Hi, guys! 😀 I have a funny, little story for you this morning.
As you know, I wake up about 1.5 hours before Mal and Murphy do. Usually, I wait until they are awake to make breakfast, but this morning, my stomach was grumbling. So, I made myself some oatmeal with peanut butter.
Little did I know, my dog has super-sonic hearing when it comes to peanut butter, specifically the Teddie variety. If you’ve had Teddie, you know that the jar comes with a tin lid that makes a very distinct sound when you open it. In fact, the sound is so distinguishable, it woke Murphy out of a dead sleep. Apparently, he jumped out of bed, went running to the bedroom door, and starting whining. He has a worse peanut butter addiction that I do! It’s almost like his doggie drug. I may need to start looking into drug rehab centers for him!
Man, he’s cute! 😉
I understand why Murphy loves peanut butter so much. It’s frickin’ delicious! And, this morning, it was easily the highlight of breakfast.
I made Oats in a Jar with raisins, cinnamon, ground flaxseed meal, and an extra scoop of peanut butter from a new jar.
It was SUCH a yummy breakfast!
Later in the morning, I made myself an iced soy latte with a squirt of agave nectar.
Creamy, cold, and refreshing.
