You Can Do That On Television

Morning!

IMG_4951Blog

Yesterday’s bowl of cottage cheese blueberry oats were SO GOOD that I had to have the combo a second day in a row. This time with a teaspoon of Cookie Butter instead of almond.

IMG_4950Blog

Cottage cheese not only gives the oats a subtle cheesy flavor (think cheese danish) but they come out sooo creamy too.

No beverage today so I could focus on the oats.

TV Round UP –

I am now caught up on The Office (pretty good episode), 30 Rock (so-so), Gossip Girl (not what I was expecting – a little bit of a let down) and Glee (EXCELLENT music this week!).

I also watch Selling New York and Selling LA every week. Along with every House Hunters that I haven’t seen. Sounds like a lot huh! But there are so many shows I don’t watch.

I’d love to get back into Survivor (when does a new season start?) and I’ve never seen an episode of LOST but my friend Hilary is going to help me remedy that!

And I can hardly wait for So You Think You Can Dance!

LOVE House Hunters and My First Place.. I rarely find episodes I haven’t seen. I’ve resorted to watching HH International even though I am not a big fan!

The new HH episodes are always on at 10pm :)

Haven’t watched any TV at all this week, besides the News – darn classes! I really want to see this week’s Glee…maybe tonight! :)

I actually teared up multiple times during Glee this week. I feel like they’re back on their game!

Use cottage cheese instead of yogurt, but otherwise keep same equal proportions and mix in cottage cheese in the morning, not the prior night?

6 KathEats January 19, 2012 at 9:52 am

Steve, This was stove-top whipped banana oatmeal, not overnight soaked oats. I stirred the cottage cheese into the hot oats a minute before they were done. But you could definitely sub out the yogurt for CC in overnight oats as well

Same flavor experience (i.e. cheese danish), you think?

Oooh definitely try LOST – you’ll get completely sucked in. I would also suggest New Girl – SO funny!

Yes! Definitely watch LOST! I didn’t start watching it until the final season was on TV, so I was watching dvd’s everyday after work until I went to bed to get caught up! But it was worth it! :)

I so need to go back & watch this show on DVD! I can’t believe I didn’t watch it when it was on…

12 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious January 19, 2012 at 9:50 am

Great looking oats. Funny you mentioned Lost. I was just thinking yesterday, that Lost was the most frustratinging ending show, and if I ever saw it on in reruns, I would NEVER watch it again. I was watching reruns of Vampire Diaries on Netflix, and when I found myself so happy to be watching it again, it reminded me of how I used to love and then hated Lost. Good Luck!

Don’t you hate when you hit submit before you fix your errors… :) Frustrating!

14 Hillary B January 19, 2012 at 11:11 am

I actually agree with you, but I still love Lost! Seasons 1 and 2 are SO GOOD and then it’s like they out-lived their expectations and had to make up a lot of filler to keep going for seasons 3, 4 and 5. I still loved seeing how it wrapped up, though! My dad and I had ongoing theories about it, so it was neat to get some answers!

I used to love LOST! The good thing about watching old shows is that you don’t have to wait week to week to find out what happens next! Then again, you could find yourself watching even more TV ;)

I could (and do) watch House Hunters all freakin’ day and there comes a point where The Mr looks at me like “seriously??” and I turn it off…until he gets interested in something else then flip it back. Now you really have me missing You Can’t Do That On Television. I don’t know…*green slime*

I used to be a very loyal Gleek but sort of lost interest in the plot last season. Having said that, I’ve heard a LOT of good things about the songs in the past couple of episodes so I think I’ll check them out!

Gossip Girl disappointed me as well! Hopefully things will change for the better as the season progresses. And SYTYCD?! I’m jumping back on the bandwagon!

24 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 19, 2012 at 10:05 am

I LOVE Selling New York but they haven’t added any new episodes online! And I love catching up on shows, but then I get so dissapointed when I realize I’ve watched them all and have to wait until next week!

With Netflix we have been able to watch a bunch of old series that we missed when they originally aired. Lost was amazing!

I love cottage cheese in oats- both the warm and overnight varieties! Heck, I love cottage cheese in almost anything.
Ugh- I wasn’t able to watch last week’s 30 Rock last night… I’ll have to try to catch it on Hulu before tonight’s episode. Too bad that videos from any site are blocked at my work- that would be a good time to catch up!

29 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles January 19, 2012 at 10:13 am

I have always been a fan of cottage cheese…loved it as a kid…used to mix Thousand Island Dressing in with it in my salad. Haven’t been in to watching tv as late…to caught up in reading the last of the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. Has anyone seen the movie?

Hi Kath, do you just use Lightroom and not Photoshop? Been thinking of making the switch (I do baby/family photography on the side) but I’m a little scared of having to learn something new. Also, do you use any ‘actions’ for your photos?

Reply

39 KathEats January 19, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I use Lightroom for all of my photo editing and photoshop only if I need to design something or write on words. I used to use Pioneer Woman actions for a while, but Lightroom is significantly better for photo editing

LOST was awesome through the first two seasons. After that, it went downhill. However, it’s totally worth it to watch for the first two seasons!

I love that little yellow cloth. My grandma used to embroider and needlepoint and that reminds me of some of the handmade dish cloths she had from ages ago…like the 1950s! It’s so sweet, I love it.

I also love cookie butter (they’re out for the last month in my area…boo and not expected to-be-restocked date due to supply issues) and love Biscoff too!

56 Life's a Bowl January 19, 2012 at 11:43 am

Love the addition of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt to oats- it gives it such an irresistible thick and creamy consistency! I usually don’t add it till the end though, as a topping, with some crunchies like cereal… Wonder if it gives it any different taste versus cooking it directly into the oats?!

I’ve never gotten into The Office and seem to be watching a lot of trashy reality TV lately- The Real Housewives, The Bachelor… Although, I recently started watching Modern Family [got it on Nextflix] and think it’s hilarious!

OK I will try again-

I didn’t like GG either!! They could have done so much better w/that plot. That “promise” of Blair’s is so stupid!!

Also- did you know that Fox cancelled the SYTYCD results show?? So now they have to do everything in one show per week. Not sure how they are gonna work that but I guess we shall see!

59 KathEats January 19, 2012 at 12:19 pm

REALLY!?!?!?! It was a huuuuuge time commitment. But I guess we didn’t “need” to see the extra group routines and things. They did drag it out a big. I wonder how people will vote though!?

I’m not sure either, Nigel said he was trying to come up with something good! I think they might do the elimination at the beginning of the following week’s show….

62 Kendall January 19, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Like you, I was a bit late to the LOST game and started watching during the Fall. Seasons 1 and 2 (maybe 3) are pretty excellent and I was always rabid to watch the next. I’m halfway through the final season, and I kind of couldn’t care less! I’d definitely recommend it based on the first seasons, but unless you like convoluted story lines, prepare to be a little let down in the end. Maybe I am speaking WAY too soon and the finale will blow me out of the water?

So I have to share a story with you: I’ m a regular reader of your blog, and my boyfriend always laughs when he looks over at my computer and sees my reading up on what you had for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He just doesn’t understand the foodie world! Well, this semester both of us had to start blogs for classes we are in, and when I working on my post last night, I said that it was a little long, but I thought it would work. He turned and said, “You know, whenever I write a blog, I just think to myself WWKD?” I couldn’t figure out what he meant, but burst out laughing when I realized he was saying “What would Kath do?” haha

LOST is amazing! I know some people stopped watching after the first couple seasons but I think the entire series is briliant. I have to say that I’m glad I was watching it while it was on television because the wait between each episode, reading blogs and listening to podcasts was something that made it even better and made us feel like we were part of something.
