Hello friends. I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend! As always, it has come to a close too soon, I’m afraid. On the bright side of things, this is my last full week of work before having a mini-break for Thanksgiving!
Saturday morning I headed off to the gym. I was planning to take a BodyPump class, but woke up with a headache & decided to pass. Instead, I completed 45 minutes on the elliptical, & made a stop at Dunkin’ Donuts for some pumpkin coffee!
Later Saturday afternoon, Chris & I headed to BJ’s Wholesale Club for the first time! We hadn’t done any bulk shopping together, & we kept saying how much fun we were having… yes, we’re that cool! The day’s most notable finds? A giant container of Nutella for $4 (!!!) & a super-sized carton of Ben & Jerry’s pumpkin cheesecake ice cream for $5.
I didn’t blog yesterday evening, but I did update my Recipe page. It hadn’t been updated since August 28 (what the heck?!), so it was in major need of some attention.
I’m trying to get all of my blog “ducks in a row” because there will be some changes happening around here at the end of the month!
This morning, I was up bright & early & got to work in the kitchen. I made a new baked oatmeal recipe for Chris & I.
S’mores Baked Oatmeal for 2
- 1 & 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
- 2 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4-1/2 c. milk
- 1/4 c. milk chocolate chips
- 1/4 c. mini marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350*.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Spray 2 mini loaf pans (or anything similar) with cooking spray & divide oatmeal mixture evenly.
- Bake at 350* for 15 minutes, then turn the oven to broil & bake for an additional 3-5 minutes.
I topped mine with some powdered sugar & enjoyed the oatmeal alongside of a cup of caramel coffee!
After church & lunch with Chris’s parents, we made the mistake of going to a local home builder’s open house. Now we have the house itch – bad!
Before I go gear up for the week, I have to share these pictures of my darling little pug…
This would be him all snuggled up in my pillows, & yes, he put himself in this position! (Note to self: flip pillows over tonight!)
Did you do anything fun this weekend? Anything exciting coming up this week?
