Anyway, I've found something that I love for breakfast. On my workdays I get up at 4:30, have coffee/tea and breakfast, then head to work. By 8 I'm starving. Since I've started this, I don't get hungry until about noon. That means no morning snacking. I like that.
1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup milk (and a dash more, of milk or water -- just a tad thick with only 1/4 cup)
Microwave for 1 minute
add 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter (or almond butter)
add about 1 1/2 tsp (almost a T) of Nutella
Stir and eat. Lately I've also been adding about a 1/2 tsp of coconut oil, to add a healthy fat. It doesn't make much, but 1/2 cup was too much for me. This is the perfect amount, for me anyway. And definitely use milk rather than all water. It is creamy and tastes just like a chocolate oatmeal drop cookie.
Quilting -- I've been asked to make another one block wonder quilt for a magazine! Yay! So I am looking at various panels, thinking they have the best variation. Here are a couple I'm considering. I like one with light, dark, and colors. The first has a lot of light, which could be good. The second doesn't really have dark, but I thought the blue and green would make a nice contrast. If you don't know what I'm talking about when I say One Block Wonder, check this out...
In other news, I received some great pictures from my daughter-in-law. They took another trip to the highlands and recreated a scene from the James Bond movie, Skyfall. Although I am not a movie buff, I thought this was neat.
Another topic-- anyone have bees? One of my co-workers retired and is now into bees and has enough honey to sell. He is using the Flowhive. I want to do this so bad! The hubby has said when we get in our new house, with it's big lot, I can have a hive. I know there is lots to learn and it isn't easy but it is so interesting and you get your own local honey!
We still don't have a Christmas tree up yet......is that bad? No kids to enjoy it, don't have plans for a Christmas get together here either......
