stovetop oats!

off to a good start of the day with stovetop oats! i watched kath's video on her famous whipped banana oats, and then made a bowl of my own:

** 2 starch, 1 fruit, 1/2 dairy, 1 protein, 2 other **

into the mix:
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk (i may go back to my old standby - soymilk - but i had just picked up some 1% at whole foods for a recipe so i figured i'd try it)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 T ground flax
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • handful caramalized walnuts, chopped
  • generous spoonful almond butter
i like this technique - i think the whipping process really does create a fluffier oatmeal.

oh, and progress on the baby overalls! i really haven't been crocheting all that much recently, but i finally got the pieces done (except for a small colorful pocket for the front but that won't take long). i'm currently blocking (pinning to size) the top part, but i laid out all the pieces so you can see what the back will look like, eventually. the sewing together actually takes a while (partly because i'm a perfectionist) so there's a bit of work until the end product, but it's definitely coming together nicely!

so thankful that i'm feeling better... off to start a (hopefully) productive day!
