A Big Announcement!

by Courtney on January 18, 2011

Could today get any better???

As if I wasn’t already excited enough about having another Snow Day today after having yesterday off…

I go ahead and make the first bowl of stovetop oats that I’ve had in months…

But these weren’t just any stovetop oats…we’re talkin’ PB & J Oats!

In the oats base:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 3 tbsp raisins

For my PB&J topping, I broke out the ‘ol PB2 jar today and mixed up a nice, big 2 tablespoons worth of the stuff. It’s been a while since I last had my PB2…how could I forget about it??

Then went on a little Polaner Raspberry All-Fruit, followed by a little crunch. Yes, that’s half of an Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chunk cookie. It almost seemed wrong…yet it seemed sooo right. Winking smile

So talk about a good morning, right??

Well, that’s not even the half of it

READ THIS AND YOU’LL KNOW MY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!

WAHOOOOO!!!!! Open-mouthed smile Open-mouthed smile
