This weekend was cold and rainy. Therefore, my Chucks and I didn’t venture out much. However, when the sun came out late Sunday afternoon, we were back outside. Seriously, when the sun is out, the weather in northern Michigan this time of year is perfect. I want to move here…until the local residents start talking about winter. I’m a southern girl and would never survive. Anyway, besides walking, I’ve also been enjoying simple one-bowl meals…
Favorite oat combo of the week: Quick cooking oats made with water + lots of cinnamon and topped with 1 TBSP of butter and a TBSP of flax seed meal. I prefer quick cooking oats over old fashioned rolled oats. It’s not the faster cooking time, but a texture thing. The quick cooking oats cook up thicker and remind me of oat bran…which is sold NO WHERE around here.
Yesterday’s lunch consisted of a bowl of Lazy Girl Guacamole. Stir together one mashed avocado with 2 to 4 TBSP of salsa. Serve with chips.
Enjoy by water if possible.
Happy Chuck Taylor Tuesday.
