SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED again!! But I’m still going into work. While Charlotte schools have been open for 2 days now, Rowan-Salisbury schools are a huuuuge district with lots of country back roads that are still somewhat snowy + icy. Plus there’s bad fog this morning.
I’m operating on a 2 hour delay this morning 🙂
Since I was up and showered when I got the news, I just continued with my morning per usual. I went to bed at 9PM so I got my 8 hours. And no sense napping after a hot shower when breakfast was calling!
Check out these Soldiers of Coconut
You guys are going to have to invest in this one 🙂 The Cacao Bliss tastes just like chocolate coconut buttercream frosting!!! Part ganache, part coconut butter.
In the summertime, when it’s nice and hot in KERFland, the bliss is the consistency of a thick frosting. Perfect to spread on things. Or lick from the spoon.
In the winter, it hardens up a bit – more like a wax – but a little microwaving (or hot oatmeal!) melts it right back into a thick liquid.
Its best purpose: chocolate cravings 🙂
So today’s breakfast obviously was all about the coconut
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbsp Scottish oats (to fill in the gaps!)
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1 tiny banana, sliced
- Pinch salt
- Splash vanilla at end
- 1 tbsp chia seeds, at beginning
- 1/2 tbsp ground flax (finally restocked!)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin (Libby’s xoxo)
- 2 tbsp coconut milk, stirred in at end (I’ve cooked with it before and find the taste to be more detectable if I stir in at end)
- Crunchy Coconut Granola
- Cacao Bliss, slightly melted in the jar in the microwave to make frosting
- Coconut butter, flaked on and melted in
Quite the ensemble and totally yum!
Coffee coffee!! I almost had tea this morning but I knew you would miss your shape of the day! Please forgive me if I do have tea in the coming weeks 🙂
A meteor??? An alien head?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BECCA!!
Going to get some work done and then make the drive up to Salisbury!
RUNNING with EMILY this afternoon! Woot.
