Good morning!

I had plans to make myself a yogurt bowl this morning with Greek yogurt.  But when I went to make it I realized that I had purchased the full fat Greek yogurt and decided to return it to Trader Joe’s later today.  I opted for the second batch of oats that I had made yesterday, reheated in the microwave with a bit of milk and half of a small banana.

Oats and YogurtThe bowl on the right is my breakfast consisting of:

  • Oats made yesterday
  • 1/2 of a small banana
  • about 1/4 of a piece of gingerbread I made on Friday night (more about that later)
  • Natural PB

In retrospect I should have put in the entire banana.  My oatmeal was a bit bland at the end so I didn’t finish the last two to three spoonfuls.  Rascal had no problem eating it for me.  He loves finishing our food which I usually only let him do if it’s just leftover residue or something really healthy like veggies.

Brad’s breakfast is on the left.  He likes vanilla yogurt while I prefer Greek unless I’m making a smoothie. His breakfast consisted of:

  • 3/4 cups of organic vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • about 1/4 of leftover gingerbread
  • Natural PB

He didn’t care for the PB/blueberry combination.  I in turn, will eat PB on anything that will stand still long enough.  Although he did like the PB/gingerbread combo.

We also had coffee which is a morning staple for me.  I usually have two cups but only wanted one this morning

TJ Free Trade Coffee and HT French VanillaBrad bought me french vanilla coffee once thinking I would like it.  Usually the flavor in flavored coffees are way too strong for me.  However, last Christmas I learned a trick for his mom.  I mix the two making the flavored coffee way more subtle.  Currently we’re drinking the free trade breakfast blend from Trader Joe’s.  I mix the two using two parts regular coffee and one part flavored.  The mixture is just right.  Not too vanilla-y.

Now we’re off to try a new church.  Since moving here the only church we have attended is  the church I grew up in which is a good 45 minutes away.  Hopefully we can find a place we like with the same laid back atmosphere.
