Finally starting to feel the effects of working full time – in a GOOD way: free weekends!!!! This might be the first time in AGES that I haven’t had work to do on the weekends. I’m caught up on my freelance work, the blog is being written as I type (hee hee) and our house is super clean and organized and ready for sale!
It was nice to watch two episodes of House Hunters and have the only tasks on my agenda include a run, a grocery store trip, a bit of food preparation and a party!
I set my alarm for 6:26 this morning so I’d have plenty of time to digest breakfast before my 11AM run with Emily. Often I sleep late, eat late and then am too sloshy to run before lunch!
Plus 6:26 is a fun time to wake
I opened a new product to review this morning: Bob’s Red Mill’s Apple + Cinnamon + Grains Hot Cereal! This guy came in the massive breakfast package of samples they sent me a while back Bob!
Ingredients include a variety of grains plus dried apples, flax and cinnamon
How bout dem apples!?
For TWO SERVINGS I cooked:
- 1/2 a cup hot cereal
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp chia
- Pinch salt
- Splash vanilla
I did like the subtle apple cinnamony flavor a lot This would be even better with big chunks of apples mixed in.
Honestly it wasn’t all that filling because the volume was less than soupy oats. Hoping it’s one of those quality over quantity things and I still have enough energy and satiety… Next time I might cook oats and mix in 1-2 tbsp of the apple cinnamon hot cereal to fill in the oat gaps.
I think this is a Monster Mash Monster!
Remember that awesome game!?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my college roomie Meredith!!

Speaking of the olden days, I am currently Groovesharkin’ to Enigma’s "Return To Innocence." What a fab song.
Off to run NINE miles. AHHH! Hope my foot holds up!
