Ohhh, bachelor, bachelor, bachelor…

Let me break it down for you – would you quit your job in San Francisco if you had a 25% chance of getting “picked” by a guy you’ve “known” for six weeks, gone on 3 dates with and who’s also dating 3 other women?! Um, NO! Team Alli! That girl finally gave me a reason to root for her last night! I wanted to reach through the television screen and shake Jake for asking that poor girl to quit her job, although he couldn’t promise he’d put a “ring on her finger” at the end.

As I was ranting and raving about why these people would even be thinking about marriage after only being in each other’s presence for a hot minute, Ben asked me the million dollar question – “why do you watch this stuff then?” Uh, good question…I have no idea! I suppose I’ll step off my soapbox now…

Do you get into reality shows? I thankfully have a very low-drama life, so this is apparently where I get all my juice from! ;)

In less, gets-way-to-into-reality-television woman news – I had Oats in a Jar for breakfast!


I’ve had this bad boy waiting patiently in my fridge for ages, just begging to be used as a vessel for my sweet and creamy stovetop banana oatmeal!



In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 banana (half sliced into oats while cooking, 1/2 sliced on top)
  • cinnamon
  • almond butter!

Pour the cooked oats into your nearly empty jar of nut butter, top with your sliced 1/2 banana and seriously.devour. 



If you need an almond butter or peanut butter fix – this is the way to go about getting it!


The hot oatmeal literally melts everything that’s left in the jar, into one gooey, fantastic mess. :) Mmm!!


Totally hit the spot! In the meantime, I’ll be patiently waiting here until my next almond butter jar nears its end… ;)


For lunch today, I am taking some leftover Tofu Sloppy Joes and a Thin Bun. FYI – the recipe makes enough for approx 100 sloppy joes, so be prepared for some leftovers. My freezer is now nicely stocked! 


And a lumpy, navel orange. Mmm. :)


In other San Francisco news, I was watching House Hunters last night and this couple was prepared to pay $429,000 for a 1 bed/1 bath 600 sq foot apartment in the city. Now, I know real estate in San Fran is among the most expensive in the country, if not the most expensive – but that is nauseating! I now call House Hunters, House Dream Crushers because one of my life’s dreams is to move to California someday, but watching stuff like last nights’ show is awfully discouraging!

On a happier note – I couldn’t be more content as I am right now, licking the last little spoonfuls of almond butter out of my jar. The best part of the whole thing is that you get to throw away your “bowl” when you’re done. Only a spoon to wash! :D

Have a GREAT Tuesday!


Do you believe in love at first sight?

Would you rather pay an outrageous mortgage or rent to live in your dream location, or live somewhere less desirable, but have the money to travel?
