I don’t have my morning class today so I’ve got a nice relaxing morning to cozy up with until I have to drive down to Winthrop after lunch. The husband is off baking bread and had all of his clothing – including his ski jacket and mask for the 40 minute bike ride there – all laid out last night. He came to tuck me in goodbye sometime around 3am and put the down blanket on me so I woke up toasty warm this morning!
I set the alarm for 6am and had planned on going straight to the gym, but it was cold and dark and hot tea and oatmeal were calling my name, so I went into reverse workout mode. I do prefer to have breakfast first and workout mid-morning when I have the flexibility to do so, but I also think that eating breakfast after a refreshing workout is a priceless feeling, and that feeling alone is worth the trade in of a slower start most days. But not today!
We had one serving of pre-made steel cut oats left from last week so I heated those up for breakfast. (PSA: Oats do keep over 7 days).
Into the bowl:
- 1 serving steel-cut/rolled oat blend made with 2% milk
- 1/4 cup or so of hemp milk for rehydration
- 1/2 a medium banana
- Pumpkin butter blob
- Butter Toffee PB
But the Honey Roasted Cinnamon was calling my name “Katttttttttttttth What about me!?!? You forgot to get me! Just a little taste!?”
So I had to go back for a dip into that jar to finish off the rest of my oats.
You know, I have come to the conclusion that I just don’t like steel cut oats! Well, I like them fine, but compared to old fashioned rolled, they just don’t hold a candle. They are dry and have less starchy substance inbetween each oat that lends creaminess to the whole bowl. I feel like I have some obligation to eat them, but I just don’t think I will buy them anymore after we finished off this canister.
I’ve got a Micro test tomorrow, so that’s on the Agenda for today big time. SO much to memorize in 24 hours!
