I’m a little bit ahead of the game here, since it’s not even Wednesday yet, but since I’m not the most reliable blogger, I thought I’d go ahead with my WIAW post for the week!
I was looking for some new teaspoons (we never seem to have enough!) and this mug was screaming buy me!!! So I did. I follow directions. Drinking from this mug has filled me with happy. I need more mugs that fill me with happy (as well as 16 oz of delicious hot Keurig coffee).
I need to make sure I tell Kath about my happy mug for her “Yogi Tea Wisdom and Lovely Mugs” series! Along with my happy coffee, I have been enjoying this again:
Hot oats! 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup milk, 1 T chia seeds, 1/2 banana, whip whip whip whip whip! Oh, and 1 T peanut butter shoved into the middle for a melty surprise!
For a snack yesterday, I tried to make Katie’s Oat Bran Pumpkin Protein Cake. Guess what I found out. “Oat bran” and “rolled oats” are not the same thing! I’m guessing that’s why my cake came out looking like this:
It tasted as disgusting as it looks (well, except the protein frosting which was yummy). I had two bites then threw it out. I tried twice more with different types of flour that I have on hand, and none worked. Guess I’ll try again when I actually have oat bran! Check out Katie’s post, though, because hers looks delicious! Why couldn’t I make one? Whyyyy???
Lunch today was a hugh jass salad – spinach, tomato, kidney beans, carrot, onion, and dressing made from balsamic glaze, mustard, and stevia. Delicious! But wow, is the coloring of this photo awful. My salad looks radioactive.
My snack today was a smashing success! I’ve seen it posted on blogs before, but when Kath posted her apples and cinnamon today, I had to have it right then. Seriously, right then. I marched straight into the kitchen, sliced up an apple, sprinkled on cinnamon, took the obligatory blog photo, then sprinkled about 3x more cinnamon and devoured! SO GOOD! Why did I wait this long to try apples and cinnamon. I want to eat this every day for all of apple season.
For dinner I had cereal. I’ll spare you a photo of Cheerios.
And those are my eats, my friends. Happy WIAW to you!
