Easy Election

It’s Election Day 2009! Are you voting this morning?

We are, so I better hurry! We’ll be stopping by on the way to work, so we have to leave a little early from the house.

At least my breakfast was an easy decision.

I elected to have some Pumpkin Banana Reese’s Oats, inspired by K herself  :)



The base had:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup pumpkin, stirred in at end
  • lots of cinnamon

Topped with 1 Tbsp crunchy pb and 1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips.



I’d say this was a winner! It should get me through a busy day at work, too.


Do you vote?


  1. I absolutely vote! The last Presidential election was a really emotional one for me because of how historic it was…it was the first one my could family could vote in since we’ve gotten our citizenship :)

    Beautiful oats!

  2. I’m currently eating my bowl of Reese’s oats while thinking your bowl looks might fine!! Have a great Tuesday :)

  3. I always vote, but not in this election. We just moved and I know nothing about the local politics, so it would be a totally uneducated vote!
    Breakfast looks good!

  4. I had pumpkin oats this morning, as well, though I forgot the nut butter!

  5. Oh my. That oatmeal looks fabulous. I was craving oatmeal yesterday but I had no soymilk or maple syrup so I opted for something else instead :( These photos made me crave it just a little bit more so I may go up to the store and grab a few things. Enjoy your day! xoxo

  6. AHHH you just reminded me that i forgot to mail my ballot!

  7. Those oats look SO good. Love the outside lighting :)

    I totally didn’t know that today was voting day. I’m a bad person.

  8. Yes, I vote!

    Your oats look marvelous and your cat looks…well….fat. Is that just hair, or is she a little portly?

  9. I don’t even think I’m a registered voter, not to mention I’m in the wrong state, soo that’s a big no, haha

  10. Good for you for voting:D

    That oatmeal looks delish!

  11. I loove your cat in the background–too funny! I sure do miss mine :-(

  12. ummm pumpkin reeses oats is GENIUS!!!!!

    are you getting excited for foodbuzz? just a couple days away. have a lovely day girl!

  13. That definitely looks like a winner! Pumpkin oats are just toooo good. I haven’t voted yet because I’m not 18. But I will be in about 3 more weeks :) It can’t come soon enough!!

  14. Awesome looking oats! I have a great idea! I think you should open your own breakfast/oatmeal bar and just serve your breakfast creations. It would be packed every single day! Love that Roxy’s butt is in the pic BTW!

  15. Oh my that oatmeal looks fabulous!

    I did vote. I went to the doctor and voted after.

  16. I do vote, but I’m not during this election. I vote to have your oatmeal for my breakfast tomorrow, does that count :)

  17. gahh. i just got hungry again looking at those oats! :P

  18. happy election day! so crazy that it’s been a year since the last one….

  19. For the last presidential election I was registered to vote, because i did it to late, they wouldnt let me vote, so i didn’t get a chance to this time either! Your oats look amazing :)
