It felt so nice to sleep in a little bit this morning! (Although sleeping in meant getting up at 8 rather than 6). It's so funny to think back on my college days when I slept in til 12 on Saturdays on a regular basis. Not from drinking and partying the night before, but simply because I was THAT TIRED. I feel so old now because I really can't sleep any later than 8 or else nothing will get done!
Anyway, this morning Salah left to drive back to the Dallas area, and on to New Orleans tomorrow. What a lucky girl! She gets to enjoy the delightful food of that area for the next couple of days. I totally miss classis Southern food, and by Southern food I mean fat-laden fried goodness that is completely acceptable in the South. She's going to Cafe Du Monde like 4 times...I might be slightly jealous!
This morning I had pumpkin oats with some more toasted coconut...
In the mix we have:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 banana
- 1 Tbsp cranberries
- 1.5 Tbsp flaked toasted coconut
- 1/3 cup canned pumpkin stirred in at the end
- a hefty sprinkle of cinnamon
I ate that, and now we're getting ready to go shovel the driveway and sidewalk of a lady whose husband broke his leg on the ice yesterday...my parents are the sweetest, most wonderful people in the world for offering to do this for her :) Can't wait to serve, and then go on a 2-3 mile jog (hopefully), do some weights, and maybe some yoga? We'll see!
I'm in charge of dinner tonight, and I'm thinking of something Italian + healthy...nom nom nom!
Y'all have a good one!
