Scott said earlier this week that he WANTS to like oatmeal.. he just doesn’t Sad smile.  BUT, I’m going to be hammering this stuff down him in different ways over the next few weeks to come up with something he likes.  Today was probably a 5/10 on the sole reason he just doesn’t. like. oats. Surprised smile


Oatmeal for TWO!

1 cup rolled oats, 1 cup water, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 diced apple, 2T raisins, 2 eggs (beaten in a separate bowl)

Boil water and then add in oats.  Let cook for ~3-5 minutes, then add in almond milk, apple chunks, raisins, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Continue to cook on medium to low heat stirring frequently to prevent burning.  In the last 2-3 minutes, stir in the beaten eggs.  This should be pretty darn thick and creamy by the time it’s done Open-mouthed smile.

Serve and top with whatever you want!  I used ~1-2T Love Grown Foods Granola, ~1T Peanut Butter, ~1 tsp Agave Nectar, sprinkle of cinnamon

I’ve got high hopes he’ll like this stuff one day.  It beats him eating Honey Nut Cheerios or a bagel and cream cheese every morning. 

As for work… STUPID busy today so I’ve got a short post for ya Smile…. in picture form!

Grapes and a cheese stick


Whole wheat tortilla, can of tuna, ~1-2T hummus, rainbow slaw, spinach, nectarine, water


Almond and Coconut KIND Bar


Off to pack up for tomorrow and head to game night Open-mouthed smile.


Hey!! LAST day of the week – finally!!  This be another “last post” for a few days… we’re officially moving over this holiday weekend so I’ll be without a computer/internet/electronic capabilities for a while.

We’ve been making decent progress on the house – not too much visual difference from last post because we’ve been packing, going to Lowe’s, going to Home Depot, painting boards..etc.  More stuff will go up over the next week or so however.  I will say though that my quads are absolutely annihilating me.  They are SO sore from laying hardwood on Monday that it hurts to even poke the muscles haha. I’m officially off of strength training for a little while Winking smile
