man i was starrrrving when i woke up this morning. i wonder if it was because i ate dinner earlier than usual lat night? i had had a piece of chocolate later, but no real snack (which was fine by the way - i didn't get hungry).

i was dreaming about oat bran while in the shower, and decided on a lemon theme:
  • 1/3 c oatbran, 1/3 c vanilla soymillk, 2/3 c water
  • 1/2 banana, handful dried cherries (cooked in)
  • couple drops lemon extract
  • a few candied walnuts
  • 1/2 lemon larabar
  • extra generous spoonful almond butter
.. and a yellow mug to match the lemonyness...



  1. lemon extract in oats? really? doesn't it taste too...citrusy? I have a big bottle of lemon extract which I stupidly bought on impulse at Costco...I need to use it up! so I'm gonna try your idea...thanks!!

  2. well i don't know about using it up... you only need a couple drops in the entire bowl. see this post - i actually stole the idea - love how all us food bloggers get ideas from others.
