It’s exam week at the school where I teach, so while I still feel like I’ve been moving a mile a minute, at least it’s in my own apartment.
I was excited to have some time to make stovetop oatmeal…
Notice the mug. I ask myself this every morning.
The oats contained:
-1/3 cup raw oats;
-1/3 cup organic 2% milk;
-1/2 cup water (I don’t like runny oatmeal; you can up this amount to 2/3 cup if you do);
Combine in pot over medium heat; stir occasionally to make sure the oats don’t clump. If desired, add vanilla extract right at the end.
I topped with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, a dollop of Trader Joe’s organic crunchy pb (which I just finished 😦 ), as well as a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. Notice how the colors of the oatmeal essentially match my place settings…I think that’s mighty appropriate.
I tend to work in “power hours,” so I graded exams from 8-9 am, then baked a batch of granola bars to freeze for our travels next week. A snack and a blog post later, and it’s back to the grind.
Going to ‘boot camp’ at 11:30 am; I’ll post some of the awesome circuits we do next week. Also to come: I’m probably racing on Saturday 🙂 good stuff ahead.
