Mornin’ all. It was hard for me to fall asleep last night because I was so excited about finally starting the blog, so naturally, I stared at the two lonely posts I had written and decided that they needed a friend. A friend that would have to wait until tomorrow morning, after I dropped the kiddies off at camp.
I have the best job ever. Everyday I get to hang out with two adorable, sweet, and extremely smart little girlies. LiaBanana is wise beyond her years.
“Do you have a job?”
“Yes, of course! This is my job, silly!”
“But this is too fun to be a job!”
Then there’s the pet store, where puppy#1 is the cutest little bugger I’ve ever seen,
puppy poopy #2 “has a pooping problem” and dog #3 (who was way too big to be called a puppy) scratches LiaBanana’s leg. You win some, you lose some.
Look at those eyes!
Poopy#2 and dog #3 didn’t make the cut. Sorry, guys. Just like Lia said, “That dog is never gonna find a home if he scratches everybody.” True dat.
1/3 cup toasted oat bran
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk/whatever milk you don’t hate
1 tbsp DARK unsweetened cocoa powder (for extra iron) or the reg. kind
1 heaping tbsp. peanut butter
pinch of cinnamon
half a packet of stevia or to taste (or use sugar/agave/100% maple syrup)
handful of dark chocolate chips (
Combine everything except the nanner and chips in a covered bowl, tasting for sweetness. Stir and then put that bad boy in the fridge before bed. When you wake up, add more milk/water until you get a smoothie-like consistency. Tear the half a nanner into big chunks and add to oat bran. The nanner will become gooey and carmelized and yummilicious a la Katie . Microwave for a minute to a minute and thirty seconds until you like the consistency. It shouldn’t need too long since the oats were soaking all night. If you’re feeling sassy, throw in and some chocolate chips. Stir, eat, repeat. You’ll be full for hours. Nothin to hate about that.
