I’d bet at least a dollar that pumpkin pie oats show up in at least half of the posts over on Peas & Crayons today. Hope you get reconnected more permanently soon, Jen! ❤
Mine are the steel cut variety, with 1/2 cup pumpkin, lots of cinnamon, and vanilla cake batter protein powder mixed in.
Lots and lots of tea – trying to get over this cold / cough / sinus infection yuckiness! Trucking along through the work day since all of my PTO will gone after next month!
Lunch was weekend dinner leftovers – steamed broccoli and 2 pepper mac and cheese, which I’ve shared on the blog before. Extra jalapenos this time helped clear my sinuses temporarily! 🙂
After work snackage…
A pluot! Half plum, half apricot, extra juicy and delicious!
A few spoonfuls of cottage cheese for some protein, since my MIL (mother in law) invited me over for “soup” – which I interpreted as “not a full dinner”. I also had a string cheese and some carrots with hummus.
I think my MIL was extra excited for me to try the soup – she more TOLD me to than ASKED me to – because it’s hard for her to make something I can eat. She cooks lots of polish food, usually pork, beef, or something deep-fried that she can’t promise doesn’t have meat in it. Her mushroom croquettes are DELISH, but pretty high calorie, and pierogies have just never been my favorite.
She made a creamy cauliflower soup using this mix:
She added fresh cauliflower, carrots, onions, and celery. Anyone want to translate it and tell me I didn’t eat chicken broth last night? 😉
I’ve briefly mentioned before that my new husband and I are off to Poland and Italy for our honeymoon starting next Tuesday. We’ll spend the first few days in Poland with his family for a wedding and then navigate through Italy ourselves, flying out of Rome. At first I was going to just take a blogging break, but now I’m thinking about guest posts.
I’ll be the guest poster on Laura’s blog on September 30th (and I’m so honored!), so I figured I might as well reach out to you guys!
E-mail me at clairetherd @ gmail dot com (preventing spam ;)) if you’d like to be a guest post-er!
Would you eat a packaged food if you couldn’t read its nutrition facts or ingredient label? My MIL didn’t give me much choice!
