Upscale

Good morning! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday – and tomorrow is a very special day  :)  This week will be gone before I know it!

I didn’t mix up a breakfast cookie last night, and I’m kind of sad I didn’t – I woke up wanting that cold cookie right out of the fridge. My breakfast was still good, but I may have to make another breakfast cookie soon.

This may be the most upscale pb & j combination I’ve ever had.

I had oatbran again for the first time in a while and it was good.

  • 1/3 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1 really ripe banana, sliced
  • handful strawberries and raspberries
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp fig spread!

I loved the combination of the almond butter + fig spread! Those flavors go so well together. It was nice addition to my breakfast.

A lot of people were asking about the fig spread, so here it is:

I got this in a prize package from Sweetie Pie a few weeks ago – and it looks like it’s from Whole Foods (you can see the words on the tag). So, if you have a Whole Foods, buy some!  It’s good.

I’ve got to finish watching Saved by the Bell and hit the road  :)

Do you watch tv in the morning?

We usually watch the news while we’re eating breakfast, but lately we’ve been listening to our favorite radio show in the house. I’m not sure how it happened today, but we found a Saved by the Bell re-run on so that’s what we’re watching. It’s a great middle school episode with Ms. Bliss! I know way too much about this show  :)

  1. I love the early episodes with Mrs. Bliss! Hayley Mills is still one of my favorite actresses!

  2. I am watching the Ellen show right now while I eat my oatmeal and read blogs. Love relaxing mornings.

  3. Yes I watch Saved By the Bell too, but I’m not crazy about the middle school & college episodes. I’m all for the classics!

    I also dabble in the Today Show, but it’s so hit or miss.

    • “dabble” – that made me laugh :) We usually watch the Today Show, too, but the news is so depressing so we’re starting to do other things.

  4. I used to watch Saved by the Bell every.single.morning before school for like two years! Before that it was Gilligan’s Island – now it’s The Today Show. Lately though they’ve been annoying me so GMA here I come!

  5. That fig spread is SO GOOD. My local WF usually has samples of it with cheese and I always break the “one sample per customer please” rule on that one ;)

    I LOVED Saved by the Bell! I watch CNN in the morning.

  6. The oats look great! And so does that fig spread. I’ll see if they have it at my Whole Foods :D

    I rarely watch tv, and I don’t really watch it in the morning. When I was little, I would watch Pokemon or Arthur before school, though! Haha those were the days.

  7. mmmmm fig spread! love that.
