This morning started out great! I got up early (thought I had to be in lab only to find out that lab was cancelled), and made a delicious breakfast to kick start my Saturday 🙂
No Bake Cookie Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 1/4 cup of milk
- 2 tsp flax meal
- 1 tsp cocoa
- 1 Tbsp raisins
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- toppings: coconut, peanut butter and crumbled graham crackers
Cook oatmeal according to package with milk instead of water on the stovetop. I have found that oatmeal tastes better and has a much more appealing texture when cooked on the stovetop. Once you add the oats, add flax meal, cocoa, raisins, and brown sugar. Continue to cook. Then add toppings. Enjoy.
This only serves 1 person, so you can double, triple, quadruple as needed. I wouldn’t recommend making more than 4 servings at once.
A lot of you might already know that I have a cat. But not just any cat, THE BEST CAT EVER!
Charlie Chronicles Part II
He waits for me to come home…and usually he will tell me everything that he did that day. Sleep…eat….sleep….eat
He likes tissue paper. For a mellow cat, he loves to play!
His favorite spot in the apartment is the sliding glass door. He’s got a comfy rug to lay on and watch all the squirrels in the back yard.
His most playful time is night. Sometimes he brings Mr. Mouse to bed. I usually hide it under my pillow to get him to sleep.
He is fascinated by the tub. It makes gurgly noises when it drains, so he will get in and just stare it….for hours.
He’s very cuddly. I like to say that Charlie and I are watching Greys Anatomy, but really I’m watching Greys and Charlie is snoozing.
I call this “The Superman”. He likes to sleep with his arms stretched out.
Today, Charlie went crazy! Because, we had a visitor:
I believe its a Penn State squirrel 🙂
Charlie didn’t budge. He was going to make sure that this little guy knew his place, hehe.
Hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend! Only one more weekend until Thanksgiving!
