Same Old Thing

Good Morning!

I’m headed out the door to work at the winery all day for the second round of Barrel Tasting. Should be interesting 😉

It felt like deja vu this morning when I woke up early, ate a slice of bread with peanut butter and raspberry jam and hit the road for a 3 mile run. My 5K is a week from today! When I got home I made some oats in a jar for breakfast—

I used 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup soymilk, 1/2 cup water, 1 super ripe banana and a pinch of sea salt and cinnamon. I’m sort of peanut buttered out right now, if that’s humanly possible 😉
Time for coffee and….wine? See you tonight!

    I was almond buttered out for a bit and then I had Naturally More and the spoon started dipping in the jar again….many many many times per day 🙂 Have a great day!

    I’m so jealous of your life! Living in Cali, working at a studio and with a wine company and biking northern California! I hope I can be as adventurous as you are post-college!

    I get peanut buttered-out too! Except for pb + chocolate combo – I’m never tired of that.

    How do you make Oats in a Jar? Do you nuke them in the jar or make them and mix them up in the jar?
    Have a great day!

    Great job on the running, it seems that you’ve really picked it back up with relative ease. Excited to read about the race next week.

    …good thing TJ’s now has Flax Almond Butter!

    You gotta try Tj’s roasted flax seed almond butter. It’s so good and crunchy.

    TJ’s also has bunches of daffodils for $1.29 each. I love how take home a rubber-banded tube of thick stems with closed buds on the end, cut them off short, put in a small vase, et voila! In a day a springy mass of fragrant yellow miracles cheering me on next to laptop and cup of hot tea. How did next to nothing become ‘You’re-All-That!’ in one day?? TJ’s other little miracle ‘Olympiad’ individual pizza’s with olives for about $3.99. Pop in oven, stand with fork and knife poised in the air waiting for timer to go off Mmm, so good. And yes, ‘You Know You’re French’–when eat not even les burgers with hands. Because that place you in the stoner White Castle Burger strip mall crowd.

    Monster bowl of oats are great. I have packets with maple and brown sugar and banana….and i add so much to it…its insane…nice to have hefty portions too instead of the little servings of some packets.

    coucou, i love big thick sea salt, but isn’t it lumpy in oatmeal? does it have enough time to absorb? i hate salty oatmeal.

    I love the Valencia PB from TJ’s…I think that some PB, especially the cheap kinds, have an aftertaste. That PB always tastes nice and ‘clean!’

    Peanut butter’d out?? Is that possible? :mrgreen:

    Actually, I totally know what you mean. I had the same “problem” last year. Now I’m on a peanut butter kick all over again. 😀

    I have a jar ready for the oats for tomorrow. I’m almost tempted to just eat the last bits with a spoon but I love OIAJ and don’t get them that often.

  • Laura Georgina

    I’m never peanut-buttered out, but for some reason I just can’t eat peanut butter in my oatmeal… So I definitely feel your cereal-related pain.

    It’s that TJ’s PB with roasted flaxseeds awesome though? I love the crunchy bits.
