OKAY! I’m going to keep the first part of this post word light and picture heavy because I want to get straight to the GREAT GIVE AWAY that I’ve been planning to do!
I tried the tofu/oat/immersion blender method today on my oats with fabulous results! Here’s what all went into the mix;
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup soft tofu
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
DS had a game at 9:30 this morning. We all went because it was the first time they played full ice. All season the rink has been divided in to 2 sections with 2 mini games going on. Today was the real deal! DS even scored 2 awesome goals! YAY!
I did some relaxing in front of the computer for an hour before lunch getting caught up on blogs and some news events. I finally moseyed downstairs for some eats shortly after noon. Here’s what was on the lunch menu…
Carrots and jalapeno hummus, a flatout wrap with ¼ cup egg beaters, Laughing Cow cheese wedge and more hummus, and a juicy orange.
Lunch “dessert” was ½ of a biscuit from yesterday with some cinnamon raisin PB slathered on.
Right after lunch was shower time and off to another hockey game downtown!! It was against a neighboring city which is always fun! Our team won 2-1! After the game they hosted a “skate with the Storm” where fans are invited on the ice for 45 minutes of ice time with the team. My 2 were all over that!!
We got home late and the fam decided they wanted chicken burgers. No thanks! I tried this noodle stuff that I bought on a whim a few weeks ago;
I served it over top a good cup of steamed veggies to bulk it up.
It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good. The noodles kinda stuck to each other fairly quick and there were some unknown crunchy things in it. The taste wasn’t too bad, but it wasn’t very dominant. It was more like a hint of peanut going on. I don’t think I would waste my money on it again, but it served its purpose tonight! Dessert was the last brownie! I Know! I cut the batch in 12 and they’re gone! Just proves what a big hit they were! :)
And now for the best part of this post – the give away! Here are the reasons I decided to do this;
*March 5th will be my 200th post
*March is my birthday month
* I’d love to attract new readers to the blog
What's up for grabs, you ask? I’ve got a bit of a goodie bag for the winner which will contain a bag of my favourite oats, Windy Hill Farms Flax Seed Cereal, a jar of Creamy Coconut Paradise Spread, a jar of Pampered Chef Sweet Mocha Hazelnut Sprinkles and a Lemon Coconut Simply Bar!
Don't worry...the winner will get a full bag of Flax Seed Porridge! When I went to the store yesterday to buy a bag they were sold out. I was told that a new shipment will be in this Friday so I used my bag as a stand in. :)
This is what you need to do:
*leave a comment on this post letting me know which item in the give away you are most excited to try
*Link back to this post on your blog and let me know that you’ve done so via your comment or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
*Please put me on your blogroll!
And that’s all, folks! If you don’t have a blog, don’t fret! You can still enter by leaving me a comment in this post! Now’s the time for all my lurkers to come forth! You will have until midnight on March 5 to enter. I will be choosing and announcing a winner (using the Random Generator site) in my post on March 6. Please, only one comment per reader! This is open to anyone, anywhere with a mailing address! Have fun! I’m very eager to see what the response will be! I hope to “meet” a lot of new people with this!
I’m off to tune into the Amazing Race! Can’t believe the weekend is over already. This coming week will be super busy for me, but swimming lessons are wrapping up for both kids so we’ll get a break from that anyways. My hubby starts afternoon shift tomorrow so he’ll be taking the kids to school which will help me out immensely in the morning. I’ve got a batch of crock pot oats cooking right now, too. I got the base recipe from Sarah at Tales of Expansion and if it turns out as fantastic as her picture’s look, I’m in for a treat tomorrow! My fruit of choice was 5 apples of different varieties that I got dirt cheap at the store yesterday because they’re on their last legs….perfect for what I intended to do with them! :) So, I guess my oats will be called “Apple Pie Oats”! I also used lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla extract. One cup of frozen cranberries also jumped into the mix! Here’s what they look like now…
I’ll post a photo or 2 of the finished product tomorrow!
Have a great rest of the weekend!
Bye for now!!
