Sunday Splits

What is it about Sundays? They start off so calm and smooth, but then they just fly by! I can’t believe it’s already 2 pm.

Nick had to go early to do sound today at church, so we didn’t make our normal Sunday breakfast.

It had been a while since I made Banana Split Oatmeal, and I had some bananas that were at perfect ripeness this morning.

I cooked up a batch of chia oats –

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • cinnamon

I split a banana lengthwise in a bowl and spooned on the oatmeal once it was cooked.

Then I topped it with a few raspberries, a Tbsp of cinnamon raisin pb, and a drizzle of local honey.

I really like having oatmeal like this – it cools down so fast after getting it out of the bowl so I can eat even sooner  :)

I left for church a bit early, so I also stopped and got me and Nick a drink.

I got Nick an iced blueberry tea, and I decided to try their iced coffee with some skim milk added. I loved it! No sugar, no flavors…nothing but good, perfectly-brewed iced coffee + milk. It was just what I wanted this morning, and so much cheaper than getting a latte or something else.

We came home for lunch and split some of the dinner leftovers from last night.

Pasta leftovers are the best!

I put some eggplant slices in the toaster oven to heat them up and keep them crispy while Nick made some more garlic bread. All that was left was to heat up the green beans/broccoli and leftover pasta!

Easy. And this bread is really good. I’m already sad that it’s almost gone. It’s so seedy!

I’ve got one load of laundry washing and one load drying right now and a full day ahead!

  • Finish laundry
  • Vacuum upstairs
  • Make dinner
  • Bake cookies

I guess I better get moving!
