Last night while Santypants was on the phone with T-Mobile for a hundred hours, I prepped my morning breakfast: oats! It’s been a while since I’ve had anything besides oat bran or Fiber One original, and oats were on my mind. I took an empty Oikos container and filled it with the following to soak overnight:
- 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp brown sugar
When I got to work, I added 1/2 of a banana, sliced. Then I stirred it all up and popped it in the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. I stirred after 1 1/2 minutes. It was soooo creamy. I’ve read about “overnight oats” plenty of times on Kath’s
blog, but have been sticking with my usual breakfasts. This is a great idea!
After it cooked, I topped the oats with a few dried cranberries, raisins, and a couple of milk chocolate chips! The melted chips make me soooo happy in the morning. I washed it all down with my usual 8 oz of skim milk!
Later for lunch, I finished up the rest of the chicken salad with more spinach. I snacked on more grapes and an apple.
After work, I zoomed over to Target because I saw in their weekly sale ad that LUNA BARS are on sale! After tasting the peppermint cookie flavor yesterday, I needed MORE! I would much rather eat a Luna bar than a cookie, especially knowing it has actual health benefits. A box of six bars is on sale for $5.79 each, plus you get an additional single bar FREE! The single bars are also on sale for $1.02. I got 2 boxes, 2 free single bars, and then I bought another one just because I couldn’t resist. $12.60 for 15 bars = $.84 each! What a steal!
Dinner was soooooooo good: homemade pizza! This one came pretty close to beating the Prosciutto & Parrano pizza
I made in September. Of couuuurse I sweetly asked the pizza man at Whole Foods to roll out the whole wheat dough for me. He looked at me funny this time, as if I hadn’t asked him twice before. Maybe he just hates me. Anyway, I brushed the dough with a little bit of olive oil and added sliced mozzarella and Saint Agur gorgonzola.
Then I added a sliced D’Anjou pear…
A few slices of Prosciutto di Parma…
and stuck it in the oven for 15 minutes at 450*. When it was done baking, I topped it with toasted walnuts and drizzled it with honey! AHH!
With all that carb energy I had a dance party in my room with my two friends Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj!
