After yesterday’s oats disaster, I decided to go the overnight route for this morning.

Guys, this tasted like apple pie! It was so good, and too easy.

Last night I combined:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • Cinnamon

    This morning I added:

  • 1 tbs. almond butter
  • 1 handful trail mix
  • Sprinkling of flax seeds

Then microwaved it for one minute. I hate cold breakfast. This was tepid and wonderful.

I couldn’t take my camera to school today (I’ll explain later), so I took this shot of my lunch while I was rushing out the door this morning.

A delectable salad using last night’s leftover fajita veggies. At school I added a portabella Gardenbuger. Around 4pm, I had a ww tortilla with crunch pb, cinnamon and cayenne pepper, a la Kate. The perfect snack.

Dinner was something that I have been looking forward to for months! Dinner with friends!

I have known 2/3 of these girls since Jr. High…we always have the best time. The one on the left is a second grade teacher, so we always have plenty of story swapping at dinner. We ate at a restaurant called Cocina Calore, and I got the Pizza de Parma.

The prosciutto was a little overwhelming for my taste, but that didn’t stop me from eating half of it. The other half is safely packed in my lunchbox for tomorrow. Yes, I have a lunchbox.

In the 3rd grade world…

Today was my kiddos’ very first experience with standardized testing. They did so well during the test, but I swear, the second I collected the test booklets, all hell broke loose. Pair that with the second day of indoor recess, plus a Valentine’s Day party to look forward to on Friday…it was a circus.


Also, thank you all for your incredibly sweet comments in regards to teachers. I really enjoy my job, but (despite popular opinion) it isn’t easy, and I so really value all the appreciation and kindness that was sent my way!
