


16 Christine (The Raw Project) April 14, 2012 at 9:59 am

The oats looks great, very filling and hearty! Hope you’re having a great day!


17 jojo April 14, 2012 at 10:36 am

I tried overnight oats for the first time the other day, very yummy and so easy!!
I’m going to be doing it more often now that I’ve done it.
Good luck on your speech :D


18 mary @ minutespermile April 14, 2012 at 10:54 am

haha. I will now be singing Sound of Music all day- thank you!


19 Lisa Langenfeld April 14, 2012 at 11:09 am

Good morning!! I love my wild squirrel peanut butter/almond butter pack. I’ve pretty much just been eating them straight from the jar… LOL. The dark chocolate almond butter is definitely my fav!

Your breakfast looks delicious! I just finished making eggs and whole grain toast topped with my wild squirrel cinnamon raisin pb and a banana. Mmmm Mmmmm :) Time to tackle some Saturday fun. I’ve got a half-marathon next weekend so today is my last long-ish run. Hope you have a beautiful day! :)

summery springy super sweet succulent day over here!


21 Chelsea @ Designs on Dinner April 14, 2012 at 11:55 am

That will bring us back to ‘do!’ Enjoy your SSS; there are few things better.


22 kathleen @ the daily crumb April 14, 2012 at 12:19 pm

my big plans are NO plans!! and i could not be more happy about it :)


23 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More April 14, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I’m off to start the process of selling my current / buying a new car! EEEEP!


24 Katie Cummings April 14, 2012 at 2:21 pm

I switched my long run day to this afternoon instead of tomorrow, the weather is just too nice!


25 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count April 14, 2012 at 3:21 pm

LOVE overnight oats. I need to make them this week!


26 Jules @ La Petite Maison Verte April 14, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Such a pretty spoon! I’ve tried the overnight oats but really didn’t care for them at all – no idea why, I love all of the components – just not all mixed together I guess. I wish I did though because what a simple, quick meal for early mornings on the go!


27 jassy @ Healthy Egg April 14, 2012 at 8:09 pm

it’s really nice to eat using pretty utensils right? :)


28 Angel7 April 14, 2012 at 8:41 pm

Today was not a Sunny Spring Saturday at all–it was dreary and rainy :( However, tomorrow afternoon it is supposed to be 70 some degrees–YAY!!! :) Looking forward to the warm weather!
