Well, well, well… it looks like another Sunday evening has reared its ugly head. I don’t know about the weather where you are, but here in PA it’s been a rainy, dreary day; perfect for napping, vegging in front of the TV & not much else!
Luckily, it hasn’t rained the entire weekend. In fact, the majority of the day yesterday was actually pretty nice!
I started my Saturday morning with an hour-long spin class. I knew I’d be eating a ton (I did!) at Chris’s brother’s birthday celebration Saturday night, so it felt good to get a workout in & get the day started off on the right foot.
After I got home from the gym, it was time to dig into breakfast – overnight oats. I tried out a new combination that was amazing; I definitely plan on re-creating this several times throughout the upcoming week!
I started with my usual “base” (2/3 c. oats, 1/2 c.+ milk, 1 tbsp. chia seeds, & 1 tbsp. plain Greek yogurt). The toppings (added in the AM) were what really made this bowl delicious. On top went gold raisins, semisweet chocolate chips, 1 tsp. peanut butter, a drizzle of honey, & some brown sugar. So, SO good!
On the side, some iced coffee that I brewed before spin & let get nice & cold in the fridge while I was gone:
The rest of the day Saturday was spent running a few errands before heading off to spend time with Chris’s family. We had a very special guest come with us, who couldn’t have been happier to be included in the fun:
I slept in a little later than usual this morning, since I wasn’t in bed until almost 1:00AM last night. I decided to take the time to make something a little more “involved” for breakfast, & by involved I mean mixing water & an egg with pancake mix!
I made pancakes for Chris & I, adding a few chocolate chips to 2 of mine.
After church, I spent a good part of my afternoon postponing the inevitable – grocery shopping in the rain. Eventually, around 3:00PM, I sucked it up & got it over with.
Really all you have to do is combine 1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce with 2 tbsp. brown sugar to make a “glaze” for your pork… easy!
I used thinly sliced pieces of pork, seasoned them with salt & pepper, & then began adding the glaze about halfway through the cooking process.
Corn & masked potatoes served as side dishes:
A comforting meal for a rainy day!
Now, I’m working on a few preparations for the week & I think Chris mentioned something about Dairy Queen blizzards & episodes of our favorite TV show of all time, Friends… sign me up!
What are your favorite pancake mix-ins or toppings? I love my sweets, so I think I have to go with chocolate chips!
