Good morning everyone! Two more days ‘til the long weekend…which also happens to be my Birthday weekend! The big day is actually on Sunday but Ben has something very fun planned for us on Saturday (which I accidently figured out) but either way, I am sooooo excited. I can’t wait! I’ll share with you what it is later 😉
So let me tell you – I was so excited for breakfast this morning! I think I first saw this idea on Kath’s blog a couple months ago and I have been waiting very patiently to make it…Peanut Butter Jar Oatmeal! Basically you pour your oatmeal in a nearly empty peanut butter jar (or in this case, an almost empty Barney Butter jar) stir and chow down!
I remember whispering “genius…” to myself when I first read about this idea…and it is – this was amazing!
There was approx 1 tablespoon left in the bottom and on the sides of my jar, and the warm oatmeal melts everything so it swirls beautifully.
Plus, it’s just a lot of fun to eat breakfast out of a peanut butter jar 🙂
Next time you have a nearly empty jar – give this a try!!
Now for lunch today, I’ve got a guest coming to eat with me…my Mom! She works in the school system and has the summers off, so we’re able to eat lunch together whenever we like 🙂 What did I pack? A sampler style lunch!
1 Cherry Cashew PURE Bar (never tried this flavor & am super excited!)
1 container cantaloupe
Finally, I’ve got a lemon chiffon yogurt.
As I’ve said before – I really do love these types of lunches because I can snack on them all throughout the afternoon. I never get a chance to get too hungry, because I’ve always got something to eat!
Oh gosh – I don’t usually add peanut butter/almond butter to my oatmeal and let me tell you it is filling. I am stuffed!! Time to roll myself to work 🙂 have a great day everyone!
What are your feelings on “bars” such as PURE bars, CLIF bars, Lara bars, etc.? Which ones are your favorite? How often do you eat them? Anyone ever try those SoyJoy bars?
