Man, was it EVER a struggle to get out of bed this morning! I squeezed in as much under the covers time as possible which resulted in my oats getting done in the nuker. Meh, water off a duck!
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
-splash of Rice Dream “eggnog” (added after photo)
Generally, when making my oats in the microwave, I’ll use my Quaker 3-5mns quick cooking oats. I find these work best with this method of cooking.
I made it to the gym today and hopped on the elliptical. I was exciting to get some Rach time in but some moron fiddled around with the TV settings and I couldn’t get the volume to work. %&*(^$#!!! Yes, I was R rated! Shenanigan’s like that annoy me to no end. Anyway, I got my workout in and that’s all that counts, right?

I wasn’t sure how it would freeze up with the milk in there, but it was OK. I just added a bit of water and gave it a good stir before reheating.
So, what do you think? Awesome right? Looks good, right? I just love it! HAHA!
I grilled up some fish for supper tonight, rainbow trout to be exact. I flavoured it with some parmesan & herb seasoning, then served it with some sautéed kale and steamed, mashed sweet potatoes which were then sprinkled with salt and pepper and dipped into Dijonnaise.
For dessert I had a Mama Pea almond joy bar, but no picture was taken of it. DD and I hit the road after supper for the mall. We both had some gift cert’s burning holes in our wallets and wanted to put them to use! She took so darn long trying clothes on that all I walked out with was 2 new bras and some probiotics that I ran out of yesterday. She scored some good deals at Aeropostale on jeans, tee’s and a hoodie. She doesn’t normally like jeans, but is at an awkward place in that she’s pretty much out grown the biggest “girls” size and because she’s tall with no hips we weren’t sure what ladies size she’d be. She tried a few pairs on and found one that she liked and felt comfy in. Now she knows that jeans can be a comfortable options as well as yoga style pants!
Tomorrow for me means no alarm needs to be set! DS has a game at 11am, but it is in town so we’ll gone and back by 12:30. What are you doing to this weekend?
Bye for now!!
