Happy Monday, folks! 😎

My weekend was so jam-packed, I never had a chance to get to the grocery store for our weekly shopping. So, as soon as I finish this post, I am heading straight there. There were slim pickings in our kitchen this morning, but, thankfully, we always have old-fashioned oats in our pantry! 😉


In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup spelt flakes
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops of Teddie peanut butter
  • Raisins


I also enjoyed some iced coffee with vanilla soy milk with breakfast.


44th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest

So, I have some exciting news for you guys! Have you ever heard of the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest? If not, here’s what it’s all about…

One finalist with a simple recipe idea will become a millionaire at the Bake-Off® Contest in April, 2010. It could be a new twist on a family favorite or a variation of a dish enjoyed at a restaurant. Maybe it’s a recipe inspired by leftovers in the refrigerator or the desire to try a new product. As finalists created their original recipes, they considered not only taste, but appearance, creativity and how the recipe will appeal to families across America.


Sounds pretty cool, right?!? 😀

Well, the nice folks from Eggland’s Best have asked me to blog about the event, so I will attend the Bake-Off in Orlando, Florida this coming weekend! :mrgreen: A number of the contestants are using Eggland’s Best eggs in their recipes, so the company doesn’t want to miss a thing! Who could blame them!

So, starting next Saturday, I’ll be covering the whole event from start to finish, so be sure to tune in. It’s gonna be a blast!
