A good morning indeed!!!
I have been sleeping like crazy lately – didn’t get up until the 8AM hour again! Maybe I’m still a little on West Coast time? And Matt needed to catch up from his work week, so we didn’t budge for about 9 hours. We had planned to go running first thing, but you know, I am always stiff and hungry when I wake up and whenever I have the option to eat first, exercise second, I always take it. I asked Matt what he wanted to do and his response was: "Oatmeal!" so that’s what we did. We’re planning our run when the big hand gets on the 6 again
Today’s oat varietal was muffin, muffin and more muffin!!
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, pinch salt
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 extra, super ripe banana
- ~the top of a Carrot Raisin Walnut muffin from GH
- Spoonful Plum Jam
- Spoonful Maranatha AB
I always thought cake-y products on oats looked like a gross combo – until I tried it!! Something about the crumbly cake mixed with the creamy oats and the sticky nut butter is pure texture heaven.
Peppermint Creme!! (Hey Charlottteans – "At the Peppermint Forest…(peppermint forest)…..peppermint forest Christ-mas shop!" <— one of the best jingles ever!)
Beautifully photographed in the sunlight….
……but consumed cozily on the couch with some Conan!
We’re meeting some blog readers for lunch and then for dinner – CROCK POT! Excited 🙂 It’s probably gonna be another low-key night, but I am all for it 🙂
[May I please have permission to say it again? My new computer makes blogging SO MUCH EASIER!! What used to take a whole 30-60 seconds to do because the screen would freeze now takes split seconds. Woo. Hoo.]
