It’s been a leisurely morning ‘round here. I started with some blog reading in bed, then did 20 minutes of Power Vinyasa Flow #2 and came down for some oatmeal. Yum, yum.
I used my French placemats in honor of NOLA!
Oats were tasty:
- 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup milk, 1/2 cup water
- 1 fig
- 1 tbsp dried raspberries
- 1 tsp brown sugar (for fun)
- 1 tbsp flax
- AgavePlus Granola
- A few blackberries
- Spoonful Jif Natural (still not a fan but I was in the mood for PB)
Chandelier Spring Blend coffee
Since I’ve been having more summery breakfasts – yogurt, smoothies, etc., I realized how this oatmeal/coffee combo really doesn’t make me feel as good and energized as the others. I blame it 90% on the coffee though – oats are pure and innocent! But this did leave me wishing I’d had something fresher.
The New Orleans trip is to celebrate Matt’s brother Andrew’s graduation from Tulane. We’re going with Karen and will be there thru Sunday. I went to NOLA once when I was in high school – 10 years ago!? (I can’t believe I am old enough to say I went somewhere 10 years ago.) I’m excited to eat some Cajun food and perhaps a crawfish or two! And I’m hoping to meet up with Gena too!!
The week after next week, we’re continuing the graduation celebration on a cruise to Bermuda! Which brings me to a….
Call For Photos!
I am not sure of my blogging capabilities on the cruise ship, but I am going to take the week off of formal food dairy blogging. I’ve posted every meal I’ve eaten since September 2007, so I’m going to take this week as my first KERF vacation. You’ll definitely see a few posts from me during that week, and you know I won’t be able to resist sharing some of the food and fun, but I’m not going to post a detailed dairy day-by-day. So to keep you entertained, I am lining up a few guest posts. And I’d like to include some of your favorite eats!
If you’d like to be featured on KERF, please send me a photo of your meal with a paragraph description of what’s in it. Plus your name, city and blog if you have one. Please make sure the photos aren’t blurry or I won’t be able to post them! Send me an email to [email protected] with the subject line: GUEST POST.
Going to pack! Clean! Workout!
