I Love Fall

by HEAB on October 29, 2009

First off, I must send more love to Zesty for changing my blog header yet again. It’s perfect now, and I love it. Zesty, I promise you no more emails from HEAB. 😉

The rain finally subsided for a few hours yesterday, and I took a little stroll around my neighborhood soaking in all the beautiful fall colors. Since you couldn’t be with me, I took along my camera.





After my lovely walk, I came home to a fall themed bowl of warm goodness.

I made rice cooker oatmeal, and felt a little piggish when I decided on 1 cup dry oats. What can I say? I was hungry. I tried to be more of a Dainty Pig by adding a wee little Honeycrisp apple to the mix. Oh, and let’s not forget the cinnamon, vanilla, and pinch of salt. Our entire downstairs smelled like apple pie by the time my oats were done. Before eating them, I stirred in one scoop of Jay Robb’s vanilla rice protein powder and let the bowl chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Delicious and super satisfying. However, there was no nut butter involved. No worries. I made up for that little mishap later in the day.

I’m a bit obsessed with this combo. If only I’d discovered it back when it was actually warm outside. Thank goodness for my Costco HeatDish!
