Breakfast with my Friends
Hello KERF fans! I’m Kath’s friend Nate. I’ve got a blog if you want to go check it out sometime. Welcome to my breakfast, and thanks for stopping by.
I was feeling like oats this morning., so I went to my magic cabinet
And then I grabbed some oats and topping goodness
Yes, we have an entire cabinet devoted just to my oatmeal stash. I did pick a cabinet that Kate can’t reach, so it’s a good way for me to keep her away from my Barney Butter and other obscure nut butters.
Here’s the finished product
- · ½ Cup Each of Old Bob’s Rolled Oats, Water, and Skim Milk
- · ½ super ripe banana
- · Spoonful of Brown Sugar
- · 17 Butterscotch Chips
- · 18 Toffee Sprinkles
- · 33 flakes of Cocoanut
- · Big spoonful of Barney Butter
Please note that I mix my toppings into the oatmeal. Despite what Kath says, this is the way to go.
We had our usual house guests over for breakfast. Matt and Meredith didn’t want any oats
My daily ritual includes rattling my spoon when I’m finished with my oats. This alerts Gilbert (who is still up in bed) that it is time for him to come down and lick the bowl
I’m pretty sure that he’d just stay up in bed all day if I didn’t eat my oats.
Kate was not interested in a morning photo, but she used her Juicing Monster
And used whatever this stuff is
And somehow it ended up looking like this
So that was breakfast. Gilbert and I said goodbye to Kate, Matt, and Meredith and got started on our day at home. I work from home, so we do lots of male bonding during the day.
See you all after lunch.
Hi Everyone. Welcome back. After breakfast, Gilbert and I went for our mile walk on the greenway.
Then we came home. Gilbert had some water, and I had some garbage water
Don’t hate. I know it’s not the made from the best stuff on earth, but I love my sweet nectar. I have recently cut my consumption from 48 oz/day to 24 oz/day, so that’s something, I guess.
Lunch was pretty boring. I thought I should do something fancy since I’m posting on KERF, but that’s not really my style, and I wanted to give you a realistic day in the life. So lunch came in this box by way of the freezer
3.5 minutes later we were left with this
Sorry that my ziti isn’t very photogenic. These six points of goodness should keep me full until dinner. I have a long history with Weight Watchers and their red boxes. I hold multiple degrees from WWU (Weight Watchers University) – having gone from fatty to lifetime member and back a couple of times (probably not something to be proud of). I could fill a scrapbook with all of my WWU flare (ribbons, pins, booklets, etc). So lunch with the little red box is sort of a trip down memory lane for me.
Enough about that. My friend Martha joined us for lunch. I think she was making cupcakes
After lunch settled (and Martha said goodbye for the day) I went for a run on the greenway. Here are the stats:
- · Distance – 4 Miles
- · Pace – Really Slow
- · Music – Mostly Taylor Swift, but also a little old Jay Z and new Eminem
- · My Singing – Loud and Really Bad
This concludes my lunch post. Sorry…I’m sure that a frozen meal and Diet Mountain Dew isn’t what you’re looking for on KERF. I’ll try to make up for it with dinner.
Dinner: Traditional Gender Roles
Hi Everyone. Thanks for coming back to share dinner with me. I have to admit, Kate and I were initially going to go out to dinner for this post. We actually went out to a restaurant last night to practice being food bloggers – you know taking pictures of menus and meals and stuff. I took two pictures and felt like a crazy person. I don’t know how these full-time food bloggers do it. Everyone was staring at me and it just felt weird. So we decided to have dinner at home instead.
We went all Revolutionary Road and stuck to our traditional gender roles…Man cook meat on grill, woman make salad in kitchen.
Here’s my grilling style. I stand outside and drink beer while the grill does most of the work.
While I was grilling, Kate made the salad and sweet potatoes in the kitchen. She also had some hippie little kid cereal as an appetizer
It’s called “EnviroKidz Organic Peanut Butter Panda Puffs.” They spell Kidz with a z because the EnviroKidz are from the streets, yo.
And here’s the salad
We decided to open a bottle of St. Supery’s 2006 Syrah
I found it to be a vibrant wine with deep red and purple hues and elegant aromas of ripe sweet berries with a hint of toast. Well, not really, but that’s what the bottle says. I give it two thumbs up.
Here’s my plate
I was well on my way to finishing that large slab of meat when Kate said:
So are you going to eat that whole steak or are you going to save some of it?
This made me really self conscious, so I decided to save about a quarter of this piece of cow. It will probably go in a salad for lunch tomorrow. I absolutely could’ve housed this with dinner, but I’m sort of glad that I didn’t.
Matt stopped by earlier to say hello to me and Gil and he dropped off a Great Harvest Turtle Bar. I ate about half of this. Then I helped Kate with her half. It was as good as it looks.
So that’s a day in the life of me and my food. The rest of our evening will probably include watching The Real Housewives and reading a bunch of food blogs. Thanks for reading, and have a great night! Oh, and stop by and say hi on my blog if you get bored sometime.
