I reunited with an old friend today…
It had been 17 days and oh I missed it so!!! I went on a short 3 mile run to test out my knee. I stayed in the grass the whole time. My knee was sore during it but I was able to keep running without a tremendous amount of discomfort which is a HUGE improvement!
I have an appointment with the ortho in the morning. Luckily, James is able to come with me which definitely puts my nerves at ease. I really hope it goes well!!!
I don’t have much interesting to show for in the way of dinner since I had leftover stuffed cabbage rolls. Usually I don’t get to eat a lot of leftovers since James has a 24 hour rule (more like 12 hours really…) that says if leftovers are in the fridge for more then 24 hours, he can eat them all. Needless to say, I was shocked there were a couple cabbage rolls left!! And boy were they good!
I have, however, had a change up in my breakfast! I love having oats in the morning (like many) but my oats have had a little extra company lately…
Yogurt! I’ve been using TJ’s Plain Nonfat European Yogurt. It’s such a great addition!! The yogurt really thickens up the oats as it cools. I usually stir in about 2 spoonfuls of yogurt into 1/3 cup of oats after the oats have cooked. It does cool down the oats but that doesn’t bother me. I stir in some cinnamon, some dried cranberries and top it with TJ’s high fiber cereal and organic unsweetened coconut.
It kind of reminds me of rice pudding! What a way to start the day!
And my favorite way to end it:
What is your favorite new addition to oats??
