Santa Kitty’s

And so another weekend has come to an end! How about that? Did everybody have a good one? Today was nice and low key at the Krista’s Kravings house. I made me some apple raisins oats this morning. They reminded me of the Quaker packets I use to eat as a kid! 100_7559

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • raisins
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • walnuts
  • cinnamon sugar


We woke up to rain which melted quite a bit of the snow. I was glad for the warmer temps, but I hope it doesn’t cool off too much tonight or we’ll wake up to an ice rink. We didn’t go out to the farm as the horses were all getting pampered with pedicure’s this morning and it’s quite the chore! Instead, we lazed in front of the TV for a bit and then DD and I played scrabble while the boys ran some errands.

I made myself a quick omelette for lunch with mushrooms, broccoli, egg whites and Frank’s Redhot sauce. 100_7561

Then we left to take DS to a friend’s birthday party and then a trip to Zellers (much like Target) so my hubby could pick up a few things. He couldn’t resist buying a Santa coat to antagonize the cats with. Seeing as I’m just as sadistic as him when it comes to making fun of the cats, I was all for it! My oldest cat, Octavius, was too big to fit in it, but Charlie and Pepper couldn’t escape. Pepper took it like a champ;


Charlie was horrified! He took off to the nearest chair and sat down. Every time we stood him up, he flopped back down! If looks could kill! 100_7576


Back tracking a wee bit here, we had some time before we had to pick the boy up so the 3 of us went to Tim Horton’s for Hot chocolate's. I enjoyed a candy cane one with a maple pecan Danish.


Nom, nom…what a treat! :D

Once we were home and settled, the kids went out to build a snowman. I took advantage of the few minutes of silence and wrote out all my Christmas cards so they can go in the mailbag at work tomorrow.

Dinner was a simple affair….bruschetta chicken. I browned up some chicken breast strips with mushrooms and then added this mix;


I know, cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater! Once everything was heated through I served it over WW spaghetti. I kept my pasta portion to a 1/2 cup serving. 100_7579

This was really good, and really fast to prepare! My sweet end was a lemon tart; 100_7581

Cuz ya know….I didn’t already eat enough sugar today!! ;)

Very soon now we will be watching Rudolph which is one of our family favourites. Then it will be an early bedtime as I have to get back into the swing of real life again tomorrow! I’m kinda excited to get back to work, and kinda not. Humpf. It’ll be interesting to say the least! Well, enjoy what’s left of your evening…

Bye for now!!
