Ah... Saturday Mornings are so sweet. I slept in until 7:00 am and then lazily read in bed for another 30 minutes. I finished my last Christopher Buckley book- Thank You for Smoking. I have been on a Christopher Buckley tear and have read: Boomsday, Supreme Courtship and Thank You for Smoking. These books are hilarious!
After beginning the day with a little laughter, I had 2 glasses of warm lemon water, and a bowl of Overnight Raspberry Banana Chia Oats! I think the reason I love these so much are because it takes like a huge bowl of pudding first thing in the morning.
Overnight Raspberry Banana Chia Oats
1/3 cup rolled oats1 banana, sliced10 raspberries1 tbsp Ruth's Chia Goodness1/2 a scoop of protein powder (optional)2/3 cups So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk
Mix the above ingredients in a bowl, pop in the fridge overnight and enjoy in the morning.
I have huge cooking plans this weekend and am super excited. On deck this weekend, we are going back to our Tex Mex roots and then traveling afar to Ethiopia! I love, love Ethiopian food and can't wait to experiment in the kitchen. There has also been a request for the World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies and am contemplating making those as well. We shall see....
I want to give a shout out to my nephew Henry who turned 11 today. Happy Birthday Henry!Have a great Saturday and check back soon.
