Catching Up!

March 14, 2009 at 9:18 am 15 comments

Good Morning Bloggies!  It’s so sunny out, and I’m feeling a million times better then I did all week.  Although the sun is being kind of tricky because it’s still chilly out. I’m so excited to be doing nothing, but catching up on all your blogs and relaxing until like 1:30.   I have some things DVRed I might start watching soon including America’s Next Top Model.

Last night after I finshed getting ready I met my friends at a bar nearby.  I once again stuck to water, but Andrew got a hot pretzel and I ate a piece of that dipped into some salsa, that someone else got with their quesadilla.  It was really good.   But no picture sorry!

This morning I woke up and thank god I did wake up somewhat early because for some reason Andrew’s alarm didn’t go off and he needed to be up for a training at his school for 9.  He pretty much had just enough time to get dressed and run out the door. 

After he left I got up and decided to make a smoothie based on Rose’s over at On A Lobster Placemat.  I had to vary it a little based it on what I had in my own kitchen.

  • A bruised banana
  • tbsp of pb
  • pineapple (frozen)
  • blueberries (frozen)
  • Picture 003

  • Half a cup of oats
  • Picture 005

  • skim milk (about 1/2 a cup)
  • and 1/2 the 8 ounce bottle of POM.

I thought it was warmer out then it was so I walked out to enjoy this on the deck.

Oh my gosh this was so good, I  never would have thought to put oats in a smoothie.  Thanks Rose for inspiring me to try a great smoothie.  Believe it or not this is the first smoothie I have ever made!  It was really great, and I’m surprised at how filling this was!  I had to take it inside just a minute later I was so cold, and the chill factor from the smoothie didn’t help.

Hope you enjoy your Saturday, I’ll be back later tonight!  I forgot I have a friend’s birthday out tonight, at a bar that’s an old speakeasy!  I’ve never been there but i’ll be sure to take pictures when I do go tonight, because it sounds really cool to me.

    […] soon as I woke up this morning, and I almost made a smoothie (especially after seeing Amanda and Danielle replicate the Pink Smoothie from yesterday), but I decided to stick with oats for the fullness […]

    Genius! For as many smoothies as I’ve had in my lifetime (aka once a day), I have never tried putting oats in it…

    The smoothie looks great. Oats in a smoothie?.. the texture didn’t get messed up? I’ll have to try it.
