So far, everything about today is the opposite of yesterday!
- I got up on time
- Roxy was not inside this morning
- It’s not raining!
- I didn’t have any fun dreams last night :(
Of course, I get up on time on my last day of work this week ;) At least it happened and I wasn’t rushing this morning – I didn’t pack my lunch last night, so that gave me enough time to find something to take to work.
I also made a bowl of oatmeal that I haven’t had in a while.
Pineapple Upside Down Oats
Any other time I made this, I used canned pineapple and it was good. But fresh pineapple in this was amazing!
- 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1/2 cup diced pineapple
- 2 Tbsp walnuts
- 1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut
- 1 tsp brown sugar
I normally don’t add any sweeteners to my oatmeal, but the brown sugar in this bowl is so good. When you sprinkle it on top of the hot oatmeal, it melts into this brown sugary syrup (you can see it on the pineapple, too!).
I also bought new cinnamon this weekend.
I normally just buy the store brand of cinnamon, which is between .50 and $1. But I tried this Saigon Cinnamon at a friend’s house a few weekends ago, and it was the best cinnamon I’d ever tasted.
I can’t really explain what the difference is…this one smells like cinnamon, but it also smells a little sweet + hot almost?
This cinnamon is definitely more expensive than the store brand, but it’s so, so good. I think it’s worth it.
Are there certain food items you splurge on?
