While I wish I could wear a cute scarf or fuzzy sweater some days, I am grateful for the warmth because it makes my morning walk with Sadie much more enjoyable. Walking her with cold air whipping around my face = no fun.
This morning Sadie was in true crazy-dog mode, picking up each and every piece of trash, then looking at me as if to say “Look, Mom! A treasure!” I knew our normal 40 minute loop wouldn’t cut it today, so while I was preparing my breakfast, I let her out back to hunt for lizards.
She didn’t catch any lizards this morning. Next time, Sadie!
After a good workout and fun doggie play time, I was ready for mah breakfast! Hot oatmeal sounded perfect and since I’ve had a box of Kashi instant creamy vanilla oats sittin’ pretty in my pantry for months, I decided to prepare a packet.
I dumped the dry mixture into my bowl, added water and microwaved it until I got a thick and creamy bowl of oats.
I added a heaping spoonful of pumpkin mixed with a quarter of a scoop of cinnamon protein powder to the oats and stirred away.
Eventually I had a vibrant bowl of cinnamon vanilla pumpkin oats!
Last night during our trip to Whole Foods, I picked up a box of Mighty Leaf chocolate mint truffle tea that was anxious to try this morning as part of my breakfast.
I love the intricate tea bags!
After admiring the wonderful craftsmanship on the tea bags, I got around to actually brewing a cup.
My super-hot breakfast hit the spot!
Question: What’s your favorite kind of tea?
