Well I successfully used easy wakeup tips #1, 3 and 5 this morning to get up and go on my morning Mom walk! I’m telling you, the smell of fresh, warming, hot coffee sitting there waiting for you when you wakeup is just fantastic! It was actually perfect because it’s kind of chilly out there – 56 degrees! It’s been kind of cold for the past four days or so…what’s up with that?
Continuing my warm and delicious theme – and channeling my love for my favorite fall dessert Apple Crisp – I made Apple Crisp Oatmeal!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup each of oats, skim milk & water
- 1 Braeburn apple, chopped fine
- Splash of vanilla and cinnamon
- 2 t brown sugar
- ~2 T toasted coconut
- ~2 T toasted almonds
THIS COMBO IS SO GOOD!!!!
Mmmmm, so sweet and delicious…and a lot more waistline friendly than regular Apple Crisp!
For lunch I packed a repeater of last nights din-din as well as one of my favorite afternoon pick me up snacks:
If you squeeze a little lime juice over your avocados, they stay nice and green. If you forget, it’s ok – they might not look too pretty, but they’ll still taste good!
These grapes are from the same bunch as these – and are the snappiest, crunchiest, sweetest grapes I’ve probably ever had…no lie!
Isn’t it weird how bags of grapes are sometimes hit or miss? This bag was so delish, but a lot of times I’ll get a bag of all squishy grapes…not good times
Alright friends, I’m off to start my day. Hey – it’s Hump Day! Make it a great one!!!
What’s your favorite dessert of all time?
My fave fall dessert is for sure apple crisp, but I think my fave dessert of all time is…a warm, chewy, gooey, chocolaty Caramel Brownie!!!
Kind of like this…HOLY COW!!
