Visions of Thailand

This morning’s breakfast was out of this world!


Tom Ka Gai Inspired Oatmeal

I love Tom Ka Gai, or chicken coconut soup, but it’s been years since I’ve had any. Well, I woke up this morning dreaming of Thai food…weird, huh? I’m pretty sure it was the HEABlet talkin’. 😉 So, I cooked 1/2 cup old fashioned oats on the stovetop with 1 cup HEABified coconut milk and a pinch of salt. Once my oats were all nice and creamy, I removed them from the heat and topped my bowl with unsweetened shredded coconut and a big dollop of chili-limon pistachio butter. Say what? Yep, that’s right, chilli-limon pistachio butter, and it’s amazing. The flavors in this bowl worked so well together, and I can’t wait to eat it again!

My friend Sylvia (who recently started her own blog, Life Is Good With Food) and I started emailing back and forth this summer after she started reading HEAB, and yesterday, I received the most thoughtful package from her.


Thanks Sylvia!

She sent us so many goodies, including tons of tea, onesies for the HEABlet, yam cookies, homemade sun-dried tomatoes, the amazing pistachio butter (made by Sylvia herself), and all sorts of other items, my favorite being the following…


Little weeble-wobbles. They are just so cute and will definitely be on display in the baby’s room!

Before I go, I wanted to acknowledge a few other wonderful ladies who have sent gifts for the HEABlet.

Emily from Sugar Plum sent us some adorable outfits paired with striped tights and threw in a box of Pop-Tarts for me. Ha, nice touch Emily! 😉 Please check out Emily’s blog for the most beautiful dessert recipes and photos. Seriously, I have no doubts that she will be famous someday. :)


Thanks Emily – I love the tights!

Last week, the following arrived from my favorite Fitnessista


BabyLegs Leg Warmers. Love them Gina…too bad they don’t make them in adult sizes. 😉

Thanks again for everyone’s kindness and generosity. CD, myself, and the baby feel so loved.

What’s your favorite Thai dish?
