Susan B. Anthony came over for breakfast
We discussed all the wonderful things about being a modern woman. Also what Lucy Stone was really like, public speaking tips, keeping last names, temperance, reproductive rights and of course, suffrage. She’s a pretty cool gal!
And she really enjoyed overnight oats! She wished things like chia seeds had been available in her time. They were her favorite part.
1/3 cup oats, yogurt, chia seeds, salt, cinnamon, banana, milk = overnight
Blueberries, Cville Cluster + a spoon of sunflower butter = toppings
Breakfast was served with chai tea for two. But Susan did not care for it – she prefers English Breakfast
Headed to the bakery!
Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says
Well here there Susan! I hope you enjoyed those blueberries!!
Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says
oops— haven’t had enough coffee today. **Well hey there Susan is what I meant to say.
Very cute!! Your breakfast looks so good, especially in the shot where the chia seeds are sprinkled all throughout the jar. 🙂 Have a great day!!
Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table says
Lucy Stone is my hero! 🙂
Sylvia @ My Attempt at Balanced Living says
Adorable breakfast 😀 Will she be teaching the bears any history?
I loved this! What a lovely breakfast conversation. And your breakfast itself looks perfect for a summer morning.
Holly @ The Runny Egg says
Hi Susan B!
Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles says
The bears and the doll friends? I assume so!!! 🙂
Like the ‘for women’ mug even more than the doll though!
Cait's Plate says
Haha – I loved this. Susan B knows what she’s talking about with those chia seeds – they really are the best part 🙂
Rock that “Votes For Women” mug 🙂
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
Ooh the bloobs look delicious! Susan’s got good taste!
I really like the “Votes for Women” cup. But now that I know you have a Susan B. Anthony doll…I’m a little envious. 🙂 What an incredible lady she was!
Very funny – what a great way to start the morning. I think I hear “I am woman, hear me roar” playing in the background. 🙂
I have a question for you about chia seeds – you always seem to add them to your oats, and also to other things as well. I’ve noticed that many other blogs that I read also feature chia seeds in so many recipes. What exactly are the health benefits of eating chia seeds? I’m just wondering if their nutritional merits (which I’m presuming they have, or you would not be eating them) outweigh the added cost. I’ve been making your overnight oats, but haven’t yet purchased chia seeds. I really feel like I’ve learned a lot about healthier eating from reading your blog, and I appreciate that you take the time to answer questions. 🙂
Baking N Books says
Hey Patricia, I’m new to the “seeds” as well – they are nutrient rich and high in dietary fiber. As well – they have a “bulking” effect – similar to flaxseed – so they can be used to make doughs and stuff thicker. Kind of like how people would you a “flax egg” instead of an egg to act as a binder in bringing ingredients together when baking or whatever. Some people add them to their smoothies in place of xanthan or guar gums to create a thickening effect.
Just my 2 cents.
Baking N Books says
Thats *use – not “you”. Is it the weekend yet?
I eat chia seeds for their texture – I just love the gelled/furry/thick texture they give to things. The nutrients are just a bonus. If they didn’t have the texture, I’d probably only use them every now and then like I do flax.
lynn @ the actor's diet says
susan b. cool
one of my majors in college was women’s studies; it’s sad how many strong ladies i know today who think of “feminism” as another “f word.” i love that you incorporate these politics into your daily posts without shoving an agenda down your readers’ throats 🙂
Lisa @ Sunny Seed Stories says
Hahaha love it! Where did you get her?
Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me says
I tried so hard to get on the overnight oats train but I just don’t love it. I can’t take the coldness. I need them hot! To each their own! 🙂
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
haha, where did you get her?
The dolls were put out by Hallmark about thirty or so years ago–they did about ten historic figures.
YAY for the Lucy Stone shout-out. I never felt like she got the attention she deserved. I adore that tea towel! Where did you find it?
Kate @ NaturaStride says
Adorable – have a fun day!
Bee Goes Bananas says
I love your jars! They’re so creative!
Cute post! 🙂
I have been eating a lot of yogurt for breakfast topped with berries and granola because it has been so warm here in Northern Texas! But as soon as it begins to cool down I will most definilty have to try to add berries to my warm winter morning oats! This combination sounds delicious! 🙂
Joyce @ Jranola Joyce says
A wonderful breakfast time!
cute post, kath! 🙂
Loving the breakfast, but miss the bears! Can they come to breakfast soon?!
So cute – this just brought such an oversized smile to my face! Girl powa!
Where did you get that doll? She’s pretty neat. I live in Rochester, NY where Susie B. and Freddy D. (Frederick Douglas) are both buried – at the Mt. Hope Cemetery.
Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance says
That good old Susan– she knows how to have such a good time 😉
Cat @Breakfast to Bed says
Nothing says suffragette like oats.
Claire @ Live and Love to Eat says
Too cute and patriotic for words.
Katie @ RaisinsandApples says
love a good cup of chai in the morning!
Margo @ peanut butter trees says
Love that Susan B!
Cute suffragette linens! I love it! 🙂
Lol – this post is hilarious and cute!
Aine @ Something to Chew Over says
Haha! 🙂 Where did you get her?
kaila @ healthy helper! says
I dressed up as Susan B Anthony for a project in middle school!
Kate (What Kate is Cooking) says
Cute! I love the little bit of history with breakfast 🙂
Kristen @ Change of Pace says
Do you leave the banana overnight too? I haven’t done that one yet because I’m scared it will turn brown and mushy….
Yup! It’s all mush in there anyways
Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy says
Your overnight oats always look so good!
Laura @ Cookies vs. Carrots says
What a patriotic breakfast 🙂
Jackie @ That Deep Breath says
Love your cup! I really need to try chia seeds
Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey says
Love it all… the tea towel, mug, Susan, Lucy… and Kath!
Proud to be a feminist. 🙂
Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn says
Sue B is from Rochacha, I’ve even been to her house, she’s pretty chill! Ahah she would get along soooo well with the bears <3
LOL, you crack me up. Thank you for making my slow Wednesday morning a little bit better.
This is adorable!
What are your thoughts on the fact that your current last name still hints at a patrilineal line?
Ehhhh, since I was born to my mom with her last name of Younger, I feel 50/50 mom and dad and not patrilineal in identity. But of course I do wish it were all equal just for the sake of women who felt pressure to change their name for society’s sake.
Interesting perspective – how would that line of thought apply to any of your kiddos?
Our kids will be hyphenated – half me, half him, so equal.
You made me laugh! Thanks
J3nn(Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
Don’t feel bad Susan, my husband just discovered chia seeds too and we have had them in the house for a couple of years now. He’s eating up my supply, maybe I should have kept them a secret a little longer. 🙂
Maria @ Beautiful Busy Bee says
Susan. I did a project on you years ago in second grade remember? No? Glad you enjoyed your oats!!! 🙂
Susan is from my mom, my blog staging assistant 🙂
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes says
Love having company when eating my breakfast! the quiet ones are the best haha 🙂
Good to know that Susan’s a fan of overnight oats 🙂
Haha, love the way you wrote this one! So cute.
I wonder what the people of way back then would think of modern technology, and the wonderful foods that we have–that they did not have available to them–at our fingertips.
Katherina @ Zephyr Runs says
Love it! 😛
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
It must have been nice to have some company for breakfast! 😀
