Happy Friday! I’m so happy today is Friday and the start of the weekend!
Nick and I are running a 5K tomorrow morning, so I’m excited about that. It’s our first race since the killer 10K trail run and will be much different than that crazy race.
We had to leave the house a bit earlier today so Nick could get to a meeting. I decided that was the perfect reason to mix up an old favorite last night.
I love knowing that breakfast is just waiting for me in the morning.
I still love these breakfast cookies, but the cooler weather has me wanting something warm. That gave me the perfect reason to try something new with my breakfast cookie, and it turned out great!
Last night, I mixed together:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 spoonfuls applesauce
- 1 Tbsp crunchy pb
- pinch of salt
I mixed that up until it was all combined and then spread it out on a salad-sized plate and let it rest in the fridge overnight.
All I want lately is fall flavors and since I don’t have any pumpkin yet, I went with what I had.
I chopped up a local gala apple and microwaved it for a minute with some cinnamon and ginger.
Then I spread some ricotta on my breakfast cookie, added the softened apple, and drizzled it all with some TJ’s pumpkin butter :)
As my Nany would have said: Dee – lish!
I got a question from Tammy the other day when I posted the pictures of my bathroom – she was wondering if we had a claw-foot bathtub.
Well, yes, we do.
And I love it.
And I don’t use it as much as I should.
This was actually in the house when Nick’s parents bought it and Nick moved in AND it used to be the shower. While working on the house (it needed a lot of work when Nick first moved in, which was about a year before we got married and I moved in), they made the bathroom bigger so they could put the corner shower stall in that we have now.
I love having the tub as the tub, but not as the shower. It was so hard to get in and out of since it’s so high off the ground. And I’m clumsy enough that I would have fallen a lot.
It’s probably one of my favorite things in our house.
What’s your favorite thing in your house/apartment or favorite feature of it?
Although I can’t wait to have a bit more storage and a bigger kitchen, I love the charm of our house. It was built either in the late 1930s or early 1940s and actually used to be 2 apartments – 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. According to one of our neighbors down the street, they used these apartments for guys working on the railroad, which makes sense since the tracks are right by the house.
