Year End Brex

December 31, 2009

Another delish Marsh Harbor brex! I made some more microwave banana rolled oats for our dreary day topped with fresh berries, granola and some of that freshly ground almond butter from the co-op yesterday.

There’s that almond butter under there!

Coffee. For food + beverage pairing.

Our new inn friend wanted me to put his pastry on the blog as the opposite of real food :)

2009 was a ca-razy year!!!

Highlights

With my dietetic internship, taking (and hopefully passing) the R.D. exam, our move to Charlottesville, another trip to Montana and possibly opening our bakery doors, 2010 is bound to be exciting!!

Your friend’s pastry doesn’t look very filling, but at least there’s some fruit alongside it. I think a doughnut or pastry for breakfast is A-OK every once in awhile. It makes things feel like vacation!
Happy New Year :-)

Wow, you’ve accomplished a lot over the year.

Where are you going in Montana? I’ve been to Helena a couple times and it was a good experience, even though I was there for work.

A great year; that’s one thing I love about blogging…the ability to go back and see what you were doing … a week, month..YEAR..ago (I’m not there yet, but soon enough). The fruit looks delicoous and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My mom always pulls what your inn friend does. “And now here’s what NOT to eat.” She thinks she’s so funny. I think deep down she wants her own blog. She also tries to say “That’s what she said,” but she puts the emphasis on the wrong words, so it always comes out, “That’s what she SAID.” instead of “That’s what SHE said.” It’s very much like Christopher Walken.

hi there! still addicted to your blog! a quick question: why almond butter? is it for taste or for nutrition? have you tried other nut butters (i.e cashew butter)? are almonds healthier than peanuts?

i need all the vicarious nut butter experience i can get because i live in France and all we have here is overpriced Skippy. et ça me fait triste.

It’s all about the taste!

Hi Kath,

I’m a new visitor– Rod Hyson’s wife. Wish I could have been there at The Marsh Harbour. Rod told me what a wonderful and interesting family you all are. I love the photographs— Christmas ones, and all the others. You definitely have a talent. Would love to hear some comments about how you get the photographs— lighting, composition etc. Have a great new year and I look forward to meeting you on Bald Head Island.
Julie

49 Kath December 31, 2009 at 6:32 pm

Hi Julie! Thanks for stopping by. We’ve had such a lovely vacation here at the Inn. Wish we could have met you during our stay. Thanks for the photography compliments – it’s all about the DSLR camera, as much natural light as possible, my Canon 50mm lens (see the Q+A page for more on that). I’d love to give you a lesson in person sometime :)

50 Sara December 31, 2009 at 4:58 pm

The RD exam is not exactly challenging. It is designed to test entry level competence. The fail rate is really low.
