Whew, dodged a bullet, last night we only got ~3 inches of snow. Today into tomorrow is supposed to bring another 8-14 – but for now, we’re good! I’ll tell you what, one of the true joys of home ownership is having a garage. Ahhh - pure, scrapeless, clean car bliss… My days of this:
Are over! (Wouldn’t that be awful?!) One time when I lived in Minneapolis, this happened to my car in my apartment’s parking lot and I had to use a pizza pan to dig myself out. It was as tragic as it sounds!
I decided to channel some summer inspired eats today with a bowl of Banana Berry Overnight Oats for breakfast!
In the mix:
- 1 Fat-free Blueberry Yogurt
- 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 sliced banana
- sprinkle of sliced almonds
It’s a fact that I can’t eat “chunky” stuff. Strawberry yogurt, chunky marinara sauce, cherry pie filling – nope, can’t do it. Gag! For some reason though, I can eat chunky blueberry and raspberry anything. Ie, I adore this blueberry yogurt with chunks of real blueberries. Yummy!
Sweet, crunchy, smooth, creamy – DELISH!
These perfect raspberries are pulling double duty today, as they’re the tart topper to my Sweet & Savory Kitchen Sink Salad.
Everything’s in there!
- Mixed greens
- Roma tomato
- Feta cheese
- Chopped pecans
I just love the combination of the sweet raspberries with the salty feta cheese. Topped with some sundried tomato vineagrette and a splash of balsamic vinegar – well, you’ve got yourself a winner, friends. :D
I also chopped up one juuuuicy mango. I always feel like I’m vacation when I eat a mango. That’s not such a bad feeling right about now, is it?!
How do you cut your mangoes? Here’s how I get after it!
Wow – today’s eats are a rainbow of color! I think I might do that subconsciously, actually. When it’s dreary and cold outside, sometimes I want to curl up with a big bowl of hot comfort food, but other times I need that visual pick me up. Fresh, vibrant fruits and vegetables tend to do the job nicely.
Time to get my day started – don’t forget to get yours started by entering the Lara Bar Variety Pack Giveaway! You have until Wednesday @ 3pm central!
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
