Finally a normal morning. Okay wait a minute. I have two boys, no morning is normal…lol!!
A good morning, how about that. No rushing around for me today. I was up with the alarm, today is jean day so dressed in no time, and the spare time to really concentrate on breakfast this morning 🙂
I call them my loaded “Thanksgiving Dessert” oats….
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 tbs. ground flax
- 1/2 sliced banana
- 1 tbs. wheat germ
- cranberries, golden raisins, pomegranate seeds, sliced almonds, shredded coconut, granola, naturally!
- Mix milk & water in pan. Add the banana when begins to boil with oats & flax. Turn on low and simmer. Whisk to cream the banana in the oats.
- Add the pumpkin during last minute of cooking.
- Pour oats in a bowl and top with remaining ingredients.
I promise there are oats under all of that! Doesn’t that just look and sound like a spread of “Thanksgiving Desserts” 🙂
The hubster started me off with a nice cup of coffee….um….what is up with the Christmas mug? Hello it is October!! Guess I shouldn’t complain since he did bring it to me.
Okay so meet Sam!!
This is Kohl’s puppy, Sam. Sam is sick today, he has a fever 😦 Kohl had to bring him in the car this morning. He wanted to take him to school, but mom had to intervene on that one. He made me promise that I wouldn’t leave Sam in the car because that is bad. I never break a promise to my boys so….Sam is with me at work!!
This mornings snack was some more of my Granola, Naturally! with 1/2 sliced banana, topped with milk! I am addicted to that granola!
Lunch was yummy today! An open face chicken salad sandwich with spinach, a cheese stick, and a squash and apple casserole I grabbed out of the freezer last night.
I have a dinner to cook for our neighbors tonight. They are moving into their new house that is finally complete. I am helping out by providing them with a lovely dinner so they can concentrate on unpacking 🙂
