Oatmeal...OH MY!

Okay.  I just posted that I was going to make some of the Whipped Banana Oatmeal from the blog Kath Eats Real Food.  If you visit her blog you will see she does some amazing things with her morning oatmeal.  So I figured anyone that is that dedicated to oatmeal that she has a tribute on her page has to have an amazing recipe.  And I was right.

Seriously!  It is a good thing I do not have a video camera in my kitchen.  I was doing a happy dance in a crazy way!  Wow!  Amazing!  Wow!  Paws was starting to wonder if I was having a seizure I was acting so weird.

I stuck with her recipe but I did not have any chia or flax (I will be getting some today).  I did add a bit of brown sugar, cottage cheese (cause she kept talking about it and I had some) and a spoonful of chunky peanut butter.

I think I will be eating this every morning for the rest of my life.  I cannot wait to try some of the combos she has on her blog!

Walk Sunya Walk!

Yesterday I ate at some of the best places in Portland.  For breakfast/lunch I stopped for B&G (biscuits and gravy) at Pine State Biscuits.   I had the Moneyball which is one of my favorites.  Then later in the day I hooked up with my Welsh friend Gareth to check out Porque No? for some fish tacos and a fab pomegranate margarita.  It was great.  I was happy.  But then crazy man wanted some pie and who am I to turn down pie.  So it was back to NE Alberta for a slice at Random Order Coffeehouse.   Maybe my friend Doug is right and I do need to move to NE Portland.  I am over there all the time.  That area has some seriously good eats.  Ah ha!  That could be a con as well.  How much bigger would my butt be if I lived there.  Though I have to say that pie man made a good point last night.  If I lived over there I could walk to all those places and get in some exercise.  True, but then I would miss St. Johns.  Good thing I don't have to decide right now.

Ahhhh pie!!!!!

What I did need to decide right now was that I ate too much yesterday and I need to get a move on this morning.  So I bundled up and headed out for a nice 2 mile walk.  Okay so I was walking to one of my favorite local breakfast places but they were closed for the holiday.  Darn!  So I am back to fix some yummy oatmeal that I found on my new favorite blog.  Check this out.  Whipped Banana Oatmeal.  Nothing like something warm in your tummy after a chilly walk.

Have a wonderful Sunya-day!!!
