I got so much great feedback on yesterday afternoon’s post…I’m so glad you guys liked it! I actually posted that shortly before heading out later in the afternoon to spend a few hours with some of the girls.
I’ll tell ya, there’s nothing like spending time with some of your closest girlfriends, chatting, and munching on warm breadsticks from Olive Garden. It was a much-needed evening out!
Shortly after I got back home, Jay and I settled in to watch our Monday night TV line up, including How I Met Your Mother, The Voice, plus last night’s addition of the Jets game (which I don’t really want to talk about). But The Voice?!? Please tell me that you guys watched the last performance of last night’s episode…talk about goosebumps! I then proceeded to make Jay watch all the videos I posted yesterday with me again and we both had a few really good laughs. Too funny.
This morning, I am extremely excited to have one of my favorites back into the routine…
Their oats seriously are my favorite, and they put my most recent canister of store brand oats to shame (I should have known better). They’re super thick and creamy like steel cut oats but cook up just like regular oats. They are, by far, THE best.
So this morning I whipped up a batch of Pumpkin Custard Oats…minus the custard part.
Because I forgot the egg whites. Crap.
Things were still tasty though, plus they were topped with a little Cranberry Pecan Love Grown Foods granola, so of course they were awesome.
I’ve got a few different things on the agenda today, so time to get crackin’!
Question for the Morning:
Do you tend to brand-shop when grocery shopping, or do you go with whatever is cheapest (i.e., the store brand, etc.)?
I’m actually semi-picky with this one and am definitely a brand snob with certain food items. My oats are one of them, but I’m also picky about other things like ketchup (Heinz), and waffles (recently found out the store brand is naaaasty).
