Obviously, as you can see from this post’s title, the creativity is really flowing this evening!
Today was a typical Sunday, which usually looks like this for me:
- Wake up, walk Stewie, get the paper
- Make breakfast
- Shower/get ready/blog reading
- Eat lunch/make grocery list
- Target & grocery shopping
- School work
- Relax/more blog reading
I offered to make Chris breakfast this morning. He wasn’t feeling well & he had to work for a few hours, so I figured I’d send him off with a full tummy!
I asked him what he wanted in his oatmeal, & he responded with “apple butter.” Interesting…
After his oatmeal was done, I decided to make a batch for myself that looked very similar to the one I ate yesterday, only this time I took a page out of Chris’s book & added some apple butter!
In the mix:
- 1/2 c. oats
- 1 tbsp. pumpkin
- About 1 tsp. apple butter
- Chopped walnuts
- Chia seeds
- Chocolate chips
Served with some coffee on the side…
All mixed together…
The melted chocolate chips are my favorite part!
For dinner, my parents invited Chris & I to go along with them & my sister to a local Italian place. Unfortunately, they were going for a late-lunch/early-dinner & it was during my errand running time! Luckily for Chris & I, they offered to drop off 2 meals for us.
Really, I think they just wanted some face-time with you-know-who:
For my dinner, I got an order of ravioli & meatballs, & had a slice of bread (x2) & butter on the side. I only ate 3 of the 4 giant raviolis & 1 meatball so I could have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Speaking of tomorrow… while most teachers & students have tomorrow off for Columbus Day, our district has in-service days both tomorrow & Tuesday. Something I’m looking forward to? I don’t have to worry about getting to work quite as early as I do on a normal school day & that means I can whip up something other than my usual English muffin breakfast! Yay!
What would you do with an extra hour in the morning? Workout? Sleep? Make a delicious breakfast?
