Because it’s Ladies’ Night…

Remember that scene from the wedding singer?

I’ve been singing this song ever since my roommates and I decided Friday night margaritas were definitely in order.

The lighting in the restaurant was terrible and my pictures even worse. Nasty food pictures may make my stomach turn more than anything else so I’ll spare you the gory details. I ended up having a nice cold glass of Allagash White with a slice of orange, not a ‘rita! I always love the idea of ‘rita but I only like the frozen variety – with all that sugar, I figured a beer was a better call. It definitely hit the spot!

My girlies and I also split a plate of nachos with the best guacamole we have ever had. We could not stop taking little tastes trying to figure out what the mystery zing was at the end of every bite. They definitely added lots of garlic, which is unusual for guac, but that secret something is still eluding us. Guess we’ll just have to go back 😉 Restaurant nachos are definitely not an everyday or even every week kind of food but some weeks just call for the girls to get a little crazy. Besides, my beer would have been lonely with out a snacky friend to hang with.

I bought room darkening curtains a few months back and even though they usually work wonders, I think the long week of early wake-ups ruin Saturday mornings for me! Despite not getting into bed until 11:30 last night, I was still awake at 6:30 with breakfast on my mind. Maybe it’s because I knew this was waiting…

I taught a spinning class last night and that always leaves me absolutely ravenous the morning after. Beer (even just one) just adds to the rumbley tummy! Fresh, fruity oats were calling my name.

Today’s Bowl

In the pot:

1/2 c. rolled oats

1/2 c. unsweeted vanilla Almond Breeze

1/2 c. water

1/2 sliced banana

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 egg, stirred in at the end

On top:

1 large teaspoon raw almond butter

sliced kiwi (!!!)

a few slices banana

sprinkle Nature’s Path Hemp Plus Granola

SB’s House Blend on the side!

Have you ever had raw almond butter? Most almond butters feature roasted almonds but let me tell you, raw is something special. It’s almost like cookie dough in flavor! Can’t go wrong there =)

I realize most of my posts have featured oatmeal and it reminds me of a comment I read on KERF the other day. A reader said that Kath posts waayyyy too many pictures of her oatmeal – nobody needs that many and they are her least favorite part of KERF. Of course this led to a slew of people defending not only the wonders of oatmeal but the need for thousands of photographs of this miracle breakfast. I have to admit, I’m an oatmeal photo junkie. Beautiful photographs of oatmeal pull right on those heart strings.

A friend once told me to never apologize for the smell of my tuna fish sandwich and I think this advice probably holds for photos of oatmeal, too! You won’t be seeing this lady quit the oat photo shoots any time soon.

Have a great Saturday!
