Hello friends! Hope your week is going well so far and you are starting to adjust to the time change. I’m on my late shift this week so I’m not really getting to enjoy the benefits of extra daylight, but at least I have all day Friday to bask in the sunshine! I hear we are going to get another warm weekend this weekend and I can’t wait!
Well, the “Clean Out the Fridge/Pantry Challenge” is still going on strong! I’m saving up a little stockpile of eats to share with you guys on the last day so you can see the progression of creativity. It’s just starting to get to the point where I’m having to stretch my brain muscles a bit! 😉
This morning, I indulged in a jar of overnight oats compliments of my dedicated work in “cleaning out” my jar of PB&Co. White Chocolate Wonderful.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 container Siggi’s strawberry yogurt
- 1/2 cup So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
- 1-1 1/2 tablespoons WCW
Oh, and it’s not just you, that is a BIG spoon! Hey, big spoon for a big mouth, right?
Today was an average day at the hospital, though I did have a patient tell me a little joke. Working in the CAT scan department, I get my fair share of “cat” jokes ranging from, “How many cats does it take to do a cat scan?”…by the way the answer is 5 calicos, 3 persians, and 1 tabby….to “What do you do if I don’t have a cat for you to scan?”…seriously? that’s the best you can come up with??
I’ve actually heard this one before, but I think it’s cute and I thought you guys might want to hear. I found this one online, which is pretty close to what he said:A man runs into the vet’s office carrying his dog, screaming for help. The vet rushes him back to an examination room and has him put his dog down on the examination table. The vet examines the still, limp body and after a few moments, tells the man that his dog, regrettably, is dead. The man, clearly agitated and not willing to accept this, demands a second opinion.
The vet goes into the back room and comes out with a cat and puts the cat down next to the dog’s body. The cat sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, poking and sniffing the dog’s body and finally looks at the vet and meows.
The vet looks at the man and says, “I’m sorry, but the cat thinks that your dog is dead, too.”
The man, finally resigned to the diagnosis, thanks the vet and asks how much he owes. The vet answers, “$350.”
“$350 to tell me my dog is dead?!” exclaims the man.
“Well,” the vet replies, “I would only have charged you $50 for my initial diagnosis. The additional $300 was for the cat scan.”I can’t help but giggle a little every time I get to the punch line!
I got out of work a bit late tonight so I went with something super quick and easy for dinner…and of course in line with the “challenge.”
From the beautiful mind of Gabriela from Une Vie Saine, I give you the Creamy Pumpkin Peanut Butter Bowl!
I started drooling over this as soon as I laid eyes on it the other day. All it is is 1 cup of pumpkin puree mixed with 1/4 cup TJ’s peanut flour, cinnamon, and stevia. I topped my bowl with a handful of Kashi Go Lean (which I ate more of while taking pics) and some raisins to round out the meal. The pumpkin and peanut flavors melded perfectly…’twas delicious!
Well, I’m off to bed! It’s about time I went to sleep before midnight this week! “See” you guys back here tomorrow for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday…same bat time, same bat channel!
Heard any good jokes lately? I’m easily amused…feel free to share!
