Carrot Cake Buckwheat Bowl

by Courtney on March 26, 2011

Hello, Saturday. So nice to see you!

After waking up and taking care of a little clean-up around the house, I was more than ready for a nice, delicious breakfast. Today, buckwheat was the name of the game!

Oh yes, and of course, some coffee. Winking smile

I used the same base for today’s buckwheat as I did last time, but it was the toppings that made the meal. Not only was there PB involved, but…

Remember last week when I had to make some carrot cake cupcakes? Well, I’ve had a few extras lying around the house…and half of one happened to end up on top of my breakfast bowl. Oh yes, those two little white blobs are absolutely cream cheese frosting.

This was one serious bowl of buckwheat. Aaaaaamazing! Smile

Your breakfast looks so good! I need to start stepping out of the box instead of having the same thing everyday!!! The last place I visited was Doha, Qatar! My sister and finance are over there… it was sooo different but alot of fun!! They also had some amazing food over there….. lots of hummus!!

I never had buckwheat as a cereal, I’ll have to try it. :)

We live on the border of PA and NJ in upstate NY, so we visit them quite often. The last state I visited for fun was Nevada, though.

Ooh, I love day trips! The last time I crossed state borders was earlier this month to surprise my mom in Michigan for her book launch! Even though I love living in Virginia, I sure do miss my fam! Hope you have a great day!

Have fun on your little road trip! The last state I was in was probably Indiana – boring, right?
