Busy day – and a lot of oatmeal…

Hey All –

Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is still having a great weekend.

This morning got off to a weird start… I was hungry, but as I was looking around for breakfast, nothing was attractive. Eventually I settled on oatmeal (what’s new?).

I’m not exactly sure what happened to my oats today – but the oatmeal basically doubled in the pot! Here is what I added:

  • 3/8 cup rolled oats
  • 1/8 cup oat bran
  • 1 scoop aria protein powder
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1 teaspoon of ground flax

I ate half of this and saved the other half for tomorrow.  Here is what the bowl looked like after I added a couple of toppings:

The toppings were:

  • Mix my granola (I love this stuff!)
  • a tiny bit of brown sugar
  • a teaspoon of peanut butter

After breakfast and reading the paper, we eventually headed out to find some antique stores for Ben’s parents to shop in.  We ventured in to Newton Upper Falls, Norwood and a few other towns to seek out antiques. I mostly walked around in the beautiful weather while Ben’s parents shopped. In Norwood I found a great coffee shop and enjoyed an iced coffee with skim milk and a little bit of sugar water.  Perk’s Coffee was a super cute place, and the iced coffee was really good!

I love iced coffee – and today was the perfect day for it, it was 68 degrees as we walked around the main street in Norwood.

After antiquing, we went to the Blue Hills Reservation to show Ben’s parents one of the places that we hike.  After walking around a little bit, we realized that it was well past 2 o’clock and we were all pretty hungry.

For lunch we ventured out to Not Your Average Joe’s – it was new to all of us and we were all very impressed!  Ben and I  enjoyed a crab cake slider…

For lunch I enjoyed half of a  Tuscan grilled chicken sandwich and a house salad with lemon vinaigrette dressing on the side.

The sandwich was very good – it had sun dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, arugula and was served on toasted ciabatta bread. I had the basil pesto aioli on the side. After a couple of bites of the sandwich, I took the chicken off of the bread and ate it “naked”.  The salad was also very good – but I took the cheese off of it.

Here is the sandwich:

After lunch, we went off to Ikea, and then Target. After getting back to our house, Ben and I went off to the driving range to practice our golf swings.

OK, well I’m going to sign off for now.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, ya’ll!
