I’m so glad to be home!!!
There’s nothing like coming home after being away for a few days. It’s such a great feeling– all warm and fuzzy– especially since my family was so happy to see me. Murphy licked me to death in the car on the way home from the airport! I’m also glad to be home so I can eat “normally” again– oatmeal, salads, and beer for me! 😉
Last night, Mal and I enjoyed dinner at American Craft with my friend, Jim, and his girlfriend, Kristen. (Jim is the nice guy who hooked Mal and me up with some New Balance gear.) I hadn’t seen Jim in years, so it was nice to finally catch up and meet the special lady in his life.
After my culinary adventures in Orlando, I wanted something light for dinner. I chose the The Market Salad with mixed baby greens, seasonal vegetables, feta, a boiled egg, and sweet onion vinaigrette.
So fresh, so delicious! 😀
I’m glad that I asked for the sweet onion vinaigrette on the side because it didn’t have much flavor. 😕
I also drank a couple of beers with dinner. I mean, I couldn’t visit American Craft without having some beer! 😉
With dinner, I enjoyed an Ommegang Witte and Jolly PumpkinWeizen Bam BiÃ¨re. The Ommegang Witte was an awesome Belgian white– light, smooth, and citrus-y. The Jolly PumpkinWeizen Bam BiÃ¨re was good, but not at all what I expected. I thought it would be a pumpkin-flavored beer, but the name of the brewery is Jolly Pumpkin, not the variety. Bummer. It had a fruity (apricot), spicy, and refreshing flavor.
Ok, enough beer talk for 9:00 in the morning! 😉
While I was away, my husband finished off the Teddie peanut butter and saved the jar for me. Hooray! He used to just throw them away, but he’s since learned about the specialness of an empty nut butter jar! 😉
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
- Chia seeds
- Teddie peanut butter
Make Oatmeal in a Coffee Pot
A reader sent me a link to this video about how to make oatmeal in a coffee pot. I thought it was really cool!
