And I LOVE this package that the folks at Quaker sent to me: Gaiam yoga mat alarm clock breakfast bowl spoon cloth napkin 2 boxes of Banana Walnut instant oatmeal 2 boxes of Apple Cranberry Almond instant oatmeal Bob Harper’s Yoga Warrior DVD tote bog [...]

My Mad Hectic Life

As soon as I rolled out of bed yesterday morning, it was time to get to work.  Sunday was 100% dedicated to cleaning the yard.  (and watching Lost, but that wasn’t until later that night) Jared and I hauled 10 more bags of marble chips home to complete our pathway.  We began construction last weekend.  [...]

Out and About

Yesterday morning, I woke up craving a hearty breakfast.  Oatmeal! 1 cup of water 1/2 cup of oatmeal 1 tablespoon of brown sugar 1 tablespoon of raisins 1 tablespoon of Superfruit Spread 1 tablespoon of Raspberry White Chocolate peanut butter Once I accomplished enough items on my To Do list, I took Miles for a [...]

Oaty Oaty Oatmeal

As the title implies, I was really excited about breakfast this morning. But gotta rewind a little… I snacked on a small bowl of Wheat Thins (to hold me over until dinner) while I drove back to Boston last night. I made a very morning themed dinner:  a scrambled egg sandwich with cheese on an [...]

I’m Not Foolin’ Around

I’m not even going to attempt an April Fool’s post.  Just not feeling that creative today. I went shopping after work yesterday and the trip has taken its toll on my self-esteem.  I tried on a pair of jeans that were tight in the legs but too big in the waist.  Ahh, I hope my [...]

Water World

I’ve been in a meeting all day.  It’s raining cats and dogs.  Half of the city is underwater.  My basement flooded again.  I desperately need to go grocery shopping.  Not a fun time to be in Boston.  At least I made a delicious double batch of oats for breakfast this morning.  Jared and I shared [...]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I feel like I should be wishing you guys a Happy Halloween. Wanna know why?!?  Well, just keep reading…. I had a packet of instant oats again this morning.  (Don’t worry, I’ve since gone grocery shopping so tomorrow’s breakfast will be different.)  I added raisins and a scoop of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter to [...]

Boston Restaurant Week: Gaslight

I wasn’t impressed with Gaslight‘s restaurant week menu. But before I get to that, let me tell you about the first half of my Tuesday. Instant oatmeal for breakfast, a little on the watery side, but I did add extra raisins for flavor and to up the filling-factor. Homemade ice coffee! Dried apples slices for [...]

The Votes are In

Still refusing to go grocery shopping so I had to make instant oatmeal this morning.  I added some Crofter’s Organic Superfruit Spread and a spoonful of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter to create PB&J oats.  Yummmmm! Plus I enjoyed a fresh cup of coffee once I got to the office along with some cinnamon almonds. [...]

All in a Day’s Eats

For a bedtime snack, I had some French bread and olive oil. Here’s what my instant oatmeal actually looked like.  Less delicious looking than Quaker’s photo; mine were too watery.  I beefed it up by adding extra raisins. I snacked on baby carrots dipped in Laughing Cow cheese. For lunch I ate each Arnold Thin [...]
