Hi All –
I’m so excited for our third holiday party of the season! Our friends Gwen and Dave are hosting this holiday shin-dig and we are getting ready for it right now. I made a veggie platter to bring (I’ll post a picture later) the veggies I included are:
- grape tomatoes
- orange peppers
- yellow peppers
And I think that is it… it is pretty full and colorful!
So, this morning for breakfast I made oatmeal – yum. I did not have any kitchen disasters during this oatmeal preparation – thank goodness! Everything turned out very well. I added raisins, slivered almonds, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice once it was all made – oh and a spoonful of Teddy! 🙂 I could not go without my Teddy…
While the oats were in the pot, I added a dash of kosher salt (I never actually add the salt – which is listed as an option in the recipe) and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Yum!

Along with the oatmeal, I had a cup of coffee and a small glass of orange juice.
This afternoon Ben and I went to the gym. I ran and jogged 3.1 miles and then did a two minute cool down. After that I did some weights – lower and upper body. The 3.1 was hard – but it was a 5K in my head! It took me 36 minutes… ugh. I walked .25 miles as a warm up, so if I had done that before starting the 3.1 I guess my time would have been faster. Oh well.
After the gym, Ben and I went to the grocery store to pick up the veggies for tonight’s gathering. I was really hungry and I could feel my blood sugar probably dropping after my run… I checked my purse – not a Zbar to be found! I went to the natural food section, to see if I could find a LaraBar or something to pay for and snack on. The grocery store had NOTHING. I was not pleased.
As soon as we got home – and Ben and I split a LaraBar – I LOVE Larabar’s as my friends know. The bar we had this afternoon was a Ginger Snap! It was so great – and Ben said it tasted like Christmas! I love it 🙂
Soon I will be blogging on Barney Butter and I will write an entry on Larabars. I wish I had time to do it tonight – but I’m now running out the door. Both products ROCK though – and I can’t wait to write about them!
Have a great Saturday night, everyone!
